He just needs another boot to match the right one, lots of protection. Not so much for the toes though.

Thanks for the offer but the Gaerne's won't cut it. Not nearly wide enough.

I don't think the road boots(any road boots I've seen) offer much impact/crush protection either. From what I've seen, the easier the boot is to walk in, the less protective it is.

I think the doc smacked my feet instead of my as when I popped out and he hit a little too hard.

Duh! I wasn't offering them to you.

Nick was the one looking for boots.

Late to the party, but I love my Joe Rocket boots. Same thing jonathan bought used. I got mine from the local honda shop just before we went to ride the dragon. Reportedly waterproof, but haven't tested then. Easily slip under my jeans and comfortable all day long.

Joe rocket discontinued my model, but they have a new replacement. Honda had one set of the old left, but they were size 12. Jonathan was talking about buying them and setting them back until his current set wear out.

If blooch gets an order for sidi boots, my buddy might be interested. Nick got him spooked.

2013 Honda CRF450 Rally



Quote:
And while the racer looks like a solid rig, the greatest thing about the factory motorcycle is that its rally parts will be commercially available in kit form, much in the same way Honda has sold go fast bits through their race division, HRC.
"The pricing and distribution of the rally kit are still in the planning stages," American Honda rep Kevin Aschenbach told me over email. But whatever the cost (and the assumed non-legality of road use), how cool would it be to own a clone of a factory Dakar Rally race bike?!

I wonder if you could slap a dual sport kit on that puppy from the dealer and ? One of those and a Giant loop bag and you'd be good to go...anywhere!

Thanks for all the input I'm checking everything out so far I'm leaning towards the aerostitch combat touring for dual purpose and street use. I wear a 8-8.5 ee to eeee depending on the boot.

Great choice !! Look at the tall ones and not the lites..
They are shorter..
I have a few good buddies that have them for years and the friggin things still look NEW.. And they wear em ALL the time..
I have heard that there is a little break in period..

Yeah, they're real leather, and pretty thick. They will take a bit of breaking in . . . .

My Lite's sure did . . . .

They're not actually lighter, just shorter. For max protection, the regular Combat Touring would be better.

Been drooling over this bike for a bit now.......
The biggest problem I can see with it, same with the KXF and YZF, WR(not as bad), and the small KTMs for that matter, is the oil change interval. None of these bikes have more than a thimble of oil. Now maybe with an oil reservoir/cooler that holds a qt or two..... hmmmmm
Titling would also be a bitch in several states.... MD included....damhik.

I'm really interested in these rally bikes though... Especially since HRC is offering a kit!!!!

I hear ya on the oil change intervals. Some of them are ridiculous! I guess if your being sponsored it doesn't matter...

Don't get too excited. Another inmate on the XRL thread who is in Peru right now was talking with the Manger of the Lima Honda shop the other day. The Manager had seen and ridden one. He was told the kits will be in the $10,000 range.
I guess it's still cheaper then the KTM rally bike (below) which is around $30,000!!!


That's inmate Pyndon who is competing in the Dakar. I haven't been following but he came in 9th in one of the stages recently!
