So far I have no complaints.
It's easy to put on and off, has nice build quality, and works well.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I took it out on a ride and was very impressed.
The backpack actually streamlines the back and gets rid of the turbulent feel. Maybe it's just in my head, but the ride felt smoother on the highway with the backpack on.
Fit and finish, quality, and design is all top notch and the compartments are very convenient.
It isn't the largest of backpacks and I was a bit worried about the capacity, but has worked well for me so far.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I love the design. a striking look without being flashy.
The fit and comfort is great. feels noticeably lighter than my other helmets when worn.
Pinlock anti-fog works well in day and night conditions, not sure why it is designated for daytime use only. Works great at night without any negative effects for me.
The sun visor also works well.
The only downside would be the price. Obviously, it is not six times better than a $100 helmet from a practical/functional point of view. But I am happy with what I have, as there is no other helmet I would rather have.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I like the build quality of this link pipe and the resonator, which gives the exhaust note a low growl.
The ability to put the stock shield piece on is also a plus.
Yes, I recommend this product.

 Icon Tarmac Ventilated Boots
Icon Tarmac Ventilated Boots
Sometimes a name says it all-'Ventilated Riding Shoe'. Built on an ultra comfortable athletic bottom unit, the Tarmac is up to the challenge of the mean summertime streets. Internally the Tarmac is heaven, built around a wicked outsole for a custioned ride but reinforced with an Axialmetric steel shank. But externally is where the Tarmac really shines. The chassis is built from a street-proof combination of action leather and ultra-durable vented Rocpro mesh. Heel, toe, and ankle plastic plates combine to serve and protect. The hidden constant tension lacing system provides killer fit while keeping the eyestay area snag free. If you've ever hooked your shoe laces in your shifter than you know all about the necessity of this feature. Finally, forefoot and ankle straps keep the whole shoe on lockdown should the unfortunate occur. Lightweight leather/nylon construction Quick-fit elastic foot retention system Plastic toe and heel guards Full length steel shank Footpeg interface arch Floating ankle armor Breathable textile panels Anti-slip rubber compound Cushioned eva midsole Padded high-top pattern Imported

the only problem i have with this product is that there is not much adjustment available on the ankle strap.
it looks like it should be able to strap tighter or looser, but it is actually pretty much pre-configured and you won't be able to close the velcro much tighter than where it is already folded.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Icon Airframe Victory Death or Glory Helmet
Some live their life in moderation - a careful balancing act devoid of excess. And that's fine, the world needs those people. Then there are those who are destined to leave their mark on history's pages. Those courageous (or stupid) souls who know no such balance. For those few it's all or nothing. A pure digital lifestyle - Zero or One, Black or White, Death or Glory. DOT and Snell M2005 Approved Fiberglass/Dyneema/Carbon fiber shell Imported Rubatone Finish-Rubatone paint is a special formula of rubberized polymers and vivid color. A helmet finish like no other...this rubberized grippy surface was developed for the sole purpose of matcing your riding gear. Its flat appearance and distinct feel give you the street style that you've been looking for.

these pairs are sturdy on the top side, but not as sturdy on the bottom as i had hoped. the leather feels kind of thin.
however, they are very very comfortable and quick to wear and light and a good pair to wear in the rain, so i find myself wearing these gloves for a quick ride around the town all the time.
