This article was very helpful. I have problems with fit and was glad to read comments on whether the sizing runs large or small. Also appreciated the comments on weight and how comfortable they are off the bike.

I don't know if the Gaerne Aquatech is available in the USA (I live in NZ). It is the men's equivalent of the Black Rose (looks like it might be Gaerne men's G. King boot).

I also despair at the few women's motorcycle boots that are available in larger women's sizes. (dont get me started about being larger than a size 16 and getting gear!). I am on the narrow side of average, size 10 1/2 women's shoe. Gaerne is an Italian boot maker company and and the men's size 9 1/2 (EU 44) is the slimmest fit men's boot I have found.

It is light and really comfortable (while "doing the business" of keeping my feet and ankles protected. It is not a "fashion boot" but it doesn't look (or feel like) like a boxy ski boot either when I am walking. The flexible ankle allows an accurate angle to sit on my bike and still not be stiff when walking. My purchase is still too new to have checked the waterproofness.

Looks like a great product. Finally, a comfortable, waterproof boot designed for women. However, I'm on the short side (5 feet 4 inches) and need a 2 1/2 to 3-inch heel in order to flat foot at stops when riding my Road King. The option of a boot with more of a heel would be terrific for those of us who need the extra height.

Gypsy,
You might want to consider adding Harley's Reach Seat to your bike, too, if you haven't already. It's a relatively new accessory - about two years old and brings you closer to the bars and lower to the ground. I have one on my Street Glide.

Love the articles on clothing but where are they in local stores. Have tried the Internet thing and they just don't fit so have to send everything back. When are the local stores going to have a good selection of shoes and clothing for women to choose from, and when are the manufacturers going to make comfortable, good looking gear for us, preferably with protection.
