Leathers that is...

It's a sports bike I had and the leathers have the zip at the bottom and go inside the boots....now I've got the VN I feel I cant ride like that...and if not, will have to get diffirent leathers :rolleyes:

Who wears them inside or outsdide their boots?

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....:mad: Also, in the cool weather riding it is nice to keep the breeze OFF the knees...:cool: PLUS, when your wife describes you as "wholesomely unnattractive", who cares what you look like in the parking lot?:D

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

Ponch I don't think you can find any of them in Texas. Half the people down there probably don't know what a mitten is. Lol!! I wear my jeans over the boots I wouldn't tuck them unless I had a real fancy set of cowboy boots at a rodeo. Even then I'd prob put the jeans over. They don't ride up enough for me to even worry about even on the highway pegs.

Just do a google search of "stirrup clips motorcycle" and you'll get a bunch.

Being a product of the ,60s UK rocker scene ,we always wore ex RAF flying boots with the jeans inside them . Since I am now 68 and still wearing flying boots ,old habits die hard . So still jeans inside . But whocares ,individual choice . Rod

My Drill Instructors taught me that only Sailors and Coasties tuck their pants in their boots. Maybe Airfolks, too, but they don't rate.
And real life working cowboys, Lloyd. :D

Only when in the corral where the poop is ankle deep! Never on a horse. At least none of the cowboys I was raised with. :D

I was told only hookers and 10 year olds can get away with tucking their jeans in their boots, but to each their own =)
