Hey guys I'd bee really keen to hear your thoughts re what follows. I am a bit of a week end rider, not really into racing or exceeding speed limits. I am quite conscious of safety too. I've been wandering what protective gear I should get for my lower body. I used to have a pair of all weather Rjays pants but after 2 month, had a whole near my crotch (can't even imagine what would happen if I were to come off with those pants - ouch!) What I want is something convenient that I can wear without looking like I ride a bike and that protects me well. So I decided not to go for leather pants (they are also quite expensive). Draggin jeans seemed like a nice option but they cost around $250 (for nice looking ones) and it means that I only have one pair of pants for riding. Plus only kevlar on knees and arse. I thought I would buy the K-Legs from Draggin (kevlar leggings). That would enable me to wear whatever pants I have on top of them and I feel quite safe having kevlar all over my legs - not just my arse and my knees. Then I love my knees so I thought that I would need knee guards. The ones you put in Draggin jeans are fixed with velcro - I'm not too sure of how that would hold if you come off... So I thought I would buy a pair of Thor 09 Static Knee Guards - it looks quite comfy, not too heavy, holds well around your knee and not too big so I can still feel my tank between my legs. What do you guys reckon?
