Man I'm so glad you brought this up Jimmy! I do a lot of offroad riding and I'd never go out without knee pads. I used to wear them on the road and noticed no one else did so I quit. Figured I'd be the freak.

It sure is a nice feeling to know that your kneecaps aren't going to get ripped off when you go down.

I think I'll start again, Thanks

Until I got my motoport jeans which has pads in the knees, I always wore knee pads under my jeans and cargo pants... just made sense.

It may take more than knee pads when your riding with Jimmy.
