Default Re: Motorcycle Thread

Kevlar reinforced jeans like the Draggin Jeans are better than regular jean for abrasion resistance, I recall reading somewhere the Draggins are good for up to 5 seconds sliding on asphalt where regular denim is good for a whole .5 second. I still would throw some under armour on with them myself. Don't think armoured knees are a good idea? Here's a little test : Put on a pair of your favourite jeans and take a kitchen chair out to the driveway. Stand on the chair and then drop to your knees on the pavement. Now multiply that by about a billion! And if you are one of those that think "it won't happen to me"... remember that there are only two kinds of motorcycle riders, those that have wiped out and those that are going to.

I feel sorry for people who don't drink. When they wake up in the morning, that's as good as they're going to feel all day.
