Seriously, I didn't know you could put such fit and finish into something as simple as a fender eliminator.
First off, the machining quality of the parts is top notch.
There are quire a few parts to put together at different stages, however once together wow what a statement.
The included license plate light is top notch, and the added benefit of the metal license plate surround definitely show you that Yoshimura knows how to craft a stellar product.
Note that you need to follow the directions closely when it tells you to remove your existing mount studs on the bike. It's a little trick and easily glossed over in the instructions, but other than that the installation could not have gone more smoothly.
I know there are cheaper options out there for fender eliminators, but you would be hard pressed to find one that is better put together and finished than this.

It's a socket arm, pretty simple.
Haven't had any issues with slippage, and obviously install was pretty simple.

I've got a 2014 Moto X in a case, and when attached in this, there is absolutely no slip whatsoever. Simple to remove, and simple to install. I'm using this along with a Ram Mount HandleBar Bold Ball, and a 1" Socket Arm. All have given me no issues at all. Would definitely recommend!

The installation of the mount ball is about as simple as can be, unscrew existing bolt, screw in new bolt with ball attached.
I haven't had any slippage of the mount whatsoever and if you're looking for a simple place to mount something on your bars, look no further.

A number of people have had usability issues with the 20S when they first purchased the unit.
The current firmware you're asked to install is 1.3 and it has fixed a large number of issues associated with functionality limitations.
The SENA app is decent at assisting with setting up group rides, and the sound quality of the device couldn't get much better.
Note that these speakers are a little larger than most everything else on the market, and if you're hoping to fit these into the wells in your helmet, slight modifications may be required.
Overall a great product, and makes the process of riding with others much more enjoyable.

Living in Virginia, summer days can get a little "toasty". However I'm confident that the T-GP-R Air Jacket will keep me protected, and cool at the same time, regardless of how stifling the heat becomes.
The other great thing about this jacket has to be the full sleeve liner. Wearing the jacket with the liner and a moderate under-layer you can easily push this jacket into 50 degree territory.
I purchased the White/Black/Red in Large, and I'm 5'11" 175lbs and it fits great, I have longer arms and could have used about an inch more in the sleeves but an XL would have been too big for me. One thing to remember with mesh jackets though... they're absolute bug magnets, so if that's of concern to you, you may want to opt for a color with black in the center.
My only gripe with the jacket is the forearm and elbow protection's willingness to slide down toward my wrist and leave my elbow exposed. The pocket the armor sits in is a little too big, however a quick modification with a needle and thread fixed this with no problems.
Overall a great jacket, and I would definitely recommend to anyone riding in hot & humid climates.
