Dennis,
Received the Dirts last week. Rode around in them and am very satisfied with the fit and dexterity. Fitted a more aggressive tire to the bike and had been thoroughly enjoying the red clay Hawaiian firmament. I had a mysterious no start issue develop after an off pavement ride, and was in the process of pin pointing it when my key was stolen from my ignition in broad daylight! Now the bike really won't start! Suspecting the thief would return, I took the battery out of the bike and locked it up. Sure enough, the next morning, I found a battery sticking out of the battery box! Now I have to spring for a new ignition, gas cap and seat lock.

Wow, who would have thought something like this could happen in paradise? Good call on taking the battery out

? on Boots

D,

? I am interested in a pair the Rev'it boots but have experienced issues with boots that zip on the side due to a high arch. I normally where a 42 or 43. Any suggestions or comments?

Let me get this straight - do you heed a boot with high arch? Both RIVAL and APACHE boots are very roomy inside and usually it's people with extremely skinny feet who cannot fit in them right.

Yes, typically I cannot get a side zip boot to zip past may ankle due to the arch in my foot. I usually need lace boots when I can find them and after 10 years my Techniks are looking pretty raggy.

No skinny feet here. Short and wide.

APACHE is your best bet then. I have them and they have plenty of room in the arch. Cheers,

Hello there,

this question may have been asked several times, but i frankly talking i cannot look all 100 pages to locate my answer.

The problem in that case is that i find like 4-5 different winter Revit gloves and dont know which fit to my conditions. Those that i am more into are the Kelvin.

The temperatures that i will mainly use them are 5-15celcius .

Can we please put in a row the below gloves from warmest to less warm ?
1. Kelvin
2. Capri
3. Unix
4. Tempest (although those look too bulky)

I dont want to exaggerate and act like i would drive in -20c , but my IXS "winter" gloves are not enough when talking about 10c temperatures.

Thank you in advance.

Ararm,

That's an easy one:

1. KELVIN and TEMPEST - the warmest two in your list. TEMPEST actually feels thinner but it's being discontinued so availability is extremely limited.

2. BASTION, ALASKA AND ORION - these 3 are almost as warm as the gloves above. Gore-Tex liner is a definite bonus if you want guaranteed waterproofness. My favorite thing about Gore gloves is that the liner actually stays in even if your hands are slightly damp.

3. ZOOM. Entry level glove that works great for $99 but not as great as higher priced REV'IT! gloves.

4. UNIX is discontinued and CAPRI was never available on US market

Keep in mind that you can get the warmest ski glove in the world and your hands can still get cold at 10c due to numerous factors - wind chill, speed, time, your heck, boots etc. You must make sure every part of your body is protected from cold. Cheers,

D.

Any suggestions for gloves that would work well with the cuffs on the Sand jacket?

I had a set of Sand gear and I used the Jerez gloves. Still have the gloves (I sold the Sand gear to another inmate here). They are WAY overbuilt, very tough, and comfortable.

Not sure if you're looking for an under cuff or gauntlet style glove, but in my case I use the Comet gloves with my Sands and they work really well.

Good news is that thanks to SAND sleeve design you can use pretty much any gloves with it. I prefer using COMET for Adventure riding in warm weather, DIRT for regular street riding and ALASKA GTX for cold rainy days.

Yes they are. I just like the fact that all Gore-Tex gloves come with "Guaranteed to keep you dry" warranty, so if they ever fail to stay waterproof, they will be replaced by Gore regardless of when you purchased them.

Question Are the snaps replacable?

I bought a Cayenne Pro and in a git off(which broke my left arm), the right inside snap on the supposed waterproof pocket will not work. I say supposed because it looks to me like the rubber zipper protectors used on the bottom pockets should have been used on the top pockets, which have the membrane. I had a cayenne (which paramedics cut off me last year, not a good year) that IIRC had better waterproof pockets. I bought it elsewhere, but did not know about you. I am thinking about either Cayenne Pro pants or Turbines, but will have to wait till after the holidays. I will probably try to glue some velcro on, the sticky stuff lasts about a week to a month, depending on rain and sweat. The new lining is awesome by the way, this is my three season jacket, and I have worn it down to mid 20s F ok, couldn't do that with the last one. Good luck with the shop, I used to work in a specialty retail shop and know it is not easy.
