I can agree that I had the same experience, I thought the 750 would be a bigger version of my old 650, boy was I wrong. The ol 650 was better in every single way.

Heck they dont have to be low, but I don't really need a full out MX boot, just something with a substantially reinforced shifter area, that won't have a dent in it in a few months.
