Denali DM Micro LED Driving Light Kit The ultra compact size of the DM light is ideal for street bikes where you want to maintain a clean inconspicuous look without sacrificing brightness. The DM is also ideal for daytime visibility as the smaller optic intensifies the brightness of the light when looking at the light from the front. Consuming only 5 watts of power per lamp, the Denali DM lights throw a blazing beam of light 240 feet down the road in front of you. Thats 85 feet further than your typical motorcycle high beam. All Denali LED lights are housed in a rugged waterproof aluminum housing (submersible up to 3 meters underwater). These LEDs boast an average life span of 50,000 hours thats 6 years without ever being shut off. Yes, Denali went overboard. Its what they do. Features Pod Size 1.7 round x 2.4 long Beam distance of 240ft Power draw of 5 watts/.75 amp per lamp Single intensity Beam Angle 10 and 40 Waterproof IP-68 443 lumens Includes 2x Micro LED light pods Wiring Harness with Relay and Lighted Switch 2 x spot driving beam lenses (10 degree beam pattern) 2 x flood beam lenses (40 degree beam pattern) 2x M8 (8mm) mounting brackets Installation instructions Allen wrench Note Mounting kit sold separately.

I decided I wanted to be seen a lot more from the front on trips and also didn't want a large lamp sticking out from the fairing. I ride a 2011R1200RT. I had mounting tabs on my engine guards and went with the Micro DM LED lights and a flat mounting plate. Removing all the Tupperware was the most time consuming. Installation was straight forward with excellent instructions. I purchased stainless hardware from a local store and mounted everything up. All the wiring and hardware mounting is included plus another set of lens for a different angle pattern.
So far I am a happy camper.

I recently picked up this jacket to use year round and for touring. The quality is excellent. Size wise I purchased a one up size from my normal medium, size 40. The large fits perfectly with room for an additional heated vest for those really cold days. We don't get those here in So. Calif. We do get hot days and with all liners removed and vents snapped open you do get some cooling. Not as much as you would get from a fully mesh style jacket. I ride behind a windshield ( R1200RT), so you need to lower the windshield and open vents plus loosen the sleeves. Don't know how well the jacket will protect in the rain.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I needed a way to charge my Iphone while on the road from my BMW powerlet outlet. I already had a car plug to lightening plug but needed a way to connect to my bike. This was it. I run the cable into my tank bag. Works as advertised. Any 12V power plug will work. Never became loose.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I wanted a shade for my new Pinlock shield that wasn't so dark. The light smoke does the job. Fit is perfect to the Maxi-SAI face shield from Arai.

Arai Signet-Q Helmet - Solid Colors The Arai Signet-Q (the long-oval shaped cousin to the RX-Q) is the product of a racing lineage going back to the late 1970s. Since Arais inception, their RX Line of helmets has set an international standard for rider comfort and safety. The Signet-Q is perfection incarnate, blending modern materials and safety features with decades of knowledge and racing heritage. The result are features like an eyeport designed to maximize peripheral vision, an aerodynamically tuned outer shell and a beautifully crafted and ultra comfortable liner. All these features, combined with industry-leading protection, provide riders with an unmatched level of safety and comfort. A longer shell shape on the Arai Signet-Q Helmet gives 5mm more space front to back allowing for a larger number of heads to fit comfortably. The shape of the Arai Signet-Q Helmet releases forehead pressures and eliminate hot spots for a more comfortable fit every time. This shape works best for riders with a long oval headshape. Features Both the top vent set and side exhaust cowls are direct carryovers from the RX-Q Brow vent ducting redirects to flow air across the temples DDL-4 exhaust vent to the 10mm wider eye port (5mm on each side) Long Oval Fit SAI MAX-Vision Brow Vent shield Clear Pinlock Max-Vision Brow Vent Pinlock lens included Elongated shell adds 5mm from front to back Long-Oval shape helps prevent Hot-Spot Multi-Density Single piece EPS liner Removable, replaceable, washable interior Dry-Cool Surface material for rapid displacement of heat and moisture away from your head and into the ventilation airflow for added comfort while riding and a quick dry between rides 5mm peel-away temple pads adds another level of customization, giving the helmet interior a little extra width when needed Enhanced for customizable micro fitment interior without the need to purchase extra interior components New FCS (Facial Contour Support) cheek pad design Innovative and exclusive spring support adds just the right amount of pressure when needed while being worn Meets or exceeds Snell and D.O.T. standards

This was my second helmet in less than two years. My first, an Arai Vector-2, just never fit right. Had problems with one side only. Many cheek pads later plus cutting away material by my left ear, I decided I have a longer oval head shape and needed the Signet-Q. The material inside is better and fit is excellent. I did notice that I seem to have more noise with this helmet than my previous two helmets. I have yet to take a longer ride than two hours at a time so I don't quite know how I will feel after 8 hours. Good ventilation from all the openings. Mounted my Sena without any issues. I have yet to try this helmet in real summer heat. There is a new helmet glue type smell. Hopefully this will go away over time.

I just jumped into the real world and have gone cordless. I just received the Sena as a birthday gift to use in my new Arai Signet Q helmet. Installation was easy. I had to use additional sticky Velcro since I have different check pad material. Not a problem. The kit is complete with every which way instructions to hook these up. Next was pairing with my phone and GPS. Again easy. Last was pairing with my friend and testing. All works. Phone calls, no problem. Music and guidance? Once again no issues. Volume is fine with my BMWR1200RT. Lacks a bit of bass but overall I am quite pleased.

I like the idea of having a tinted shield for daytime use and able to remove at night. My helmet did not come with a Pinlock face shield but I was able to add this to my Victor 2 and now I have all the features to change tints. Easy to remove after a few times.
Yes, I recommend this product.
