Anyone have experience with their motorcycle boots?
I had a pair of these;
Very comfortable and waterproof until I had them resoled after four years. I believe the cobbler must have penetrated the Gortex lining because one leaked like a sieve afterwards.
I'll be replacing them this year with this model;
I had wanted a set of Bates leathers since i was 10 years old. 4 years ago, i found myself in Long Beach, and i finally visited Bates. I was measured up for a jacket, pants, boots, and gloves. Whole hog. I went with my road name on the left side of the jacket, front and rear zipper vents, checkerboard on the front and rear, and white stripes on the jacket. Pants, gloves, boots just standard fair fit to my size.When I first saw the title I was thinking of Bates race leathers. I had no idea there was a cheap copycat company using their name. On my Bucket list is getting a custom jacket or set of Bates riding leathers. I can actually drive to their shop and be fitted.
