A* Track Pants

My A* Track Pants arrived today!

First impression is very favorable. GP armor, stretch Kevlar panel in the crotch, reflective 3M logos, removable/washable liner, nice knee sliders, etc.

This is my first set of leather pants. They seem to fit pretty well in size 54 along with my size 56 TZ-1 jacket (the two zip together with a full circumference zipper). Length is about right even for 6'3" me. My only real gripe is they feel tight through the knees when on the bike, but I assume this is in part because of the thick armor in that location. I would also assume that, like the jacket, some time spent on the bike will break these garments in and they'll be more comfortable with time.

MAM, here I come!

You think I'm gonna show my face after what you did to me last time?



No, I haven't a clue whose eyes those are. I'm sickened to think about it.

Re: A* Track Pants

I suck at guessing games. I'd rather just break something over your head and make you cough it up.

I'm leaving to go drink a beer and eat some Chinese now...

Ah, O.K. detective. That one should have been easy.
How about He's bad, real bad. You know it?
He's looking at the man in the mirror?
He either wants to thrill you or have you beat it?
Um, he started out life a little black kid and is now an old white woman?

Re: A* Track Pants

Oh I think I can up with a good one with these pics, hehe.....

Chain I'm looking at ordering those as well and I also have the tz1. How does the leather match up with each other pretty close? It looks nice together. Im kinda pissed at A*'s because they dont sell the TZ1 pants separately, jack asses. That TZ1 took a while to break in around the neck area. I actually added some mink oil around the neck to help loosen it up some.

I decided on those track pants once I felt the different armour in them bewteen the bat pants and track pants. What a difference.

Caption for your pic: "Walk like an Egyptian"

Re: A* Track Pants

I just ordered a pair also size 54. What size pants do you wear in us jeans? Just curious, I wear a 38 and hope the 54 is not to tight.

Hey, I just got back from a night out and only now see the hints. I actually drank wine with my Chinese...Peanut Butter Chicken and Mongolian Beef washed down with a nice Merolt. [belch] Anyway, that's disgusting that you'd put MJ's eyeballs on my noggin.

We are no longer friends.
