I dig the black gaerne but have no clue how good they are.

black is more fitting and easier to match then white.

Willard: When I was home after my first tour, it was worse. I'd wake up and there'd be nothing. I hardly said a word to my wife, until I said "yes" to a divorce. When I was here, I wanted to be there; when I was there, all I could think of was getting back into the jungle.

yeah, they're pricey for sure. I got mine for 350, guy bought the wrong size and couldn't return them.

I was thinking about getting the gaerne's as well, but decided that the sidi's are worth the pricetag.

by the way, if you do get the white sidi's, they wont stay white for long.

BH,
I keep readin that the Sidi's are super stiff and almost impossible to shift with. Any truth to that? or I wonder if that's just mx boots in general. I wonder if I should just get some alpinestars mx boots since I'll probably do the roadrace knee down style thingy anyway.

It took me a while to get used to shifting in the MX boots. I think it is all of them in general. I can't really use my ankle to shift its more of a whole leg thing.

I would say the sidis are extremely flexible, comfortable, and adjustable for an MX boot.

any MX boot is gonna be hard to shift/brake with compared to a RR boot.
