where do I find low-rise leather pants?

looking into buying some leathers, but the regular fit leather pants look like crap. I know I know, fashion isnt everything ( I always wear my gear), but like to look nice too

Have you tried places at the mall?

If you are talking proper riding gear... I'm not sure it can be both. Icon or Power Trip might be your best bets.

The only thing with low-rise is that it leaves the lower back exposed. One time I rode in low-rise jeans and my A* jacket and I had a 2" area across my lower back with a bad sunburn - I could only imagine if I had gone down.

I'm with Pippi on that one, if you butt/lower back aint covered, literally, you run the risk of serious rash if you go down...

that said, the the best pants I have seen that are remotely fashionable are the Joe Rocket Trixie and the Icon Bombshell...I have the trixie's and they are higher than I wear my jeans typically but are much lower than the other riding pants I have seen out there that look like 80's style under your armpits high

I should be getting the Icon Bombshell pants this week and will be able to tell you about those later!!!

First of all, wow... I mean welcome... I don't know where you can get low rise leather pants but when you find them- I think I speak for all of us when I say, we'd really appreciate a pic.

gear companies are slowly coming around to designing for us ladies. however, there is still a long way to go. finding decent riding boots that aren't the full-on race ones is quite a challenge. and i'd also like to see some draggin' jeans in a more normal denim color, not that freakish blue they call denim.

it must be difficult designing with safety and fashion in mind.

when you turn your bike on, does it return the favor?

I have a permanently tanned crescent for the little bitty section between my jacket and my jeans, from the times I didn't secure my jacket loops to my belt.

Moreso than just your a$$ gettin' rashed, think about this: lowrise jeans/pants sit at your widest point... meaning, they come off really easy (think about it... pants that fit at the waist have to be unbuttoned/unzipped before you can take them off... pants that fit at the hip can oftentimes slide right off without being undone)... Translate this to a pavement slide, and you could feasibly lose your leathers altogether in the event of a slide... it won't just be your bum gettin' rashed.

Ok Ouch Nee...

personally... the only way you may be able to get what you're lookin for it to pick out some leathers that you like... and get them tailored.... and not by your run-of-the-mill dry cleaners.... and then hopefully you would only wear them to strut your stuff and not on real rides....
