Re: Alpinestars SMX 5 Boots
Spose I'm just posting up what has already been said, but hey ho.
I went from the SMX-4 unperf to a pair of SuperTech R perfs. The Techs are just as comfy as the SMX-4, but with a very sturdy ankle brace. It certainly is a nice secure feeling.
I haven't noticed much of a temp difference between the two on the GSXR, but I rode an SV650 which didnt have any lower fairing, and I certainly noticed the perf then. Guess the wind just drives straight in without a fairing pushing it around.
Save for the SMX-Plus or the SuperTechs, they are definitely worth it
