Why is it so difficult to find a good pair of pants!!!!!. It wasn't that difficult to find comfortable helmet, gloves, boots, and jacket. Granted I have two gloves (warm and cold weather), and three jackets (Joe Rocket mesh, Motoport mesh, and an Aerostitch Darien Jacket). I've yet to be able to try on a pair of pants that are comfortable.
I had a pair of Joe Rocket Alter Ego pants, and I currently have a pair of Motoport airmesh kevlar pants. The knees seem to be the biggest problem for me. The knee armor tends to put too much pressure on my knee, which after a few hours ride is unbearable. Granted I'm on the tall side at 6'1" with long legs. With the Alter Ego Pants, I removed the knee armor. They were also too short (and they were the long version as well), so I got rid of them. I had the Motoports custom made to make sure the knee armor was in the proper location. While they proved to be better (I even cut down the knee armor slightly for the best possible fit), I still have problems with my knees.
As I sit here debating on the next course of action, I wonder why most pants are overpants (excluding leather pants)? They are bulky and tolerable at best. I would like to find a pair of pants that are not (I've tried the BMW pants with no success) uncomfortable to wear.
Sorry, I just needed to vent. Help me feel a little by telling me what article of clothing/gear was the most difficult to locate a proper fitting item? Also, what was the remedy?
