Still very fairly new to this; knee pads was one thing I didn't think about gear-wise. I have just ordered a pair and should get them in a few days. Thanks much for the information.

Got A* kneepads from Motorcycles Unlimited this weekend. More and more i'm starting to look like something from Robotech, lol.

Still would rather be 100% robotech'd out than 100% FORD.

Switched over to the Knox armor. Much more comfortable than my previous pair. Very flexible and softer on the inside.

I always wear my Icon Knees over my jeans, but I don't trust them much... But some knee protection is always better than nothing anyway.
