How do you measure motorcycle trousers?
Motorcycle trousers are designed to sit higher than everyday trousers. Standing straight up, measure from your waist (i.e ‘belly button’ as above) down to the centre of your ankle. Measure from the lowest point between your legs to the centre of your ankle. It’s easy to find the glove size to fit you.
