Adventurer Pants

Thanks for the suggestion Schtum and great picture..I am looking at bringing the Adventurer Pants back... we are going to test market some samples later this year... last time they did not get much interest but as you say the Adventurer market has grown in the USA...

Paul - I don't know what your break-even point is for the pants but I think that should they be of the same quality as the rest of your gear (and I'm sure they would indeed be) you would have no problems selling a boat-load of them here on ADV at the very least. I for one would def be interested in a pair.

I would of course be more than happy to help test a pair a pair for you

Pants

The problem with pants is the huge duty, production run minimums and the fact that motorcycle pants are not worn by the majority of riders.

Import duty is now over 27% on waterproof pants into the USA ..and with prices going up 18% across the board this year we are struggling to hold our prices. If we do another pants style it is a sizable investment.. Not that I am not ready to make this leap, just that it has to be the right design or it will be like burning 3 GS's in the front yard with no insurance, you all can relate to how much that would hurt..

Have fun..

Talking Thanks Mom LOL

Action shots maybe...I'm riding the GS instead of the XR650R 'cause my action ain't what it used to be and keeping up with the young guys is where I'm thinking of getting hurt...I'll take my pig of a beemer and not get so much action!

Got mine yesterday, thanks Paul! I would have gotten it a couple of days earlier but I was down in the Black Hills riding for a few days. Had a blast...of course!

Tried to get some good pics of the jacket but it looks like all of them were too far away to show the gear very well. Sounds like a good reason to go back to me.
