    Hi all,

    I am in a need for new boots and I would like to try Gaerne (Balance Oiled) and Forma (Adventure) -boots before making decision.
    Do you know where I could find these brands in SF bay area?

    In regards to Forma, we are new to the USA and we are slowly developing our dealer network. So unfortunately, we don't have representation in SF area at the moment. Let me know if you have a preferred dealer who we can approach? For any further information relating to the Forma Adventure boots, feel free to contact our very experienced dealer 'atomic-moto.com', ...or myself directly at darren@formabootsusa.com
    Cheers

    I am also looking for a retailer. The one listed on the Forma site near my home said they do not carry the boots. Are there any stores that carry them in Phoenix AZ?
    Thanks

    Did you ever find a local source for Forma boots? I travel to SFO for work on occasion and would like to see these boots up close.
    thanks

    I called one of the locations listed in AZ and the owner said he did not carry them so I was not sure how accurate that Forma site is. I ended up calling Forma directly and spoke with them. Prices are the same everywhere, even on-line and they are trying to get into more retail locations. Boots are something I jsut don't like to buy on-line though. I would like to try them on first. Sounds like they have a easy process to return for a different size though if they do not fit.

    I have a pair of the balanced oiled Garne's....awesome boot.
    Comfortable ,Affordable , look good and best of all wear well.
    3 years on my feet and still wearing strong.
    I wouldn't question buying another pair.

    Update: I ended up buying them from Revzilla. Ordered on a Wednesday morning, they were at my door 3PM on Friday for a ride the next morning. So far I really like them. Need more testing though. :)
