Dainese Fulcrum C2 Gore-Tex Boots Review

web-DaineseBoots

To get my seal of approval, touring boots need to be comfortable, durable, waterproof, easy to get on and off (yet stay securely on my feet while riding), and capable of protecting my feet and ankles, with their 26 bones, 33 joints and more than 100 muscles, tendons and ligaments on each side, in the event of the unexpected. For ...

Joe Rocket Women's Trixie Waterproof Boots Review

Joe-Rocket-Trixie-overall

Motorcycle boots are always a compromise between style, comfort and protection. We want them to look good, to feel good on and off the bike, and to prevent or minimize injury in a crash, but few boots excel in all three areas. My wife, Carrie, picked out a pair of Joe Rocket’s Trixie Waterproof Boots because they’re shorter than most ...

BMW Allround Motorcycle Boots Review

web-Boots_4859

Nobody should debate the importance of good footgear, whether it’s for dancing, hiking, playing tennis or riding a motorcycle. Years ago I met a rider on a chopper with a foot clutch who prided himself on riding barefoot; I can’t say I’d recommend that. If something happens, be it falling off, slamming your foot down in a sandy corner or ...

With the performance, technology and comfort of today’s adventure touring motorcycles, one bike really can do it all.

Dainese Long Range D-WP Boots Review

Dainese-Long-Range-Boots

These days, motorcycle boots are as specialized as motorcycles themselves, with different styles for sport/track riding, touring, dual-sport/adventure riding, full-on motocross and all points in between. A high-quality pair of waterproof touring boots offer the most versatility, as I’ve found with the Dainese Long Range D-WP Boots that I have worn almost daily for six months. Designed with just enough ...

Joe Rocket Big Bang 2.0 Boots Review

JoeRocket-BigBang2.0-studio

Imelda Marcos, the former first lady of the Philippines, was infamous for having 3,000 pairs of shoes. I don’t have that many, but I’ll admit it: I have a problem. And not just shoes, but boots. Like a lot of guys, I can’t seem to throw anything out. Even if a pair of boots has been buried in the back ...

Wearing boots on a bike is a no-brainer, but there are times you don’t want a few pounds of leather and rubber hanging from each hoof. Like when you want to tootle into town, then take in the scene on foot. OK, you could ride in your favorite low tops and sacrifice your feet in a get-off, but you’re smarter ...

Adventure touring is king these days. Sales are up, model lines are expanding and, as Clem points out in this month’s Road Tales, dreams of around-the-world travel are widespread. Even though most adventure bikes never leave the pavement, many are kitted out with hand guards, skid plates, Baja-style lights and farkles galore! It’s all part of the look and lifestyle, ...
