I have only had these boots a couple months maybe, and already really like them. They are really stiff when brand new, but what else would you expect? They are apparently very protective although I luckily haven't tested them that way. They broke in and became more comfortable and they are still breaking in, so I expect them to become even more comfortable. Only had them in very light rain and they stayed totally dry, my feet hardly ever get hot but I can see how these could get warm. Will be a really good cold wet weather boot, been blazing hot here lately and every thing else sweats before my feet. I will try to update after riding in more weather conditions.

This Shoei helmet, the Hornet DS Sonora is a great helmet. Nice combination of features and very good styling. Does not pull from the wind much, but the peak does not block much sun. Great comfort and fits exceptionally well. Very clear, distortion free visor. Great venting and air flow. Highly recommend this helmet for any type of dual sport users!
