Jeans a bad idea

I've said this before. Here's another testimonial with some graphic photos.

But I'll still likely wear jeans myself now and then....until I get some Kevlar jeans.

I picked up a pair of kevlar jeans to try out. I need to pick up a few more pairs...

I'm not a fan of having the knee or hip pads in them though, but at least I'm good with the abrasion resistance.

......I'd rather wake up in the middle of nowhere then in any city on earth.

I had one friend say to me one time "hey, check out these jeans, they're called 'skinny Jeans', they're super light and like paper thin! they are great for riding!" and I said "yeah, until you go down!" I don't think he liked that to much.

if it goes vroom or boom, I LIKE IT!
