2020 Alpinestars Product Launch and Ride

What do you consider a good day? For me it was an invite to check out the new 2020 Alpinstar gear lineup. Not to mention I shared a track or should I say got passed by the likes of guys like Jason Anderson, Justin Barcia, Ricky Brabec and others. Alps gear is alway sweet, well made and seems to conform to the body position of a rider, even if that ride does not always have great body position or a larger than average body for a motocrosser, yes, size 36 and proud.

Yours Truly sporting new gear and about to ride-Really!

A crew of journalists, web pilots and social media talent took over a section of Milestone just before a heat wave hit So Cal. Yes it was a good day to spin some laps on one of KTM’s 2020 450SX with new gear and a freshly groomed track. Not a bad Tuesday if you ask me.

Alps has a full line of moto/off-road gear, not to mention boots, helmets and a slew of protective gear. Goggles? Not yet but I bet they are probably working on a pair.
