Clearly better than stock on the 2014 FJR1300, it still produces slight buffeting in the almost fully-up position. But at speed, bringing it down a bit more than you would think produces a flow of clean air at the top of my helmet visor for nice cruising and good ventilation through the helmet. And the light tint looks great on my bike.

Pirelli Angel GT Rear Tires Pirelli dbuted the new Angel GT Tires on Basque soil in Bilbao, Spain accompanying the newest edition of the Multistrada 1200 S Granturismo. The new Angel GT Sport Touring tire will be standard equipment on the latest version of the Borgo Panigale model. The Angel GT boasts 15 percent more mileage than the Pirelli Angel ST without sacrificing performance. Pirelli has labeled this as Performance Mileage. The primary design was to provide regular wear and excellent water drainage guaranteed by both the front tires and by the new groove design on the rear. Pirelli is using a dual blend compound that allows for high mileage in the center with a higher percentage of silica on the sides offering maximum performance, even in wet conditions. In the end, the Pirelli Angel GT is a great option for long distance riders with a fully loaded bike, or for those who are looking to optimize performance on their short daily getaways. From sport bikes to touring and everything in between the Angel GT will not disappoint. Features (W)-rated for speeds of 168+ mph Ideal for sport riders looking for increased mileage without sacrificing grip and traction Extended Mileage Sport (EMS) tires provide best-in-class for mileage and grip Rear tires feature new Bi-compound formula that improves cornering traction A Spec rear tires feature a reinforced, 2-ply carcass Improved wet grip Tubeless

Too soon to tell about tread life, and I have not yet ridden in the rain with these tires. However, I really like the grip on my GSX 1250 FA, and I can tell a difference in how my bike handles.

For the cost this product is not great quality and the buttons are hard to work wearing gloves. Also, the thermometer function doesn't seem to work very well. It ought to be a $10 or $15 item.

This is one of those products that actually exceeded my expectations. The install took about 20 - 30 minutes. The pairing with my iPhone was a breeze. Call quality was better than I expected, and streaming audio isn't great, but it's pretty darn good. I can't speak to durability yet, but after one significant road trip, so far so good.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I wanted some understated riding boots that I could actually wear off the bike at my destination and not look like a dork. These really fit the bill. The only negative is the insoles are not high quality. I replaced them with a $15 pair of decent insoles from the sporting goods store, which work great with the boots. With that minor adjustment, the boots are great.
Yes, I recommend this product.
