what are all of you guys using for pants

i need a reasonable priced pair of pants for the track. i am almost to the point of needing pants and need a pair that are reasonably price but stille good. the other part is i dont really know about the sizing.

i am about 195 lbs and 5' 10". i normally wear 38/32 pants.

i am going to a big race in nashville sunday and need them quick also.

Don't they have to zip up to the jacket for the track? Knee sliders?

Any bike that runs over 120mph on my track here needs top and bottom leathers Zipped...if you own a 10R even if you don't know how to drag you will still go over 120mph in a 1/4 mile it's no 600 hard not too.

bottom line depending on your track you need a full suit most times and as posted already that is recommended as well.
