...So, I'm at my local Honda shop (oops, its a PowerSports
shop these days...) trying on some riding pants. After reading up on posts from respected WTN members, and shopping around on the net, I thought I'd try on the FieldSheer 4-season pants...
I HATED how they fit me! really baggy in the thigh & front hip area, but very tight in the waist at the same time....Weird! and I'm not even shaped funny or anything! However, in the spirit of fairness, I convinced the gear guy to let me take a quick spin in the pants.....Here's my real issue...they are VERY SLIPPERY in the seat! I was sliding around like I was buttered up going like hell down a slip-n-slide!
I can see this as a potential benefit if I was sliding friction-free on the asphalt after taking a spill, but damn!
Is this a feature or a flaw? Am I doomed to ride forever in blue jeans, or will I need to save up for some decent leathers? maybe I need to adjust my expectations? Am I the only poor soul having this issue?
Thanks for reading this far...rant complete!
