I wear 'em over,and buy them longer for the bike. So if I normally wear a 32" inseam, I buy 34s for riding. These are good too, to keep them from riding up-

You Bet!

Ditto for me! As to the question about the jeans, I tuck them inside my boot uppers and keep the leathers on the outside. Friggin' bugs are huge here and bite when they get up your pantleg.... Also, in the cool weather riding it is nice to keep the breeze OFF the knees... PLUS, when your wife describes you as "wholesomely unnattractive", who cares what you look like in the parking lot?

My Drill Instructors taught me that only Sailors and Coasties tuck their pants in their boots. Maybe Airfolks, too, but they don't rate.

The not-too-fat girls look pretty cute with their pants tucked into their boots. Men, fat or otherwise, don't.
