Cold weather pant??

Recommended Posts

Hey,

I'm looking for a good cold weather pant for off road riding. I ordered a pair from Rocky's for $99 that looked GREAT, when they came I was very happy with the way they were designed...when I put them on they were about 8" to LONG! :cry:

I'm more interested in windproof than waterproof, because I don't ride in RAIN/SNOW = I'm a weenie!

I'd like an over the boot style of off road pant, that's designed for off road, not sitting in one spot and going down the highway!

I don't really want to go the long underwear route. I bought a coat that is pretty lightweight, but windproof/waterproof and I really like it.

Any ideas?

Thanks!

Get some ski or snowboarding pants :cry: that's what I use and they work great. Now's a good time of year to buy them too.

I have the Acerbis Klima pants and really like them. There's no insulation in them though, so I can just wear long johns under them and they are just about perfect.

walmart has some nylon cargo pants for 19.95. fold in a nice little bag in the rain gear section, last I checked. The medium size will fit up to about 5/10 or 11.

I bought min a couple years ago but they work pertty good, for wind and rain and extremely light weight.

Thanks guys, I'll check out the Thor pants, and maybe look at the other options?

Hossy, they were the Moose expadition pants I believe - GREAT pants, just WAY too long for me :cry:

I use the wally world pants also,they have held up very well for me, over 2 1/2 years and they are small and light enough I almost always carry them on the bike for that unplanned cold snap or thunderstorm...

Ditto.... I ride in ski pants and they are made to go over boots.

If you can find a good deal on some goretex, get that. The breathabilty factor is worth the extra $$. Otherwise you'll get drenched with sweat.

I loved the pants, but they were about 6-8" too LONG, waist was fine, and granted I'm only 5'9", but I'd of needed about 6-8" long legs for these!! :cry:

Also you may wish to look at Carhart overalls made for fishermen. These things seem to be made of iron & you can get knee pads for them too. I got mine at a commercial fisherman's outlet. They seem to be water and wind proof. Imagine what a commercial fisherman faces in winter and it makes us look like wusses all.

      Hey all, 
      I'm looking at buying a 2004 Suzuki DRZ400EK or at least I think it's an EK according to Vin lookup websites, but it does not appear to have a kickstarter. I was told the bike was owned by a motorcycle dealer and that it has a current green sticker, and a California license plate but has not been registered for the streets since 2011. I want this as a dual sport but am not clear if the fact that it already has a plate means I am good to register it or if maybe they took away the ability to register it after it was plated, California loves to do that kind of stuff. Since the bike was owned by a dealer I would think they were up on the latest regulations in California, but who knows. Can anyone add any insight as to what I should look for on the bike itself like the carburetor, model numbers etc? Or do I just try my luck at the DMV?

      Hi,
      I have a 2003 DRZ (actually a KLX400) and the head tube bearings are shot.  I ordered a new set to install but I'm wondering if anyone has any recommendations on other parts I should replace while I have the front disassembled.  I was thinking about new rubber fork protectors, but are there other things that wear out on the DRZ front ends that you can only get to when disassambled?
      I also broke off a replacement key that I got for the steering lock.  I must have been made of cheap pot-metal.  Should I just remove the whole lock mechanism?
      Any tips or tricks for getting the old bearings out and the new ones in would be welcome!
      Thanks!

      Hey Guys,
      I recently bought a 2003 DRZ400S and thought it would be a good idea to check the valves clearance etc . I timed the engine on TDC with the magneto mark aligned as per the manual but I find the cam timing slightly odd. The arrows pointing upward are on the 1st and 15th pin as they should but with the magneto timing mark aligned they are not perfectly straight. Same goes for the arrows that should be parallel to the cylinder head casing. Is this normal or should they be absolutely perfect ?
