  • Dirt boots on a road?

    Hey folks,

    just wondering if anyone has had any experience using MotoX boots on a road bike. Are they compatible? comfortable? thoughts appreciated

        If it's a proper motocross style boot they are way to chunky.

        You will have a HUGE struggle trying to change gears.

            MotorX boots are too big to get feet under pegs comfortably and not enough movement around the heel and toe area. Sports bike seating position has legs at a much more angled position compared to dirt bikes which have feet/legs more upright.

              if your worried about one set of boots for both bikes you can get cross over boots that do the same thing averagely on both bikes

                  ahh thats great, because i have seen the cost of some boots and i was worried i would go over my budget, but this takes it back down to under 1000 dollars, which is where i would like it to be

                        I'm guessing he is trying to get all his gear for under $1000?

                          1000 for ALL my gear (helmet, jacket, pants, gloves)

                          1000 for just boots is way too extreme for me!
