As was mentioned above, check out the Klim pants, they have inside the boot, which I prefer, but also include pockets, which I also wanted. They are the only brand I found that had pockets on inside boot style pants. I just picked up a pair a few weeks ago. Haven't even had a chance to try them out yet.

Any further opinions on this? I like the Klim Mojave (outtie with pockets) and Dakar, looking at others too...

I got the Dakars on a bunch of recommendations and love them.

I've got the Dakars as well and have used them both inside and outside the boot. They are designed for outside the boot but fit inside ok.

rockymountainatvmc doesn't have the Dakar in my size, and only a blue Mojave in a size that I think might fit me. I'm going to try it.

Tried my Mojave pants yesterday, they worked pretty well. I liked the pockets low on my thigh, it was handy for accessing the maps and camera(s). However there was a problem. There is leather on the inner part of the pant, but apparently not enough. I burned through the nylon within an inch of the edge of the leather. I was worried about that because my boots have quite a bit of wear on them from rubbing against the bike/exhaust on the right side. So I'll either need to reinforce the pants with extra leather or try to nurse them until I can figure out a better pant.

Dang. Was worried about that.

Would an exhaust heat shield solve your problem?

Hm, maybe. I'll have to look into that.

EDIT: I'm actually liking this one a lot. Hopefully he still makes this style, this pic is from last year and he's updated the look since then:

Who is the "he" that makes that heat shield? That looks like the same bike as mine (07 450EXC) and I hadn't really noticed an issue with the exhaust burning anything, but after you posted that pic I looked at mine and it does show some signs of things being burned onto it. That's a cool looking part, I may consider getting one.
