    I've been browsing the boot threads and did not find the BMW "Biker Boot" mentioned. My local BMW dealer has one last pair in stock, my size, and says they do not make them any more. He says they are waterproof with a Gortex 'like' liner and only partial leather. They seem to have pretty good protection, but not as bomber as the Kalahari boot. I tried the First gear boots. SUCK! Very uncomfortable and don't breathe for shit. Bind in the ankles. But VERY thick leather. The new BMW Gortex fairy boots, very comfortable but not enough protection. These 'Biker' Boots look like the Gortex boots mentioned in the threads, but do not have "Gortex" lable on the side. Info Please! Thanks

    beats me. I just found the pic. as i recall they didn't seem all that robust when i saw 'em, but you might think they're good. They weren't on the market very long, for whatever reason.
