Summer Riding pants

I know that a few of you were looking at Summer Riding pants.

These are what I just had delivered....

http://www.amazon.com/Xelement-Advan...918517-0559924



Mesh lined. CE Padding in the knees. Decent zippers and snaps. Over boot design. $60.


Serious warning. Their Sizing is totally F*'d! I can always order 38" waist pants. I ordered 42's and they work pretty well. The suggestion was made somewhere that you actually take a pair of good fitting pants in your closet and do an actual measurement of the waist band - order that size. It worked for me.

The 1150 is the last of the 'good ones' imo. If it costs $1000 for a tipover (1200GS) it's no longer a dual sport.

The KTM 9X0 will also do down in history as a classic but larger than the 1150. Prolly largely due to it's Rotax roots.

Sorry. BMW got their spot with the R80/100GS and possibly even the 11X0.

I would think Augusta region would be central, that's where we were for that breakfast that time. Sundays are better for breakfast meets almost any weekday evening can work for me.
