First pair of pants

Hey everyone,

I've been more of a lurker than a poster and have been examining all types of motorcycles before deciding on a bike.

Well, today I will be picking up a 2008 Kawasaki Ninja 250r with just over 1k miles on it.

That being said, the rest of my gear I have picked out including helmet, gloves, jacket, and boots. I still need help deciding on pants.

I am a firm believer in wearing full gear when riding. I want something that will be comfy, not too warm/cold for temps between 50-95 degrees Fahrenheit, and will provide impact and abrasion protection if I go down? I was first looking at the jean type pants but maybe you all had better ideas? My budget is $200.

What kind of pants would be best for me?

I appreciate your help!

Jeans are worthless, no matter what they are made of. That's not much to spend on pants, start at webbikeworld and read reviews.

I suggest looking at the used market.

Maybe a pair of Dariens?

I am taking the advice of all those people that told me, "Hey kid, why don't you go play in traffic!"
