    What kinda pants do you wear?

    Basically the topic. I am just curious what kinda pants you guys wear when you go out. I am thinking of getting some of the thick jean joe rocket pants for around town cruising, and then a set of leathers for longer roadtrips/possible track days. Does anyone have any recommendations?

    I want a set of leathers too... I'm saving up for a set from Barnacle Bill's:

    In the summer I ride in jeans, only b/c I haven't yet sprung for the pants to match the Fieldsheer Titanium Air jacket I just bought. The minute it's cool enough (like this week), I pull out my leather pants and jacket. No armor, but much better than jeans.

        I wear the Bohn armored pants under my jeans.
        Very comfortable...........never leave home without them.

          I thought I chimed in on a related subject recently, but I guess not...Anyways, I've got a pair of mesh Firstgear pants. They're pretty nice, keep me very cool in the heat, and they've lived through a crash already and are still together!
          I know I dreamed you,
          A sin and a lie.
          I have my freedom,
          But I don't have much time.
          Faith has been broken,
          Tears must be cried.
          Let's do some living,
          After we die.

            I finally bought armored leathers!!! Woohoo! I look like a total Power Ranger and I don't give a [email protected]!

            Alpinestars Ice jacket & Track pants, and a pair of Sidi B2 boots, along with Fieldsheer's Titanium Air jacket & pants for the hotter days. Still running around in a sub-$100 Cirus lid, but it's good for another year and then I'll spring for an Arai or Shoei or something.

                Draggin Jeans, I got a pair for $70 at VIR and they lasted very well for 5 years until I wrecked my Sprint ST, and the performed very well, the kevlar was injust the right places and wasn't phased by the pavement. Didn't stop some bruising, but my skin was in good shape. They also look the most like regular jeans and sell a lined version for colder weather, I am definitely getting another pair..
