Default Pant Leg Ride Up

Here's a goof question........WHY is it only the left pant leg rides up over my (work)boot when I ride and not the right pant leg? I thought maybe it's because of using the shifter, but you use the foot brake too and it just does not seem to do it on the right side. Come on, anyone else run into this or am I now starting to believe I have one leg longer than the other (did I just say that?!)? This is of course when using the floor boards.
Told ya it was a goof question.

.......and as you're riding you reach down and pull the cuff back over your boot. Then you look down and it's back over again!! WTF?!
I think I need velcro................

I don't fight it. I kick my feet up on the highway pegs and enjoy the breeze. I do occasionally hop off the bike at the destination and forget to roll them back down too. Oh well. I gave up on being cool a long time ago.

the rotational vortex of the rotor turning at half the speed of the rear tire creates a turbulence that reverberates off the down force from the ft fender causing a severe uplift off the front of the primary, seeking the low pressure area within the draft of the left pantleg.







I got nothing!!

It's always my right leg. That is where I keep my gun so it bothers me...

I always check when I see a cop just so I don't have to explain.

Had a similar issue a while back, but got longer pants and the problem went away. You could always get some of these if it's really bothering you.

Can't say I've had the problem but there again my riding jeans are 2" longer than my other jeans, in your case it's probably because your right leg is pressing against the AC so stoping it riding up.
