Riding pants

I have been considering getting the leather pants that go with my jacket but I've been worried that they will be hard to ride in.

Are they?

Re: Riding pants

Typically they'll only be hard to ride in if they're the wrong size. They're made for riding motorcycles.

Lol true, but in NC you only see them on cruise bikers. Cool well I think I am going to get some, denim doesn't compare to leather.

Re: Riding pants

Once you dance in them to break them in, they're just fine

Re: Riding pants

Being in TX, I opt for textile jacket/pants when I'm going to do anything remotely serious on the bike. Better than jeans, not quite as good as leather... but it works better for the environment and my riding style.

Are they?

They're easy to ride in, they are hard to walk in. So unless you plan to put them on and go to a party or shopping with the girls, yeah, they are cut to fit properly while you are sitting on the bike.

Ok cool! I'm also looking into getting either the puma boots, or sidi high top shoes.
