Dakar winter/cool weather (not waterproof. has huge vents for when you get warmed up)
Mojave summer/hot weather (mesh)
both over the boot style.

IMO the Mojave series does not last very long.

personally use Dakar winter and summer (from 30 to 110..)
last longer under abuse

Any of you guys ever think abt posting up GPS tracks of where y'all ride out there in the upper desert? Maybe some waypoints of the 'interesting' stuff to see out there?

We kinda got something like that goin in the Laying Down Tracks section for Arkansas..would be nice to have for if and when we may venture out that way.

doc, that will be great to have the tracks of every ride on page 1.

it will be later since my plate is full (2 dead bikes), setting up my current ride, the holiday obligations, getting ready for another baja ride, carrizo ride, noobs rally, blah, blah, blah.; good to see if others can post up theirs.

For you really cheap bastards you can order direct from Kim website and avoid CA tax. Better color selection too, at least in Chinook.

I prefer in-the-boot. Chinook and Baja. Harder to melt boot than fabric.

I hope nobody waits that long to go after their dreams. It may be to late.
