Sidi B-2 for me. Love the boot, very comfy. Not waterproof though.

'02 Honda 919 - She's the only one for me!

Daytona boots are the best in the world. I cannot afford them.

I have a pair of the Aplinestar Supertechs - And I love them ! Best fitting boot Ive even had on my foot ! Ive personally crash tested them , the bike fell on my lt. leg mid apex and I walked away without any injuries. The new generation are alot less racerboy looking, so, Id think they would make a great everyday boot -
I also have a pair of the Aplinestar SMX - The supertechs feel better, but, these are better for colder months.

I have far too many boots, but I wear only two at present.

Thor 50/50 boots for everyday, and Alpinestars Tech2 for extended trips.

I used to swear by the Alpinestars Ridge (No pun intended) boots. They were Gore-Tex lined, taller than most and looked like a plain black boot. I was turned off when the sole wore a couple holes in it after about a year of nearly daily use and I can't replace 'em. I also did not like that Astars neglected to put a shift patch on the left boot. That really makes a difference in the wear and tear.

Whatever you choose, change out the insoles for the Superfeet Green and your feet will thank you every time you slip your boots on.

You ain't kidding. Looks like their cheapest boot is $250.

I have the Gaerne Panorama's & like them a lot ( http://www.kneedraggers.com/details/...s--620680.html ) but they're friggin hot in the Summer. I'm shopping for a lower more practical boot. Might try the Sidi Scorpion or Doha.

I love my Alpinestar Tech 7's but they would probably look goofy if I wore the to ride the 919.

Thor 50/50 for everday use.

Alpinestar Ridge for the winter (two long weeks here in SoCal ); they're waterproof.

Alpinestar Tech 8 for the dirt.

Alpinestar Supertech R for the track. Safest boots around.
