My wife wanted a stylish helmet to ride passenger with me.
She had a couple requirements:
- not full face because she didn't want to feel closed in
- had eye protection built in so she didn't have to wear goggles
- lightweight with a 'hip' european style that matched her brown leather boots
- fit her tiny head
This helmet ended up being perfect and at $80 feels like a steal!
One of the only helmets out there that went down in size to an XS that actually fit her. The 'bronze' color is really a nice matte brown, its not like a copper/orange or anything, so it matches a leather look nicely, and even has a little leather-ish "mohawk" part.
The built in visor is nice for eye protection, but it does allow a lot of air and noise to reach the face. Not a big deal since my wife can hide from the wind behind me, but it doesn't seem like you'd want to face the wind as a rider with this helmet if your bike doesn't have a windscreen fairing.
We ended up getting the dark visor for this as well, which looks a lot cooler, and installing was easy.
The AGV helmet quality is there all around, and the Diesel styling gives it the look my wife wanted. Ironically enough, my helmet is the AGV/Diesel Hi-Jack helmet so we kind of match.

Needed a better bag for my daily work commute to carry the usual things like lunch, a change of clothes and shoes, notebooks, misc electronics.
Then potentially something I could really load up for a road trip.
This seemed to fit the bill without being too large.
Been using the bag for a couple weeks, and its great.
It took a little back and forth with the straps to get the shoulder strap length and chest clips just right to where even a very heavy load doesn't rest on my shoulders, but compresses comfortably at the rib cage/sternum , but once you get it right, it really makes a difference.
I could ride for hours and the backpack would be the last thing on my mind.
I do want to also mention something small, but important with this bag, the high quality of the zippers. I've used plenty of backpacks for school, work, travel, and when you really load them up, the failure point quickly becomes the zipper as you try and close it when the rest of the bag is stretched full. The rubbery seal at the seam between the zipper and the bag fabric on this bag makes a huge difference here, and I can tell these zippers will take the abuse of repeatedly having to zip closed with a full bag.
Very happy with this bag!

I really like these gloves.
The leather in the palm and fingers is thin, supple and comfortable.
The textile back of the hand with overmolded rubber knuckles protectors has a cool techy style and leaves the glove feeling very light and maneuverable with good airflow. Really clever how they worked the icon branding into it in a subtle way.
The sizing is a bit odd, so I ended up with a glove that is a tad loose in the fingers. I tried stepping down a size, but that ended up being too narrow at the wrist and palm.
I actually kind of like the loose finger now because as its gotten colder, I can slip a thin liner glove underneath and I don't lose circulation or feel cramped. And its never been so loose that it caused me any issues at the controls.

So my wife wanted a stylish vintage looking moto glove to match her brown leather boots when she rode on back with me, and these definitely fit the bill styling wise.
Unfortunately the Women's version of this glove no longer has the brown leather option available, so we thought we could just size down the men's version.
Took a couple tries, and the fit is still a little wide on the palm and wrist even at the right length. Overall she likes the style, and the leather quality is definitely there, and its not like she needs a perfect fit to use the controls so she's happy.
But just wanted to give any lady riders the heads up that these gloves definitely have a wider man's fit to them.
Also, keep in mind shipping time, as these took many weeks to arrive from Dianese.

I looked at a bunch of balaclavas before deciding on this one, mostly based on the reviews of the Dianese quality and materials used, and I'm happy to say that the reviews were correct.
This balaclava has a great combination of materials on the cheek, nose, and chest area to maximize warmth and comfort. And the seams are well done.
Have already used this on rides with a 3/4 helmet in the high 40's weather we are starting to see in the mornings and I was totally comfortable. I do have to fold down a little section of the nose to avoid fogging up my glasses and my helmets visor, but anything which keeps warm breath near your eyes will do that.
This balaclava will also make a great piece of snowboarding base layer gear as well!
Overall happy I went with a Dianese piece over some of the cheaper options.

These feel tough while still being comfortable. Good support/guards on ankle, heel, and toe areas. Stylish enough to keep on while walking around town, nobody would even know they're riding shoes. I'm really happy with them.
They run a little large on sizing, I had to exchange for a size down, but RevZilla makes that super easy so no biggie..

keeps my hands warm and dry for fall riding. will need something warmer for the winter. fit is snug and comfortable. quality is definitely all there on the seams and details.
they look so nice you don't feel weird wearing them as regular gloves around town after you get off the bike.
if i had to make a negative comment it would be that you do have to take them off a little carefully sou you dont pull the liner out from inside the fingers.. and where the tags are on the inside of the cuff makes it easy for the tags to pop out from under the glove when you put them on.

Awesome style. Nice comfortably snug fit. Love the retracting visor which fits over my glasses and goes around my nose so no more foggy face shield. The satin/flat black finish is well done. Perfect piece of gear for my blacked out moped style.

Love this visor and the Hi-Jack helmet.
My ONLY negative comment is that a soft fabric pouch or slim plastic case was kind of expected for the additional visor, but no such luck. With the idea that the rider would want to swap out a clear and smoked visor for day/night riding, you're probably going to carry the second visor with you in your bag and would want a way to not scratch it up. At the price, it should be a given.

Been using this oil on a 70cc kitted up Tomos moped.
Belray Synthetic oil doesn't smoke like other 2 stroke oils can, and the extra lubrication lets you run your 50:1 mix closer to 70:1. The nifty pour spout top is a nice feature on the bottles too!
