AltRider Triumph Tiger 800 / XC Luggage Rack The AltRider Luggage Rack for the Triumph Tiger 800/XC is a must-have part, whether you ride on or off. Manufactured in the USA from 3/16 inch (4.75mm) thick anodized aluminum, it incorporates side flanges for extra strength and rigidity. The strategic cut-outs provide places to lash down your load with anything from straps to bungee cords to tie downs. AltRider ensured that every hole allows any hook to pass completely through the luggage rack for a secure attachment. All cut-outs feature a premium CNC routered edge to provide a smooth and a clean finish. If you are interested in using a top case, the AltRider Luggage Rack interfaces with the Givi Monokey System, allowing attachment with a mount kit no need for the additional cost of an adapter plate. The AltRider Givi Monokey Luggage Rack Topcase Mounting Kit is sold separately and allows Givi Monokey topcases to mount to the rack. The rack also provides an interface with the Rotopax Pack system , so you can easily bring extra gas, water, emergency supplies, or even tools. Already have the Triumph OEM soft tail bag No problem, the AltRider luggage rack provides cut-outs that make attachment easy, and scoot the placement further back so theres room for a pillion. Specifications Made of 3/16 inch (4.75 mm) thick anodized aluminum Interfaces with the Givi Monokey top case system Interfaces with the Rotopax Fuel system Height 3 inches Width 14 inches Depth 14 inches Weight 3 lbs

Givi cases fit - all you need is kit. Good looking rack if no case. You WILL have to drill out at least one screw hole to get it on bike. (Triumph Tiger 800xc)
Yes, I recommend this product.

I have worn the same Fieldsheer model for three years, maybe 15,000 mi. Its is my go-to in the summer. Removed back armor and cut out a few pocket liners to give me the most ventilated jacket with some armor. It was getting worn and too many bug stains. This is the updated model with two liners, but still the same large hole mesh which is the only one I can find like it. So happy they are still making it.
Looks good, fits great and best ventilated. I've tried at least three other brands of ventilated, they are not as 'cool'.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Nolan N104 Helmet - Solid Colors Nolan N104 Helmets represent an evolutionary step for Nolan as they replace the much touted N103 Helmet. When compared the older N103, the Nolan N104 Helmet offers a helmet which is much lighter (7oz), features a lower profile through the use of multiple shell sizes, better aerodynamics, as well as a much larger viewport for increased visibility. The (patented) chin guard rotation movement with elliptical trajectory makes it possible to keep the total size of the helmet's front section to a minimum when the chin guard is open. The sail effect is consequently highly reduced, and riding comfort is still guaranteed, even when the chin guard is lifted. The new ultrawide eyeport is the largest of any Nolan helmet, both vertically and laterally, for maximum field of view. The AIRBOOSTER ventilation system is equipped with an air intake in the chin bar, another intake in the brow, and two rear extractors at the rear. The inner comfort lining includes removable cheekpads, inner liner, neckroll and chin curtain and is easily removable and washable as well as antifungal and antibacterial. New, redesigned comfort liner also accommodates eyeglasses much more easily than before. All Nolan N104 helmets are also N-COM B4 ready ( N-COM B4 is designed expressly for the N104 and is sold separately). Shell Features Injected polycarbonate GE Lexan shell 7oz lighter than the Nolan N103 Two Shell engineering allows Nolan N104 to offer sizes from 2XS to 3XL (2XS-LG and XL-3XL) Dimensionally correct sizing allows ample cubic volume in chin/nose area Faceshield Features Face shields are now sized to fit the two different shell sizes (2XS-LG and XL-3XL) Ultra wide eye port opening is the largest on any Nolan helmet for superior visibility Shield is changed by a simple push button mechanism Pinlock shield included with each helmet VPS (Vision Protection System) is new slider bar to lower, push button release for instant retraction VPS lens is scratch and fog resistant Chin Bar Features Centromatic chin guard opening mechanism requires dual action, simultaneous action to prevent accidental opening Dual action opening mechanism is positioned in the centre of the chin guard and allows for easy, one-handed opening Ventilation N104 has new AIRBOOSTER ventilation system, ensures optimal ventilation where is is most required Air intake in the chin guard draws air in and onto the inside of the faceshield 3 position top vent (closed, crown vent, crown/brow vent) 2 venturi exhaust ports at rear of helmet New plastic vent tube channels in EPS disperse cool air throughout the helmet interior Inner Liner Features removable cheek pads, inner liner, neck roll and wind protector The inner padding of the new N104 is easily removable and washable and antibacterial The shape of the inner comfort padding facilitates eyeglass wearing Reflective insert at the centre of the roll neck further improves the rider's visibility at night Neck roll can be removed easily, for more comfort in the warmer months Other Features N-Com Communication System compatible (sold separately) Features new Microlock2 quick-release retention system Microlock2 consists of a plastic ergonomic opening lever, and of a second aluminium toothed and holding lever Microlock2 minimizes the possibility of unintentional opening while still making it ergonomic and easy to use Meets or exceeds D.O.T. standards

My third helmet: HJC was the only one to fit my giant head. The Nolan 2XL is tight, but is breaking in. No long rides yet but I find no pressure points and think it will be fine. Very attractive, everything works like it should, it's a definite upgrade from HJC.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Hard to make up my mind. Fix the BMW seat? Add an ontop cushion? Send in seat to be modified?
Forget all those options and just pay the money and buy this seat. OMG
Sit down and ride your BMW and quit worrying about when you have to stop and rest. Now you can ride w the cruisers.
Wow, this is best add to my bike since windshield and cruise control!

 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

I was looking for a protective boot to use in the hot summer. This was the only one I found. Got the white, it's a little gay but when you're off the bike they look like tennis shoes, instead of clunky work boots. Comfortable and my feet don't sweat as much as 100% leather. Been wearing 'Smart Wool' socks, they seem to be better than cotton. No negatives, they're a little hard to get on and off, but that's part of their protection, I presume.
Pros Rugged, Comfortable, Fashionable
Yes, I recommend this product.
