My dad rode when he was my age and him and all his mates always wore denim for protection. he has told me so many stories about coming off the bikes he owned and his denim jacket and pants saved his skin. Even my old barber who rides told me he had a trusty pair of jeans when he was my age that saved his legs plenty of times. Now days all i hear is normal Jeans are no protection, get ones with kevlar or leather inserts. What happened to jeans to make them so unsafe?
