This is my second Dowco cover... the first one lasted two bikes and almost 7 years of constant use. I bought the "Sport Bike" size to cover a Ninja 300 and it's a perfect fit. The cover material itself is quite substantial, although very pliable and easy to use/fold up. The underside (where the cover comes in contact with the bike) is very soft. This cover may be a bit more expensive than others - you get what you pay for.

These gloves are really nicely put together, and seem to offer significant protection despite not looking all that hardcore. They are perfect for riding when the temps are below 60... and are great down to about 40 degrees. I've worn them in the low 30s for half hour commutes, and they are okay... anything longer than that and my fingers started to get really too cold.
The inner liner seems to be very well attached inside the fingers - and so far I haven't had the usual problem of it pulling out or getting creased (you know what I'm talking about!) when my hands are warm or at all sweaty.
One thing to note is the wrist closures are quite snug, so they have to go inside my jacket sleeves.
Yes, I recommend this product.

This is a really solidly made piece of hardware, the fit and finish are spectacular.
However, the instructions that came with it were quite poor. I ended up looking online at instructions for several other eliminators instead before taking it all apart.

These gloves are made with what appears to be the finest quality kangaroo leather - and the stitching is perfect. The overall construction suggests that these will stand up quite well over time.
The fit is snug - I wear a medium (e.g. Joe Rocket) and the Helds fit a little snugger than those, but in a good way. I've only had them a few weeks, but they are very comfortable. The palms are thin and I feel like I have a very direct connection to the controls.
The airflow is phenomenal - the micro mesh in-between the fingers acts like an air conditioner! If you're looking for a great summer glove that gives you a bit more protection than the usual shorties, and with a lot more airflow (and comfort) than a full length gauntlet racing glove - grab a pair of these!
Yes, I recommend this product.
