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+!!!
Yes, I recommend this product.

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 - Solid The pinnacle of perfection, the RF-1200 represents the culmination of 56 years of helmet heritage and has been designed, from its inception, to be an industry leader in comfort, performance and protection. The wind tunnel tested shell has been optimized to provide a compact and aerodynamic shape, reducing wind-noise, buffeting and weight. Shoei has 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 M2010 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 new 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 M2010 and DOT Certified Note Due to manufacturer restrictions, the Shoei RF-1200 and other 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!
Yes, I recommend this product.

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.
Yes, I recommend this product.

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.

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.

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.
