I'll admit I was skeptical. Last rider to rider intercom I used with a half helmet was a very popular name brand and while it worked great at low speeds, anything over 40mph required cupping your left hand in front of the (already wind guarded) microphone for your conversation to be anything more than a distorted and garbled jumble of half words. Not so the Sena. Works VERY well right out of the box and conversations are clear all the way up to 65mph. I've found that it's better to wear earplugs, which I always do anyway, and it actually makes the headsets easier to hear. The speakers are small and consequently the sound reproduction is thin or tinny but the earplugs block the annoying high frequencies which allows you to turn the volume up and hold clear conversations. My primary reason for buying these was that my girlfriend is relatively new to riding and I wanted her to be able to ride in front of me so I could keep an eye on her as she improves her riding skills and offer tips, warnings etc. without the use of flashing headlights or handsignals. The Sena works perfectly and is without question, money well spent....that is of course until she uses the intercom to ask me "What are you thinking?"..but, the intercom does have a glove friendly, easily accessible off switch!!
Wouldn't hesitate to recommend this headset.

Ten times better than the Bavarian torture device BMW call a seat but still misses the "all day comfort" mark. Seat is quite firm at first but does ease up after a few hundred miles...having said that, by the end of a ten hour day of riding it takes a toll. After 8 days and 2,500 miles I'm looking at other seat offerings. Not bad but I'd say if you're planning long riding days, look at all options.

Givi AF330 Airflow Windscreen R1200GS This stylish, well-constructed replacement windscreen features improved height and shape with top-notch quality. Mounts in minutes using stock fasteners. Features clear tint and precision-cut shape. Overall height is 21.5 (750mm) maximum width is 23.6 (600mm), approximately 4 inches (10cm) taller than the original screen. Specific sliding wind-screen, transparent, complete with fitting kit. Maximum height 78 cm (12 cm of extension) width 58 cm AIRFLOW is the most versatile Givi windshield to date. The adjustable spoiler allows the rider on the fly to easily and quickly make adjustments. Made of transparent polycarbonate, the adjustable spoiler is infinitely adjustable along the 4.7 (12cm) of travel. Once the desired setting has been selected a simple and secure clamp will keep it in place. The design of the AIRFLOW system creates an aerodynamic effect that eliminates turbulence, allowing for maximum protection from wind thus reducing rider fatigue. Another important feature is the ability to reduce AIRFLOW to the rider to increase driving safety while raining the spoiler effect reduces and, can at times, eliminate rain from collecting on the visor and reducing vision. During the warmer days the AIRFLOW spoiler, can easily be removed allowing travel with only the lower part of the windshield as well. Please Note Fit Kit is included with this windscreen.

This was easily one of the best upgrades I've done on my GS. Far out performs the stock shield. Easy installation, typical GIVI top notch built quality. Just completed a 2500 mile trip and the AirFlow made a huge difference in comfort, drastically reducing helmet buffeting.
Definitely recommend.

I'll be honest...I've wanted a Schuberth for ages, but seven hundred bucks....for a helmet?? After much thought and deliberation, looking at all the helmets in my garage that were "almost awesome" I decided to take the plunge. I wasn't about to drop that kind of money on a helmet I'd never tried on unless I was sure I could return it with no issues...Revzilla won that search hands down, so I pulled the trigger. Ordered Wed night, helmet arrived on my doorstep Friday. Opened it up, took it out of the box and thought to myself, "It's nice...but is it really $700 nice?" After playing with the visor, chin bar, chin strap etc, there was no doubt the quality was top notch but then....I tried it on. Without question, the most comfortable helmet I've worn...ever, in 30 years of motorcycling. Right out of the box, the fit is perfect! Now, to be fair, I'm British/European so I have the "Euro-Round" head shape that this helmet fits so well due to it's German design, but I have no doubt that provided you carefully follow the sizing chart you'll find it unbelievably comfortable.
Is it cheap? No. but here's the bottom line. You get what you pay for. Last summer I rode from Maryland to California via a northern route, down the Pacific Coast Highway to southern California then back to MD via Route 66. Three weeks, just shy of 8000 miles and what I very quickly learned was that the quality (translates to expensive) gear I took performed as it should have, gear that I thought I could "economize" on..did not. Lesson learned..my only regret is not having this helmet for that trip.
My point? The Schuberth is quality. Fit, finish design, everything. If you're on the fence about spending this kind of money on a helmet..do it....you won't regret it and if you buy from Revzilla..you have nothing to lose since they'll take it back!
I only have three rcommendations.
1. Measure your head.
2. Measure you head again..carefully.
3. Measure you head a third time...even more carefully.
This isn't your average "off the peg" lid, it's very specifically designed to fit to exact measurements. Listen to the guy in the video review and you can't go wrong!
