Keeping warm
« on: December 15, 2015, 09:37:42 pm »
For anyone riding through the winter.....this will keep your legs warm and stop the cold air blowing up your trousers.
Yes you will look like a Dork, but at least you'll be a warm Dork.
Elasticated ankle straps from the Poundshop. Fasten 2 together to make longer.  Its 100% effective.
Keep warm for only four quid !!

The High Street chain of shops in the UK, almost every town has one.
Everything on sale for a quid, not sure if they have them in France.

Thanks Blazer, I know the concept it seems that in France we don't have that many of them, and certainly not in almost every town. I'll keep my eyes open.

That should work nicely.

My winter overpants has a velcro adjusting strap to cinch it tight.  Also it came with a liner that has an elastic band at the bottom, but it doesn't get cold enough here to warrant putting on the liner, especially now that I got the TTSE.

A lot of the Outdoor/Ski-type pants have an inner elasticated band around the ankle, ..I think it's called a snow catcher,....its a shame there's nothing like that on motorcycle pants.....there's a definite need for something like that.
The black walking trousers that Aldi sometimes sell have a similar band around the ankle, ..and its connected with a zip, allowing you to take it off if necessary.....just wish they were made a bit more "heavy duty"

I use some walking gaiters.  They also have a clip on the bottom to kèep them pulled low.

I've never experienced this wind - must be special Euro Wind from that side of the pond -  :745:

PS there are MC Pants that have this inner material / band,, my Klim Badlands Pant has it...mind you I never tuck in into my boots anyhow... never had the reason to even at pretty cold temps for hours..
