OK, they're gonna cost you about 100 bucks. They're comfortable, plenty of protection. They look hot but are not, at least if your moving. I normally wear a large but had to get a 3x to fit me....

No regrets !!

We had a HD Heritage Softail , now we have a R1200GS. Why didn't I get one sooner. With the HD the wife could maybe make a 100 mile ride without complaining. Long distance was out of the question....
