I wear Alpinestars when I'm just riding and not walking. But most of the time I wear a pair of combat boots with steel toes. Provide plenty of protection and blend in anywhere. Can be much cheaper than motorcycle boots too.
There are a huge range of shorter boots, that look good, but do they protect your ankle enough?
Broms was only telling me today, the amount of bike injuries involving ankles, it didn't sound pretty so the boots stay on Dova.
On a side note, can anyone recommend a boot that has a thinker sole (i need the height) but also is narrow enough to fit the MV's shifter? That's my problem. So far, only the Sidi Canyon fits the bill.
These are most of my non-touring/non-race-ish boots.
I wear the two on the left the most.
Left most is Gaerne. I really like it. Easy to put on, etc. Good protection. hot though. Also a bit tough with the shifter on the MVs. Manageable, but not as much feel. Mostly use it on the Husky which I putt around more frequently for urban use.
The Elf one I've only seen in Japan. Must be some branding thing. Anyway, it's got all sorts of vents, etc. I use this the most out of all these. Quick velcro action and you are away. Probably the most minimal of protection, covers the ankle a bit with some padding/plasticy stuff. Only use for tooling around town.
3rd from the left I've only worn once, getting back from the shop cuz it didn't fit in my backpack. I've only just found them again hiding in some box. Quite clunky. Probably would be tough on the MV, but I'll have to check. Velcro holds down the laces. A* Black Label Street Gear. Toe is really hard, not sure if it is steel or anything, but I can't push down on it. Waterproof, or so it claims.
right most is Forma. Dunno what that brand is. Waterproof. Got it for work, so it looks 'reasonable' under trousers for my trek through the building to my desk to change shoes. Only complaint is on the velcro which grabs at trousers a bit. Next one will be zipper-only.
Anyway, that's whats in the closet. Or rather what sits in the entranceway, most are too big for the shoe closet....
For those that are interested...
The Givi Ring BF-02 fits perfectly on the 2019 Dragster RR.
I fitted it with the Givi ST605 Sport-T TanklockED Tank Bag which locks to your bike so nobody grabs it. I will be adding a small travel lock to the zipper like this I don't have to worry if I leave it...
Looking to get myself something for the holidays. Want a hoodie or jacket. Where is the best place to get a MV brand one? Probably need an xxl size. I'm a XL hoodie so with European size looking at a xxl.

Hi everyone, I am selecting a new helmet, as I believe that purchase of a new bike is a good reason to buy a new helmet.
I am thinking of a full-face helmet, and my budget is roughly $450. The helmet that I have got now was $99, and it was some sort of promotion in my local store.
Hey, I am looking for GPR exhaust to my Brutale 989R. I think it is the same model of the exhaust system like for example in 910. Should be fit? What do you think? I think about GPR Furore balck carbon for Brutale 910. At the moment I have already decat Termignoni.
