Bought these spools for my 2012 Triumph Street Triple R to use with a Steel Horse paddock stand (a great stand in its own right). The spools are bigger than I thought, about an inch in diameter, but I'm new to this kind of thing (my other bike is a cruiser). Not much to say other than the spools are very solid and beefy. NOTE: If you are a 2012 S3R owner, you want the 8mm size. Fits perfectly.
Yes, I recommend this product.

These are my first pair of riding shoes, so I cannot make comparisons. I'm coming from the engineer-type laced boot crowd, so these are quite a departure. My foot is on the wide side, but not overly. I wear a size 11 and these fit to size no problem. I often wear them without cinching the laces for a bit looser feel. This is nice; it gives me the option of making the boots more snug as opposed to starting with too tight. Some folks have mentioned that these shoes have a tendency to cut into the top of the foot, and I can confirm that. Out of the box, the right shoe fit perfectly and the left shoe cut into the top of my foot. This was only temporary! After walking around the house for about an hour, taking them off and putting them on a few times, walking around some more, I could tell that the discomfort was part of the break in process. I decided to bite the bullet and clip the tags and get on the bike. Glad I did because these shoes are very comfortable now. The soles are quite stiff so walking has a bit of a clunky-ness to it, but this too is starting to break in. I imagine that anyone who is familiar with race boots, or stiff soled shoes like these, knows and expects this. The construction is excellent as is the protection --- the main reason I bought them. Compared to engineer boots, these will make your feet look really small (something my girlfriend like to bust on me for) but that's just an aesthetic thing. Expensive, but well made, so the "Bang for the Buck" is relative to the high cost.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I've had these boots for three years. They were comfortable right out of the box. Not too stiff, and they have broken in nicely. Comfortable to walk around in. The sole has held up nicely and continues to provide a very secure grip despite being pretty worn down. Nothing has come undone or fallen apart. Good quality for the price. The major drawback for me has been the laces. I've replaced the laces... how many times?... I think I'm on my 6th pair, so that's about 2 sets per season. Laces have the potential to hang up on foot pegs too. This has not happened to me, but the potential problem is mildly unnerving and can be distracting. This is not really a fault of these engineer-type boots because they all have laces! But it's something to consider. As for me, I will never buy laced boots for motorcycle riding again. The "recommend this product" part of this review could be misleading: Yes, this is a good engineer-type boot, and I would recommend it as such. No, I personally would never buy boots with laces (engineer or not) again for motorcycling.
Yes, I recommend this product.
