I've had these pair for a good while now (2013) and in short they've been a decent glove, not perfect though. They are super hot in the summer, but they are designed for track use in short spurts. I would use them for commuting and long 8 hour rides on my Speedy with minor hand fatigue.
I wen't down once with these gloves on, a minor 30mph shirt lowside. The palm sliders performed wonderfully and my hand was absolutely untouched, in fact the gloves are still good to go. I will say after 3 years of very heavy use in all kinds of conditions, the stitching and leather is really showing wear to the point I'm on route to look at a different pair. I got all kinds of comments on these gloves and love the fit, but it's time to move on.
Reader's Digest: Good glove for aggressive street riding, very protective.

Been very happy on the application of this lube and how long it lasts on the chain. It doesn't pick up dirt as much as other lubes I've used, but it definitely keeps the chain lubed after riding in the rain.

After putting about a 1000 miles in this jacket on my Speed Triple I think I can adequately put my thoughts on paper.
Pros: Decent airflow for summer use, darn good looks, excellent fit for the typical American (longer arms, bigger chest, wider waist). Feels very protective, but doesn't weigh a ton (barely 6 pounds).
Cons: Fit is snug under the arm pits, but I think that will loosen up over time. The jacket as a whole tends to ride up and rub under the chin, this has been reduced over time since the leather is breaking in. Sleeve cuff circumference is a little big, making it a little hard to fit a full gauntlet glove over it. I'm not too worried about that since I want a looser fit to increase airflow.
Overall, I am extremely pleased with this fine piece of Italian leather work. The level of detail and engineering in this is just mind blowing once you get up close and personal with it.

Icon Hypersport Prime Jacket Blowing up common conceptions of what riding gear should be is where Icon lives. In between the race track and the street is where the Icon Hypersport Prime Jacket puts its money where its mouth is. With a engineered combination of 1.2-1.4mm TrackSpec leather, TechMesh, neoprene cuffs/collar, the Hypersport prime is both comfortable yet primed for those times when things get squirrely. Icon has gone even further with Unit-Fused TPU platting, a full range of D3O armor and a 3/4 connection zipper to connect to a pair of Hypersport Pants that take the protection factor to 11 so you can ride at 10. Features: Icon attack fit 1.2-1.4mm TrackSpec perforated leather chassis D3O impact protectors in the shoulders, elbows, and back Insulated, removable SatinCore vest liner Unit-Fused construction Integrated flex zones TechMesh panels TPU Injected shoulder, back, and elbow plates Pre-curved arms YKK zippers Drop tail Interior zipper Slash and cargo pockets 3/4 waist zipper connects to Hypersport Pant Streamlined SportCuff Neoprene collar Thumb loops

I received my Icon Hypersport Prime Jacket and I was initially wowed by its looks and features. After wearing it around the house though I really started to like how it fit around the chest/torso area. It was all good until I tried to get my gauntlet gloves on, they couldn't fit. There was so much excess fabric and leather for the sleeve that I couldn't even comfortably get them on.
After calling in the awesome Revzilla customer service, Tom who by the way gets a thumbs up from me, really understood where I was coming from. He explained that the Hypersport Prime jacket has a "fuller cut" that is pointed toward the stunting and beefer american crowd. After hearing that I was set on returning the jack, got a shipping label and off it went...kind of bummed out. I've been waiting for 2 years for this moment.
Now, fellow riders, I will tell you, this jacket is awesome. It's fit, finish and protection was top notch and one of the best choices for its price point. It although just wasn't up to my requirements when it comes to how I want a jacket to fit.

I've been in 4 lowside crashes, not that I'm boasting, and I've worn the SMX-5 boots through all of them. They were 30-50mph crashes where it involved loss of traction, a hard impact on the side of the body and a 20-100ft slide. The only injury I sustained to my feet was at maximum a twisted/sore ankle, but not bone injuries or lacerations. These boots are a bit over kill for wearing everyday on the street, but the level or protection you get is awesome for the money you spend.
After getting roughly 200-500 miles of riding and use they really break-in and become decently flexible.
Only nit pick I have about them is that they don't flow air all that well, so in-turn they become a little hot and sweaty in the summer.
Final thoughts: These boots saved my feet and I can't thank Alpinestars enough. Going through 2 pairs in 4 years I'm extremely pleased with them.

I've been using Plexus since day 1 of riding a motorcycle, 4 years now and boy has this stuff worked like magic. It really cleans bugs and dirt off quite well, just let it soak in or a minute or so and it all wipes off super cleanly. This also gives a slight water repellent factor to your visor, last about 30 minutes to an hour in heavy rain. I can say it also has a slight anti-fog factor too, not much though.
I give it an A+!!!

So far absolutely no issues with adding the acid pack, install or use. It was slightly less wide than the original battery in my Triumph, but not too much to worry about excessive movement.
This thing really holds a charge well for long periods of time in cold (0F), and cranks with only a tiny bit of hesitation after sitting for a month or so. It charges quick and does not over heat...so I can't complain.
Definitely a good purchase for a street rider...

Shoei RF-1200 Helmet The pinnacle of perfection, the Shoei RF-1200 Helmet represents the culmination of 56 years of helmet heritage and was designed from its inception to be an industry leader in comfort, performance and protection. The wind tunnel-tested shell is optimized to provide a compact and aerodynamic shape, reducing wind-noise, buffeting and weight. Shoei not only designed the RF-1200 to be one of the most comfortable helmets on the market, but also one of the safest, meeting both DOT and SNELL M2015 safety standards. Whether you are a track day enthusiast or cross-country cruiser, the RF-1200 will allow you to ride with confidence, freeing you to concentrate on the road and, most importantly, enjoy the ride. Slim And Light Weight Design One of the most important features of a quality helmet is that you hardly know its there protecting your head. Shoei has reduced the weight of the RF-1200 by using a slimmer design and building a distinct line into the side of the helmet that also serves as an accent. As a result, the new Shoei RF-1200 is lighter than any other Snell certified helmet in the current Shoei lineup. Shell Construction The slim design of the Shoei RF-1200 , with its distinct accent cut line, widens the bottom of the helmet to help ease the process of putting the RF-1200 on or taking it off. Further advancing the comfort of the AIM+ shell is the industry leading four shell sizes that the Shoei RF-1200 comes in. The impact-absorbing dual liner consists of two layers incorporating different densities, helping to effectively balance the potential impact applied to the more rigid shell. Quietness Through advancements in the aerodynamic shape, improved interior linings and a new and improved shield system the rider will experience a very quiet and comfortable riding experience. The interior of the RF-1200 has achieved a balance of a comfortably soft fit and a firm, stable hold. The design of the cheek pads also improves the motion of the neck, thus helping the rider to check traffic behind him/her for example. Shield System The CWR-1 Pinlock shield features ribs on top and bottom of the shield to improve rigidity and eliminate bending of the shield caused by wind pressure or the opening and closing of the shield. Independent beading in the top and sides of the Shoei RF-1200 help to keep the seal of the shield tight and eliminate any excess air. In addition to the CWR-1 shield, Shoei has developed a new base plate for the RF-1200. The Quick-Release Self-Adjusting base plate is spring-loaded and pulls the shield back onto the helmet, sealing it tightly against wind and rain. The addition of a five-stage rotating dial allows for fine tuning of the base place for easy shield adjustments. Ventilation A large lower three position vent, three upper air vent intakes and four uniquely positioned upper exhaust outlet vents combine with the Dual Density EPS liner to allow cooling air to travel unrestricted through tunnels created in the EPS liner. Features: Four shell sizes Dual density EPS liner Superior ventilation 3D Max-Dry System II Liner E.Q.R.S. (Emergency Quick-Release System) CWR-1 Shield System Neatly secure chin strap Includes Pinlock pins and lens insert Includes breath guard and chin curtain Snell M2015 and DOT Certified Note: Due to manufacturer restrictions, Shoei products can only be shipped to addresses within the United States.

I just recently purchased the red, white, and blue graphic Shoei RF-1200 helmet and first of all I am very impressed about this lid.
The fit as of now is a little tight, but the cheek pads will wear in eventually. The wind noise is still apparent, but it is a lot less harsh than what the rf1100 was. The visor does have a larger opening and I'd say it seals better than the rf100 as well. I just rode through a decent rain and not a drop came into the helmet at 60mph+. The lightness and compactness of the new shell shape is immediately noticeable, you can actually turn your head quickly in any direction at an speed. Buffeting as been reduced aside from being right behind a semi-truck. Ventilation is a little more than the rf1100, but is placed in more strategic areas that maximize cooling.
The graphics and clear coat quality is excellent, hopefully those will last a long time.
I'll comment as the time goes by that I use this helmet and review as things go....scout's promise!

A bit bulky on the fingers, but if you are commuting on the highway on cold days, these are great. If you ride more in the city, I'd steer away from these do to the reduced dexterity in the fingers. There were a few times I couldn't move my fingers fast enough to react to a sticky situation and I had to take more aggressive measures than usual.

I made the mistake of not scrubbing in my tires the first ride I had on these tires and had a good lowside crash. After a month of repairs I finally got back on the road. Once broken in, these tires really work well in almost all conditions minus snow and ice of course.
They have over 5,000 miles on them so far and there is hardly a flat spot on them from all the highway riding I do. I've yet to ride in heavy rain with these, but on cold mornings they do quite well. I have had them skip out a little on heavy accelerations in the cold 40degree mornings, but give it 5-10 miles and you are good. When it gets warmer, oh boy do these grip, not once did the 125hp of my S3 slip these tires, wheelies or drag starts.
The leaning on these tires are very progressive and give a decent feel in the turns. There is a bit of a buzzing on highway speeds, but it's nothing to spoil your riding.
I'll comment at a later date with more information and a long term report.
