RIDEING WITH BOOTS

OK got the new alpines and well i have never had boots befor, any way i need to adjust my pegs, when i go to hit the brake it is fast and sharp like i am standing on it , i even got the back slideing around a bit today! kind a strange exp!

and the shifter well its ok but it doesnt always come down far enought for the gear to reset so when i go to shift again i just get a springing action! any way they are diff and i am sure i will get use to them!

any brakein methods for boots?

I wear new gear around the house to help break it in.

If you need a hand adjusting the pedals, come by and we'll take care if you, no charge.

Simple.......... stop using the rear brake


You will get use to them and will feel strange riding without them. The problem I have is walking in them for any long distances ……….that takes lot’s of break in time.
