    Youth Motorcycle Gear

    My son finally indicated he'd like to go out on a ride with me. Yeah! I'm looking forward to some good father-son bonding on the bike. While I was lucky to find a good used jacket for him on craigslist, I'm at a loss of where to find some good pants. Most gear I find are for dirt and not street. Any suggestions? FYI, he's about 5'2"-5'3" and on the skinny side. if that helps.

    Don't they make "draggin" jeans or something like that? They're probably somewhere between regular jeans and a full armored set of pants. Maybe they have some Kevlar woven into the material.

    Revzilla & Motosport (both multibrand), Revit (expensive/good), Icon (cheaper/ok) are a few good choices.
