Continental Conti Attack SM Supermoto Tires Advanced high performance street legal supermoto tire. Extraordinary light handling with outstanding grip curve stability Exceptional control of riding performance and optimal feedback in the limit range 0-steel belt construction on the front and rear for higher stability and feedback when braking into and accelerating out of curves Good cold grip and quick tire warm-up through a newly developed Black Chili tread compound, specially designed for supermoto riding Approved Continuous Compound Technology ensures high mileage and maximum grip in extreme lean angles Traction Skin provides an extremely safe and short tire break-in for the ContiAttack. This is possible due to the revolutionary raw tread surface, which is the result of a new mold coating technology which eliminates the need for tire-release agents 120/70-17 and 160/60-17 are OEM for KTM SMC 2007-2011

Unbelievable amounts of grip; don't put them on your supersport

Picked these up for my 1997 KTM Duke 620. I ride year round here in Oregon, so I've put these through both wet and dry riding. I've put about 3000 miles on them so far.
The grip these tires have in the dry is absolutely incredible. I have not once lost traction with them despite riding like a complete jack***. I have absolute faith in them, and it has allowed me to get to lean angles that terrified me on other tires. They literally feel sticky to the touch after they're warmed up (and they warm up fast).
The wet performance is good, but not as good as some sport touring tires I've tried like Pilot Road 4's. Definitely don't feel unsafe in the rain, but I do feel the need to dial back my riding a little.
Wear is better than I expected, honestly. I'd heard horror stories from people who put these on their 120+ hp supersports and got 1000 miles before cords were showing. I've got ~3000 miles on them and the rear is just starting to flatten in the center. I think motorcycle weight and power are the two main factors (obviously). My bike weighs about 300 lbs and has 50 hp. If you're in the same neighborhood (aka ride a supermoto), you should be happy with the wear.
All in all, I am fantastically happy with these tires and will be buying another set once I wear them out.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Looks pitch black from the outside, doesn't block too much light inside

This visor definitely took my RF-1100 with the "glacier" graphic to the next level. It looks awesome, and has that totally black, anonymous look that makes everyone think you are just that much more of a badass on your bike.
It also doesn't block too much light from getting through to your eyes. I still wouldn't wear it at night, but it definitely isn't too dark to wear just as the sun is going down.
Yes, I recommend this product.

If you've ridden at <50F without neck protection, you know how cold it gets. This scarf alleviates that freezing neck wind which really helps keep your core temp up. It's soft, comfortable, and looks great. I'm pretty impressed with it. I've worn it for four rides, two in the high to mid forties and two in the high thirties, and I could definitely stay out longer before I started to get really cold.
Yes, I recommend this product.

First off, this jacket looks amazing. I am constantly getting compliments on it, enough that I've even considered taking the armor out and just wearing it around town. And because of the finish on the leather, it is going to age beautifully and have a rich, heritage patina after a year or two.
Protection is top notch, with armor in the shoulders, elbows and down the forearms, and a pocket for a back armor insert. The leather the jacket is made from is thick and durable. Initially, the jacket is a little stiff, but at about 500 miles of riding into owning it it is starting to really break in and it is very comfortable. I am 6', 190 lbs with broad shoulders and a small waist, and the size 52 fits me wonderfully.
The only downside of the jacket is the price. For this much money, you could get a great jacket from a different brand to match your current bike, and then another to match your next. But with looks this good, I am happy to say I think I'll be wearing this jacket until I die or it is destroyed stopping me from dying.

I bought this back protector with my new Dainese R-Twin Jacket, size 52. It fits perfectly into the pocket on the back, though it took a little wiggly to get it in. But that wiggling meant that now that it is in, it is held in place very well.
The protector has great airflow and is surprisingly comfortable. Definitely recommend.
