Great product. My wife's bike (Honda Shadow 750 Aero) on stock oem rubber had problem with tar snakes on hot days in that the bike wanted to follow the snake rather than turn. As you can imagine this can be a bit scary on Midwestern roads. This tire has pretty much eliminated that issue.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Sidi Canyon Gore-Tex Boots Features Top grain leather construction Contrasting texture upper Equipped with a GORE-TEX waterproof-breathable membrane Velcro closure system above the ankle Micro adjustable strap system below the ankle Full length inner gaiter Rigid nylon innersole Removable arch support Internal heel protection Internal ankle protection Internal toe protection Leather toe shift-brake pad Nylon plate and internally padded shin plate Double stitched in all high stress areas Reflective panels Bonded non-slip lug type sole Non-Bootie Designs Sidi boots do not incorporate inner booties into their design, and for good reason. Booties make the design larger and cumbersome add to the boots thickness, which interferes with shifting, plus the inner booties retain body heat affecting the riders performance and comfort. Gore-Tex Striving for peak performance Whether its a day on a wet track, a long distance tour through all types of conditions, or simply pursuing your everyday adventures, Sidi GORE-TEX lined boots will help you get there. Designed to provide comfort and protection, Sidi GORE-TEX boots keep your feet dry, even when you encounter snow, or rain. Each Sidi GORE-TEX boot is totally waterproof to keep moisture from penetrating inside, yet incredibly breathable to allow sweat to escape. This high breathability is critical to your comfort because, simply put, sweaty feet are uncomfortable feet. Inside waterproof boots that are not breathable, moisture builds up and has nowhere to go. It then remains trapped against your skin, leaving your feet clammy, uncomfortable, and more prone to develop blisters. This can be even more of a problem in high aerobic activities because the more active you are, the more your feet sweat were talking up to one full cup of water a day! Sidis GORE-TEX lined boots is specifically designed to provide comfort and protection on a hard ride or for longer rides when the weather is warmer. The patented GORE-TEX membrane is where it all starts. Nestled between the boots outer top grain leather and the inner liner, this membrane keeps water out while letting your perspiration vapor escape. As part of Sidis waterproof guarantee, EVERY boot produced is tested for waterproofness and breathability. And, to make sure the whole boot breathes the way it should, all leather and other textile materials used to construct Sidi GORE-TEX boots are tested for breathability as well. So go on take that extra step. Take it in total comfort because youre wearing Sidi GORE-TEX boots!

I particularly like the heated pads in the neck . .amazing how much different the riding experience is when you're wrapped in warmth. Key thing is getting the fit right, as to properly enjoy this you'll want to be wearing a baselayer only and it's the "contact" of the liner with your baselayer where the biggest heat transfer takes place. I found that I increased my "warmth" by cinching mid belt on my touring jack a little tigher to pull the liner up against my base layer.
Can't imagine doing an all day ride in 30 or 40 degree weather without something like this.
Yes, I recommend this product.

This is my first set of "real" pants dedicated to riding. In the past I've always worn "Draggin" jeans and if it was raining I'd throw on a pair of fishing "bibs" which had the usual drawbacks of material that would burn against a hot exhaust, wasn't designed to keep the rain out at 60mph, etc.
Overall I'm really tickled with these as they should extend my riding season by 2-3 months letting me ride down into the 20's alot more easily than what I was doing with just jeans.
As usual "First Gear" products are top notch and have been designed by people who ride motorycles.
Yes, I recommend this product.
