What pants do you wear while riding?

I'm looking to buy some good riding pants... Looking at some SHIFT pants to zip onto my SHIFT jacket. I found this pic on the web and am posting it as a reminder to how tough jeans are! OUCH...... and for Gods' sake wear a damn jacket and some good boots too!!!! Don't be a tough guy!!!!

even in the summer I don't think I could ride with shorts in which I see about 90% of the riders do around here do. His road rash could've been alot worse considering he did'nt have any gear on.

When I'm puttin' around town, I'm a jeans type of guy. On long cruises, and messin' around, I wear a textile pant with armor.

Although I have two pairs of riding pants I wear jeans 95% of the time. Jeans keep me a little cooler on and off the bike, especially with all the 90+ degree days there's been so far. Commonly the air is foggy with humidity as well so I've been considering wearing shorts on the bike, despite how super squidly it is.
