Left Adventure Boot- Sedici Maximo

For the positives first:  I really like the size of them, meaning they are not too tall like motocross boots or too short. These motorcycle boots have two easy to use latches or fasteners that work well to get comfortable snug fit. They fit my feet pretty well and that is big for me as many shoes just don’t jive with my unique size and shaped feet. They are waterproof, look pretty cool and they are at an affordable price point. I think I paid a little over a hundred dollars, although their site is currently selling them for $149. but still a good deal either way.

Now for the negatives: I have read that they are not all leather, just the upper part- they do say that in the features but one would think they were all leather except the rubber sole- this is not the case. A little marketing spinning going on here. The sole, on my pair at least, seem to have faded or is light black color and doesn’t look great- I’m aware it not a fashion show but wouldn’t mind the sole matching and not looking faded. I don’t know if I got them that way, but it’s not that big of deal but thought it is worth mentioning. Take a look at pics (click on them to see them larger) to see what I am talking about. I pretty much just ride in these boots, maybe walk into a store to get something, but not a whole lot of walking in these to say the least, with that said the insole has already came apart so I had to buy a new pair of insoles for the boots, no big deal but they shouldn’t have gone to crap that soon. I have not even had them for a full season of riding.

Hopefully this gives you some insight into these boots, overall I am glad I bought them and think they are decent value. Time will tell if I still feel this way.

Good luck with adventure boot shopping and I hoep the product review has helped- thanks for reading!

New 2016 Kawasaki KLR650 Camo Version

New for 2016: Kawasaki has introduced the KLR 650 CAMO Version!!

Thanks Kawasaki for introducing a cool dual sport to the mix of adventure motorcycle market. The KLR is a staple in the industry and has a huge fan base of adventure riders and I’m really glad they are keeping it fresh, functional and still relatively simple. First off the digital camo graphics look just awesome and is one bad ass dual sport bike.

Now what is the difference between the KLR650 and the KLR650 Camo?

Just the color / graphics? I did a side by side on the specs and don’t see anything that make the Camo version any different. Please reply below and let me know what I’m missing, if anything.

 

Camo seems to be the coolest color but Kawasaki alos offer this bike in – Candy Lime Green & Ebony colors as well.
