Someone in my "commuting hell" thread recommended stomp grip.

I just wanted to know, how does this stuff affect your pants? I have to wear a suit for work, so I don't want it making the thigh area all shitty on expensive suits.

Any advice would be MUCH APPRECIATED! :)

it wont rip them at all. I have it on my gas tank to hold me for tank wheelies and it does not rip them. The quote you will find on most stunt sites that sell it is "just as grippy as grip tape without ripping holes in your jeans"

Cool. I'll give it a shot.

To the poster 2 posts above:

1. I leave my suit jackets at work and wear pants, business shirt and leather jacket on the bike; and

2. I have no choice but to ride because my ex took the car!

I would suggest leaving your jacket and pants at work and wearing good gear while riding, I always wear my gear to work and change when I get there.
You'll wish you did if you go down in suit pants.

All it'll do is shove your pant legs up into your crotch... lol.

Been riding daily with stomps since '04 no matter what pants the occasion calls for. That being said... the dressers are gonna be riddin' hard after a few red lights and def gonna need an adjustment here and there.

You might consider investing in an Aerostich-type suit that would fit over your business attire or street clothes.

If you wear, for example, a size 48 suit, a size-48 Aerostitch would be designed to fit over your street clothes.

They say you can take it off or slip it on in about 20 seconds, and they provide excellent protection from not only crashes, but also weather.

I use tech spec pads. They are about $42 US + $10 shipping!

About $55 AUD at the current exchange rate. They are not as "abrasive" as stomp grips but still grip well in a full crouch

I know it's off topic, but I can vouch for Aerostich. Super comfortable, comparable to leather protection, waterproof, goes on/off in 20 sec, and I can wear almost anything underneath it. I wear it on road trips, to track days, and in weddings. OK, maybe not weddings. Yet.
