Need help finding Gaerne Boot dealer?

I will drive to Florida from Canada, crossing over to Hyw 81, and then on to 95. Can anyone point me to a dealer on or not to far from that route, that sells Gaerne boots, specifically the Protech. I would like to be able to try them on and buy them on site, not wait for them to ship etc.

I'm also thinking these are OK.http://www.gaerneusa.com/shop/waterproof-explorer. 6 hours and no reply. How do they, Gaerne, stay in business?

Looking at a few reviews online, it seems the Explorer is not all that waterproof. Check out the Sidi On Road Touring. I have had mine about 18 months. Even through a typical Vancouver wintere (way wet), my feet have stayed dry.

Looking at that one too. Know any dealers in my path?

Also looking at Alpinestars Scout WP. Anyone know where I can try them? I'm a size 12.5 US - 13.

Bob, not too sure about dealers enroute. But, book a hotel room a week into your trip and have Rider's Discount, or New Enough or someone like that ship them to you c/o the hotel you have the room booked at.

When I bought my Gaerne boots, I called them directly to find a dealer. They told me that there are very few dealers that stock them, especially the Explorer and especially in these economic conditions.

He did say however that just about any mc accessories dealer can special-order them and that they fit very true to street-shoe sizing.

I ended up buying them from motorcycle superstore.
