Used Tourances Free in Fairbanks

About 30-40% tread remaining. Took them off my 1150GS 2 years ago before riding down to Oregon.
If someone wants them, email me at
virga74@gmail.com

If not taken in a week they go to the dump.

Santiago Boots and Wolfman Tankbag

I'm looking to buy a pair of BMW Santiago Boots (or TCX version) and a Wolfman Rainier Tankbag.
Anyone know of a vendor who carries both. I'd like to combine the order to save on shipping.
Thanks.

I like the hike/bike concept.
What is the ankle protection like in these. Is there any actual armor or crush protection beyond what a typical heavy leather hiking boot offers?
