Fairly new here, and just getting back into riding, after a multiple year hiatus. Been buying gear over the past couple weeks, and when it came time for new boots, I took a trip out to Bayside Performance.
I dealt with Johnny, who took care of me very well. Told him what I wanted(half boot, under $200). I walked away with a pair of Alpinestars S-MX1 boots. Fit great, comfy, and they look good. Sticker price was over $200, so Kevin knocked it down for me, and they came in right on target budget.
Couldn't be happier, I'll be going back.
