Coconut Socks

I'm always looking for ways to pack a little lighter when out travelling. I'm also on the lookout for new and innovative products that are better than anything else I've previously used.
Are you looking for the perfect gift for the motorcycle rider that has everything?
This is what you need, socks made from coconut!
I've now been using the socks for 6 months now. I was a skeptic when I first heard of them, but am a believer in them now. The coconut makes it so the socks have properties that keep odor to a minimum. You really can wear these things for 5 days without being offensive (maybe longer, but I haven't tried yet). Just by setting them in the hot sun will "freshen" them up. If you wash them in a sink, they will dry quickly. The wicking properties are excellent.
As for packing lighter, I now just ride with the one pair of coconut socks that I'm wearing.
And yes, coconut socks are very comfortable. Buy them, try them, and if you are not sold on them, send them back for a refund!

Greater Utah Touring Society

The first meeting of the Greater Utah Touring Society didn't turn out quite as planned. Read about the adventure here.
In short, even thought the day was warm and dry, winter had arrived in the high country a few weeks previous.
