Do any of you guys wear any of the following model boots? I'd like to at least have a look in person before making up my mind and ordering online.

Sidi Canyon
BMW Santiago
BMW Allround
BMW Pro Touring 2

Jamie
Are you looking to buy just one boot, or the set?

I've got some good ones that I got from revzilla. I think they have free return shipping if the sizing is off.

Dawn's got some BMW ones but I don't know which model. I think she's taking them with her this weekend though as she's riding her new guzzi back from STL.

You might wanna check GrassRoots BMW up in Cape, they seem to have a pretty good selection, and it's a nice ride up Hwy 51.

If you have any plans to be in east TN, definately check out Mini Mike's store in telico plains.

I have the Aerostitch Combat Touring Lites. They are made by Sidi, and are great boots. They fit well, are very heavy leather and can be resoled. I woudl buy them again in a minute. I have been very pleased with these, and I have tried several other brands that just did not hold up.

Dawn's BWM ones looked almost exactly like the pair of alpinestars I had. CycleGear used to carry a lot of alpine stars, but I haven't gone there to look for gear in awhile.

you might check with the triumph dealer out by bumpus harley, they might have some non-fringe boots.

Dinner has generally been on Thursdays at 6:30pm, but the last few months have been real hit-or-miss. I'm not sure if a change of day would work or if people are just getting bored with showing up...

Quite often, we make the noob pick the place. Let us know your favorite place to eat in town and give us a date.

On that note, I won't be free this Thursday due to work.

Would love to do Windy City but not compatible w/ earning a paycheck...

BTW
I am on my 2nd pair of Alpinestars Web GoreTex & love them!
Bill got a pair recently too.

They have kept my feet dry in torrential downpours & they are breathable.

Breathable is good. My Sidi Adventure Rains are great in winter down to the 20's and waterproof but leave alot to be desired in summer heat. I use the Gore Tex Danners...
