I don't like wearing jeans under my riding pants, they bunch up and it's just not comfortable for me. I'm fortunate that I can keep a pair of jeans at work and change when I get here, or in the summer just wear shorts under my pants. That leaves the winter... Riding in my boxers and riding pants gets dam* cold and sweating my but off all day in longjohns is no fun either.

The answer of course is Aerostitch's TL Tec Fleece Pants ! I ordered a pair the other day and have been wearing them for a week or so and feel confident saying they work durn well! there's three options to choose from ranging in price from $77 for the "cool" weather version I got to the "cold" version for $87 to the "Gad Dam*, you riding in this sh*T???" version for $97. Unfortunatly the catalog doesn't explain this, the only way to differentiate the three is color and price, but it's fairly obvious.

The pants will of course work with any riding pants, probably jeans too if they're baggy and as with all Aerostitch products are sized right for us 'Muricans, meaning XXL fits me, not some 190lb Asian. They have a full length zip down each side and a hook and loop + zipper in the front, as well as a wallet pocket in the back. I wear them over my boxers as pants, the bottom is elastic and is meant to be worn over boots, then with you riding pants over them.

They're nice and soft and stretchy and warm as toast in the upper 30*s and low 40*s I've worn them in so far and are basically invisible in that you don't really know you're wearing them, your legs just aren't cold. Workmanship appears to be top notch and they're made right here in the USA and guarenteed by Aerostitch

In combination with the fleece jacket liner, also available in three temp. ranges they so far have kept me warm, dry and comfy in temps ranging from low 30*s to mid 50*s and drizzle to downpour, Highly recommended if you want to be warm this winter.

I feel like I'm becoming a shill for these guys but honestly all their stuff I've tried has been the best fitting and most usefull gear I've owned, well worth the money.

Always good to hear about solid cold-weather riding gear. So, thanks for that. And I concur on the quality of Aerostitch merchandise. I've bought a few things from them over the past couple of years (the big ass messenger back for instance) and been thoroughly impressed with the quality and functionality of the items.

No sweat.

You still haven't noticed your wallet is missing? Oh, and I have the deed to your cabin too.
First off my wallet has no money in it and my wives have already maxed out the credit card.

Second, after a few visits to the cabin under my wives' tutelage and you'll be begging me to take it back rather than having to chop even MORE firewood, replace the decks, paint, dig a new outhouse....... Oh and don't forget you need to buy a snowmobile so you can even get to it.

Thanks.

wow, that looks like a nice place
Cost us less than KP's Lexus. It's tripled in value in the last 9 years. And the national mortgage woes haven't affected local values one bit. That would be a real investment. Not bolt-on chrome HD bits type of "investment". A democrat administration's anti-development policies will only increase it's value. So will a Republican hands off policy. Win-win.

The secret is to simply not put your wealth in your driveway. Instead of a Lexus buy a used Corolla. Buy land you can afford within 100 miles of any medium to large western city with the money you save. Buy it before Hillary! closes all available lands in 2009. Wait a few years. People are desperate to find getaways out of the urban pollution.

Are you sure we aren't related somehow?

I bought 40 acres in northern AZ (30 minutes south of the Grand Canyon, 45 minutes northwest of Flagstaff) when I was 25. I have a pick up truck that will be paid off in a year and it only has 31000 miles on it. The other car is paid off. We stretched ourselves on the farmhouse compound, but the rates are good and fixed.

Could be.

Our vehicles... all of them, cars, truck, bikes, sled.... are all paid off. The Truck has 150K on it, but I'm just going to drop a factory waranteed new small block in it when it needs it. I'm not planning on ever buying a new truck. You gotta be kidding about the new prices. Cabin was bought out right off the sale of land we'd bought in the 80's that skyrocketed during the Olympics insanity.

Yeah, luck's involved. But you make your own luck. Depending on anyone else to take care of you is a fool's game. Expecting the govt to is even worse.

How's that land doing? I've not been to Flagstaff in many years so I don't know how big it's getting. If the coasties discover northern Arizona like they did Wyoming's Star Valley and Montana then hold on to your hat. The downside is they bring in the same stupid politics that created the crime ridden hellholes they are trying to escape. Look at what the New Yorkers have done to New Hampshire and Florida. What the Californians did to Boulder, Colorado. Sad.

I don't worry about any of that shyt. I'm dedicated to having as much fun as I can while I'm still breathing. It all ends in a dirt nap anyway, and we never know what day it all ends, so better get it in now. My favorite saying is that there ain't no U-Haul hitched to the hearse. This ain't no dress rehersal boys. Get yer asses out on the road!

I just got back from a nice ride up and over Palomar mountain. About 105 miles total. Lots of fire damage.

It was a shivering 80 degrees today but I manned up and left the electric vest at home. One more day like this and the Duc will be ready for it's 1st service.

Oh yeah. I'm sure skimping myself on motorcycle riding. I'm gonna change my ways now. You bet. Thanks for the advice. I'd better buy more bikes since apparently 5 isn't enough.(eyes rolling)

The nine acres goes with the cabin. Locked gate. Private land. Guaranteed off road riding no matter what the BLM rules become under Hitlery. Better buy some yourself. Might be the only place to ride after another decade of Global Warming nut activity.

... I'm still at it in Utah. Temperature overnight was only 45. Goldwing's purring along to work and the Zrex is still carving canyons on weekends. Thank God for global warming! Longer riding season. And when the oceans all rise 20 feet (as the manbearpig predicts) next year then BrowningBAR will be owning beach front property. Cool!

Is there anyone left living along Palomar road to complain about irresponsible loud V-twin motorcycles?

I think most of the houses up there survived. They weren't complaining about loud Vtwins. They were complaining about idiot sportbike riders riding way over their heads and crashing into everything.
