When you buy a pair of motorcycle pants, you often just quickly grab the same size as whatever your jeans are. This isn’t really the right way to do it, though. When you sit down on your motorcycle, the pants are going to come up a little bit. This will mess up the placement of the knee padding. For that reason, you actually want to get a pair of pants that are a hair longer than what you’re used to. Anthony on YouTube will explain that it is better to have them be longer than shorter. See his video for a further explanation.
