I wasn't sure I wanted to dish out around a hundred dollars for gloves, but I decided anyways to give these a shot. I liked that they are mixed leather and perforated for high protection & airflow.
After using these for a few weeks, I don't think I'll ever try another pair of gloves. If something happens to these, I will be buying them again. They fit perfect, feel comfortable, don't limit my hand control at all, and look top notch. These gloves are the total package - there is a reason these are the best selling gloves on RevZilla.. they are top notch.

I really struggled to find shoes that I felt looked good on and off the bike. I tried Speed & Strength shoes, Alpinestar shoes, and none of them hit that sweet spot of cool casual looking shoes, but still protective and designed for motorcycle riding.
But I guess third times the charm - because these shoes are probably one of my favorite purchases of the year. They look simply awesome, feel great, and don't beg for attention that you ride a motorcycle. They just come across as nice cool looking leather shoes. The style factor alone makes these shoes all but worth the cost.
The materials feel high quality, the leather looks and feels great and the inside materials are really comfortable. They do go up to ankle support so they do take time to take on/off with loosening and tightening the laces.
They do run a bit larger than normal. I usually wear a size 12 (or 11.5 when i find them) and this shoe in 11 fits me perfectly. So if you're an in-between size, go with the smaller size.
Over-all, I highly recommend these shoes. Once you receive them and wear them, you'll be mad you didn't get them sooner. :)

Between the unmatched graphics for the Bell Star Carbon helmets, the low weight, wide view port, and high air flow, I knew this was a helmet I wanted. And this helmet delivered in all those areas.
The best part about this helmet is the airflow. I ride in hot weather and the airflow from this helmet is extremely noticeable. It is night and day difference compared to my Arai Vector 2.
I highly recommend this helmet if you're looking at top notch options. It doesn't hurt that Bell has the best looking helmets around. :-)

Obviously with any jeans, no matter how many bells & whistles they have, it's going to come down to how much you personally like the style, look and fit while wearing them. In terms of quality, attention to detail, and protection -- these jeans ARE worth the price.
Pros:
- Waist size is pretty much exactly as expected. I ordered a 37 and it fit exactly as a 37 normally would in US.
- The overall fit allows you to wear them up higher than normal without feeling uncomfortable or looking silly. The lower positioned back pockets make it look like you're wearing the jeans lower than you really are, which I think is rad.
- The pants are incredibly long, allowing you to wear them up high and not worry about ankles exposing. In fact, they may even be too long (see cons)
- This is a great looking pair of jeans.
Cons:
- I am 6'6, and so when purchasing these pants, I was worried they may not be long enough, and they'd pull up above my ankles. I was wrong - in fact, I have the opposite problem. I have to keep the bottom folded up (twice) otherwise I will trash the jeans because they'll get under the back of my shoes.
- I don't exactly love the actual fit/style of the jeans, they are a bit baggy to my taste, I usually prefer skinny-fit type jeans. So this con is just my own preference. I think for most people, this style jean will satisfy- it's not too baggy, it's not too skinny, it's quite neutral.
Overall:
If you like what you see in the RevZilla video and pictures, then trust me, these jeans are worth buying. They will last, protect, and look good while doing so. :)

Arai Vector 2 Helmet - Solid The Arai Vector 2 Motorcycle Helmet is the successor to Arai's hugely popular Vector model. New features for the Vector 2 Helmet include an SAI visor similar to RX-Q and Corsair V which provides wider field of vision. A replaceable interior liner has been modified to improve air flow around the head and to provide a more comfortable fit eliminating pressure points. The ventilation system has been revamped with a larger size switch and larger rear duct which will create 50 more vacuum.. Solid Colors Frost indicates a Matte finish Diamond refers to a metallic finish with metal flake Complex Laminate Construction (CLC) shell that combines excellent shell integrity with light weight Arai's exclusive multi-density, single piece hybrid EPS liner Arai's multi-density EPS liner is like no other, comprised of up to 5 different densities in some models which is molded into a single piece The single-piece hybrid liner and its unique benefit the direct-fused contact area that each EPS call shares with its neighboring cells creates a mutual support - as one cell is crushed under impact, the surrounding cells assist with the energy absorption. (Liner pieces that are simply fitted or glued together cannot rely on such a high-level support bond.) New ACF-2 front intake vent has an oversized intake opening for better airflow, and a sliding-door mechanism to more completely close it Brow Vent Faceshield Ventilation System provides cooling air in upper face area without holes in critical forehead area of the shell or in the impact-absorbing liner material Exclusive removable 5 mm Peel - away Cheek and Temple Pad layer-provides additional level of customization and fitment Extreme peripheral view - same wider field of side to side visibility as the top-of-the-line Corsair V racing helmet (an additional 5mm on each side when compared to to previous Vector model) New tuned rear vent/wing - Air inlets provide improved interior ventilation and heat removal Hyper-Ridge band - newly sculpted lower reinforcement band provides stability and lower center of gravity for a lightweight feeling. Larger side exhaust ports to increase airflow and minimize noise Dual pivot chin vent to direct air to the rider or the shield for de-misting Reinforced shell ridges with integrated side exhaust vents Larger bottom opening for easier on and off Removable/replaceable cheek pads with 5mm peel-away layer Micro-fitting 5mm peel away cheek pad layer first introduced on the RX-Q comes standard on the Vector 2. Gives you the option of a thinner cheek pad set for a custom fit without having to purchase additional cheek pads Expanding on the 5mm peel-away cheek pads, the Arai Vector 2 is the first Arai model to offer 5mm peel away temple pads as well Interior Shape Intermediate Oval - This shape is designed for the rider whose head has a front-to-back dimension that is longer than the side-to-side dimension. This is a neutral head-shape design which tends to fit most riders well. Meets or exceeds Snell M2010 and D.O.T. standards

I wanted a helmet that fit good, looked good, and most importantly- had a large viewport. I care a lot about being able to see as much as possible.
Lookwise:
I got this helmet in White and ordered a dark smoke faceshield to go with it- I think it looks awesome with the dark faceshield. I also love the color and style of the inner paddings, it's nice to see the attention to detail is everywhere.
Fitting/Comfort & Adjustability:
I ordered a XL knowing I could adjust the cheek pads or top piece to help further fit my head. The helmet fit perfectly without any need to change anything, but I love knowing I can adjust the cheek pads if I ever feel they are too tight. This is one of the most comfortable helmets I've ever worn.
Viewport:
This has one of the largest viewports I've ever seen. Looking left/right without turning my head, I can see about the same as I would without a helmet on. For someone who cares about a large viewport, this is a superb helmet just for that reason.
Quality:
You get what you pay for with this helmet. It's high quality, feels sturdy and strong, the faceshield is easy to take on and off (takes a bit of a learning curve at first though!). You can't go wrong with this helmet, just make sure you get a graphic/color that you like! :-)

Regarding sizing/fitting:
I'm 6'6" and 230lbs with really broad shoulders/long arms, and so finding a good fitting motorcycle leather jacket was not something I expected to happen. I saw that this jacket came in Tall sizes and so I thought I'd give it a try. I started out by ordering a XL (Tall) and amazingly, the arm length was almost longer than I even needed, and it fits nice and snug - but it wasn't long enough (came up too high above the waist.) I exchanged the jacket for a 2XL (Tall) and now it comes down to my waist, but is a little baggier than I wanted - but overall, considering how hard it is to find good fitting shirts/jackets, I am extremely impressed with the tall-friendliness of this jacket. I did take out the liner and pads so that the jacket looks more casual- I'll use the liner if It ever gets cold in the winter, and the pads when I go to the track.
Quality-wise:
The quality of this jacket is more than I would've expected for the price paid. The zippers, pockets, and padding are all top notch and look great.
Look-wise:
IMO, this is the best looking leather jacket around that comes in tall sizes. It's a very sport/race-oriented looking jacket, so if thats the style you like- you're going to love this jacket. I love that there are no huge brand names anywhere and nothing that begs for attention. It's just a very sleek cool looking black jacket.
