160,000 miles on his Bohn Adventure Pants and Still Going Strong.

We get feedback and reports from our customers every week,
- it's great for people to read real-life customer reports.

But sometimes we get such great reports and feedback that it's a travesty to show just a summary!
 This report shows just why motorcycling is such a warm and friendly passion for millions of us.
 We didn't ask Lou for this - he just wanted to share his experience of how one of our
 products has dramatically enhanced his riding life.

He's used and abused his Bohn Adventure Pants over years and 160,000 miles
and points out uses and important features we'd never thought to mention!

Good Enough for Lou - They're Good Enough For You!

Subject: Years: Six. Miles: 160K.

The subject line is my testimonial.

I bought the Bohn Armor Pants at the BMW shop in Los Angeles while I was working a project near there in 2001. They saw their first use in local tours along the Angeles Crest and the wonderfully twisted highways over the California coastal ranges. But it was after the project was completed and I was on my way home that I wore them through Death Valley at 115 degrees (F) one afternoon, then up over the pass to Yosemite in the icy early morning of the following day. That's when Bohn "Under" Armor pants were permanently integrated into my touring outfit. They just plain worked.

With Bohn as the base layer, faded blue jeans or light gray hiking pants as the sun-reflective norm, and chaps or riding pants as the wet or chilly day outer layer when needed, there is not a single place I couldn't go with confidence. And looking more like normal than like a space walk refugee at truck stops along the way was a bonus. That worked too for a low profile guy like me.

Since then I've worn that single pair of Bohn pants as "underarmor" for six years and 160K miles including Alaska (twice), across to the east coast (thrice), zigging the zags of Deal's gap (thrice as well), down to Key West one time, and through the canyons and deserts of the west and the Rockies numerous times. After pulling the armor pads, the pants have seen washings in motel sinks and ice-melt rivers and were (usually) completely dry by morning. Those pants looked on laundromats like a luxury.

Fortunately, the only "crash" testimony I can offer was on a primitive road deep in the Cascade range by Mt. Adams. That crash while wearing my fishing/camping boots instead of my higher motorcycle touring boots left me with new dents and cuts on my shins, but my knees, hips and thighs were protected from the roots and rocks by the Bohn system. No problem. The armor did it's job.

But the bonus you don't advertise is that my boney knees don't take nearly the beating they once did when I stop to
perform routine maintenance tasks like chain tightening and lubrication while kneeling on the unforgiving concrete of motel or Wal-Mart parking lots. Oh, yeah. That benefit alone is worth the price of admission boys and girls.

That's functionality I've come to expect from my touring gear. Bohn has met, no, exceeded, those expectations.

I'm ordering another pair because after years and kilomiles of use and abuse, one of the pad pockets (hmmm, left side, hip, exactly where I fell last summer...) has begun to come apart at the seam. It still works. The pad still stays in place. But the seam is getting shorter and the open space larger with each wearing. It's time.

Good work, guys and gals of Bohn.
