I commute to work on my bike. I wear a textile suit over my work clothes. Keeps me clean, and it's waterproof in case it rains.

But the pic of the bike in your sig pic has lots of luggage space. Why not just keep a pair of pants in the top box and change when you get to where are going?

Or just wear overtrousers like others have said.....

Look at the Motoport Air Mesh Kevlar over pants. I wore those over dress slacks, when I wasn't commuting to my home office (Locker)

Another vote for a one piece Aerostich Roadcrafter. 15 seconds off or on. Faster than separate jackets and pants (or chaps). You can even get them all black if you insist.

On your way to work wear your pants inside out, change to outside out when you get to work. The outside will be clean.
you're welcome.

If he goes commando, the skid marks will show after he switches.

On second thought, it might be kind of fun walking around the office with skid marks showing.

Our dress code says "no blue jeans", so I compromised, I wear black jeans. No issues so far and it's been 5 years. LOL.
