Chaps work to cut the wind really well and also help save your shins from the rocks and gravel that like to target windshields and motorcyclists on highways.
They also do a pretty good job of holding in heat once you get them warmed up. Unfortunately that also means they do a god job of transferring cold too so I always try to find chaps with removeable liners. If they get cold on you try putting another layer between them and your pants; a couple of strips of wool or flannel over the front of your thighs works well.
