So I received my Yamaha Star Drifter pants at the office today - can't wait to try them on at home tonight. Seems like the ticket for wearing shorts on a hot day and staying protected on the bike for highway rides.
But it adds to the collection-
Like the jacket, you end up at your destination with a whole pile of extra clothing - boots, jacket, pants, helmet, gloves... maybe you can keep your sunglasses on if you are staying outside, but otherwise you've got a laundry basket worth of extra clothing to park with your bike.
If engineers can get us to the moon, surely they can develop ways we can keep our gear with our motorcycles without having an actual armoire strapped to the cargo rack on the bike!
I wish there was something like a space bag that could compress down to something that could be stored in a tiny place built into the bike, but expand into a waterproof duffel bag sized thing to keep pants, jacket, boots, helmet in - that could lock to the bike so you could leave it fairly securely - maybe even at the mall.
And realistically - I'm sure this actually does discourage people from wearing protective gear! This doesn't seem outside the realm of engineering, and I can't imagine I'm the first to want something like this. Does anything like this exist?
Dare to dream, right?
