    Ouch What pants?

    Just dropped my 200 in gravel. My right forearm took a beating. No, I wasn't wearing what I should have been wearing. So, for that I am ordering Acerbis Cosmo Body Armor. Now, just what kind of pants might be recommended for offroad use? Got the head gear, goggles, boots and gloves. Oh and more importantly, the 200 didn't suffer any injuries. The handguards did their job.

    Always wear protective gear. Their are Mesh Jackets that are OK into the mid+ 80's. It will be a bit less painful when S... happens. Though these jackets aren't as good as a full covered one. But then the HEAT. Vents or not.

    Just give me a minute while I collect my thoughts. They're around here somewhere. Maybe!

    For my knees I went to Lowes and bought some nice velcro guards. Looks like they would work but I've not had to try them out. Happy...Happy...Happy!!!

    I'm old school so I stick with leather. Currently wearing Aspinestars pants. Nice thing is they compensate for the TW's hard seat and you can't beat leather for abrasion protection.

    I wear a hot weather jacket from Joe Rocket and Sahara riding pants. I can always layer up underneath if there's a chill, but usually even mild weather I heat up working out on the TW200.

    Nobody asked this question. Do you still have the deathwing tire on the front? If you do and want to not fall as much change it out. When I had the stock tire on the front it felt like I was driving on marbles on gravel, very skitery. I have the shinko 241 others have some other good front tires.

    I have a Bilt techo mesh jacket. It works great in 90 degree heat and has some armor in it, plus it has a removable liner for cooler weather. I still need pants and knee pads, plus better boots.

    I have the same jacket. The pants I mentioned above are a great match
