I was surfing around the net today looking for some casual riding boots for those times when I'm not in full leathers. Anyway, I found some interesting options from both Alpinestars, Sidi and Thor. I really like both the Sidi and the Thor boots for the simple fact that they look well constructed and not cheap. The Thor 50/50's are pretty nice and even though they're marketed as off road boots they look comfortable enough for on road use. They're about the same price as the Sidi's and the Alpinestars. Anyone have any experiences with the Alpinestars Recon boots or the Sidi Doha boots? I won't be getting either until I go back through Japan and check out Ricoland again to see what they have. I saw some XPD's there (Spidi) that looked pretty cool.
On a related note, while doing this searching around, I found Dennis Kirk is having a sale on Alpinestars SMX Race boots. All colors on sale for $169. If you're in the market for a new pair or just want a pair for back up, here's a good chance to get them fairly cheap. For the record, I don't have any affiliation with Dennis Kirk or any other internet dealer. I post a good deal for others information and possible use when I see one.......sean
