Kevin Hagerty is no stranger to adventure. As one of the founders of the motorcycle tours and rentals company MotoQuest, Hagerty has led numerous two-wheeled excursions around the world. When he isn’t leading a group through the Alaskan wilderness, he’s riding around Southern California on his BMW R 1200 GS. Kevin gave us his thoughts on the Adrenaline and what he would like to see next from Bates.


“At first, I was skeptical regarding the worthiness of the Bates Boots in a motorcycle riding environment. As far as the Adrenaline Boots were concerned, I had applied one of the worst principals, and that was contempt prior to investigation.”


“After wearing the Bates Boots on a number of occasions, I find them extremely lightweight and abnormally comfortable. I also liked that they’re waterproof, in case I encounter the occasional rain on my rides.”


While I find them comfortable, attractive and appropriate for street riding on my dual purpose BMW GS, they should not be used for a serious off road excursion, trust me. I would know..”


“That being said, since my experience with the Adrenaline Boot was so positive, I would enjoy seeing a serious off-road offering from Bates- given the workmanship, quality, comfort, and design of these boots. Then I can really put those boots to the MotoQuest test!”
