Ok I have been for a few good rides now with this jacket & its Gr8 first off the size 54 jacket fit, is near perfect for me at 5ft 5" with 44" chest (just a little long in the torso). The quality of the jacket is very good really well made of high grade leather & CE rated armour. The style is really nice I got black with just that little bit of white, “Me Like” Not 2 flashy. The performance is extremely good at low & high speed, venting is average but it doesn’t seem to get to hot. If you are after a sport bike leather at an amazing price you can’t do much better than this!!

I love this saddle it looks Gr8 & is so comfortable on the long rides. I did 1800km over the weekend mostly mountain & country roads with a little bit of city traffic, 5hrs in the saddle & the butt was only a little num. The shape & grip of the saddle gives me heaps of confidence carving it up in the corners. It has increased the seat height by about 1/2in so I’m back to tip toes (bugger) Lol.
I have only given it 4 stars for durability because its new ask me in 5 years!!

This cover in just a short time (6 weeks) has had been tested by winds up to 150km & torrential rain & has been amazing!!! I ordered XL for my CBR1000rr. Covers the whole bike to the ground a little baggy but with a couple of bungee cords keep it tight. At this point I cannot fault this product.

Gr8 bit of kit soled construction easy to use loud alarm you can’t ask for too much from a lock!! Have not rated durability because have only had it for 4 or 5 weeks. The alarm installed beep is a bit loud & annoying for my neighbours, in the early morning.

I have rated fair for air flow that’s because they are Sidi rain boots & are not designed for air flow but to keep your feet dry!! & that’s what I need. Got court in a 2hr rain storm I was soaked from my chest down to my knees, feet dry!! The boots in just a short time have moulded to my feet nicely & are not uncomfortable to walk in. The only time my feet have gotten damp is from sweet on the hot days!! If you won’t water proof & air flow you will need to pay around twice the price $$

The first thing I noticed about this leather was the weight of it, very generous for medium weight leather. The second thing is the look heaps of style white stripes distressed leather & brass zippers nice!!
I got 1 size up so I can wear a worm polar fleece jacket under the leather for the cold weather, this was my mistake my actual size would be better. As for the functions of the jacket gr8 vents work really well with the inner jacket removed & heaps of pockets. Would be nice to have a little more adjustment at the waste. All in all this is a gr8 leather jacket & I will be putting in another order for the same jacket in the right size!!

This is a really nice helmet, the vent configuration works gr8 with the exhaust vents directing the air over the top of the head making for a cool head even when hugging the tank on my CBR1000rr. The field of vision is amazing a little more peripheral vision makes a huge deference. I found it good at high & low speeds. Have not yet tested in the rain, but the helmet gasket looks like it will do the business. Sorry but have no intentions in testing durability of helmet. It’s a Shoei that’s good 4 me !! Oh & the diverge graphic in black & gray stunning.
