I am a relatively new rider. I commute to work most days on my 2011 Harley Sportster. 25 miles each way. I get off work at midnight. It gets cold going home, especially this time of year. We are talking in the 30's. These pants work very well. They are easy to put on and take off. They have a lot of reflective areas for night riding. Makes me feel a bit safer when I think other drivers can't help but see me. These pants come with armor in critical areas. They come with a waterproof lining that is easy to take out and put back in. The fit, for me, is just about perfect.
I am not on Harley's payroll. But I'm telling you, these pants are very good. At least they have been for me. I would recommend them to anyone.
