Let me be clear -- I am reviewing the magnetic version of the Cortech Super 2.0 18l bag. I have no reservations about recommending this bag. Expanded to 18l it holds a ton of stuff, and it grabs the tank securely every time, with no movement at any speed. If you aren't hauling a lot of stuff around, leave it zipped to the 12l size to save some space. The map window is fairly useless, as the entry opening is far too small to get a decent sized map in, but other than that, it performs great.
The same cannot be said for the strap version, which I also have (da** BMW plastic tank covers#. No matter how tight you pull the straps, the bag flops around even with a light load, but the same can be said about every other strap bag I've tried #a bunch). If you have a metal tank and don't need a map window, grab this bag. Otherwise, pass.

Michelin Pilot Road 3 Rear Tires Building on the tremendous reputation Michelin has built over the years, the Michelin Pilot Road 3 Tire is the successor to the award winning Pilot Road 2. With the Michelin Pilot Road 3 Motorcycle Tire you are really getting 2 tires in 1, by integrating a soft rubber compound on the tread shoulders with a wear-resistant compound down the middle, Michelin gives you the best of both worlds. The Pilot Road 3 is a dual compound sport-touring radial tire. Revolutionary X-Sipes technology maximizes wet traction Michelins newest technology delivers all-weather performance without compromising tread life or handling Patented innovation resulting from years of research and development Sipes increase the tread's drainage capacity Sipes generate pressure at the edges of the sipe blade, which helps to break through water film Two compound technology combines tread life and cornering grip 2CT incorporated into all tire sizes, front and rear Wider soft-compound shoulders on the front tire, compared to its predecessor High performance and environmentally sound 100 non-aromatic-oil rubber compound Note Sizes denoted by B are designed specifically for loaded sport touring bikes, or for riding two-up. More info about Michelin Pilot Road 3 Tires available in review by Gear Geek CK.

I have had Road 3's on my Yamaha FZ6 for almost a year, so it was a no-brainer when my BMW R1100S needed a rear tire. These tires are amazing for any bike, but particularly sport-tourers. I have gotten over 7,000 miles from the set on my Yammie with virtually no sign of wear, and performance is great. Cornering grip isn't what you'd get from sticky sport-bike or track tires, but it is way more than adequate in both dry and wet conditions for touring. Highly recommended.

As far as summer jackets go, you can't get any simpler than this -- as the name implies, it's more a jersey than a jacket, although it does have hand-warmer (??) pockets on the outside and a small zip-up cell phone pocket on the inside. All mesh design means it flows a ton of air. I'm not too sure about the zip-off sleeves -- you wouldn't want to ride with the sleeves off, and if it's warm enough out that you'd take them off to walk around, you wouldn't wear the jacket at all, so it's more of a gimmick than any kind of practical feature, in my opinion. The fit is very generous, particularly in the body. I normally wear a size LG in moto jackets, and even the MED in this Icon Hooligan Street Jersey is big on me (probably could have gone to a SM, but since the idea is to flow air, the MED is perfect). The current price is a little steep, but that's for the Icon name. I highly recommend this to anyone looking for a hot weather sport bike jacket.

I've had this screen on my 2005 Yamaha FZ-6 for almost a year now, and I love it. Much better wind protection at speed than the stock screen, and looks better, in my opinion. I get comments on it on almost every group ride.

I've got two Bell helmets (Vortex Attack and RS-1 RSD Flash) that obviously came with clear visors, and I purchased a dark smoke face shield when I first bought the Vortex, so didn't really see the need to spend big bucks on another one. Boy, big mistake. After several times getting caught out after dark with the dark face shield (and finally dropping my new RS-1 right square on the shield), I broke down and got a Bell Transitions shield. Wow! That's all I can say. This is an amazing face shield -- very fast transition from dark to light and back, and fits both helmets (one of the great things about Bell helmets is the universal shields). Can't recommend it enough. If you own a Bell helmet, you need one of these.

What can you say -- you need a unique Monokey or Monorack plate, depending on the type of case you have, and this is it! Very well made, just like the rack that goes with it -- sturdy, heavy-duty, should last many years. Only gripe is how expensive these systems are, after you spend $200-300 for the case itself.

For what looks to be a fairly simple rack, this thing is a b**** to install. It took two of us 2 hours to put this thing on my 2005 Yamaha FZ6 -- mainly because nothing wanted to align. We had to shove and push body parts and rack parts just to get the bolts to line up, and then the bolts didn't want to go in. When it's finally installed, this is a great rack -- sturdy, well made, looks like it will last for many years. Just plan on plenty of install time and keep your temper!

RevZilla Staff Premium T-Shirt Lovingly concocted in 2007 and named El Moto Diablo for its geared theme and devilish lines, the RevZilla Staff Tee Shirt has been part of our lineup from the beginning. It's also the same blue shirt in every video that Anthony has been rocking since Day One of RevZillaTV on Youtube. People love to point out that Anthony doesn't ever change his clothes. I guess when it works you stick with it. The tee is screen-printed on a high thread-count blank that is anything but one of those throw away tees you get free at the ball game. We wear tees a lot - almost every day - and we are very particular about how they fit, feel and hold up wash after wash. Sizing is true to size - if anything they run a hair on the small side. Show your love for TeamZilla. Make a statement. Boom.

I've been looking for a good warm weather glove for months, and after several duds, gave the Alpinestars M20 Air a try. Great choice! First, though, these things run way small -- I usually wear a size MED, so I ordered a LG, and they fit much tighter than any MED I've ever tried. After a week of wear, they feel like they're stretching out a bit, so I think they'll be fine, but make sure you order at least one size up. Feature-wise, there is no hard armor, but plenty of padding across the fingers, and an extra layer of leather on the heel of the palm, so I'm guessing protection should be pretty good for every-day street riding. Air flow is amazing -- it feels like the entire glove is mesh. Absolutely perfect for warm weather rides. This is a shorty glove, so on-and-off is easy. As far as looks, these gloves are killer, and the green Monster logo perfectly matches the color of my two hi-viz yellow jackets. Overall, I'd have to say this is a pretty good glove for the money at less than $60.
Yes, I recommend this product.

The new Sub glove chassis enjoys several benefits previously found only on gloves at a much higher price. Built around a proven Battlehide goatskin palm and finger gussets foundation, the Sub is more than ready for asphalt chaos. A lightweight textile backhand with a high-mobility thumb, not only creates a prime canvas for Icon's finest art, but provides excellent dexterity and abrasion resistance. Completing the protection package is the plastic knuckle armor group fortified to help disperse the shock of the incoming tarmac barrage. The Sub glove - designed to do your dirty work so your skin doesn't have too. Abrasion resistant premium grade Battlehide goatskin palm Injected plastic knuckle armor Short cuff design with secure wrist closure Pre-curved palm and finger design Imported

For the most part, I like these gloves. They are light, air-flow is excellent, protection is probably fairly good and they look great. The problem is, as another reviewer pointed out, the seams inside the fingers. I have relatively short, stubby fingers, but even my fingers rub on the seams on the inside of the fingertips. VERY annoying, and enough that I gave the gloves to my grandson, who has smaller hands. If you have long fingers, don't buy these gloves.
