Busa Dave made me think of this when he reminded me in a recent post that there are two kinds of riders, those who have been down and those who are going down.
I bought a set of "Draggin' Jeans" for the wife and I this past summer and I highly recommend them. They look like regular blue/black jeans on the outside and have Kevlar sewn into the seat and knee areas to protect against road rash if you go down. They're around $80 to $100.
Now, I for one have never had just the right George Michael-type ass to get away with wearing leather pants so this was the next best option. Take a look at them at www.dragginjeans.com.
It's really kind of ironic though. The more stuff like this I buy, the more 300' smokey burnouts I seem to do !
I just flew in from Grand Rapids this am---3 degrees and a winter storm expected tonight!!!! Am going to get the new tire put on this am at TBH! I plan on getting a pair of those jeans--will finish looking into this later! GOTTA GO RIDE!!!! :cop2:
