Yeah...Instead isn't necessarily the best choice...plus theirs aren't supposed to be re-usable. I did anyway al least a couple times and they were fine.

Hopefully they don't restock if you send it back.

They have discontinued the guarantee. Sad

They also suggest buying a new one every year which is a bunch of crap.  You can boil them and they used to suggest replacing every 5 years.  I've talked with women that have used them that long and I have no idea why anyone would buy a new one every year.  Just sanitize it regularly (boiling water in an old glass jar is one of the suggestions I have seen).

Reducing their eco footprint my ass, they want to increase their profits.  Rolleyes

Anybody have any good tricks for getting rid of the lovely imprint a helmet liner such as a balaclava or Buff tends to leave on your face?

I'm sick of getting to work and dealing with the lovely imprint the Buff leaves on my forehead.  Crazy

I do a weird little routine when putting my helmet on over the buff - basically, I pull the buff out to its full length, whip it across my hand (rawr  Lol) so that the ends unroll and are nice and flat, then I do the whole turn my head upside down and pull the buff on. I make sure that the buff is not on my face, just barely covering my hair, then I tilt my head back and shove on the helmet. It works, but I have no bangs, so if the buff goes back on my head a little, it's no big deal and I don't have any fly-aways.

If the buff is on my forehead, I'm in for a lot of pain. I need a new helmet.  Sad

The KBC TK8 fits really well. I might try it, but I'll miss my Suomy anti-fog. I've never seen another brand that works as well.

Quick question for you all.  Currently I have a pair of Oxtar Sunray boots in a 37, I've been pretty happy w/them, but started getting pretty nasty pain midfoot from them being too narrow.  Since I've stopped wearing them, the pain is gone.  Now I'm on a quest for a decent weatherproof boot similar to this.  Primarily I will be using them for commuting - so walking is a couple blocks in from the parking lot, but also I plan on doing a moto-camping trip in a few weeks.  Do any of you have a suggestions for this type of boot for a wider foot in women's sizing?  Do any of you just use the men's sizing (in a boot like the A* Web Gortex or something similar)?

I wear men's boots for the extra width.

Another option is to get the women's boots a half size too big and add some nice insoles.  I do this with all my commuting/touring boots.  I'd need a 39 for track boots, but I buy 40s and put in the insoles.  They add so much to the all day comfort because most motorcycle boots aren't padded.  As a bonus you can buy a $5 or $10 pair of insoles when the old ones wear out and the boots are as comfortable as the day you got them.  Bigok  since I don't own a car making my boots as comfortable as possible for as long as possible is a major concern.  I found a bunch of insoles (despite being men's boots I buy women's insoles since they fit my feet better) at big lots for $2 a pair and now I won't have to buy them for another year or two.

I recently started wearing the TCX/Oxtar Men's Infinity boot. In a 40 it is a little roomier than the Sunray of the same size. They are ok for walking for a few blocks, though I wouldn't go on a hike or anything.

To go back to an old topic... I bought a Diva cup a few months ago. I'm not exaggerating when I say that it has changed my life. Well, for a few days a month, that is.  Lol  It's already paid for itself. If anyone has any other questions, shoot me a pm.

Okay Ladies... I have a question for you.  Do you find that you ride worse on the day or so before your period, and on the first day or two of your period?  I didn't make the connection at first... just thought I was having a really bad day, but then it happened a couple more times, and each time it was on those days for me.  Anyone else have the same experience?  


Riding is the BEST thing for my cramps.

I will say again that I love my Keeper.  For the first time I was actually smart enough to put it in before I started on the day I was expecting it.  It was wonderful because I was out for the whole day and I didn't have to think about it.  

Has anyone noticed their period is longer with the Keeper/Diva Cup/other equivalent?  I am usually about 4 days on tampons and more like 5 with the Keeper.  I forget it more easily, so I guess that kind of balances it out, though.

Maybe the first day is a little heavier?  They aren't as irregular now that I'm on armour thyroid, but still not anything close to regular so it's hard to say.  Putting it in when you are expecting your period is one of the best parts.  Can't do that with tampons, and who wants to use a pad a minute more than they have to?  Crazy

Mrs. BMW-K, I am too lazy to multi-quote so I'll just say I am more tired for several days before and my riding suffers a little because of that.  Then the first day is usually percocet time so no riding then.

FOUR days?? FIVE days? *sob* I go a full seven days no matter what. If I had the time to recuperate this winter, I'd have the plumbing yanked out entirely.
