Got my boots...Advice on pants?

Thank you guys for all the input on the boots. Went with the Sidi Vertigo. Now last thing I need is a good pair of riding pants, with puck. Ideally something that can Zip with my Alpinestar gp plus perforated leather jacket. I will be doing a lot of weekend canyon rides and will probably do 1 or 2 day intro track days. Will upgrade all gear when I eventually go full track. Price no more than $300/400. Any pants you guys swear by?

Thank you!

I would stick to A* only because I think that is the only way that it will zip into your jacket. Check out sportbiketrackgear.com and see what they have.

I would suggest giving them a call once you pick something to see if it will zip up to what you have...they are awesome people to deal with.

I believe A* zipper has a lot smaller teeth than most other bands. If you get another band you'll have to have the correct mating zipper sown on.

Just go with the a* pants. They should work with your jacket (call and verify first) and are generally in the price range you are looking for.

2006 zx6r (track bike)
