I am always impressed on the amount of weight I can carry an not hardly feel it. It feels like a warm hug from your mother, nice and snug and not going anywhere.
The adjustment system on this bag is also quite innovative and very easy to figure out.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Works well with anything you use it with, inside contacts are prone to corrosion if left out in the rain. Definitely use the supplied cover if you ride in all types of weather.

Michelin Pilot Road 3 Rear Tires Building on the tremendous reputation Michelin has built over the years, the Michelin Pilot Road 3 Tire is the successor to the award winning Pilot Road 2. With the Michelin Pilot Road 3 Motorcycle Tire you are really getting 2 tires in 1, by integrating a soft rubber compound on the tread shoulders with a wear-resistant compound down the middle, Michelin gives you the best of both worlds. The Pilot Road 3 is a dual compound sport-touring radial tire. Revolutionary X-Sipes technology maximizes wet traction Michelins newest technology delivers all-weather performance without compromising tread life or handling Patented innovation resulting from years of research and development Sipes increase the tread's drainage capacity Sipes generate pressure at the edges of the sipe blade, which helps to break through water film Two compound technology combines tread life and cornering grip 2CT incorporated into all tire sizes, front and rear Wider soft-compound shoulders on the front tire, compared to its predecessor High performance and environmentally sound 100 non-aromatic-oil rubber compound Note Sizes denoted by B are designed specifically for loaded sport touring bikes, or for riding two-up. More info about Michelin Pilot Road 3 Tires available in review by Gear Geek CK.

So far I've been really pleased with these Road 3's, great dry and excellent wet grip. I get good feedback and turn transitions are very linear. Even after 5,000 miles I had no flat spots forming from mainly highway use, I'm coming up on 6k miles and there is slight flattening. I easily still have 3-4.5k miles left on the rear tire.

These drystar gloves are great for temps below 60F to 40F, any cooler and my hands would go numb with cold. Any warmer and I would sweat like crazy. These also take forever to dry out unless you have a dedicated glove drier.
I did have a heavy lowside in these gloves during January of 2013, 40mph on really wet streets. After sliding over 150ft on my chest, these gloves came out with only slight signs of abrasion on both palms and finger tips. Absolutely no injuries were caused to my hands, just one good 3ft bruise along my torso and hip.
The Waterproofing works great, but pay attention on the placement of the cuff of the gauntlet. You will want to pull the sleeve of your jacket over the cuff...I know it sounds weird. But, if you get rained on heavily the water won't run down the sleeve and into the glove...trust me I found that out quickly. Went through 3 hours of a torrential downpour on the highway at 40F, it was like I was swimming.
Overall, I was pleased with the price and value of this glove and would recommend it to any level of rider.

This back protector was put into my 2011 Teknic Chicane Leather Jacket and helped me come out of a hard 40mph lowside almost without injury. I won't go into detail, but I felt very safe with this integrated armor.

I went through 2 sets of these tires on my Ninja 250, both sets got atleast 6-8000 miles before needing to be replaced
These are very soft tires, but they handle very well in all conditions. Very progressive turning feel, you don't fall into corners, you glide in and out.
You will not be disappointed...

Been through a few rains in this jacket, I would recommend to keep moving though, there isn't too much air flow at slow speeds.
There are tons of dry pockets and it looks great.
Build construction so far is holding up and looks like quality work.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Good air flow for those hot summer days, and looks cool in black. One thing I so wish they had on this glove was hard thermoplastic sliders on the palm. Coming from experience of seeing the "shiny" stuff on the road, it's a natural human reaction to put the hands down first. Even in a 40mph lowside I wore through all of the carbon knuckles and palm sliders in my A*s SP-2 gloves.
Other than missing the sliders, these gloves are very flexible once you get them broken in.
Yes, I recommend this product.

These are my first full length boots and...wow they are awesome. They broke in about 1,000 miles, in fact I think getting them a little wet from use helped. They are super comfortable and a very supportive.
I will tell you, they WILL protect you in the event of an accident. I had a hard 40mph lowside on a 1000cc supersport, due to sand in a turn. I wore through half of the left toe slider, but other than that, just a slightly twisted ankle. Without these boots I might not be walking for a long time. Anyways, you can put your trust in these boots to protect you....tried and tested.

I've been through quite a few super heavy sever thunderstorms with this suit, and let me tell ya, you stay dry. The quality is ok, and the fit is a bit large, but if you wear gear that's fine. You are very visible to other riders as well.
