This strap is designed to be installed in place of your tank bag when you don't need or want the bag mounted. For that it works great, it keeps the straps tight so they are flapping about and leaves space to get to the fuel cap on most bikes from the looks of it. The buckles are hard plastic and I would not want to use this for any length of time as it will wear and scuff the paint. I would be willing to pay more for covered buckles, or some other system of protecting the paint surface. I gave it a recommend, but caveat that it is not perfect and could use some other features.

Wolfman upgraded the fabric to 22oz vinyl for the body and incredible 34oz for the sides and uses a waterproof webbing for the top opening to prevent water wicking into the bag.

Simple effective roll top design 4 compression straps, two over the body, one at each end Deluxe carry handle Removable shoulder strap and two mounting straps included Made in the USA Dimensions and Capacity Small Expedition Dry Duffel Width 20 Height 11 (with the ability to get taller) Front-to-back 11 Capacity 33 Liters+ Medium Expedition Dry Duffel Width 24 Height 11 (with the ability to get taller) Front-to-back 11 Capacity 40 Liters+ Large Expedition Dry Duffel Width 28 Height 11 (with the ability to get taller) Front-to-back 11 Capacity 47 Liters+ Note Product photos show 2 D-rings on each side at the bottom of the bag below the Wolfman logo, however production versions of the bags feature only 1 D-ring per side.

Little early to speak to the overall durability of the bag but so far so good. This thing is way bigger than the listing would make it appear. I currently have a tent, 2 sleeping rolls, a backpacking cook set, a blanket, utensils, and a small trowel in the bag with room to spare. Straps to the bike very securely. Highly recommend this and any Wolfman product.

Like the title says these are good pants. They do exactly as advertised, they are cut nice and don't look like you are wearing snow pants. Fit is true to size, if you want to wear them over jeans order a size larger than your jeans. If you want to wear just them order your size. Knee armor is adjustable but does not always stay where you want it. Did not use the EZ Hem as they are perfect for me as they are. They work very well with my AST 2 jacket but will definitely be too warm for summer riding. The jacket is more versatile.

Very unique helmet finish combined with excellent fit and materials. The helmet is a little tight around the ears for me but it will break in. The liner is wonderful, eye port is easily the biggest I have ever used and the helmet has a certain heft to it but it's not heavy. It feels durable. It also looks the business. For those that have broken screws, were you using the supplied tool for shield changes? Love that the helmet came with an extra shield, shield tool, cleaning kit for the visor, and a really nice helmet bag.

Super comfortable, so far weatherproof. Jacket could be warmer, but that bodes well for summer riding. Took a nice 700 mile trip with varying temperatures and it worked very well. Small complaints with the amount of velcro to deal with. Good pocket storage, so far holding up very well. I ride every day to work in it and I don't mind putting it on everyday. Frankly it is one of the better purchases I have made in a jacket and I would buy it again.

Easy to install, so much nicer than routing all the extra cables with wired microphones. Audio quality is pretty good so far, extra step to make a voice call compared to a Cardo system. Two buttons for the UClear versus 1 for the Cardo unit. East to sync the two units together. Installation in my wife's Shoei was super easy, the well defined ear pockets fit the larger than average speakers easily. My Icon Variant was less simple. The fit is tight around my ears and will take more riding to decide if it's OK or too uncomfortable. Would be nice to have a kit that had in ear headphones as standard so you could choose between them.

Cheaply made, terrible materials, fit and finish are atrocious. I purchased this locally and when it arrived I refused delivery on it at the dealer. It came pre-scratched from the visor rubbing the top of the helmet. I have purchased helmets costing half as much that were far superior in all facets of fit, finish, and overall quality.
No, I do not recommend this product.

AltRider Crash Bars for Triumph Tiger 1200 Explorer The design of the AltRider crash bars utilizes a 1.25 inch stainless steel tubing to fit the proportion of this large ADV bike ( .25 inches thicker than AltRider's usual crash bars). While it may look like a simple design, the AltRider design gives comprehensive protection to the clutch, starter, starter clutch assembly, and the stator. Additionally, the bars are designed to hold the bike up and prevent damage to the upper fairings, blinkers shift and brake levers. In order to successfully provide the best protection, the bars need to be mounted with strong flanges at the most critical structural locations. The AltRider design is the only bar that mounts between the kickstand mount and frame (one of the strongest locations on most motorcycles). The bar mount creates a sandwich on a 4 inch bracket that is 3/16 thick creating a very strong design. The right side strength is achieved using the signature AltRider tube mount that integrates into the frame allowing the energy to distribute into the frame instead of the shaft of the mounting bolt (commonly found when using cheap manufacturing methods). The last point of the design for the crash bars are the nice billet anodized aluminum caps providing a 4.75 inch hidden stash box that will keep your belongings waterproof. The top 2 caps are sealed with o-rings to provide a seamless seal while looking aesthetically pleasing. Features 1.25 diameter bars, this is huge because the standard 1 diameter bars look puny up against this big, burly bike Stainless steel construction Available in silver or black powder coated finish Left side mounting points integrate with the 2 robust M10 side stand bolts, this is one of the strongest points available on the bike 100 designed and made in USA 30-45 minute easy installation with instructions in English The kit includes Loctite, high quality fasteners, T 40 and T 55 drivers

After the bars were installed I noticed a chip in the finish inside the Alt Rider logo. Too late to send them back as they were installed. I looked them over but did not see the issue until later. When I did it was because a small area had peeled off.
Install was very easy, directions were spot on. One thing that is really nice is the bars come with the special tools you need for the star pattern bolts. The bars are very sturdy and look great. I really like that they blend in very nicely.
Lastly, the 4 inch hidden stash is not easy to use, it opens with some difficulty and I simply gave up on the right side. I did not buy the bars because of this feature so not a big deal to me.
Yes, I recommend this product.

The Auto Tune is a wonderful item. It comes preconfigured and you can plug it in and let it run or you can get deep in the weeds with all the settings and options. I like to tinker so I am logging into mine with the software every few days.

Simple, very strong material and stylish without being flashy are the main features of this backpack. I have used it on the bike and off for short hikes with my family. Worked flawlessly for all of it. It's not overly large, my wife can carry it easily yet it doesn't look small on me or too large on her. The laptop pocket is not really for a 15" laptop. My 13" MacBook Pro doesn't even fit in it securely with the Velcro able to close over it.
