Red face What's with Chaps?

I guess I just don't get it, but I'm sure some on this site can enlighten me regarding the proliferation of CHAPS.

1) They don't look warm
2) they don't look protective
3) they don't look SUPPORTIVE.
4) they dont look cool ( i guess that's subjective)
5) they don't look elegant
6) they bug me.

Help, Please. Maybe I'm just missing the point.

Well, when it's all you've got and it's time to ride - you ride with what you've got.

Maybe Santa will bring me a set of nice textile pants with CE armor in 'em.

None of the above matters. It's just part of the uniform.

Chaps are better than plain jeans for wind/cold, but are nowhere near as comfortable or protective as proper riding gear.

But again, it's part of "the look" just the same as acres of chrome or handlebars above your head.

And no, I don't "get it" either. And I'm OK with that.

Some people see the gas tank as half empty. Some see it as half full. All I care is that I know where the next tankful is coming from...

Chaps

1) They are warm and block the wind
2) Other than my crotch in a rain storm I stay dry.
3) I am not a poser and don't give a shit about what others think about how I look or what gear I wear!!!
4) My wife looks great in them

back when chaps were made from thick leather (I still have a pair) they actually did the job well enough to help keep you warm and protection was fin with them, unless of course you slid on your rear

Leather is still the top choice for protection among racers which in itself should say how much better protection it is than textiles (but not for long IMHO)

and they do look cool on some

who is looking for elegance? I'm just looking

My Br.....oopos never mind.........
If wore by the proper gal they do not need to be supportive

I think some riders/passengers wear chaps for the same reason that most people wear Cowboy hats. Fashion. The benefits of wearing chaps are merely coincidental. It's "the look"...nothing more.

But we can always count on Dave Hog to rationalize the argument with a little soft porn.

Talking Whats with Chaps?

I don't wear them because they're cool. I wear them because I can't find a set of textile pants/overpants that come in a waist size of 54! I would much prefer to have a good set of textile overpants but I haven't been able to find any with a waist bigger than 48.

Guess I have to loose 6 inches of waist to "fit in" with your conception of how a cyclist needs to look!

No textile has more abrasion resistance than comp grade leather. That why mc racing suits are made from it.
Fashion grade leather is about as useless as tits on a boarhog.
What the retards don't get is that for the price of a 1sqin skin graft you can have the whole shebang custom made to your specs.
My Chaps are made from 12 oz tool grade leather, weigh in at about 15lbs.
They cut the wind off to nothing so your body heat stays in.
Cold weather (Below 20) I would just pull the sheep skin tail from over the tank and tuck it into the belt of chaps in the front.
They were made at the leather shop in 1992 and should last my lifetime, a friend is wearing them this winter.
If they bug you, maybe you should quit worrying about what someone else is doing and go ride your bike.

Cool

I love my Chaps. Had the same pair made by "purple Hog Leathers" of heavy black leather since early 80's!! I've worn them all this time - They keep my legs warm and provide superior protection over jeans alone.
Granted, they are not as protective as my new armored textile pants but they are easy to put on and take off and feel good to wear. I feel it is part of my ATGATT. The single shortcoming is no Butt coverage...

The Posers wear them in the summer which makes no sense to me when it is very hot out. That and "Fingerless Gloves".....

All in all, I prefer leather chaps...does anyone make "armored" chaps? Now that would be great!

Not sure if I care that the arse end is uncovered...

You know.... come to think of it.... when you put it that way....
maybe I could come to appreciate the finer points/advantages of chaps/waders etc.

I still don't think I'll wear them any time soon, but will definately no be saying they are not cool/elegant.

Stipulating to all of the previous answers, I'll just add that it seems to be tradition: Riding a cruiser? You're probably wearing chaps and leather jacket (if any), as opposed to newer/lighter/rainproof textile gear.

Saw a grand total of 1 HD rider out of 200+ in last week's toy run who had textile gear on. Whatever floats your boat, but it seems to be part of a uniform, as someone already said.

Wink I wear chaps

Riding motorcycles I wear my "Stitch".

Logging I wear chaps. Functional and very stylish IMO.

Are there other kinds of chaps?

Oh, yeah... cowboys.

Nice crotch.

Chap etiquette:
Wearing chaps while riding western on a cutting horse: Okay
While chainsawing: Okay
Riding a V-twin motorcycle, especially one with loud pipes to further call attention to one's self: Okay
Riding a BMW motorcyle: No. This is a faux pas, like chewing with your mouth open or farting in public. Generally frowned upon.

Chaps

I ride my BMW's with chaps and still don't care what other people think about it. And I don't use words like "faux pas" or whatever that was, especially when discussing motorcycling.

Don't mistake the leather chaps for the kangaroo hide that all of the racing suits are made out of. Kangaroo is twice as good as the BEST leather and the crappy leather that 99% of the gear that you see is made from is now where near the best...

Might be frowned on by the pink team, but who cares.
I love to fart in public crowded movies or elevators are the best, don't be greedy learn to share
Then again since the human body on average produces enough gas for 14 farts a day, anyone that acts like they don't fart is a phoney.

After a long day on the road and then having a few cold ones you really appreciate the way the chaps are cut. I'm sure they were designed by a beer drinker......I have had mine for 15 years, worn in snow, sleet, hail, rain, heat and cold. Love um!

Reasons to wear chaps.....


#1. Chicks dig 'em.

Fuggit, I don't need any more reasons...............





True story...
A few years back I rode a bike to a party 30 mi. or so away, so I geared up.
Black leather jacket, chaps, boots, etc.

When I rang the door bell the dog came running and upon seeing me, went batshit. My friend came to answer the door and the hostess came to restrain the dog.
My friend laughed and said, " The dog saw the leather and thinks you're a chewtoy..."

The hostess, who I had not met before peers over my friends shoulder at me, raises eybrows, and says, in a low voice,

"Yeah... I was thinkin' the saaaame thingggg."

My friend laughed and said, " The dog saw the leather and thinks you're a chewtoy..."

The hostess, who I had not met before peers over my friends shoulder at me, raises eybrows, and says, in a low voice,

"Yeah... I was thinkin' the saaaame thingggg."

True story...
A few years back I rode a bike to a party 30 mi. or so away, so I geared up.
Black leather jacket, chaps, boots, etc.

When I rang the door bell the dog came running and upon seeing me, went batshit. My friend came to answer the door and the hostess came to restrain the dog.
My friend laughed and said, " The dog saw the leather and thinks you're a chewtoy..."

The hostess, who I had not met before peers over my friends shoulder at me, raises eybrows, and says, in a low voice,

"Yeah... I was thinkin' the saaaame thingggg."
well that's it then! we have a winner!
