I wear the Icon Recons almost everytime I ride, except for the one day I crash! I am not with stupid, I am stupid. But back to the pants - I have not "road tested" them yet as in crashed in them but I think they are great pants - everything except the zipper that constantly falls down but then again easy access for this old skool pimp cuz pimpin' ain't easy but it's necessary.. As far as the draggins I did see them at Mid-Ohio and they looked and felt awesome - I was going to try a pair on but since I rode down there and was already overpacked I decided not to because if I bought them I would have to cart them or my recons. They did have a "demo" pair that some jackass slid down the freeway on his ass and they appear to be very effective - I am buying a pair over winter to try - I would recommend that you buy a pair of Draggins or Icons. Before you do get me a Johnnie Walker neat - DO IT!

They had a big tent next to us at Road Atlanta with said "demo" pair hanging for all to see. Impressive for sure, and unquestionably better than Levis.

Personally I'd rather slip on actual riding pants, but I wouldn't mind riding in a pair; might change my mind.

I'd be very interested in knowing how any of these work out in real life. I've been eyeing up the Icon Recons http://www.newenough.com/icon_recon_pants_page.htm and the Joe Rocket Steel jeans http://www.newenough.com/joe_rocket_...jeans_page.htm.

the icons and draggin jeans are definately more affordable at this point for me..I'd like to have a pair or 2 of these for sure by atleast spring...leathers would be great, but at the very least, these.

My links above show the Icons costing the same as the Rockets ($80) but the Rockets are currently on sale for $65.

The prices look ok. I am going to try to get a pair or 2 for x-mas.

Hey Gas Man..do you wear your leathers all the time? Every time you ride or what??
