We hope KLIM gets their act together and come out with a DUAL SPORT suit in female sizing that is the same quality as the guys in the very near future.  We LOVE KLIM but it seems other companies such as BMW are a head of the game treating grrls as equals when it comes to the ADV suits.

KLIM LATITUDE – Second Opinion (w/Modified Collar)


A couple of months ago we sent our jackets back to KLIM USA to have the collars shortened on our Latitude jackets.  This is a mod that anyone can get presently as there have been quite a few complaints about the stiffness and height.  After this trip Cheryl has decided to return to her Traverse suit and has asked me to put her suit up for sale.  I am still up in the air about it. 

We have worn this suit for over 6500 KM now.

  • Nov 2012 UPDATE:  We both SOLD our Latitudes.  In the end, nice looking suit but the stiffness of the Cordura was over kill for us.  We are both back to wearing our Traverse and I have to admit the fit of the Traverse pants especially WINS!

Givi TW01 Duffel Bag


Cheryl & I Love dry bags and we use Wolfman luggage right now. 

It’s nice to see other companies getting into the market to show off their gear.  Our Dry bags are essential for touring and we would never go away without at least one large one.  We stow our clothes in there, things that we try not to get dirty while traveling. Here GIVI gives it a try as well.  Anyone have one of these?
