Pants: Often overlooked riding pants are actually more important than most people think. Good riding pants will offer protection from not only the rain and wind but also a potential accident. Again look for pants with knee and hip armour as these are most prone to injury. Almost all motorcycle pants are water proof but be sure to check. Fair weather riders might also want to consider protective jeans such as Bull-IT that offer not only the look but also abrasion resistance and optional additional knee and hip armour.
