What's your reason NOT to wear pants?

I love the freedom of riding, with the feel of the wind blowing against my legs and ..... other parts. I know it is risky to ride without pants, but what the heck, you only live once and its fun to shock the people waiting at the bus stop. So if you also ride without pants, what is your reason for doing so?

I'm afraid the judge ruled that for the sake of public decency that I should wear pants. Apparently my defence "I thought I was pretty decent your honour" didn't quite stand in court.

I find a simple thong matches my personal risk threshold and offers viewers a 50 state legal, but uncompromising view of my poor personal hygiene and questionable tattoo choices.

If you go without pants, at least wear chaps to still look like a biker.

You guys are all wrong and full of it. You can get the exact same feeling as going without pants as riding with shorts, so there is no good reason to go without pants except ego, vanity, and a sense of machismo.

I use to wear shorts and sandals... But a little case of road rash convinced me that wasn't the best thing to do... LoL

It's an unfair risk that your forcing on others... with you not wearing pants it's everyone ELSE seeing you that stands the risk of serious mental scars.

That's why I don't wear shorts on a bike. Definitely want to have a layer between your skin and the pipes.

Mind you, I rarely wear shorts, anyway. But I'd never ride a bike in them.

This actually happened to my wife last summer. She got stung in the inner thigh and the stinger stayed in her leg when she swatted the bee. She was yelling so I quickly pulled over, she literally vaulted off the bike and dropped her pants right at the roadside. I then had to assist her with the stinger removal. It wasn't until it was all done that we thought of how it my look with me kneeling at the roadside in front of my pants free wife scraping at her inner thigh. Once the swelling (hers) went down, we both had a good laugh out of it.

I've seen a lot of these kinds of girls posing with video game peripherals, and have no idea what systems they even go to. Kinda shatters the illusion.

Probably an equal number of bikini clad motorcycle washers that actually ride. At least they sure do appear not to know what they are washing and where not to squirt water.

When wearing no pants on my motorbike, I get away with tucking it in my boot top and pretending its a varicose vein.

kind of scary when you convert mph to feet / second.

just 20 mph is 29 feet in one second. Even if you slid for 1 second, scraping your bare skin for 30 feet? no thanks.
And if you have not heard of Brittany Morrow(aka "the road rash queen"), i would rather be hot and sweaty than to
experience even a tenth of what she did.

Indeed one can.

Besides. There's always the back seat.

Seriously, though, the biggest tip-off to me, is that her hair is not pulled back, at all. Having plenty of experience in being long haired as hell, I can tell you that NOBODY will ride like that, more than once. The wind does feel great in your hair. The brush, however...

Don't have hair on top but do on face so agree, you do contain it some how some way or pay the price.

Maybe that was her first ride ???
