Re: Draggin Jeans anyone?

I know a few people who have them. Some have "tested them out" and are very happy, other have "tested them out" and found that they fell apart. I'm not sur eof the specifics of the various "tests" but I'm guessing it really depends on how hard you come off...

they do look pretty good, and appear well made though. I am going to buy a pair for my city commuting.

Z...

You're f%#&king up my Chi...

Re: Draggin Jeans anyone?

Just wear a pair of shorts and a t-shirt if you really want to look cool. All the big squids are doing it.

Are you being self-conscious again? Do you think that the world revolves around only you?


What's the old saying? "The guilty dog barks first."




Lighten up X. I have an odd sense of humor.

A few months ago I saw a guy pull up on his new Kwak, complete with the huge cardboard temporary license plate.

He had on a helmet, and nicely color-matched gloves and leather jacket.

......somehow he thought they looked cool with the shorts and low-top sneakers he had on.

I prefer the untied high-tops with the laces dancing around the chain and sprockets look.

My wife thought I had lost my mind when I started laughing over the visual image in my mind.

Must be the same guy as above.

X, have you been out riding with Phobe again? Don't you know that those French Canuks are a bad influence?

Re: Draggin Jeans anyone?

Here's what they look like after a 30-40mph lowside, dude basically slid on his belly :

Right knee wore through the kevlar in two spots. Hand behind for pic, not actual knee, which was damaged in crash.


Key Scrape, right pocket.


Inner thigh above right knee.


Front left thigh, kevlar seat seen in rear unaffected by belly slide:
