I have always ridden with my leather cowboy boots. I was always
planning on getting a pair of motorcycle boots ... which was always in
the future.

So after reading about Gary's (Opalsboy) accident, I decided it was time ... so Gary was on the forefront of me mind today.

I was visiting my son away at college and stopped by NewEnough (
http://www.newenough.com ).

I original was going to buy the

1) Sidi OnRoad
The boot was tall and opened/closed the opposite side of my pants which made it more difficult opening/closing.

2) Sidi Canyon
The boot was a little short and still opened/closed the opposite of my pants. They were a little easier to work (except for ratchet strap which I could not read sealed instructions). The boot seemed to stay very warm and they did not have a 46 boot.

3) Sidi B2
Surprising they had a 46 boot on this brand new boot which I thought I would checkout for sizing. The boot was tall, but it opened on the same side of my pants which made getting on and off with my pants much much easier. After I put the boot on, it fit like a glove and everytime I walked it seemed like I could feel the air movement. I do not know why or how but my feet were more cooler and comfortable ... so I purchased them ( http://tinyurl.com/2frgyb8 ).

PostSubject: Boots - Sidi B2 - Tour Master Solution   Sidi B2 Goretex boot I_icon_minitimeFri May 07, 2010 8:04 am

My wife dropped her SilverWing a few years ago and the boots she was wearing most definitely saved her from a broken leg. As it was she sufferred a pretty severe bruise as the boots did their job - absorbing and spreading the impact load across a wider area.

Tourmaster Solution WP - Comfortable for walking, We don't take them off when we travel. Zipper and velcro closure on the inside of the leg. The WP is for Water Proof and they are. Our feet have stayed dry even in some pretty good frog stranglers. We ride in some pretty high temps and the feet also stay cool. I don't recommend them for long periods (hours) of standing in flag lines at Patriot Guard events, but otherwise good protection.

I was looking and the tourmaster Solution boots myself.
But I have a wide foot (EE at least). And could not find that they had ANY wide boots.

Do you know of any waterproof boots in a wide?

MaxB,

Here's a link to a good article reviewing several boots.

http://www.roadrunner.travel/article-6797.php

"Road Runner Motorcycle Touring & Travel" is a really good magazine. If you subscribe to one magazine this is the one you should choose. http://www.roadrunner.travel/
