Akrapovic Slip-On Exhaust Honda CBR 250 R The Akrapovic Slip-On Open exhaust system is designed for riders who do not want to make expensive and major modifications to their stock exhaust system. However, the Hexagonal muffler delivers great looks as well as increased performance for the Honda. Power Torque The Akrapovic Slip-On Open exhaust system increases your engine power and its torque at practically every rpm. Especially from 3500 rpm on, the Akrapovi Slip-On exhaust system adds an increase in power, all the way up to the top of the rpm range. Optional Stainless Steel Headers avaliable for even more power. NOTE Please check local laws before purchasing. Some modifications may be prohibited in some states. NOTE The Stainless Steel slip-on is EC approved and the Carbon Fiber slip-on is not EC aprroved.

This exhaust passes all the grades with A's. Weight savings, fit and finish, ease of installation(45 min), sound no need to take the baffle out, and performance whether you actually are quicker as graphs show, it feels and sounds like you are.
Revzilla gets Aces for customer service by price matching a competitor very quickly.
Bang for buck is Average due to high cost. You do get what you pay for in this case.
Durability unknown only 400 miles so far.
Yes, I recommend this product.

It works, period. This Pinlock lens and shield has eliminated visor fogging on my Shoei RF-1100. Should be standard on higher end helmets like Shoei.
Wish all the shield colors were available for Pinlock lens insert.

Klim Balaclava The lower half is constructed using WINDSTOPPER for complete protection from the wind while the upper half is constructed with Coolmax reducing heat under your helmet and controlling moisture from sweating. A Lycra stretch back panel along with ergonomic patterning has created a perfect fitting balaclava. This technical head sock is guaranteed to be the most comfortable balaclava you have ever worn.

Does well keeping wind chill off the chin neck and upper chest. Ridden in mid 30 degrees at 55-65 mph for up to 30 minutes it made a difference.Tuck in under your shirt/thermal top before you put on jacket. Also seems to reduce helmet wind noise for me. No problems with helmet fit with it.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Got this to help get me through the fall, winter, early spring. So far excellent warmth riding 25 minutes at 37 degrees mostly at 55 mph. Good adjustments for fit. Lots of functional convenient pockets. Did well in a 45 degree misty rain. No real rain experience yet. Vents work OK in warmer weather, 80's, but not a hot weather jacket for sure. Hi-Viz is fantastic,and very good reflectivity.
This is a heavy jacket. Protection is good but a CE upgrade back pad that fits without cutting would make it better.
Hard to find a better jacket close to this price.
I'm athletic, 5'8", 165lbs, women's XL is good fit.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I tried these since many of the women's boots available do not come in my size.(43). These are both comfortable on and off the bike and functional with good protection and they look good. They are slightly large but I wear liner socks and boot sock to take up the room. Girls don't be afraid to try these they rock!

Good fit and features especially the rain cover, side release and front ID pouch. Easy to ride with and holds all I need for my commute. The main compartment zipper is a bear to open and close however. Would like a Hi-Viz or more reflective version since my commute is pre dawn.

 Scorpion Women's Savannah Pants
Scorpion Women's Savannah Pants
Scorpion Women's Savannah Pants Features and cut of the Haley pants in ballistic nylon. Mesh panels in non-impact zones keep the rider cool and dry in hot conditions thanks to a removable AirGuard windproof liner Outer-thigh adjusters and ankle straps provide a snug, aerodynamic fit, and an accordion panel at the rear waistline keeps the Savannah snug while riding SAS-TEC armor at knees and hips Note T hese pants tend to run small, RevZilla advises ordering one size larger then you might typically order.

I am 5'8" 160 athletic build / body builder. Reviews all said these run small so I ordered 2 sizes up. Normally a medium got the XL. Hip and thigh fit is great but the waist is large. A belt solves the problem but there are no waist adjustments and there is no zipper to mate this with a jacket. The belt adjustments at the bottom of the legs are attractive but do little.
I do like the side panel thigh adjustments and air flow.

Excellent fit for my athletic cut body. I've ridden in 43 degree and 85 degree temps and it has provided room to layer and warmth when cold and the good air flow when warm.
Love the Carolina Blue and White color.
