w2 4 dirt boots - pants to fit?

HI folks despite the misleading title this is not about boots! I have recently purchased a pair of W2 4 dirt boots and they are great, very comfy etc. However they are very wide at the top and none of the motorcycle pants I have will fit over the top as the bottoms are not wide enough (Bikers gear and Force rider). Has any one got a pair of these and what trousers do you wear with them? I feel I cannot justify splashing out £150+ on a pair of draggin jeans that I know will fit.

Thanks in advance

GM

Try the Rev'it range. I wear Rev'it Factor 2 (now superseded by Factor 3, I think), they fit perfectly over the top of my W2 boots.

Membership - help keep us going!

Horizons Unlimited is not a big multi-national company, just two people who love motorcycle travel and have grown what started as a hobby in 1997 into a full time job (usually 8-10 hours per day and 7 days a week) and a labour of love. To keep it going and a roof over our heads, we run events all over the world with the help of volunteers; we sell inspirational and informative DVDs; we have a few selected advertisers; and we make a small amount from memberships.

You don't have to be a Member to come to an HU meeting, access the website, or ask questions on the HUBB. What you get for your membership contribution is our sincere gratitude, good karma and knowing that you're helping to keep the motorcycle travel dream alive. Contributing Members and Gold Members do get additional features on the HUBB. Here's a list of all the Member benefits on the HUBB.
