The Yoshi tail tidy works great. Gives a very clean look with an easy installation guide. I combined mine with a new brake light that has the turn signals integrated, so it looks really clean without the turn signal stalks.
It's held up well so far, no issues at all.

My previous experience was with a Bell Revolver Evo (modular), so this was a HUGE upgrade. I'd heard quite a bit about Shoei helmets and their quality, but this one really wowed me.
Size: The helmet fits true to size. I'm generally a large and I wear a large in this helmet. The cheekpads do squish my face a little, however I've only worn it twice so I'm giving it a while to break in. If it doesn't, they can be changed.
Noise: Wow is this thing quiet. I put it on in my house first with the TV on, and I was blown away with how quiet the TV got. On the road I can hardly hear by bike, and the wind noise is nonexistent. No whistling or buffeting with head checks. If you look down or tuck a lot, you will get some hum, but this is not designed for that.
Style: Looks great. I love the stylish but subdued Wanderer graphic. I bought it in white, and it matches my gear and bike nicely.
Features: The built in sunvisor really helps with the glare. The snap on the end of the chin strap is a bit of a pain to get used to, but once you find it a few times you get used to it.
Airflow: I was initially skeptical about this from reviews and the video, as nothing vents directly to your face. I rode around in ~80 degrees, and it was VERY comfortable. The airflow works by moving the air around your head, rather than just blasting you. It's fantastic. Even with all vents open the noise does not increase significantly.
Fog: I started with both the breath deflector and chin curtain in stalled. When sitting at a stoplight, I noticed some fogging around the base of the visor. I was surprised because of the warm weather. I cracked the visor to the slightly vented position, and that solved it. Later I tried without the chin curtain, and that also helped. I have not tried the included Pinlock insert yet, but that should also solve the issue.
Overall this is a great helmet for touring/moderate sport riding. Looks sporty, great on features, and SO quiet. Definitely worth the price!

These gloves are fantastic for warm/cold weather and in the rain or (if you're brave) snow. I've ridden with these at highway speeds down to 60 degrees and my hands stayed warm. Below that you'll start to notice the chill. Cruising around town at 40-50 is definitely doable. I don't care for them too much in the heat, they tend to hold it in due to all the protective paneling.
They are very comfortable, the inner lining is very soft and compliant. One drawback is that you need to be careful not to pull the lining out when removing your hand. It has a tendency to want to come out with your hand, especially in warmer weather when your hand is sweaty.
I've never tested them in a crash, but they are very well featured with protective panels and knuckle guards. The wraparound wrist gauntlet can fit over or under a jacket, depending on your preference.
I normally wear a size L, bought a size L and it fits a bit snug. May wish to go up a size if you prefer a roomy fit.

I got this as my first street helmet after riding dirt bikes for years. I'm quite impressed with this helmet overall. Very comfortable and light given its size and modular construction. This helmet fits well, but is large in outside length and width and might give a "bobble-head" appearance.
Air flow is pretty good, though I do wish it pulled a bit more air in up top. The chin curtain works very nicely on colder mornings and the flip down sun visor is fantastic if you ride in and out of wooded areas.
