Has anyone had riding pants on ..and on the freeway had warm (hot) air go up there leg when using the kury longhorn highway pegs? I actually do get warmer and was wondering what people do to combat it. I have tried the leg blouses used in by the military which seem to work to keep the pant leg end tight. Any other ideas? Just curious. Its just something else to strap down when prelaunching...

All my "riding pants" have velcro straps to cinch the bottom tighter to the leg. (Important as you do not want the pant riding up in fall)

If your pants lack this feature, or do not allow you to tighten the bottom as much as you would like, a quick trip to a fabric store for some 1" wide velcro, some nylon thread and a needle can solve this issue forever.

You can even fore go the needle and thread and get the double-sided velcro roll that sticks to itself available at Home Depot. Cut to fit and you have a handy pants cinch.

It's still better than a warm feeling running down your legs,before the next rest stop.

Kidding aside, try these or something along those lines. They work well for me.

I ordered the black pant boot straps...low key but will work great with the pants!

The straps are pretty handy in cold weather too....cold air up the leg sucks balls! If I had chaps, maybe these wouldn't be necessary but chaps way more money (but way tougher, OH, OH, AH, AH ~Tim Allen~)!
