I ride a Honda Goldwing with this headset, and my buddy rides a BMW R1200RT. SInce both bikes are relatively quiet with the windshields, we sometimes have trouble getting the volume loud enough on the intercom to effectively hear one another. Other than that, we have no pairing issues or anything else. One last thing, we do not have the ability to UPDATE the software on these since they can only be updated using a PC. We have all MACS.

I really like these gloves and they are totally waterproof. The only thing is the end of the gloves flare out as though you have a bulky jacket on. I have a rain jacket that tapers at the wrists. The gloves flare out past that. Very good value though.

Knee pads do not appear to be adjustable. Other than that, I really like the pant.

I agree - you should order one to two sizes larger than you are.
