Good MotoX gear source?

I'm looking for a good online source of MotoX gear. Decent prices, good selection. Other than Dennis Kirk...not that I don't like them, just looking for other options.
I need one of those armored mesh jerseys and various other gear.
Thanks,
JohnnyB

Search for closeouts. MX gear prices drop drastically at the new model year conversion. Dennis Kirk does offer great prices if you are will to buy last seasons gear.

Motocross Gear!

What size do you wear? I have some gear that I had just bought, then sold my Bike. I have 2 pants (one new the other in good condition), One shirt (good condition), MX Boots (good condition), just let me know what you want I probably have it!

New (only used one short ride)


Used But still in great condition


Finish is pretty bad but good interior (quality lid)


Best MX boot I've tried (For the Money) Great shape and NO STINK!

Hey Ripper, what size are those boots?

I've got a pair of Alpinestar Tech5s that fit well, but pinch like crazy when I'm on my feet. I might be interested if the size & price is right.

Size 11, I know what you mean about the Tech series boots pinching. I tried several pair before I settled on these. They are just broke in so the worst part of MX boots is over. I'd take 80 shipped.

Thanks for the suggestions folks. Gear is for my wife, who has a birthday coming up. Needed some places to take her on an internet shoping spree.

My favorite place is www.moto-man.com

They are a small family business and their prices are very good.

sorry Ripper, you're price is right, but the size doesn't seem to be.
I'll see if I can find some locally to try on, if they do fit I'll PM you.

I've been wearing the Thor Impact Rig for the last year or so and I'd probably give it 3.5 out of five stars. It has saved my back from serious injury after landing on a couple of boulders, but the mesh between the armor is very prone to tears and grabbing other stuff. The buckle at the top left that goes across the zipper fell off a couple of weeks ago. If I had to buy another one, it would most likely be the Alpinestars vest/pressure suit. I tried one on at the dealer and it was much better quality than the Thor suit. About the same price IIRC.

JB, go to www.cyclegear.com There are the largest chain outfit in the nation. Great prices. I have done some CCTV work for some of their stores. They might even have the pink handlebar tassles that you are looking for you race bike. I got my squeekie handlebar horn from them.

Thanks again everyone for the tips....Ridge...great to know about the Thor...I was looking at that, typically all my gear beside leathers and helmet are AlpinStar so I'd be glad check out one of their pressure suits.

Ripper, thanks for the code bro!

Moto- Do they have the gear we used when we did our "Extreme Training" video?

For some reason they discontinued the line right after out video came out. I thought we looked hot. I'll have to dig up the video.
