Goretex Boots

Last Christmas Motorcycle Man & Scooterpie Jr bought me ladies Triumph Tritex waterproof boots. They worked like a charm for 8 months and were very comfortable. The boots also came with a great 1 year warranty & assurance from the local dealer that they stand behind their product. Late August I noticed that they where coming apart on the instep. Off I went to the dealer and he was awesome. He didn't have my boot size in stock unfortunately and had to order them. I was able to keep the original boots until they came in so I wasn't sacrificing foot safety.

There was a little wrinkle in the warranty process, Triumph stopped making my boots. So now a conundrum what's next? The dealer went above and beyond to make me happy and I actually ended up with a better quality GoreTex boot at no extra charge other than the difference in the tax.

The boot is a GoreTex TCX Lily. They fit like a glove and are extremely comfortable. The reviews I have read have all been very positive. They are rated as waterproof, so here's hoping!

Those look like nice boots. Hope they are waterproof.

I have waterproof boots too BUT the water comes in from the top and just stays pooled up on the bottom, but they don't leak

wear your trousers over the boots!

Or wear "gators" like those used by cross country skiers. I think LL Bean sells them still.

Nothing gets by those!

Today was the test! It was a torrential downpour and my feet were dry! I do need to wear warmer socks I think because my feet were feeling a tad chilled because of the wind.

Gators - I think I need to get some of those babies.

Very nice service from the dealer. It says a lot about them. Most motorcycle boots don't seem to have much tread on them, How are these?

Gaiters, I have a pair sitting in my office right now. I use them when I go x-country skiing.

The tread is so-so. I can see after probably 6 months of riding it will be a smooth surface on the sole, its not like I am dragging my feet across the pavement either. At this point all I am wanting are nice warm dry feet.

The service was phenomenal. I ended up with a better boot in the end which was awesome.
