I bought them 2 and a half years ago from the NEC, when I was riding a 125, but now their not water-proof, look tatty, and have a hole in the back of them. I've been looking at boots today, but really cant find any within my...

    Hi everyone. Well, after a ride from Thurso, to Chesterfield (with snow for the first 40 odd miles), by the time I got to Gretna, I realized that I was covered up to my knee with white road salt - or whatever it is that is put on the road these days when it's icy/cold/snowy etc. Instead of...

    Just got me some TCS (was Oxtar) Infinity boots for £160 from Lamba motorcycles. Very comfy and look good on/off road - also rated well by MCN. Reading the new BMW 2008 rider equipment catalogue today - notice that BMW Santiago boots look similar to the TCS Infinity. So does the tech spec. In...

    Hello I am now looking for some NEW boots. Saw some great ones at BMW - but after the way they acted and treated the repair of my bike - I'm avoiding that shop. I have a budget of approx ?130 for a new high pair of boots - in black I think. Saw some in J & S that looked ok. Looked on their...

    I know this is likely to be down to personal choice and what fits, but has anyone got any experience of BMW boots? Am looking at the all round ones for about ?120. Wondering how they compare to, say, Hein Gericke stuff?? Ta Nik

    Yup,..That time of year again and need to got some waterproof boots. Going to be wearing the boots all day everyday so must be light and comfortable off the bike as well as on. Not too heavy or bulky. Must go under the trousers. Only one that I've tried that seem to fit the bill are the Daytona...

    Hello everyone, some months ago i bought some motocross boots (because i like the looks and the level of protection) but as much as i try i can't seem to break them in so that i can even change gear in them let alone ride the Dakar. What's the secret? I'm sure some of you guys (and girls) wear...

    I have been looking at getting myself a decent pair of boots, (I'm currently wearing German Para's). I like the look of the Hein Gericke TRG Rally-Boot, and was wondering if there is anybody with any experience of these, or indeed any other boots they can recommend. :think: :think: :cheers:
