The OP is looking at this entirely wrong.

WTF is 'too' Stormtrooper?
Full on Stormtrooper is still not 'too' Stormtrooper.
Get rid of her and find a new wife who is a Star Wars fan.

With leather pants on the outside rain still goes down in your boot.

It's not like you're asking something like "do I have to turn clockwise or counter-clockwise to undo my front wheel", which is a legit question.


Your question doesn't ask for a real answer since it's all a matter of preference.


To be fair, you asked for an "opinion" but still.






OK...I guess I only had a bad day, I dunno. Sorry for the little rant.
Not to mention there's been more then a few threads asking this same damn question. Not quite as many as which tires or oil to use though.

In and Out has great burgers and fries, I like them.

Oh! Not about burgers!

My one piece suit won't fit in, it is a problem because there is a slit open between the two velcro snaps, and it sometimes gets caught in my footpeg and I had a few incidents that I almost dropped the bike.

I had similar problems with my bicycle, pants get caught in the pedal sprocket, I have a short snap strap that I use on my pantleg now it is either snapped on my leg and when off on my helmet so I don't forgget.

Threads like this show just long long winter has been.

I did get out and rode some today. It is surprising just how good it was for my mental health.

Namaste'

I did, too. And for the hell of it, I wore my leathers and tucked them into my boots. Later on, I went out again, and wore my textiles, which I pulled over my boots! OMG, I did both..... I'm ambipantstrous!!

Eek

The OP needs new boots.

Didn't anybody catch his statement about the laces tangling on the foot-peg?

hahahah, classic. I'm very much the same though - jeans into boots, textile pants outside of boots.... and in any case, rain pants outside of boots (duh)

I heard someone say somewhere that tucking your jeans into your boots was a very British thing to do

Good point. None of my moto boots have laces.
