My complaint is more that I have cheaper Alpinestars with less ankle support. I like the Idea of the hinge on the SG 12 and don't like the Fit of the Tech 10 with the bootie. The next Alpinestars boot without a bootie is a Tech 7 and they seemed somewhat ... more »

I use the motorex since it's recommended, though finding 15W-50 is difficult even at my local KTM dealer sometimes. Talking to the guys there, a lot of riders that come in that shop are using the motorex 10W-30 as an alternative in the 125s and 150s. ... more »

I see you're in Michigan, I took my 150 to JP Speed up in Holly and would highly recommend him. He has a very good setup for the AER 48 which included a revalve, and upgrading a few internal components. He also did my shock which included the low friction ... more »

I'd just like to know the justification behind Hartranft being penalized when AC wasn't. I see the math above, fine I'll pretend for a second I agree with it. Still doesn't remain consistent with AC cutting the first turn and having no penalty after ... more »

Dumb title. I do think the sand rhythm will be a cool section though, it's something different.

I was thinking the same penalty for Cianciarulo a few weeks back and he cut the first turn off of the start. Where's the consistency?
