Years ago, I decided to start buying gear. Today, I ride with full-face helmet, jacket, gloves and boots, and until just recently blue jeans. In cold weather, I ride with a pair of Tourmaster Caliber pants, but only in cold weather.
I've been on a mission to find the perfect riding pants. http://www.sojournchronicles.com/200...-riding-pants/
