Hello All,

Im in need of some new gloves for the upcoming season. Does anyone have any under $100 suggestions? I would prefer some pretty heavy duty ones, with good plam and wrist protection.

Any suggestions (Preferably with link)

Matt

Speaking of Kneedraggers.com, are they the ones who sell the jeans that have kevlar in the seat and in the knees. Does anybody own a pair of these or know anything about them?

Worth the $$$?

If you don't mind green....and obviously, I do not! Check this link


you can get some awesome deals if you aren't picky on color. Let's face it, poseurs match their leathers and bikes.

Green and Red don't go very well together. Unless you are into the year round christmas theme. ( like my neighbors who won't take down their lights)

that's certainly food for thought....here's more

now that my ride has some black in it, my leathers match...i guess when I put the yellow gloves on my passenger, I'm more poseur then her? guess she needs to get her class M soon.

SVBadguy and Rossi.....Poseurs. (especially SVBG) But I dont think SVBG matches his Dual-sport, so i guess when he's off roading he's no longer a poseur.

other poseurs of note:

SteveZX9 and Bambam -- actually these guys are HUGE POSEURS and master

boomboom929, wkdbld, jpvacarro - they dont weigh as much as Steve and bam, so they're only middleweight poseurs, wkdbld is probably a light middleweight poseur.

darkr6... the al cicada theme shrieks poseur

also of interesting note boomboom, wkdbld, jpv and darkr6 combined would probably match Steve and a half in poseur rating

I own a pair of Draggin Jeans and I like them. They are comfortable just like regular jeans. They have kevlar protection in the butt and knees. I bought mine from Manassas Honda for around $90.

that was more of a "tongue in cheek" statement Eduardo. I don't care how you look as long as you are wearing ride appropriate gear. Hell, I wear jeans sometimes if the ride is laid back. Good job working in the track comment though. I mean.. how can joke around with you guys being posuers if you ride on the track?

You wear jeans if the ride is laid back enough?

I guess I better start looking for full race leathers for the street now?[/quote]

yup. Also depends on where I am going. Semi-local backroads at a relaxed pace.....jeans. I wear leathers too. Just not all of the time.
