I tuck my jeans into my boots, but actually wear my adventure pants over the top of them.

Why the difference? Well my jeans are loose at the end and I don't want to get it caught on the footpeg when coming to a stop. My adventure pants have zips and velcro at the bottom to keep them really close to the boot, so it's not an issue.

I look like a bit of a nerd wearing jeans tucked into boots when I'm walking around uni, but I don't really care what people think of my fashion sense.

Respectfully from the Pacific NorthWet,

I learned on Tuesday that a 2000 Triumph Sprint ST is perfectly designed to inject water right up the over pants and fill your boots when you hydroplane.

I guess I should've been more specific.

Summer> riding pants go in, rain pants go out.

Winter> layering pants go in, overpants go out.

So I guess my answer to the original question of whether I tuck my pants in or leave them out is Yes

Pants out. I've never had the issue with catching footpegs, and at my base in the Air Force they made it mandatory to tuck the trousers in. I hated how that felt, always.

The few times I did ride off road, I still kept them out, but I probably should have put rubber bands on the outside. Mud and all kinds of junk ended up on my calves by the end of the day.

I often wear my Sidi Crossfires now. Usually I ride with Klim in-the-boot pants. Now that it's cold. I'm wearing my Firehose pants. They look funny tucked in the boots, but they won't go over.

always over, I feel like a twat when they're tucked in.

The only possible exception I might allow is a full on leather racing suit.

Ditto. For same reasons.

For dirt, I am going to pants over boots. Although I still have 3 pairs of pants IN boots MX style pants.

I am VERY cognizant of my laces and pants leg when riding on the street. Had a friend fall into me and we both went down at a light cause he caught his shoelace. He ordered moto specific boots that day. We laughed, all was well.

I wrote this on the Killboy thread, but laces got me one day even though I double-knotted them and tucked them into the boots.

My left leg got knocked back and off the peg like I had hit a groundhog at 60 MPH with my foot. I didn't know what had happened until our next stop.

The one thing I just don't get is how you all can stand your pant legs flapping in the 80 MPH winds when doing highway miles. Maybe this thread is already off-base since it leaves speed out of the equation, but I'm sure I could stand pant legs out for 45 MPH and under, but for higher speeds it's just not enjoyable. Maybe some of you guys only ride around town or at paced speeds?

Out

Out, always out. Both my Motoport and my Vanson trousers cinch up very tightly around the outside of my combat boots, and they keep the laces from coming loose if they were to somehow break or came untied or untucked. If I switch to actual motorcycle or engineer boots, though, I'll reconsider.

The cold numbs it.

I ride mostly highway, hustling (slightly faster then traffic at all times) along. It's never really bugged me. Yeah, it's flapping, but I wear proper fitting jeans, so they don't snap that hard.

Maybe you should give up those JNCOs, or Bell Bottoms, whichever is applicable.

Commuting, just a helmet, shoes etc. . .

Off road, full armour except a leatt brace.

Motocross pants - in boots.

Enduro pants - outside boots.

I lose skin from time to time, but it's too hot ( and waay too humid) here to be an ATGATT bitch.

Summer pants in the boots.

Winter/rain pants outside of the boots, but cinched down with the included Velcro straps.

No laces!
