Moto boots and shifting

Post  Beasley999 on Wed May 06, 2015 9:42 am

Anyone else have a problem shifting while wearing motocross style boots? It's tuff to get toe under shifter.

Try raising the shift lever up a spline or two, that should fix your issue. listen up

regardless of what boots you wear the best position is always gonna be a compromise if you ride offroad (or ride long distances on road with the stock seat.... painful ) and stand up a lot

try a few different positions and find the sweet spot that works for you.

Ya de ya de yaa Sean, Oz rulz hmm? Bump

I was actually quite apprehensive when I bought something the first time via the net ie unseen.
I'm not much of a gambler in that respect but thought "oh well, let's see..."
I'll tell you what: every single piece of Oz-made stuff I've bought has impressed me no end, the quality is absolute sterling!
So ya, I agree there..... just a pity your rugby sucks BRP smile
