I’ve had an interest in motocross gear for some time now. My first purchase was a pair of Alpinestars Tech 6 boots a couple years ago. They were my first pair of real motorcycle boots. I found out fast how stiff and heavy they were. Motocross boots are a lot more difficult to walk in than racing boots. The stiffness acts almost like a cast for the leg, a sort of bondage. It must be what attracts me to them so much. It’s either that or all the buckles and straps. Motocross pants have a different look and feel to them. They are mostly a nylon fabric with plastic/rubber moldings on them. I like how the pants feel and look. I went with a blue/white color scheme with my gear. I also want to get some red/black gear for some variety.
More recently, I have acquired pants and a jersey to round out my collection. I’m still missing pads, gloves, and a helmet. In time, I’ll have a complete outfit. Gear collections take time and mine grows slowly but steadily. With all the thrift stores around, you would be amazed at what fun and kinky gear you can find at times. Craigslist is also a good source. I found my boots on there.
