This tire is AWESOME!
So, let me preface this. I ride around 2k miles a month for both work and pleasure (2005 sv650 with 180 rear tire) I do both commuting and heavy canyon riding on weekends. I have tried dunlops, pirelli, bridgestones, and while all of these did something I liked, I always had to sacrafice wear for traction, or vice versa.
I recently began using the avon storm 2 ultras on the recommendation of a friend. My first rear lasted around 8k miles, and the front lasted 12 before I replaced it. This is not the BEST wear I have gotten (I got 10k out of bridgestone rear) but it was by far the best wearing with the grip that it has.
When leaned over on the edge of the tire, this tire is head an shoulders above the other available sport touring tires as far as traction. With the other tires I would routinely have to back off mid corner or delay my accel out of corner due to some chatter from the back wheel wanting to jump loose. Since I began using the storm 2's I have found this to happen much less (can still happen but rarely).
Overall, if you do commuting but want a confidence inspiring tire that will let you lay into a corner with abandon and still get a ton of miles out of... this is the tire for you.
Yes, I recommend this product.

This is an amazing suit for the price. I am a tall rider, 6'5 with a 34 inch waist... so needless to say, it has been difficult for me to find a quality suit that fits my build. This was solved by ordering this suit with longer legs.
Pros of this suit.
1. Included back/tailbone armor... huge + for me
2. Use of kangaroo in about half the suit.
3. Composite/Metal hard points on shoulder/eblow/knee (Knee armor is adjustable) again, huge + for a tall guy.
4. Extensive perforation, I am from southern california, so lots of perf is a MUST.
5. Large panels around impact areas.
6. Suit moves really well, I want to wear it around the house.
Cons.
1. I ordered it in black, so even with excellent perf, it is hot in so-cal summer.
2. I would have liked more built in hip armoring.
Fit and finish is excellent, I feel I got much more suit than what I paid for.

Yes, I recommend this product.
