MX boots "can" be a pain to break in. Back in the day I'd soak mine in the bathtub overnight then ride with them still damp the next day, worked pretty well. These days I just go straight to Alpine Stars and put them on and ride, they work and feel great.

Never had or looked at any....

Which manufacture makes them wideest and which style has the stiffest instep for kick starting safety? Any opinions or experience or preferences? They seem to have a great selection....

( comment away please.... )

Most all MX boots are really stiff, you end up walking like frankenstien for a an hour or so to break them in some.
I only have experience with ARC Coronas and the ONeal Elements, they got was plenty wide. I wear a size 10 1/2 and I ordered 11 if I remember right.

One thing that did happen to ONeals too, I slipped off the kickstarter on the ATK (note its a short kicker) and tore a hole in the side of the oneals that I had sewed back up.

Your welcome to try them on and even keep them if you want gus, I'll have to find them when I get back but I can't say anything good about them for the most part.

Like you I have a wide foot and I can't wear typical Cowboy boots etc because of it.

I got some earl at da store and found an old sock for a filter, the guys at the yamahammer store lost interest when I sed '1977' & now I cans be sure what slick'em is in that infernal machine.

Judging by what I saw along side the road, I also looked at wadding boots... Maybe hip waders should be the gear of the weak... Ya think?

Saw a high school stadium cushion that had some pockets that hang off the front & I thunked that it might make my butt feel better, if not look better, and I would have some storage on one side at least and I could sit adly-gonk-lin so the bike would be balanced nice & be good to me about my choice of farkle....

What you'all thunk about that idear?

Edit to add:
I saw a bazillion cars & trucks parked all over the sides of the roads..... What's up wit dat. Also, I found several small holes in the sides of my Blazer... WTF? Any ideas?

I still have a sheepskin pad somewhere, an atv pad, got one of those fancy gel pads too. It's kinda squirmy and makes it hard for me to feel what the bike's doing. The $20 walmart pad works better than any of em.

I put some battery acid....

... in the old 6 volt battery off the RednBlack and have a charger zapping it. Will see if the sulphated cells will come back at all. I blasted it with 18volts for a while to knock some of the powder off and now it is at 8 volts for the night, Running about 150 Milli-amps through it.
