Basically a great bag. Good quality materials/construction and functional design, TONS of space compared to most other bags but still maintains a pretty aerodynamic low profile and it looks streamlined once its on. Keeps its shape when empty, which I like, and the straps are awesome, waaay better than bungee cords. My biggest complaint is that it has a soft bottom, which wouldn't be a big deal normally, but with a tail bag this size unless you have a very wide, flat tail section the sides of the bag (which extend a good few inches over the sides of my Monster 796) will pull over and down around the sides of your seat when you cinch it down, even when full, making it impossible to get a snug fit...unless you have it full of square plates the exact size and shape of the bag. You want a tight fit so it doesn't move around back there and to get it right I had to fabricate a little mounting deck out of an old lunch tray and that did the trick, but it was kind of a time consuming hassle. Not exactly plug and play, in my case at least. This could be solved easily by including an aluminum or plastic hard bottom plate sewn into the bag, but I suppose that would add significant cost, too. Anyway, now that I've got it dialed I have no complaints. Great bag.
Yes, I recommend this product.

When you're talking Dainese you're talking about the best. Rossi knows it, and everyone else does, too. They don't come cheap, but real quality never does. If your primary objective is maximum protection combined with ultimate functionality, flawless design, and sleek Italian styling than you've found what you're looking for. These boots fit like a glove and look even better. It's difficult to describe the effect they will have on your riding, they kind of act and feel like a second skin, like an extension of your body almost they're so comfortable. They're light, flexible, indestructible, have great tactile response and feedback and they really make you feel like you're connected to the bike, like you're part of it almost. Hard to describe, but they're awesome. They don't flow a lot of air, but my feet magically don't sweat, or get hot in them somehow so it hasn't been an issue. I could wear them all day on the bike, maybe half that off the bike. They're comfortable and move easily, but I wouldn't want to wear them walking around all day. One observation, not a beef, but a potential inconvenience for some: the incorporated velcro on the shin and instep above the ankle will snag on the lining material of any suit that doesn't have the accompanying male/fuzzy side of the velcro...or snag on anything else that snags on velcro for that matter. I think the Laguna is the lowest model on their suit foodchain that has it. I have the Stripes suit, which doesn't have it, and it started to fray the inside lining until I bought a few pieces of male/fuzzy velcro from a material store and stuck it to the boots to keep them from snagging on everything. This is not a design flaw, on the contrary, it's an awesome feature designed to keep your leg from twisting and breaking in a crash, but to take full advantage of it you need a corresponding suit, or to sew some velcro in yourself. Bottom line, these boots are at the forefront of the current evolution of safety gear and are the absolute pinnacle of the industry. Get 'em, you won't be sorry.

 Powerlet rapidFIRe Proform Heated Jacket Liner
Powerlet rapidFIRe Proform Heated Jacket Liner
Powerlet Rapidfire Proform Heated Jacket Liner Our new rapidFIRe ProForm Heated Jacket Liner with CNC (Carbon Nano Core) heating uses Far Infrared technology to provide fast, deep, soothing warmth. Now the warmest liner on the market at 105 watts! Built in stuff sack and no annoying heating wires of any kind! Stay Warm While Riding Powerlet's 100 watt ProForm heated jacket liners and 60 watt ProForm vests pack down to a very small size to fit on the bike when not in use. Not only the warmest heated clothing available, but our ProForm stretch panels also make them the most comfortable. We recommend using a temperature controller with the ProForm 100 watt jacket liners. The ProForm Advantage ProForm stretch panels provide three key advantages non-binding movement, maximum heat transfer and simple sizing. While all three are very important, maximum heat transfer is perhaps the most important. For maximum heat transfer the heated garments must be close to the body. A long sleeve T-Shirt is recommended under the heated vests and heat jacket liners. A heavier layer can be worn over the garment. Other heated clothing manufacturers provided many sizes to attempt to create a snug fit. This often leads to a more complicated purchase and the potential improper fit if your weight changes. ProForm 100 Watt Jacket Liner Features ProForm stretch panels provide comfort and simple standard sizing. Ultra thin design provides comfort and small storage. Comfortable heated Polartec fleece collar wicks moisture. Zippered pockets manage power cables. Handy stuff sack allows for storage on the vehicle. Unique sleeve finishing reduces bulk around wrists. Glove connectors are located at the ends of the sleeves. Ordering Heated Clothing Three parts are required for heated clothing the power outlet on the vehicle, the temperature controller and the heated garment. Simply put, the temperature controller and cables connect the garment to the power outlet. Powerlet designs heated garments for people who rely on their heated clothing for both comfort and safety. Like our customers, we enjoy a lifestyle utilizing convenient modern electronics and wear our heated gear for commutes to work and trips across the country. Built For A Lifetime Powerlet seeks the highest quality materials and craftsmanship. All of our heated clothing products are developed and tested in the USA by people who ride regularly. Quality components and attention to detail ensure Powerlet products resist wear and corrosion to last a lifetime. All Powerlet ProForm heated clothing carries a lifetime warranty on the electrics and a lifetime warranty on manufacturing defects. Installation Instructions (pdf) Note Does not come with battery harness - Single or Dual Temp Controllers ship with battery harness.

After trying several heated liners I settled on Powerlet, basically because it fit me better than the others and had remote capability (unlike Gerbings) which is crucial in my opinion. Jacket heats really well and like I said, the fit is great. I'm 5'10" and 195lbs and the large fits perfectly, especially with stretch panels in just the right places. The remote dual heat-troller is amazing and well made. I recommend buying the little case for it as well, in fact I'd almost say it was a necessary part of the package since it makes mounting it much easier. I clip it to my mini fairing, loop the lanyard around my bars for safety and I'm ready to roll. The sticky back velcro patch that comes with it is a joke and for $140 I wouldn't trust using it for even five minutes. This is a quality item from a great company that backs its gear, but don't be fooled by the Far Infrared (FIR) 'technology' they claim makes their liner heat better than others. The technology's been around a long time and it works, and this is a great application for it, but at the end of the day...and this is many years of studying physics talking...heat is heat. It doesn't feel like anything other than that. It doesn't heat 'below the skin' like they claim, whatever that even means, it's just a heated layer and though it works very well it isn't some magical 'different' kind of heat that feels or works better than any other 'kind', it's just plain old heat. I mention this because if you find a liner that fits you better (probably the single most important factor in determining how well the liner is going to work for you) then that's the one you should go with, don't stick with this if it doesn't fit well just because you think you're getting something unique or special. All the current top manufacturers use pretty much the same technology and materials, just with small differences in their set ups. I like the integrated stuff sack on this one for instance. But I don't like the rubbery coating they spray on it to increase it's water and wind resistance. Frankly, I can't understand why they would think to do this considering you wear it UNDER a top layer. I have a rain suit if it's wet out. The rubbery coating not only adds thickness and makes it bind to the lining of my outer jacket reducing ease of movement, but also makes it breath less efficiently which gives it a sort of swampy feeling when it gets warm. I preferred the design of the Warm and Safe equipment to be honest, but it didn't fit my body type as well so I had to go with Powerlet. I'm happy with the liner, it's well made and it works really well, but it's thicker and less breathable than Warm and Safe's and the material is less comfortable. W&S uses a soft, slippery nylon that moves really well under your jacket and it noticeably thinner which means it's easier to fit under an existing jacket. The W&S also has hand pockets, which are great when off the bike and using it as a walk around jacket, the Powerlet liner doesn't have hand pockets for some reason. Anyway, bottom line is that this is a great liner from a great company and it works really well. I felt I had to address the issues I mentioned, but overall I am very happy with it. Recommend.

Powerlet RapidFIRe Heated Glove Liner - No Temperature Controller A temperature controller (not an on/off switch) is REQUIRED (and sold separately) for these glove liners. The liners have the potential to get hot enough to cause burns if they are used without a temperature controller. With over 18 watts of heat in each glove, cold hands are a thing of the past. Using Far Infrared technology, these ultra thin liners provide pleasing penetrating heat around the fingers as well as over the back of the hand. Must be used with a controller. Stay Warm While Riding Designed for commuting, touring and extending your riding season, Powerlet heated gloves will provide years of pleasure. Style, comfort, protection, and warmth. Perfect. Performance Guarantee Every heated glove goes through our multi-point inspection process before earning the privilege of carrying the Powerlet name. We inspect internal wiring, connectors, bench meter amperage and resistance testing before labeling and packaging our gloves. Details matter we believe in delivering you the highest quality product for your hard-earned money. Low Power Alternative Perfect for all motorcycles, even those without much excess electrical capacity to power appliances. Glove liners are rated at 36 watts per pair. Stay warm and stay safe while minimizing your electrical consumption.

After trying several pairs of heated gloves from different manufacturers and finding them lacking in the level of protection and design quality I wanted I decided to get these liners and wear them under a higher quality, more technical waterproof glove. It costs more to do it that way, and you do sacrifice some convenience by having to put on two layers, but they heat well and feel much more substantial under quality gloves than the snowmobile type gloves made in Pakistan by Gerbings and Warm and Safe etc. They stretch nicely so you can buy them a bit small, I wanted them to fit like a surgical glove so they wouldn't slip around so I got the Sm/Med and they fit perfectly. I'm normally a size large in pretty much every glove I've ever worn just for reference. They actually heat better than all the other gloves I tried (Warm and Safe was a distant second, if you really want to go the heated glove route that's what I recommend), all down the fingers and the back of the hand. The tighter fit and closeness to your skin means a more efficient heat transfer and these will keep you riding well down into the 30's and below. They are very thin and don't take up much room, though you may still have to go a size up from your normal over-glove to get a comfortable fit. I like the mounted plug insert as opposed to the dangling wire style of most other brands, makes for an easy one handed plug in, which is more convenient than you'd think and a huge plus...on the down side they do stick up a little and make it a tighter squeeze getting your jacket cuff over your gloves when they're on. Not a huge deal though. The Powerlet brand is solid and their customer service and warrantees are great and I have confidence that any trouble I may have will be promptly rectified, which all add up to a smart purchase. Everyone has different preferences and priorities, but for me this was the smartest package and my warm, dry, well protected hands are happy. Recommended.

Bottom line, this is the best all around boot I've ever owned. Not for the track or adventure touring necessarily, but great for any street, road tour, or town riding. I'm on my second pair and already have a third pair waiting in the box in my closet for when these wear out. The first pair lasted a good long time without breaking down, they're actually still going strong after two full seasons in them, they just got dirty and old looking so I bought a new pair. The design and execution are both perfect in my opinion. Great protection all around, especially at the ankle where you're most likely to sustain serious injury, and they breath like a dream. Not too airy, not too stifling, you get just the right amount of flow to cool your toes a little and dry your socks when it's warm, but somehow when it's cold you don't feel it as much. I've taken a couple 3K mile tours in 'em through the pacific northwest and they were great. Never got cold, never got hot, and my feet never felt claustrophobic, fatigued or sore. It never rained so I didn't have to deal with getting them wet, but I plan on just throwing some covers over 'em when it happens. They run true to size, I wear a size 10 in most shoes and the 10 fits me perfectly. They do run a tad narrow, but that works for me. They're stiff and snug, like they're supposed to be, so I wouldn't wear them walking all day or anything, but they're good for a couple hours if you have to. I've worn 'em on the bike for 8 hours plus though and never had an issue with discomfort, great in the riding position. One of the best things about them? NO VELCRO! Useful as the stuff is, it can be a pain in the a** sometimes. This one thing adds so much value in my opinion. Slide 'em on, quick cinch 'em, and ride. Perfect. As for a technical review, they function really well. Great comfort, fit, feel and response, great protection, great design, great materials, Dainese execution and attention to detail. What more could you want? Buy 'em, you won't regret it.

I have a ton of different gloves, from flimsy textiles up to $350 Dainese full metal pros, but I always come back to these. The most comfortable glove I have ever worn while also instilling full confidence in their protective capability. Never been down in 'em, but you can tell when you wear them that they'll survive a solid crash intact and save your hands in the process. Awesome fit and finish and great tactile feedback at the fingertips. I've done long tours with them and always ride comfortably. They fit nicely inside my Dainese jacket sleeve and create a decent seal against up-the-sleeve wind but without creating that binding feeling. They flow plenty of air when it's hot, but somehow when it's cold they hang in there longer than you'd expect and I find I don't reach for my heated gloves til the temp dips pretty low. Definitely not a winter glove by any stretch, but if you're looking for the perfect all around glove this is it. I rock these 90% of the time, including around town, tours, and the dead of CA summer, and only pull out my specialty gloves when I need 'em for the track, wet, or extreme cold. My hand measures 9" exactly and the large fits perfectly. Do yourself a favor and try these out, you won't be sorry.

I've tried many different bike covers in my time and this one beats them all, hands down. Sturdy materials and solid construction, easy to put on (I bought a size med. for my 2011 Ducati Monster 796 and it fits perfectly), and it will last a long time. Most covers I've tried disintegrate in a matter of weeks, this one will last years. I put it on hot all the time, too, and it's never melted, and after two years still looks like new except for a little dirt. There's a nice breather vent on top to prevent molding, and a soft patch of chamois where the cover comes in contact with your windshield to prevent scratching. The only downside is that it isn't really waterproof, at all in fact. If you leave it out in the rain your bike will get wet. Not sure how they can claim that it's waterproof when it isn't even close to that, but oh well. I store my bike in a carport anyway so that wasn't important to me. Over all I think this is a great cover.

Top of the line construction make this a great addition to any Dainese jacket with the G2 pocket. Feels good to know I've got a little extra protection. Made of the new aluminum crumple zone technology, should add a good level of protection in the event of a back impact...hopefully anyway. For the price (when you're talking Dainese it's always pricey) it's about as good as it gets. Construction is solid, don't even notice it's there once it's installed, super comfortable and adds confidence. Pick one up if you're looking to add another level of protection. Recommend.

What can I say, it's a shield. I will say that when replacing these it's always best to go with original manufacturer to ensure a proper fit, which can be critical to avoid noise, wind leaks, and just having the thing fly up on you. The imposters, while cheaper, always feel flimsy and don't fit as well. They're a little pricey, yes, but pay the extra money for the manufacturer shield, it's worth it. Great fit, packed nicely, and as always, Revzilla has it to your door in no time. Dark smoke on this one, which makes my matte black helmet look awesome, looks darker in person than in the pictures, too, just the right tint to cut the glare and hide your eyes.

This is an amazing 'all around' boot. Perfect for every day, basically everything but rain and/or track riding. Great fit, true to size, though maybe a little on the narrow side. Boots have a great feel and solid construction throughout and are super comfortable from the first time you put them on. They add real confidence to your riding. Superb feel and feedback at the shifter and brake. LOVE the fact that there is NO velcro anywhere on this boot, which is awesome considering it's part of virtually EVERY other motorcycle boot in production, and which is a total nuisance in my opinion since it gets stuck to everything it touches and begins to fray as soon as you use it etc., makes these boots a 10 in my book. Add great styling and top notch protection and you've got a solid purchase. You can wear these things all day if you need to and be comfortable, and no one will notice you're wearing serious riding equipment. Ankle and heel cups, toe box, speed laces, snap fastener for lace end to prevent snagging, rigid soles for comfort on long rides, and a flexible and breathable upper all make this a top pick. If you want the added features of toe sliders and padded lace covers you can go for the next step up in this line of boots, those are great too, but at this price point these can't be beat. Fantastic boots!!
Yes, I recommend this product.
