I already have the prior SMH5 kit. I bought this ad a replacement. It's nice to listen to the news when stuck in traffic. Sound quality seems to be better too, according to my wife.

No pinlock insert for this Bell helmet? No problem!

I bought this winter kit for my motorcycle helmet because this particular model doesn't have a pinlock insert available and I ride in colder weather here in DC where my faceshield can get really fogged up during morning commutes. So, I saw this snowmobile conversion kit for my helmet and thought I'd give it a try. Works like a charm, although I wish the faceshield would click down into place for added security. Nonetheless, the double-layered faceshield NEVER fogs. The breatheguard keeps my facial area warm as well, but has a tendency to build up moisture if you are on a longer than 30 minute ride (my commutes are 1-1.25 hours each way). Like someone said before, you do lose a little peripheral vision, but I turn my head to check my six everytime I switch lanes just out of habit and paranoia.

Without the pinlock insert, the visor really fogs up. The pinlock insert really helps in cold weather morning commutes. There is no more fog at all. The only thing that sucks is the IS-17 helmet's inner sun visor fogs up! Otherwise, I'm pleased with the results. You can't even tell it's there. Easy installation.

This is for the visor and not the helmet (which I love). The OEM built-in sun visor is light smoke, which really is not dark enough. So, I bought this dark smoke inner visor and it helps. It could still be a little darker. However, it fogs like a steam engine during cold commutes. But, combine this with the pinlock insert and you are good to go!

I would gladly give up performance grip for longer lasting tires.I got 7500 miles out of my first set. But I plan on taking long trips. The tires are expensive as well! We need more choices. Pirelli owns Diavel owners! At least I could use my earned Revzilla cash for a discount and the buying experience was so easy.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Easy install. But, speakers become worthless past 65 mph which is when I'll need them on the highway with my wife in tow. Around town, they are perfect. Pretty easy to use after you get the hang of it. After pairing your phone, you gotta wait a few seconds when you first power on to get the "phone paired" message. I bought the upgraded speakers for my trip.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Icon Elsinore Boots The Icon 1000 Elsinore's five-strap, alloy-buckle chassis, stamped metal heel plate, and internal steel shank combine for a serious dose of moto-x homage. The traditional Goodyear welt construction mates the Icon street-specific sole to the magnificent leather upper. A medial entry zipper, allocated from Paratrooper jump boots, is the only luxury the Elsinore will allow itself. A modern relic from an era when men were iron and tanks were steel. The Elsinore, old-school MX reinterpreted for the urban sprawl. Features 12 top grain leather upper Goodyear welt construction Icon cast metal buckles Icon stamped metal heel plate Heat pressed leather shifter panel Heat pressed molded leather shin plate Internal ankle protection Axialmetric steel shank YKK Zippers

...time will tell if these boots will last. The black boots don't look anywhere near as worn and weathered as they do in the pictures. The stitching is in bright yellow and the finish is like a pair of new Doc Marten's. Maybe over time the boots will develop a more vintage look like they appear in the pictures.
The boots are stiff out of the box. I wore them everywhere for about a week to break them in. They fit well now. But, the toe area is high and the flex in the ankles is still a bit too stiff to get my toe under the shifter of my Ducati Diavel. In fact, the shifter is hitting just a bit forward of that leather toe pad on the boot. Again, time will tell if this gets better with wear. Don't expect any ventilation. Your dogs are gonna sweat along with your calves.
Still, these boots really look cool and have some nice features like the shin protection and ankle pads. The zipper makes for super easy on-off. The leather is nice and thick. The buckles allow for plenty of adjustment to get the perfect fit.
Yes, I recommend this product.
