Leather Pants

What's the most comfortable leather pants you guys have ever owned? Something that doesn't limit your movement and won't hurt on really long rides. I might be doing the Iron Butt before the end of this year (hopefully)on my R1 and I want protection (a must) and comfort. Will consider perforated one, too. Thanks.

I got the Teknic chicane's too. They are very supple leather.

My thick leather First Gear pants feel like I'm wearing jeans. Only bad thing-there's no pockets.

Having never owned any leather pants, I am completely useless... However, these people might be able to help...

I have teknic chicanes. For the price, they can't be beat. Good quality pants.

They're the only ones I've owned, tho, so

I'll use the 2 pc on track days too...
The jacket has 3 pockets, so that's where house keys and cell phone go.

I used my 2pc at a track day it was fine.

And I only put the phone in that little pocket when I've got a bunch of stuff on me (wallet, keys, camera, kickstand plate, etc.)
