Bought my first pair of leather chaps and received them today. After 35+ years of riding I thought I'd give this a try since I know better than to try to convince myself to wear armored motorcycle pants. The pair I received are from LeatherUp and were surprising inexpensive for the heavy leather, and quality stitching that they are. But I will admit that it took me a minute to figure out how to put them on. Not quite like putting a pair of pants on, but I think that they will add a degree of safety for me. I think I could even wear them over a pair of shorts rather than jeans. I had to cut about 6 inches off the bottom to make them wearable, but that should not be a problem. I wonder whether or not I should buy a set of spurs since wearing these makes me feel like a cowboy. Hopefully my motorcycle will not leave piles of poop behind us like a horse.
