One thing about these Sidi crossfire boots, trousers inside or out, they're like a blast furnace in the summer!

Maybe some of us wear pant that don't flap in the wind.

i used to do pants in the boots ie mx style with msr goretex pants & goretex adv styled boots. never understood pants over the boots concept until i bought some klim over the boots summer pants. now i have klim traverse ones (goretex) and will never look back at pants in the pants. sure maybe for the track, but for everything else pants outside of the boots.

msr did make pants in the boots w/ gortex (ISDE pants) years ago.
seems all goretex and the like are over the boots now.

i haul ass and have never felt my Klim pants flapping around? maybe you're talking cheapy or supper baggy over boots yo-boy/mx ones.
like this: http://www.extremesupply.com/product...Fe5FMgodAAIAJg
Klim material is heavy duty and includes huge velcro bands to size the bottom of the pant tight around the boot.
for the $ i think the Klim traverse pants are plenty of goretex tech to mix with any upper system you use street or dirt hot or cold.
http://www.klim.com/en-us/shop/moto/men/pants/4051-660


if you look at all the street/sport touring pants they are all over the boot and we're talking 125+ mph bikes here.

Flapping pant legs don't bother me the slightest bit, I don't even notice it.

I am a noob in the attire department, but always wear jeans or riding pants OVER my packer boots.

The packer boots go back many years to my cowboy days. There were two fashion styles for cowboys. Outside the boot for most of us, and inside the boot for those cowboys that used them to hold the back legs of the sheep...

Usually out if only one layer. Always out if riding in rain. If two layers then inner layer may be tucked in depending on what boots I'm wearing. I have some leather pants that will only go inside boots and I have some pants that flap in the wind and so may get tucked in - depending on what boots I'm wearing.

I guess the answer is "It depends!"

Well, it's not like my adventure pants don't have velcro and zips at the bottom, and just to try it out again I rode around today with my pants over my boots... but I still say that both wears the pants out from the inside-out with most offroad boots' buckles, and puts wear and tear on the cuffs that just don't belong there when tall motorcycle boots are made to withstand abrasion better.

On top of that, cue the myriad of stores of a pant leg getting caught on some part of the bike...

It's just poor form.

I regularly ride 65-75 with pants out and it doesn't bother me. Only tuck them in if I wear my old Army boots (laces tucked in too) or overpants (The're a bit short, so there's about 2 inches of denim sticking out, looks silly)

Well, since 100% of my riding is done with Aerostich Darien pants, this just isn't a consideration. I don't think it would be possible to tuck them in. They have large velcro strips to cinch them up nicely around the boot. The pants I wear under the Dariens usually get tucked in because my boots are too big not to. Even if they weren't, I still would just to keep them from sticking out under the Dariens and getting dirty/wet.
