I've owned a pair of these for a little over a month now and can say they are a decent glove when considering their low cost. Hands off the bike, they are really comfortable but when I'm on the bike they need to stretch out a bit. I tried them on in the store and they felt great, just the right size. If I went up a size, the glove was too big. Unfortunately when I'm on the bike the thumb is too short and after a while my thumb starts to hurt from the pressure. If I had some unusually long thumb I could understand but normally if all other sizing aspects are correct, the thumb is too. I can't see buying a glove that would be too large for my hand except my thumb.
Secondly, these aren't that good at airflow. I think they'd be okay up to the low 80s but above that I am reaching for my Helds. I think if they had some perforations in the palm of this glove it'd be much better.
Lastly, I'm not sure what the patches on the index and middle finger are for. It's not for use with a smart phone...maybe to help with grabbing the brake and clutch???
Overall and for the price, this is a good glove (strange sizing for me aside). The Velcro closure is nice and doesn't get in the way of my jacket and the cuff is very comfortable against the skin.

I was looking for some riding jeans that were comfortable for a larger person and that were insulated. I like the liner in these pants, very soft feeling. I had a button that attaches to the liner at the waist fall out but no biggie since the liner is also zipped in. I'd say the sizing is a little on the large size but still accurate enough that I wouldn't size down or up either way. One annoyance is the jeans have started to lose their color at the knees but that doesn't affect the performance of the product.

I recently acquired this jacket and am glad to have finally gotten one. I have been in love with this jacket since it came out. I'm 5'10" at 215 and got the 2XL. Jacket fits great with just enough room to add some layers underneath. With the exception of the back armor, it's not noticeable. I have to sometimes push back with the helmet on my head to create some space between the helmet and the back protector but that's not really a big deal.
I'm guessing the natural qualities of the Brazilian cowhide give the leather what some may call imperfections or what I call personality. It looks awesome hands down and would hopefully provide great protection in the case of a crash. The guys at the motorcycle shop were really admiring this thing and couldn't believe how great it looks. The leather is so soft right out the gate too which means very little break in required.
This is the second Icon product I've bought and been happy with, I see more in my future.

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.
