well now, that just depends on the boots in question.
Papa you should recognize these, these are right out of the UK, I've since sold them and they're currently being
worn as they should by a Triumph cafe pal of mine who lusted after them.
The Brits make a fine pair of boots.

Glad I came across this.   I commute with textile pants and touring leather boots.   Thought myself old fashion to wear my pants over my boots.

Exactly...

Which boots, which pants, on road or off, commuting or out riding, Ginger or Mary Anne?

Street clothes under gear for commuting, in light touring boots is about the only time I tuck in, makes getting over pants on simpler.

If you tuck your pants in, your boots will fill with water in the rain.

I don't have that problem. None of my gear is waterproof. One suit is water resistant. I like to wear mesh gear in the summer so I carry rain gear which goes over my gear.

It would work fine. You'd just get arrested for indecent exposure.

Like everyone else, leathers in textiles and jeans out, unless it's raining, then I tuck my jeans into my Combat Tour's and leave the rain pants out, secured by velcro. That stops my jeans from wicking water halfway up my leg inside my rain pants..

Generally in as my Roadcrafter is about an inch shorter than my jeans. Since it rains so much here if I don't I end up wit the last inch of my jeans all soggy and dirty at work...

Easy enough to tuck into the CBT Lt's..

Track leathers in, everything else out. I'm far from a fashionista (some of you have witnessed my lack of style in person), but my wife occasionally watches the E! channel in the bedroom, and tucking your pants into your boots - especially jeans ( ) - that would be heavily criticized on fashion police.  Really.

Lol, I thought I recognized the title of this thread!  Way to resurrect it, haha!


So an update from me:  I ride a hotter bike now, so I've thus started wearing shorter boots almost year-round.  This makes pants un-tuckable, so I have pants on the outside.  About the only time I'm still wearing the tall Sidi On-Roads (and tucking pants in) is when I'm riding on a cold day, or riding a dual sport.

Of course, right now I'm taking a break to have some surgeries done, and not riding anything at all for a while.

For street riding my pants are not tucked in. For dual sporting I wear "in the boot" pants with my MX boots.

Leathers tucked.  
Winter textiles untucked.  
I used to have some Meshtex pants that I tucked, but I sold them and wear perf'ed leathers now.  
On the occasion that I wear jeans putting around town, they are untucked.  They are snug enough they won't flap.  They wouldn't flap much anyway at 25-35 mph small town speeds.

Top layer out.  My jeans cuffs are longer than my overpants so I tuck the jeans in my boots when I'm wearing full gear (which is most of the time)
