Icon 1000 Elsinore Motorcycle Boots

I bought these beauties with my own precious dollars and I’m breaking my guideline (not a rule) about reviewing only gear submitted for that purpose, mostly because these boots are a limited production run and if you don’t get ’em… Continue Reading →

Klim Traverse Pants

It took an exhaustive search to find these pants. I think I tried every pair of motorcycle pants in the store, and most definitely in the women’s section. When I saw these tucked behind the oversized display of men’s jackets,… Continue Reading →
