Fresh out of the package. Been stored in the dark for a long time. Some things are not like they used to be.

Hey KC, love to see the details for the Rancho gaitors. Be good for my everyday rider. I'm with Gary, sick of pulling everything off the forks at least once a year.

Agree with Irish that maybe one source sold by suppliers.

I managed to find some NVT bagged ones in what I suspect is original NVT stock. They are still good, so must be 30+ yreas old? Also have some Triumph ones in a box that I bought in the late 90's that look like old stock. They are still good.

It can be done, just manufacturers choose to or are forced to use crap materials currently.

I'd use 'em !
Yep, like I said, they do stretch a lot to fit, but that BMW slider is very large so had to slit the back and clamp/zip-tie.
The off road folks love bizarre colors, but explore the site to see more.

The link above is what I used on that photo: “rancho makes boots,…the small end is 1-1/4", large end 2", 9-1/2" long”
