I use this on a moster796 and 1098 where both bikes don't work with magnetic tank bags. So this option of being able to attach a 20liter dry pack is a great option to have. It's also not that difficult to remove when you need to refuel. I do wish that the velcro attachments that you're supposed to slide under the seat were a little longer though. I have to tie them to the frame for some bikes. I feel the price for this attachement is high, but rated it overall good because I'm a big fan of Kriega gear

Kriega US-20 Drypack The Kriega US-20 is an award-winning, high quality piece of motorcycle luggage, offering 20 liters of capacity. Like all Kriega US bags, it is a 100 waterproof Drypack with innovative design which attaches to the sub-frame, via included buckle loops and Alloy Hook Straps, for use as a motorcycle tail pack and courier bag. The Kriega US-20 motorcycle bag comes equipped with removable shoulder and waist straps. It can be carried courier style, on or off the bike. It can also be used as a tank bag (with addition of US Tank adaptor) or in combination with other US packs to create a supremely adaptable, modular, soft luggage system. Anti-slip mesh base also doubles as a pocket to store the shoulder waist straps, or other items, when the US-20 is attached to the motorcycle. The shoulder strap connects to the large D-rings at each end of the pack and the waist strap connects to 2 x tuck-away buckles at the corners of the mesh-pocket. The Kriega US-20 dry pack motorcycle tailpack is designed to work perfectly with pretty much any motorcycle, via a super secure attachment to the sub-frame. The pack is easily attached/removed by 4 x quick-release buckles, and no extra bungees or rain covers are required. The Kriega dry bag US-20 tail pack utilizes the latest generation of fitting straps. US Alloy Hook Straps allow tailpack combinations of up to 90-liters to be carried with confidence and convenience. Easy on/off with no loose straps remaining. Custom CNC milled, aircraft grade, 6061-T6 alloy hooks attach to the four discreet web loops located on the frame of the bike. Fitting method is particularly suitable for traditional one-piece motorcycle seats and bolt-on seat pads/racks, as well as standard seats. US packs can be mounted inline or across the seat. For use as a tankbag, Kriega US Tank Adaptor must be purchased. Kriega US-20 dry pack features 100 waterproof main-body RHINOTEK abrasion resistant fabric HYPALON abrasion resistant reinforcement DRYPACK removable taped-seam inner liner 420D nylon ripstop - lightweight yet extremely strong CNC milled, 6061-T6 alloy fitting hooks Acetal ITW Airloc quick-release buckles YKK water-resistant zip on side pocket Side access zip pocket (water-resistant) Coated-mesh pocket Shoulder waist straps US Alloy Hook Straps included 10-year guarantee 20-liter capacity (H)15.7 x (W)10.2 x (D)7.5 inches Note The US-20 subframe loops are reflective, not black as shown. This will help to ensure a secure connection to the frame of your motorcycle, and to differentiate between the subframe loops and the connection straps.

Since I got this dry pack, I've been using it everyday. On my commute to work and also on long touring trips in all kinds of weather. Unfortunately in snow too....
The insides stay completely dry, the outer pocket doesn't stay 100% dry but dry enough in light rain. In a typhoon, the rain will get into the outer zipper, but not the main compartment of the back.
The attachment system to the bike is really great. Really simple and have been able to attach it to almost all of my friends bikes too. The optional clips are also great to have when removing the seat is going to be trouble.
The 20liter size also has a shoulder strap that makes it really useful even when you are not on the bike and walking around in the rain. It fits my 15inch macbook and peripherals, rain gear and shoes(loafers).

Icon Hooligan 2 Mesh Overpants Mesh overpant - the idea seems a bit odd at first - until you try them. The Fighter Mesh chassis provides excellent abrasion resistance while allowing complete freedom of movement and incredible ventilation. Integrated mechanical flex zones further increase the mobility and comfort of the pants. Worn over a set of normal pants this outfit provides a great riding experience in warmer weather climates while providing enhanced protection. Features Icon loose overpant fit pattern Removable knee impact protectors Durable breathable fighter mesh nylon chassis Adjustable waist straps Perforated panels for venting Ribbed flex panels on knees Zippered side pockets for secure storage Ratchet waist closure

I was in a crash this summer with these mesh pants on and they saved me from a lot of road rash. The padding was very minimal around the knees but definitely kept me from being seriously damaged.
Also since the pants are so comfortable I wear them all the time. Even in the winter with warm clothing underneath. Since it's mesh, it's really easy to pack away into a back when I get to work.
They are VERY baggy so if you don't like that look I don't recommend them!

I bought this shoe for my commute to work which is only about a 15 minute ride. I don't think you need to see the review to know that this shoe is not intended to have LOTS of protection, but it does function better than a basketball shoe. The soles are sturdy enough to be riding shoes, and in an event of a crash I have a feeling it'll keep by heel from being crushed. The ankle protection is however minimal. If your going to be doing lots of riding I suggest you look for a real riding boot. I bought this shoe because of it's "office acceptable" design and comfort when teaching. (Since I'm standing for the whole day, it's not comfortable with racing boots on)

AGV GP-Tech Winter Test Rossi Helmet GP-Tech, the top of the AGV helmet line, was conceived, designed, and developed with the one precise objective of being the benchmark for helmets primarily destined to racing use. Made on the basis of the best of AGV racing experience, the GP-Tech combines safety, ventilation, and perfect comfort with an extremely innovative and aerodynamic design. GP-Techs design is the most innovative in the market today, and its assertively modern lines clearly distinguish it from its competitors. Aesthetics is not merely an end in itself, however the slender and streamlined chin guard, the lines at the sides, the top air vents and the back tail all make the helmet extremely aerodynamic, ensure excellent ventilation, and guarantee perfect safety performance in case of impact. 2-piece dual-density carbon Kevlar construction Ventilated by the IVS (Integrated Ventilation System) which features channels hollowed directly into the shell of the helmet Features a fully removable and washable Cool Max liner Comes with an anti-fog and anti-scratch polycarbonate clear Racer-X visor with tear-off system Replace the shield within seconds without the use of tools Double D-ring chin strap Clear shield included with helmet, dark smoke shield sold separately Comes in 3 Shell Sizes (XXS, XS, S, M),(L, XL),(XXL, XXXL) DOT and ECE-2205 certified

I've been using a Shoei for a long time now, but my friend gave me his old AGV helmet recently. I found the weight of the helmet and the aerodynamics much better than the Shoei helmets. The GP TECH is much quieter than the Shoei and visor easier to use. I find the strap to be a little difficult to tighten because the straps don't slide to well along the D-rings but I guess thats a good thing to keep it from sliding off too.

I've used this headset now for about a month. It's really good quality and I love how it's really clear and has great speakers.
Pairing is quick and connection to the phone is instant too. Really can't imagine using another headset now.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I use this to lock my helmet to my motorcycle or just to hang my helmet to my backpack or bag.
The lock is really easy to set and it's easy to use.
However if I was to be picky, the lock hinge joint is a little loose and it feels like it might be a little weak... I've only used it for a week or so, so I guess time will tell.
The rubberized finish was the one I chose. I'm glad I did, cause I don't want the lock scratching paint off my bike frame.
Yes, I recommend this product.

AGV K3 Helmet The K-3 is near the top end of the AGV entry level range. GP-tech lines and Valentino Rossi replica helmet graphics make this the ideal helmet for young riders and fans of the racing world. The only full-face thermoplastic model in the agv range, the K-3 is the perfect choice for riders in search of a safe, high-quality helmet with attractive design at a modest price.The K-3 design is inspired by the latest AGV developments starting from the Stealth, S-4, and Ti-Tech and continuing with the Blade/Blade LX and GP-Tech that have so clearly and distinctive defined the companys style. This makes the helmets immediately recognizable and distinguished from all the other proposals on the market. In the same way, the differences with the helmet that the K-3 has replaced are equally evident. Features Fabrics Dry-Lex with hygienic treatment Inside padding Removable and washable (excluding neckroll) Number of shells 1 shell size Retention System Double-D ring Shell Painted HIR-TH (high resistant thermoplastic) resin Shield Mechanism Perimetrical visor seal, XQRS (Extra Quick Release System) - shield replacement without tools in few seconds Ventilation System Front air intakes and rear extractors Note Helmet comes with clear shield, tinted shield available for purchase separately.

I bought this helmet for my wife and it was a great buy.
The size was a bit smaller than I thought from the measurements we took, but other than the size (which I'm sure will fit fine after she breaks it in) it's a great helmet.
One problem that we had was when installing the SENA intercom system headphones, there wasn't enough space compared to my SHOEI XR1100. The sponge part covers most of the ear so I think the sponge fitting might need to be cut a little to accommodate the earphones inside the helmet.
I haven't worn the helmet but my wife has worn mine, and she says the airflow inside the helmet is much better than the SHOEI XR1100 (I think the model name in the US is different...)
Hope this review helps
