    Need some help. I've enrolled in a Lee Parks Total Control riding class coming up in July. One of the rules is you cannot wear jeans. Jeans ARE my riding pants. So I need to get a pair of mesh motorcycle riding pants. Looking around the WEB, I see their prices all over the place. Can someone recommend a good brand? I know nothing about riding pants out side of Levi Strauss. I'm looking for a reasonable price in the under $150.00 range. My current riding jeans are 43w/44L. Any help to make my decision easier would be appreciated.

    I usually wear leather overpants on trips. They zip from hip to ankle, ez off/on.
    They are warm in winter, and in summer I wear shorts under them. For less than $100 I think they are a deal. The link also has textile mcy. pants.

    It would be interesting to hear what their policy is on Draggin' Jeans. They're jeans but they have Kevlar reinforcement in the critical impact areas. I wear a pair of these 90% of the time I ride.
