There's a guy that takes pics on one of my fav roads I ride on. Figured I'd post a few of me that he took. His handle is pdmotophoto on instagram. Let's see if you guys have any riding or just cool pics of your bikes

Gotta love when the sun comes out for sure. It's like 85 here in San Diego CA. I gotta admit. Silver is pretty bad ass. The color I have is the only one they had so I snatched it up. Can't complain. I love em all. Especially black. Have fun out there where your at.

Nice pics. I miss riding around San Diego. I lived there for three years. As long as I wasn't on duty or working on the bike I was either riding around Telegraph, Julian, or Palomar Mountain. Absolutely fantastic roads in pretty much every direction.

If your in the armed forces thanks for your service man. All very fun roads. Can't complain about the weather or the twisty roads in my area that's for sure.

Thanks man. I though I was gonna catch crap for wearing jeans. I ordered some pants from motoport, hopefully they come in soon. It's a little scary riding around with just the jacket.
there is nothing wrong with riding jeans.

That's my issue. I've been riding in regular blue jeans. Got a call yesterday, overpants are ready.

Regular jeans aren't bad to ride in. As long as they aren't designer jeans that are paper thin and already "worn" with fashion holes. They will offer decent protection for at least one slide at normal road speeds. If you take a slide at 90 mph, you definitely need to shift your weight around during the slide. They will get eaten through rather quickly.

Low-sided and XS-400 back in '79 while wearing Levis. The left leg sustained no damage. My outer left calf road-rashed about the size of a potato when the pant leg was push up out of the way by the asphalt. :sneaky:

Damn, I'm hoping I never get to experience that. I've had enough pain in my life. But ide still like to be prepared. My biggest worry is someone on there cell phone posting while driving. I can't count how many times I see people taking selfies of casually browsing the net while driving. Saw a guy in a tesla the other day playing a game while on the freeway.

I crashed a few times in my youth. Every time I was wearing denim. Never got more than a scraped knee. As has been stated, so long as it's good denim (go find real workman's jeans) and not super-fine designer stuff, they have decent abrasion resistance.

That's why I installed a Denali Split Soundbomb air horn on my bike. Nothing beats the look of a drivers face when 130 db of dual tone scares the crap out of them and tells them they made a big mistake at the same time.

Definitely won't argue that. I've been looking at riding jeans more and more since there are more companies that make them without the $200 price tag. I'll probably end up getting a pair before summer hits. Peace of mind is nice.

Hanging in the closet are three riding jeans. Cortech, Sliders, and K Fifty-2. The Reax from Cycle Gear/Revzilla have a similar fit as the K Fifty-2 (slim). Cortech is baggy, but that was the style in early 2000's. Sliders are good. K Fifty-2 is the fav.
