Ever wondered how will your jeans protect you in the unfortunate case that you should come off your bike? Well, this video gives the perfect answer, and it is... cue drums rolling... there's no protection whatsoever!
That is, because despite your false impression that denim is a really tough fabric, casual jeans will only last for half a second when scraping against the asphalt.

That's why special riding jeans come with kevlar reinforcement and have hip and knee protectors. The reinforced cotton, kevlar and polyester combination results in a special fabric with enhanced resistance to abrasion and which cam shield your flesh for a longer time as you slow down sliding on the road.

Now, riding with casual clothes is a risk most motorcyclists should be aware of and mind their riding so that the hour of need is delayed as much as possible or avoided altogether.
