    awesome,, I took my first ride with my new gear last night. Oh man I felt like I was learning how to ride. I couldn't move for shit, first the boots were so hard I couldn't find the pegs, then I couldn't shift gears within 10 min. I was fine I got used to it quick.

    then the gloves, Oh man they are soooooo stiff. I couldn't break or squeeze the handle bars fully. the first time I hit the front brakes, I couldn't squeeze hard enough and that shit scared me. I rode for 30 min. I'm gonna break it in before I even get on the bike again... I'm wearing the mother f'er on my sleep.

    but thanks bro. I'm happy. and I look sexy too. :naughty:

    but I'll keep you updated promise... I got them for $200 BTW.

    i have the SMX boots and have crashed tested them .. they still look new too! They saved my ankle from being crushed, i walked away from the wreck thinks to those boots

    They are a great boot and once you get used to them they become part of you for riding!

    worth the $$

    I got the 2005 I guess they are suppost to be a little different from last years, the 2005 are vented with a bunch of holes on the top just like my suit.. it's funny because as I hit 30 mph I felt the wind going through

    my main concern is breaking in the gloves, I won't ride with them until they are nice and soft. :hs:

    Hey guys when you ride on the street in the race boots, do you have any traction issues with the boots?

    I've got everything aside from street gear minus the boots. I'm debating on getting the A* SMX-3 or the ICON street boots.

    I've crashed on my A* Tech 6s on the dirt track a couple of times and I'm not willing to take chances on the street.

    Thanks again! :)

    traction issues with the boots?? what to you mean?

    one the pegs?? no .. no issue

    I was just a little worried about having traction issues when you come up to a stop and put your feet down...

    The best thing about riding in the dirt is that no street boots are ever going to be AS stiff as my dirt boots.

    Thanks again.

    I had no issues with the boots, the only problem I had was that I couldn't kick my gears up... I couldn't even get my foot under the shift.. but after 10 min. of riding I got used to it.

    I'm riding with my boots and gloves 100% of the time from now on... I bought them to protect me and I'm gonna use them, I don't give a fuck if anyone says anything about being over dress.

    fucking squids like to critize too much around boston....

    Thanks dudes!

    I think I'm leaning towards the A* boots :)
    And I don't have to worry about moving my boots to shift - I reversed the lever to get GP shifting :rofl:

    Hopefully this street bike thing will go smoother than the dirt - so far I'm good all the way around on my YZ but I'm too chicken shit to start jumping :rofl:

    I've been thinking about getting a GP shifting kit... just like the pros. the kit only cost $30 and it's hella easy to install. you shift 1 up and five down instead of the one down and 5 up....

    GP shifting is a lot easier - at least to me it is :)

    I don't know how it is on Yamis but on my gsxr I didn't need any extra parts - just flipped the rod over.
