Motorcycling is undeniably exhilarating, but do you know what’s equally cool? Protecting your legs against surface abrasion. The protection of legs while riding a motorcycle is an area that I feel many riders often overlook. Instead, they simply put on their normal jeans, which I strongly advise against. Unless, of course, you’re up for hearing about my unforgettable mishap—trust me, I learned the hard way.

In the unfortunate event of an accident, wearing proper motorcycle jeans and pants will protect you from significant injuries caused by abrasion. Here are my top picks:
