…………For me. I guess that is hugely better than crumbling inside the package! So curious what have you guys been seeing as the life expectancy for the boots sold as “better”? ( I am not sure if any warranty statement is included in a sale ) I had bought 2 pairs in 2016, 1 set on the bike, the other set stored in a box. Interesting that the installed set did fail, and that is on a bike that is rarely outside the shop for more than 10 days a year! So simply the O2 exposure must be the issue, not the UV as I’d thought previously. I actually have a photo showing the 2 sets, but can’t eliminate the receipt I had in the shot. It sure is a PITA to replace them………. BooHoo….. cry

I got my last ones from CBS for the TR6SR and several years later they still are fine. I haven't done anything to them other wipe the dust off.
