I have used the Adaptive radar detector since 2012, three years now. I does pick up radar, but it's not selective at all. I get so many warnings that I never slow down any more, I just start looking around. That's my major beef with it. I have an Escort 9500ix in each of my cars, and I love the GPS warning and when these radar detectors go off, I actually start looking for a cop, and I usually find one. With the TPX, I never take it seriously. So I have purchased a Sena 20 Bluetooth receiver from Revzilla and will purchase an Escort radar detector for my bike. I will pare the radar detector to the bike with a bluetooth 3.5mm transmitter. The aftermath charges, insurance and tickets, are just too high to not invest in a top of the line detector. Bottom line: The TPX is better than not having a radar detector, but if it yells " the sky is falling" all the time, you have to get something else.

It really is the only way to hear the Adaptive radar detector on a motorcycle. However, it is fragile and poorly designed. You attach the receiver to your helmet. It is very easy to accidentally hit the button and turn on the unit, which will drain the battery. I have just ordered my third wireless headset. They break frequently even though I am really careful with the unit. I never use it in the rain, and I am very careful not to let it touch anything when I set my helmet down, mainly because something might press on the button and drain the battery.

Shorai LFX Lithium Battery The Shorai LFX Lithium motorcycle batteries are some of the lightest and most powerful replacement batteries available! See Shorai Specifications and Dimensions data sheet (pdf) for fitment guide and specifications. Most powersports enthusiasts have gotten used to hooking up a tender to their lead-acid batteries, all the time. Shorai LFX have much slower self-discharge than the best lead acid do (1/6 to 1/7, on average), they do not sulfate as capacity drops, and they are the ultimate deep cycle battery, which means that they can still crank your vehicle even if the remaining capacity is quite low. Therefore most riders will not need to use a tender at all. A fully charged LFX can sit for a year or more and still retain adequate starting capacity, without damaging the battery. As such, any vehicle which has no current flowing when the key is OFF should never need a tender. At most it should be charged every 6 to 12 months, depending on the average storage temperature (cool storage is much better for any battery). Newer vehicles may have a significant draw even when the key is OFF, to maintain clocks and computers, etc. In this case Shorai expects that a few hours of riding per month will be all that is needed to avoid tending. If you know that you will go a number of weeks or months without riding, you can either attach a tender, or disconnect the negative cable from the battery. In any case, during storage you may use the voltage chart above and an accurate voltmeter, and consider recharging when the battery is around the 50 capacity remaining mark, or above. Features Ultra light - one fifth the weight of lead-acid batteries on average Zero sulfation for longer service life Holds unloaded charge for one year without maintenance Military spec Carbon Composite Case Faster cranking for better starts Super-fast recharge rate No explosive gasses during charge, no lead, no acid Environmentally friendly Two-Year Warranty! Shorai recommends NOT using a charger/tender if it has an automatic desulfation mode, which cannot be turned off. Shorai has confirmed with Deltran, makers of the Battery Tender brand, that their products do NOT have a desulfation mode, and are therefore OK for use with Shorai LFX. However the best possible charger/tender for Shorai LFX is the Shorai SHO-BMS01 Battery Management System . Case Size 1 148mm length Case Size 2 113mm length Case Size 3 166mm length Case Size 4 148mm length Case Size 5 134mm length Case Size 6 148mm length See Shorai Specifications and Dimensions data sheet (pdf) for fitment guide and specifications. Please Note It is extremely important that you use only the appropriate battery for your bike! A battery with incorrect amperage may damage the battery or worse yet, your ride. Shorai Batteries may not be a drop in replacement, some modification to battery box, terminals etc may be necessary. If you have any questions about which battery may work for you, please call us at 877-792-9455.

I put this battery in my 2012 Kawasaki ZX 10 R. It weighs 1/5 the weight of the stock lead acid battery. I live in Phoenix Arizona and lead acid batteries don't last long here. Hopefully the lithium ion battery will last longer.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I have a Cortech one piece racing suit and the Cortech Adrenaline Jacket. Both of them are excellent quality and great bang for the buck. The Adrenaline jacket flows a lot of air, as does the racing suit. I live in Phoenix and I wear both year round. Actually track days stop in Phoenix June through August, because it's just too hot. In the winter, the vest in the Adrenaline jacket is all I'll need.
I wear and XL jacket and a size 46 one piece suit.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Fit was spot on. The denim stretches a little and the pants seem cooler than the Sartso and AGV kevlar lined pants I have. Workmanship is good. I highly recommend them. I'm going to buy more Drako pants in the future.
Yes, I recommend this product.

This stuff cleans my face shield great and reduces fogging.
I carry the small can with me on the bike to that I can clean bugs off during a ride. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars, is that I believe it's overpriced.

The quality of the images from the camera is very high. The 170 degree viewing angle is perfect. It seems to be very rugged. I mount the camera to the gas cap on my ZX-10R.
