I just thought Id share my positive experience with RST customer service.

I bought a pair of RST boots about 18 months ago and recently found a couple of issues with them. I sent RST an email with photos of the problem points - some stitching starting to come away and a split PU ankle protector. But overall, Ive been really pleased with them.

From the start RST were interested in getting my feedback, ending up with me returning the boots to RST for a first-hand inspection of the problems. The long and the short of it is that RST have sent me a new, replacement pair of boots even though the old ones were well out of the warranty period and, practically speaking, had many thousands of miles left in them.

Customer service above and beyond normal expectations.

The current ones: 04 TDM900, 84 Honda XL600R, 08 Ulysses XB12XT

The past 37 years worth (at least the ones I can remember)...
Voshkod 175, Fantic GT, Honda CD175, Matchless G2, Honda SL125, Honda CJ250, Ural 650, Pre-unit Triumph Thunderbird 650, Suzuki GS550, Honda CB400/4, Kawasaki Z1100Ltd, Kawasaki GPz1100, Kawasaki z650, Suzuki GS750, Honda CB400/4, Suzuki GS850, Yamaha TDM850 Mk1, Honda XRV750 Africa Twin, Yamaha XT250, Yamaha FJ1200, BMW R1100GS, Yamaha TDM850 Mk1...

I'm trying to be the person my dog already thinks I am.

Nice to hear about good customer service for a change - it would swing me to buying RST products again in the future.

I've had RST kit since getting into biking back in 2005.

My last leather/textile jacket from RST had to be at least 8 years old. Apart from a bit of wear and tear, and the white leather inserts being a bit grubby, it's still in great nick!
