I've used Pilot Road 3's on my sport touring bikes in the past, and the Pilot Road 4's are just as good with slightly longer life.
Wet traction is awesome, dry traction is good too. It's the perfect tire for a big sport tourer. On my K1300S, I get almost 10k miles out of a rear.
Yes, I recommend this product.

These gloves started off being ok, but stopped being waterproof on their third rainstorm. Now, they just very quickly get soaked all the way through.
I kept using them as non-waterproof gloves for a while, but now (2 years after purchase) the liner has detached from the rest of the glove and they are nearly impossible to put on and remove. Disappointing, I'll stick to Held.
No, I do not recommend this product.

It's hard to find a "low-profile" tail bag (one that doesn't sit 12 inches high and make it tough to throw a leg over), but this bag is pretty good at that. It looks good on the bike and works will with the curves of a sportbike.
The one dumb decision they made was to put the expansion zipper at the bottom of the bag instead of the top. Because the zipper is below where the mounting straps attach, expanding the bag requires loosening and then re-cinching the straps. Not a big deal, but kind of annoying.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Gloves are very comfortable and amazingly breathable: once you get moving the airflow is just incredible. Also, they have better "feel" than any pair of motorcycle gloves I've owned. It's the only pair of gloves I can easily fasten my helmet strap with.

 REV'IT! Turbine Pants
REV'IT! Turbine Pants
REV'IT Turbine Pants The TURBINE pants are a must-have for the rider looking for a premium protective and waterproof mesh pant. The detachable 3-layer membrane shields you from wind and water, but still offers full breathability. High-quality fabrics, including Superfabric, make the trousers as abrasion-resistant as possible. Besides being paired with the TURBINE jacket, TURBINE trousers can also be combined very well with the Sirocco and the Cayenne Pro jacket. PROTECTION FEATURES Outer Shell PWRshell 500D, Dynax mesh, Cordura 1000D, PWR Shell 500D stretch, SuperFabric, Lorica Waterproofing detachable hydratex 3L (5000mm H2O) Breathability detachable hydratex 3L (7000g/m2/24hrs) Composition outer shell 99 polyamide, 1 other fibres Lining 100 polyester Membrane 100 polyurethane (tricot 100 polyamide) Protection Pro-Life CE protection at knees, Temperfoam at hips Visibility laminated reflection at calves ERGONOMIC FEATURES Fit tour fit, regular Adjustability UTA tab at ankles, adjustable waistband Ventilation ventilation panels at legs Features stretch lips at back and knees, short and long connection zipper, adjustable protector pockets, elastic at waistband, calf zippers Pockets slit pockets NOTE Turbine Pants run 1 size larger compared to other REV'IT Pants and to what the size charts indicate. So if you measure up to be a size 52, you should go with a 50 instead.

These are great, high-tech summer pants. Although the mesh doesn't flow as much air some as some competing, more open designs, it's 90% as good as the best I've used.
In exchange, the material is very flexible and comfortable on and off the bike, and they feel light and comfortable.
Expensive, but well worth it.

This suit fits great and is very comfortable once you get into an aggressive position on the bike. Off the bike it feels weird, but that's what's to be expected.
Get the optional back and chest armor too. The suit is meant to fit it so it hardly makes the fit any tighter.
