Akrapovic Slip-On Exhaust Triumph Speed Triple 1050 / R Our sporty and lightweight SLIP-ON system offer a great balance between price and performance and represent the first step in the exhaust system tuning process. The change will be also visual as our muffler perfectly fit the exterior line.The muffler outer sleeve is made of carbon. NOTE Please check local laws before purchasing. Some modifications may be prohibited in some states. NOTE CARB compliant for use in California.

Well, you get what you pay for don't you? Akrapovic is a top quality product and there is no mistaking that with this exhaust. The welds on the Y pipe for example are ridiculously clean and smooth compared to what came stock on my 2013 Speed Triple SE. I've also attached a picture of how well the product was shipped outside of the actual box. The weight reduction over the stock pipes alone is well worth the price of admission but the aural experience is a reminder of why you bought them when you can't look at them. I get many compliments on how my bike sounds with this exhaust and how cool they look. They aren't so loud you are going to irritate everyone but opens right up when you get on it and to me provides the right amount of sound. I love that the hanger bracket from the bike to the can is made out of carbon fiber, it just keeps everything clean. There is a difference in the look of the carbon fiber between the end caps and the body of the exhaust so don't think it's the same look all the way across but this really isn't a problem. I highly recommend these and would purchase them again!

These gloves flow a great amount of air, have great protection features and wear in nicely. These are my go to gloves for warm weather riding, they dry out pretty quickly when they get wet and the wiper built into the left index finger is very effective! The reason I cannot give these gloves 5 stars is none of the 3 pairs I've had fit the same. On the first pair the left ring finger super fabric put undue pressure on the finger and made it uncomfortable to ride with so I switched them out. The second (and most comfortable) pair felt great but a week later while leading a group of riders, we stopped and I left the gloves on the back of my bike...doh! The 3rd pair didn't feel quite as comfy off the bat like pair 2 but now that I've got a couple hundred miles or so on them they fit very nicely. In the styling department, the plastic knuckle looks a little cheap compared to some other options out there but that's purely aesthetics, I've had no problems with it. There are no pressure points on the palm which is something that typically shows up after riding for a few hours with me.

I purchased the tinted insert and corresponding Arai Max Vision shield for my new Vector 2 helmet. In most situations the view through the shield does not offer near the clarity one would get without the insert, mostly due to the way the light shines through the shield. If the sun is at any sort of angle above, left or right of the shield the view is kind of cloudy, not foggy but more like there's a ghosted image making it hard to clearly see the terrain. The darkest tinted insert is too light for anything but heavily diffused light like on a overcast weather day and despite my best efforts to read multiple directions and watch multiple videos on how to install the insert, I couldn't get mine to fully seal up. It is very hard to get the insert to seal around the brow vents even though the shield has a recess for the insert to fit into. Also the little tiny screws that you use to adjust the angle of the pins to increase pressure on the insert stripped out with very little pressure.

I bought this sock as an add on to another order wondering how good a pair of socks this expensive would be, I haven't been disappointed. I was told and can agree that these socks do not hold an odor and I usually wear them twice before washing but you could probably make this your only pair for a 5 day ride provided they dry out over night. These socks don't cause any blistering or other irritations and since they are sewn as one piece, they don't create any hot spots. My boots are GORTEX and don't really breathe that well so my feet will get damp but when I take my boots off, I can immediately feel air movement around them.
I've had this pair of socks since March 2012 and they are still in great shape with one exception. My boots have velcro on them and if the sock attaches itself to the Velcro parts they will fuzz up when you separate the sock from the Velcro. This doesn't seem to cause any issues like a run but they will stay fuzzed up where it happens. I'd guess this is not an issue with the construction of the socks but for someone as picky as myself, I could do without this problem.
I plan to buy the winter version of this sock.
Yes, I recommend this product.
