Anyone want to ride? Open to ideas and places to go. My only working bike is the 450.

Alpine star boots.

I am looking at some new Alpinestar boots. Does anyone have any suggestions? I like the Tech 10 and Tech 7's but thay are $350 plus. I found a pair of Tech 3's but they don't have a steel toe clip. Neither do the Tech 10's which are their most fancy and expensive models. Any ideas?

I wore my Tech 8's for three years and I never had a complaint. Real quality beefy boots. I would still be wearing them if I didn't just buy a pair of Sidi Crossfires. The Sidis are lighter and have the hinged ankle that I've found I prefer. Riding boots are awfully expensive though. I bought both the Sidis and the Alpinestars used.

Had I read this before I left I would've called you up. Went for a 70 mile wander from Livonia out north and west a bit. No real goal, just an easy ride wherever looked like a proper path. Nothing over 50.

I like the Tech 8's myself. I use them for offroad. I have some Astar Vectors which they no longer make. I use those for ADV /Touring type riding.

I usually buy mine on closeout deals. I did recently buy a very nice pair of used Tech 8's on here though.

Sounds fun. I ended up aimlessly riding around in the thumb for 220 miles mostly dirt roads by myself. Not the most fun but at least I was on two wheels.

My old Alpinestars are Tech 8's. They must have quit making them. I decided to go with the Tech 3's. They were $229 compared to $539 for the Tech 10's. If I was going to pay that kind of money I would probably get the Sidi's which are waterproof. None of the Alpinestars are.


It's break in time! Hope they soften up quickly. Nobody likes sore feet.
