Chaps FTW

I ventured out this morning with some long johns and jeans and it was still too cold! Popped open the trunk of the scoot and whipped out the chaps.

So if you ride and need to keep the legs warm there is nothing better than chaps. Easy on, Easy off!

You may just leave'em on cause the chicks dig'em.

I prefer overpants. On and off just as quick as chaps, and I don't freeze my nuts when it gets really cold. Without the insulated liners, I'm good down to 35. Never did test the liners much all of last season, as I park the bike when it gets too far below freezing.

In all my years, I've yet to see a pair of chaps WITH an assless. In fact, aren't chaps, by definition, assless?
