    Hey Joe,

    this is one of my customers and has a good deal going on the left over stuff. MX boots can be a little large being that you will wear thick socks.

    what is your size? i have 5 sets of mx gear...i could part ways with 1 set to help a brother out. get on ebay, that is where i buy my boots. i always buy a clean set on there, that way, when you get them, they are already broke in. i have a set of tech 6's that i got off there that looked brand new after cleaning them with some soft scrub and SOS pads (they are white) and they were already broken in. check out www.rockymountainatvmc.com they are having closeouts on a BUNCH of stuff. i got a set of gear 2 weeks ago dirt cheap. but let me know if you need anything, i have lots of stuff laying around

    Get gloves, gloves help alot, you can buy cheap boots that will be plenty good. Get a nice chest protector with back protection, kidney protection. Mine has come in hand in a bunch of "bad" crashes where I came out fine, hell I had one guy ride right over me with his bike, I got up and was fine

    I've gotten stuff from www.motosport.com in the past. Looking through their catalog I'd bet A* Tech 3s, Gaerne Cyphers, or Thor Quadrants would all be decent boots in your price range. I had some cheap Thors maybe five years ago. They were good for the price. I'd stick with a cheap model in a good brand. I've seen some offbrand boots that were total junk.

    I wear Oakley O-frame goggles. They're cheap, hold up well.

    I've worn several brands of gloves. The only ones I really disliked were Moose Sahara hot weather gloves. Which was strange because I would overall highly recomend Moose as a brand. If you're gonna play in the mud get a pair of MSR Mud Pros.

    Same here! I just got the Moose Sahara pants, jersey and gloves. Love the pants and jersey. I also bought the Moose Roost/Chest protector 'cause it has the strap-adjustable shoulder pads as well as upper arm guards, and I've put it to the test a few times with no problems. Wore the gloves once, got blisters on my thumbs. I'll keep 'em for light work gloves but they don't cut it for woods/moto riding.

    Joe, as we've discussed, you can get hurt just as bad on the XR100 as the big bikes. I think the Moose gear is worth the money if you're going to use it often enough. If I'm going out in the woods, or on a moto track I wear at least; Moto boots, knee/shin guards (Fox, $20), pants and jersey, kidney belt (once again, Fox, $20), chest protector.
    I plan on getting elbow guards and a collar real soon too. I also finally bought a Moto helmet and goggles this year, makes a huge difference. Most of that gear will last a good long time and you can wear it for the indoor stuff too, so it's money well spent.
    Speaking of which, you racin' shorttrack???
