I don't see why not, but they may be a little restrictive in terms of movement. At least my pants would be.... Most falls I can remember were on my hips and butt. Of course then I didn't need the padding.....now....... yah...... Ah good memories hahahaha...... Hope you have a blast!

I was in academy sports looking at waterproofing spray and all of their cans were aresol and the tops were broken or missing so there is i didn't get any, thinking they may have been busted and sprayed in shipping... But I hope to re spray my gear after the NYD fiasco...

as long as you have good room to move in them i don't see any reason you cant use them. my cold weather riding jacket is a ski jacket I got at a stupidly good price due to it missing the hood.

I just went last week. The Aerostich Darien pants with expedition weight long johns worked great at 32degrees. I took a riding jacket but ended up using a fleece jacket and a North Face rain coat up top. The pants worked great. I did have the pads out though.

Looks pretty far gone for a part that's easy to replace now and will cause pretty nasty engine failure later.

+1 While the case is open, make sure everything is in tip top shape!

For the worried types

newer DR's (not sure what year it changed) don't have this setup. Counter balance shaft is gear driven off crank. Cam chain is still chain driven off crank like 99% of things made today. Cam chain is on the right hand side though.
