Yeah, I haven't ridden since October. I told myself before I ride again, a set of those would be on my knees/shins. I need to get some b/c I think I'll end up riding in February.

I'd you'd worn proper fitting leather track pants, you'd realize that "extra set" won't fit between them and your legs.

My A* pants have the kneepads and shin pads "included" within the pants so they effectively have the same or better protection as those "external" pads do. The external ones are good for street use.

.. I'll second that, had been kicking around getting some.

Last week, it appears it may have been my knee/Hip that took out the headlight/turn signal of the suv in my accident. Then, as someone else pointed out... Popo's incident too.
