    all kinds of riding boots offer protection.juz depends on how much and what kind. do search around abit in the accessories forum. FYI,its better go get a waterproof riding boot..thats imho. there are brands like Spada,Alpinestars, many many more...for me i bought timberland boots. water proof and has ankle protection. nice looking too. cost price 239 dollars. hehe..if not get the brand Hi-Tec.heard from other forum peeps that quite cheap and waterproof too.

    If you want to get a pair of riding boots, get a pair of riding boots. They are made for the job.

    I don't see the point of spending $200+ on safety boots that are not meant for motorcycling. You can get a good pair of riding boots for that price.

    DO NOT wear steel toe safety boots for riding. They are meant to be worn as work boots, not riding boots.

    In the unfortunate event of an riding accident (touch wood&#33, your foot may be caught or bent at an awkward angle & the steel toe may just shear all your real toes off...

    I am not kidding...

    I have 2 pairs of Timberlands (both around $170). The boots themselves are not too bad, comfortable & decent enough to wear casually as well... I didn't buy the Goretex version so they are not waterproof, but no problems for light showers. The only thing I feel is lacking about timberlands are the sole has somewhat poor grip on wet roads..

    My Columbia grips very well on wet roads though

    I also have a pair of SIGMA riding boots (about $80) from Chong Aik (Desker Road) Initially, they pinch your toes badly, but after they are seasoned, then its a pretty good value for $$ riding boots. Waterproof & decent looking. Only problem is, its been only a year but its cracking already & ready for replacement. No matter, still a good bargain for $80...

    hey hey, i have a recommendation... i bought this Oxstar Goretex riding boots, $280. It's feels very comfortable, and value for money, full protecton racing boots. No weird colors, suitable for daliy use. and easy to wear, i can wear it or take it off by only using one hand. And it seems to be cheaper in singapore. it costs around 200 pounds in UK.

    The timberlands are normal boots, but its not bad to wear it for riding as well. For your weak ankle, I'd recommend hi-cut boots.

    Seriously though, do consider proper riding boots, I believe its worth the investment even if its $200+.

    Hmm.. Tink I'll do a price check on the riding boots and hi-cut boots.. If the prices differences r not great, then I'll go for riding boots coz wat u said makes sense.. Riding boots r designed for protection during riding.. Thanks for ur info..

    After my second accident, I wore a leather jacket almost everyday. But realised it was quite impractical because I would look as if I weathered a thunderstorm (perspiration) whenever after I reach my destination. After that I invested in a mesh 2 pcs suit.

    Regardless of the ride and weather condition, I will wear at least a pair of gloves (w/ some leather padding, mesh and CF knuckles), jeans and covered shoes to ride. For more sun-glaring days, I will wear my denim jacket, if not, my cordura-mesh armoured jacket. And ofcourse my FF helmet.

    On longer trips or speed blasts up Malaysia, I will wear full touring gear. The 2 pcs mesh armoured suit, long leather gloves and leather track boots. And also a 1 pcs leather suit for track.

    Quite light, and reasonably airy.

    Protects chest and spine.
    Too bad don't have shoulder cup like the American football player's padding.

    try finding at chiong aik..

    the last time i went they had a very good deal for a mesh armour jacket that came with a rain coat in the pouch at the back of it.. $95 only very very cheap for a mesh armour jacket.

    hard knuckle gloves for $15 only..

    plus boots to go along, maybe you can drop by mustafa to go buy kings boots its about $40 or around there..

    helmet if you can basic can buy MHR OF-505 at chiap lee for $50.

    sunglasses if you need go any hardware shops and ask for the kings sunglasses its abt $5. i use it from my phantom till now and its good to wear and abuse..when drop also not heart pain.

    so entire package about $200 for protection to wear daily.. its worth it..

    King Boots? Are those safety steel toe boots?

    Don't wear steel toe boots when riding, in the event of an accident, there's a possibility that the steel cap could shear off all your toes.

    Just like smoking is allegedly harmful to health, but millions still smoke anyway.
    Its a free world.

    Safety steel toe boots are not meant for riding, but is still better than weariing slippers/sandals.

    Hi All,

    Here's my gear setup
    1) Dainese Riding Boots - bought in 2007
    2) Dainese Gloves (length till wrist) - bought in 2007
    3) Dainese Mesh Jacket - bought in 2008

    Items in my agenda:
    1) OGK FF5 Pearl White Scream Helmet
    2) Dainese Riding pants (still considering)

    I've been buying Dainese gear one item at a time and only when JR is having a sale annually to cut down the cost of my gears. Till now, i think the total cost of my first 3 items add up to be close to $800. If i didn't buy it during their annual sale then i think i could have easily spend more than 1k.

    So i guess it's better to do research first before spending on gears, especially when the economy is so bad now.

    Hope by the time i get my new 2009 white hornet 600 at end of the year, the economy will be better.

    Just wondering, those who have mesh jacket, do you guys buy the half length or full length spine protector inserts? I was wondering whether it'll be very warm behind.

    After browsing the previous pages of posts, i realised that no one bought any dainese gears. Seems like alphinestars is quite popular here compared to dainese. I'm a big fan of dainese items. Ha.

    aiyo, are u talking about safety boots of cheapo brand. Think about this, safety boots toe cap can take up to one tonne of weight vs a footwear that doesnt have this feature, in the event of a car that runs over your toes, imagine which footwear gives better protection?


    Just sharing my tots.

    Thats talking about a normal load. If its a shear load (i.e. your foot may be twisted in an awkward angle in an accident), its a different story. The steel cap can & may shear your toes off.

    It can be difficult to visualize. Just take it that I'm blowing hot wind if you don't believe me.

    Any specific reason why you did that bro? Just curious.
    Cos i personnally feel that there won't be sufficient protection if it's without armour.

    I don't feel comfortable with the armour on. Even without it, its already hot.
    I appreciate & agree with your comment on protection, but I make my own choices.

    1) Dainese Riding Boots - bought in 2007
    2) Dainese Gloves (length till wrist) - bought in 2007
    3) Dainese Mesh Jacket - bought in 2008

    Items in my agenda:
    1) OGK FF5 Pearl White Scream Helmet
    2) Dainese Riding pants (still considering)

    I've been buying Dainese gear one item at a time and only when JR is having a sale annually to cut down the cost of my gears. Till now, i think the total cost of my first 3 items add up to be close to $800. If i didn't buy it during their annual sale then i think i could have easily spend more than 1k.

    So i guess it's better to do research first before spending on gears, especially when the economy is so bad now.

    Hope by the time i get my new 2009 white hornet 600 at end of the year, the economy will be better.

    Just wondering, those who have mesh jacket, do you guys buy the half length or full length spine protector inserts? I was wondering whether it'll be very warm behind.

    After browsing the previous pages of posts, i realised that no one bought any dainese gears. Seems like alphinestars is quite popular here compared to dainese. I'm a big fan of dainese items. Ha.
    Excellent choice dude, whats the damage like?

    hmm.. haven't actually done any research on that. But most likely will still go back to JR and get a mesh pants during their next annual sale which is likely end of this yr.

    I dun think i wanna get a water resistant or splash proof pants as i'll still be sticking to my trusty RS Taichi high end Drymaster X during rainy season.

    proper head to toe stuff regardless of bike cc is not weird or wrong
    in fact that should be the way to go
    just imagine...
    pass 2b thinks, aiya no prob. small bike, cannot speed too much, nothing much can go wrong

    mebbe you get lucky and nothing happens till 2a
    then you WILL think to yourself, in the last 1 1/2 years nothing much happened so open face, t shirt and bermudas and slippers is ok lah...

    eventually that mentality will become a norm to you until you get your full Cl 2...
    then imagine you doing 150k's in a tshirt, shorts and flip flops...

    you only need a pebble or another errant motorist to cause you to lose all tha hard work you've put into getting your full class 2 and big bike

    so it's a good thing to start from day 1, even if you don't ever get a cl 2 bike

    safety is a cheap form of insurance. - writer unknown

    i've got lots of 2b friends..generally those riding kups and sports bikes saying why you ride phantom wear full face..look like a idiot..bla bla .. after a while you just give up explaining to them..and simply say my face my head my choice.

    how did the conception that only big cc bikes can wear full face and gears without being scrutinised..come about..

    Admittedly I don't wear any gear. If I happen to have gloves on it's more of a fashion accessory

    But I agree wholeheartedly on investing in at least some protection - it doesn't have to be a $2,000 full race suit but a tough pair of Spanish corduroy pants and leather boots ( again fashion accessory ) did protect my right ankle when I was squashed by my 125Z that topped over last year.

    Now, you -can- pick up a cub very easily, singlehandedly even. And that was a good thing.

    But we're on much larger machines than cubs right now so I have to start thinking on 'ballistic protection'.

    Secondly, no one is proof from a motorcycle accident so prevention is better than cure. I have shared with pureice and co. (last week at Planet) about my crashing a CG125 at over 70kph at BBDC 7 years ago. It was only a fun memory because I was in a very antique and very thick Army jacket along with long gloves which enabled me to fly over the handlebars and across a grass patch without incident. They don't make such jackets these days

    Oh, and that's the good thing about NOT having a windscreen too.

    Unforunately once on the road I seem to have pretty poor habits in safety dress code. The above accident in "controlled conditions" would not be pretty at all last night when I did a mock tour/rally with a CBR150 in nothing but a cotton blouse and jeans That's an example NOT to follow.
