These leggings are my go to riding pants. They’re super comfortable and fit amazingly well. I normally wear skinny jeans or leggings so they work well for the style that I like. An added bonus is the high waist on these. I’m long waisted and these come up to my belly button and
get rid of my muffin top hold everything in. I bought these about a year ago and they’ve seen roughly 15,000km and they are still the same deep black colour that they were when I bought them. I have another brand of riding leggings that I never wear because the colour really faded to this brown-grey that is just gross. They also don’t fit as well as these so they’re somewhere in the back of my closet now.
Keep in mind that these leggings are completely lined with Aramid so they are thicker than regular pants making them a little warm for the hot summer days. That being said, because of that lining they are designed for maximum abrasion resistance; which is the reason we are buying motorcycle pants/jeans in the first place. As an added layer of protection these pants have internal, velcro free, pockets to add armour. Although they come with knee armour I removed it and it’s sat in a bin since I purchased these pants. The bottom of the legs stretch enough that you can wear them overtop your boots if you choose. Looking at the Oxford site they mention that you can wear these under other pants – if you’re planning to wear them under something the top pants would need to be pretty baggy.

I grew up in small town Ontario so of course there were a couple of motorcycles in the drive house. The only problem was that I didn’t ride them I was only a passenger.
It wasn’t until I met me husband, Andy, that I spent any real time on a bike. We had a bike (Yamaha XJ750) before the kids arrived. However, after the kids came along we just didn’t have time to ride anymore so we sold it. There’s nothing worse than a bike sitting around and not being ridden!
Fast forward twenty years and we were once again cruising around on two wheels. Almost five years later and the only thing that’s changed is I now ride my own bike. If only I had understood how awesome it was to ride my own bike I would have done this years ago.
