  1. For long distance I've been known to wear rowing shorts. Not bike
    shorts because I find the pad uncomfortable.

    HEre's an alternative - - specifically
    made for motorcycle riding.

    About the same price as good quality bike shorts, a bit more expensive
    than rowing shorts.

  2. I hope that you will wear a pair of jeans over them

    for modesty of coarse

    Hi Zebee.

    I haven't tried rowing shorts, since I had never heard of them.

    I do use the bike nix, and like them.

    These yankee things, any guesses what they are made of?

    The bike nix, because of being lycra, are nice and slippery inside leathers.

    THey are similar to bike shorts although not usually as much lycra so
    not as slippery. They also tend to be shorter in the leg.
    No idea... you'd have to ask them. I just saw them recommended by a
    recumbent rider as an alternative to bike nix because they didn't have
    the nappy pad.

    I use bike knicks on long rides, and I have heard greater things about
    the LDrider shorts but I won't be trying them until they offer some more
    realistic shipping to Australia. I can get 4 tyres shipped to Australia
    for less than $US100 and LDRider charge over $US30 to ship a 168gram
    pair of jocks. *Boggle*

    Hmmmm - I've used my bike knicks as well, and like the pad - a bit of
    extra comfort, same as on the treadly!

    I don't need it on my treadly! Not owning a wedgie...

    (Well I do, but don't ride it far enough in any one trip to need the

    The Noggie's seat doesn't even need a sheepskin, my other bikes don't
    have narrow seats that require padding *there*.

    (The Devil's seat is best Italian marble, but again the nappy pad's
    not in the right place to help there.)

    Besides, the pad is always handy when some idiot driver scares the shit out
    of you
