its starting to get cold outside, and i need an extra layer on my legs, something easy to take off when i get to work. the sales man i talked to at CycleGear initially recommended leather chaps, but changed his mind when i said i rode a sport bike, and suggested overpants instead.

Get overpants for the winter. I have a pair of chaps that worked fine on the sport bike and the cruiser, but the problem with them is your ass still gets cold and can be uncomfortable. I have a pair of snowmobile pants for chilly days, then a full one piece snowmobile suit for cold days (less than 40 degrees outside).

Overpants for sure. Riding jeans, when riding in cold, are of course just like regular jeans... Useless. Won't keep you warm. Overpants with a liner will keep ya warmer for sure. I wear tourmaster overpants, which don't have a liner, but put on some thermals and regular pants and I'm good to go. Anything over about 60, though, and they're too warm so ill switch to the alpinestars oxygen air overpants instead.
