CHAPS !!!!!!!!!!!! grow a pair ,,,, you dudes think they make you look all biker tuff,,,pullleeeez ,,, if you know what you're doing ,you dont need em, i notice its usually the newbies that are all tricked out out in the new leather to go along with their first bike ,,,2 months later the bike and the chaps are on craigslist....ps if they're cause your little leggies get cold , buy a car ,
Im gonna have to say as a man who cut a deer in half at 70 miles an hour, if I did not have my chaps on I would have gotton tore up, only a fool puts style over saftey. Chaps make sense wear them for safety, got zippers if cant bear to be seen in them take them off when you get where you are going.Been riding 40 years now on the highway fully leathered and never have I been taken to the emergency room..Good luck to all of you.
Chaps on guys is GAY!! Chaps on guys is really popular with the UK blokes! Not so much here in the US! Better to wear leather pants or a full leather suit. Personally, I get pants a little large so I can fit in them with my jeans. I take my leather pants off when I'm not riding. My full suit, I'll wear at the track only. They can get quite hot (temperature hot) when you're not riding.
Chaps ARE hot on both sexes. Matter of choice. I am gettin some some day, if I ever find a riding buddy. LOL Serve a purpose too. One more layer between the asphault and your skin! GAY? Who started THAT B.S.????
A BLOKE IN CHAPS BETTER BE A YANK... IF A UK BLOKE WEARS CHAPS....YOU KNOW HES STOOD IN FRONT OF THE MIRROR NEKKID EXCEPT FOR THE CHAPS........ DONT DO IT GUYS..... YAQNKS ONLY...OR LASSES..... BLOKES IN CHAPS = WANKER....IMHO
I agree that chaps are extreemly hot on women, with or without clothes on. With a guy on the other hand, they make him look like he dropped a load in his pants. I wore chaps for several years. They were a lot cheaper than leather pants and the front pockets were big enough to carry four beers. Wenever you ride in the rain with chaps on, it looks like you just wet yourself. I just sold my pair a purchased some leather pants that completely unzip down the side. Easy on easy off.
