Alright, Let's Talk About Underwear...
What kind(s) of skivvies do you wear for long distance rides? Hey, I'm desperate!
Despite more than 30 years of motorcycle riding, and an eagerness to try all things new and comfrotable, I have yet to find the perfect underwear for long motorcycle rides.
Some bunch up, some get soaking wet, some cut into the leg joint area, some seem to help microbes find a place to stay. Dang it!
I wore some padded bicycle shorts under my jeans on a motorcycle ride once. It felt like I was wearing a diaper, and I think people were watching my behind when I walked out of the gas station.
I've gone commando a few times, and it wasn't bad, buty my wife is mortified that if we have an accident and are taken to a hospital, the people in the ER will find out that I'm not wearing anything under my motorcycle pants. It's her Catholic upbringing, I'm pretty sure.
I actually tried runners tights once, and it felt like I was going to slide out of my jeans at every stop light.
I wore some Nike compression shorts once, the ones I wear under my workout shorts at the gym. They felt okay for a while, but they also compress everything, especially the things I least want compressed on a ride.
So what works for you?
