Chaps are dangerous-need riding pants!

I caught my left chap on my shifter this morning when I was stopped. Thank I didn't go over, but I looked like an idiot trying to pull it loose without falling

I need some riding pants- men's small or women's med, so I can wear them over my jeans when I ride in winter

I've always thought chaps were really a poor choice for motorcycle gear. They may be ok for keeping the cold wind off your legs, but as far as protective gear - not much good. No impact protection (knee pads - hip pads - etc). Most of them I've seen have nothing on the ! Cool for posing and highlighting your , but not worth a hoot when you're sliding @ 70mph on your down some aggresive pavement. Seems Brandy has discovered another reason not wear them beyond the pose point.

I bet they have fringe.... that's why she wears them...


BTW, when leather gets cold, it stays cold... so the chaps, unless insulated, cant do much after a long ride.

I wear these, they are inexpensive, tough, fit great, made by Alpinestar, but make you look like a stormtrooper.

It has already happened....LOL

I would recommend some textile pants, they are warmer than leather and still provide protection. Checkout Newenough.com they ususally have a pretty good selection and are pretty reasonably priced.
