SIDI street burners or....

trying to decide if I want to spend the $250 on street burners or spend just the extra 20-30 dollars for a full boot from alpinestars...
any imput?????
I know the street burners are supposed to be awesome and work well with different types of pants cause they are low on the leg but I don't know if it is worth it if I can get a full boot for only that much more!!

Spend the extra $20 and get the full boot. The safety of the full boot far outweighs the risk of injury.

Dress for the crash, not the ride!

You may also find that Sidi's go under the pants a lot easier than the a*'s do

Shorty boots are better than nothing, but they do not come close to the protection a full boot offers.

We keep Sidi in stock and can get pretty much any other brand you may want, with an MH discount AND we guarantee fit.

Come see us if you get a chance.
