    Yeah that was probably not the right wording.

    Thank you for these in-depth responses, I'm kind of excited now to order on Black Friday, if they have that type of sale at least!

    I have had really good experiences with Revzilla over the years. Recently, however, I stopped in to see the small retail outlet that Atomic Moto has here in Bend. I met the owners and some of the local (serious) riders who test their gear. On their recommendation I purchased a pair of Alpinestars Toucan Goretex boots. I have always been a Sidi guy but this was one of the best purchases I have made in some time. Everything they say about the product is 100% accurate. No BS. No sales hype.
    To keep their overhead low they have a small retail space. Their real focus and expertise is online sales. I cannot recommend these folks more highly. They are great to deal with, know their stuff, use the gear they sell and offer top notch customer service. Check out some of their product review videos.

    I think you will be very pleased. They are now my go-to supplier.

    I'll give a +1 for Atomic Moto as well. The owner (?), Brian, posts a lot of his gear opinions on ADVRider and he seems to really be a straight shooter with honest information - not some guy trying to sell whatever is on his shelves. Customer service has always been top notch in my couple transactions with them.

    On a somewhat related note . . . now is a good time to check out the European online retailers. With the weak Euro, gear seems to run 25-40% cheaper. For example, bikerland.de has the Sidi Adventure GoreTex boots for $283, versus about $550 to buy domestically. That's even 25% less than the Adventure Rains! I just bought two helmets and they were about 1/3 cheaper than if I had bought domestically. People seem to have good luck with FC-Moto and Bikerland.de. Although I think FC Moto's customer service isn't top notch (they are slow to respond), I would certainly order from them again.

    I second (third?) the recommendation of Atomic Moto. Brian's gear recommendations to me have always been spot on and he spends the time talking with you over the phone to make sure you get the right gear. Thanks to him, I have no money.

    Revzilla has always been solid and quick to ship.
