Update: Boots and Gloves Arrive

Got the boots last week as well as the gloves. Both turned out well. The Sidi boots fit fine and are top notch. The only thing I will advise is that where such tall boots takes an adjustment period. I have to make sure I angle my foot down enough when shifting or I will not engage the shifter properly. The boots are plenty comfortable for walking around and I imagine will get better with time. after wearing them while riding, anything else feels naked, like when not wearing a helmet when you are used to wearing one.

The Icon gloves are fine too, slightly snug for 2xl gloves, but they offer my dexterity than my Tourmaster Cold-Tex gloves. I also like the knuckle armor and the visor wipe.

So, now that I have my stuff in and I have used them for a few rides, I have to say I am happy to have new stuff and it's a vast improvement. The First Gear Scout Jacket is a fine jacket and takes a little getting used to as it has some armor and is more snug than I am used to, but I did remove the liner as the weather is starting to warm up and I do not need it. The fit is better without as well. So that is it, until next time. Oh yeah, thank you to BMW MOA for the Superstakes.

Thank for reading my blog.
