How would you compare the Alpinestars Durban and Scout with the Gaerne Oiled boots? Those are the three boots most appealing to me, although the cost of the Durbans is a bit tough to swallow. My bike is my primary summer transport—I try to leave the truck parked from May through September—as well as a way to explore places that may or may not be good places for 500 pounds of BMW, and the occasional multi-day tour. I've been riding in a pair of Oxtar Matrix boots on pavement, on lovely class 4 roads that only qualify as "road" by legal technicality, and a lot in between. I'd like something that provides more protection from injury while still being useable to walk around the campground, and Sidi boots don't seem to fit my feet (I've got two pair of size-42 Oxtars that fit great, a pair of size-42 Joe Rockets that fit OK, and a pair of size-42 Sidis that work pretty well for 20-minute track sessions but need to quickly come off my feet after that).
