I am fine for a short ride wearing jeans but on a longer ride the chaffing gets to be unbearable. I was looking at pants and they are not cheap. I have seen some at the BMW dealership and I am sure I can get some better priced and better quality then offered there. So, what do you guys recommend? Lots of manufacturers out there, any to stay away from or what to look for? I do 5-6 hour rides every couple of weeks and need something comfortable. I also wear chaps for protection; would they still be required with riding pants?
