I may take an 800-mile road trip on my bike in December. My good buddy Ron just bought himself a new motorcycle and is coming down to visit me in December and we have tentatively decided I will meet him halfway and ride back with him..
If I do meet him halfway, I’ll need chaps to protect my legs and keep me warm on the ride.
I went to the Hot Leathers website, since I usually buy something from them in Daytona during Bike Week or Biketoberfest. I saw plenty of chaps, but I was unsure what size to buy, so I sent a request into their support department. A humurous woman named Sarah and I exchanged emails and I misunderstood what she was asking me at one point.
We finally got it sorted out, but I can imagine that Sarah at Hot Leathers got a chuckle out of this as I did.
The Email exchange went something like this:
BinaryBiker: I need to buy some chaps for a winter ride but don’t really know what size will fit me.
HotLeathers: is your thigh measurement over a pair of jeans.
BinaryBiker: I am going to wear the chaps over a pair of jeans. I suppose I could go commando underneath but I’m not sure other riders on the road would approve.
HotLeathers: indeed pants underneath the chaps is a good idea!
