Kriega R25 Backpack The Kriega R25 motorcycle backpack has a quick release QUADLOC harness, which is Kriega's own tried, tested and highly recommended system, unique to the rucksack industry. An innovative extremely efficient load-carrying system designed for motorcycle riders. Unlike conventional harness systems the load is carried on the hips chest, transferring the majority of the load away from the shoulders and thereby preventing the neck strain experienced with regular rucksacks. Ergonomically designed with no arm restriction for long distance comfort on a motorcycle. Features Main compartment - YKK oversize zip Side access pocket with 4-point load compression Internal magazine sleeve, which can accommodate a 14 laptop Internal key-clip SUPERSPACE 5mm airspace fabric Oversize YKK coil zips Upgraded harness to enable a wider range of rider to get the perfect Kriega fit Fully hydration compatible - reservoir relocated from outer pocket to main compartment Optional Kriega 3 Liter Hydrapak + Tube avaliable (sold separately) Hydration tube routes out and over the shoulder through a covered duct located top, center of the main compartment Reflective web loops on sides of pack to facilitate easier fastening of US-10 expansion pack Schoeller DYNATECH with integrated 3M Scotchlite reflectivity 1000D Dupont Cordura base harness 420D nylon ripstop - lightweight yet extremely strong CNC 6061-T6 alloy buckles Expanding outer pocket 10 year guarantee 25-liter capacity 520mm(H) x 300mm(W) x 160(D) mm

I already own a Kriega R15 backpack, but as I am leaving on a long trip in a couple of weeks, I needed something with more capacity. The Kriega R25, due to the quadloc harness fits even better and distributes the load more evenly than the R15.
I went on a ride and carried about 15 pounds in the pack and as many have already described, it felt like I did not even have a pack on. It does not shift, is extremely comfortable to wear and is easily adjustable to any body. As with all Kriega products the R25 is built well with use of very strong materials.
I highly recommend this product.
Ordering with Revzilla is easy and quick. Delivery is promptly.
It doesn't get any easier and better that that.

Yes, it is not exactly cheap, but is is also made rather well.
It easily attaches to any Kriega back packs in seconds and can make finding your essentials a no-brainer. I wear a one-piece race suit, which only has one small breast pocket, in which I keep all my paperwork. Once I have the R25 on it is rather difficult to get to that pocket without taking the back pack off. This is where the Kube comes in. It easily fits my wallet, my keys and my custom ear plug case with room to spare. Or you could fit a small and compact point and shoot camera and a smart phone, depending on model and size. Whatever you decide you need to be able to retrieve quickly, the Kube delivers. I just ordered a second one for the other side of the shoulder harness.

Plenty of room for knee braces and armored under pants.
The pockets on these pants are so small, I would not even know what to put in them. As I wear a bit of a longer jacket the zippered vents when opened all the way are rendered completely useless and do not add any air flow at all.
The construction is solid and good materials have been used.
The size chart does not match up for these pants, as they are a much older model and the sizing has since changed. The pants are very, very short and were not available in a long pant leg for my size. When seated on the bike, with feet on the pegs the bottom of the pant leg barely covers the tops of my Sidi mx boots, any other lower boots and your leg would be exposed. Keep that in mind if you have longer legs and a small waist or use touring boots with these pants. These will be handy for short in city trips, as they are comfortable to walk in.Looking forward to start using them more in the fall as they are a bit warm right now. A good deal for the sales price and as a secondary riding pant. Service and delivery, as always with Revzilla was quick and perfect.

I have just gotten back into street biking last year, after a long break of ten years. I was using my old Alpinestars SMX GoreTex boots when I realized how far along on a technical and safety stand point boots have come. The AStars had no lateral support and did not feel adequately safe anymore.
I have raced Supermoto for many years and I have seen what a broken foot or ankle looks like. During my racing years I had been sponsored by Sidi and always felt comfortable and safe in their boots and so I made a choice to stick with Sidi and try their ST boot. I wear a size 9.5 to 10 in regular shoes and the size 44 from Sidi fit me perfect. Absolutely no break-in time, felt super comfortable right out of the box. No mis-shifts, no slipping of the pegs. I like that I can adjust the calf diameter in a cinch, as I sometimes use riding pants that will go over the boots and other times my one-piece suit which goes inside the boots. In side by side comparison the Sidi boot is so much more stiffer without feeling like my foot is boxed in or hampered in any movement. I can not even feel the extra rigidity the boots provide, but it sure gives me a piece of mind.
Getting in and out the boots is very easy and quick. I just wish that they would import the GoreTex version that is available in Europe, as I now have to carry a set of rain covers for the boots. Overall the quality is great and I am very satisfied with my purchase. As always Revzilla's service is excellent

First of all thank you to all the reviewers that pointed out that this shorts run a size small. I went a size up when ordering and as most reviewers mentioned the waist fit was correct, but the leg openings are rather on the small size. I have just finished a 1000+ mile trip ranging from forty to nine five degree weather and I never even noticed wearing this shorts. The tailbone protection was not noticeable at all, even sitting on the bike for a three hour non-stop run. They do make me feel a lot safer and fit comfortable under my riding pants. They have broken in nicely and the leg openings have stretched out enough that they fit very well now. A good price for a peace of mind.

One of the small gripes about the BMW F800R is that the mirrors do not extend far enough out to give you a well enough view of what is behind you. As they are also not particular visually pleasing it was time for a change. I mounted CRG Arrow mirrors on both sides and accomplished multiple things:
the bike has a much cleaner and slick look; I can actually see everything clearly behind me. The image is very much distortion free, as well as vibration free, which was another culprit of the original mirrors. I highly recommend these mirrors. The quality is top notch.

Just returned form a thousand plus mile trip. I used the Kriega US-5 dry bag to attach to my Kriega R15 back pack.
Great way to stash things away that need to stay dry and out of the way. Once mounted onto the back pack it does not hinder the use of the back pack or get in the way of opening all the compartments of the back pack. Any items like electronics, wallet, etc. that need to stay dry will stay dry, as most of the Kriega back packs are water resistant but not waterproof.
It does what it says it does, that simple. Easy to use and easy to mount to the back pack. If you already own a Kriega back pack this is a no-brainer to add some extra carrying capacity and knowing that it will stay dry.

The fit and finish of the bag is great. It is also appreciate that it comes with its on rain cover which works well and does not flap around in the wind at higher speeds. The side expansions are easy to use and are very welcome as it is very easy to adjust your needed size depending on your trip and load requirements. Once the straps are in proper place the bag does not shift or move at all. The only caveat I have is that one has to be careful when taken the bag off, as the straps, which is the case with my bike, will hang on the exhaust and they would melt. I have dealt with that by pulling all the straps up and holding them together with a small bungee cord. Other than that I would highly recommend this bag. As always the service by Revzilla was best to none.

Installation was easy and quick. Everything fit perfect.
The craftsmanship and look of the slip-on is fantastic.
Gone finally is the giant oven pipe and replaced by a slender exhaust that looks and performs so much better.
The Leo Vince exhaust weighs less than half of the O.E.M. exhaust and saves over 5 and 1/2 pounds in weight.
Sound, with db-killer, is much improved. For my neighborhood and the fact that I leave rather early to work makes the use of the exhaust without the db-killer un-useable as it is just way too loud. I very much recommend this product.

Shark Speed-R Ike Helmet SHARK is proud to present a new philosophy. Utilizing all SHARKs expertise in safety, innovation and function the SPEED -R is a helmet specifically designed to meet the passionate demands of un-faired motorcycle riders. Double blade air spoiler positioned at the rear of the Speed-R, it allows the air to flow above and below the blade, hence the dual venturi effect to extract warm air from the helmet. Spoiler/stabilizer at its rear base trim the Speed-R has a spoiler, which stabilizes the helmet and the cancels the buffering effect. The immediate benefit is no air turbulence running inside the helmet and greater stability at a steady speed. Features Latest generation composite long fibre construction Integrated, drop down sun visor Extensive wind-tunnel testing to perfect aerodynamics and ventilation system for use with naked road bikes Double cavity rear spoiler creates faster air circulation to drastically reduce fogging Rear deflector stabilizer reduces helmet buffeting Faceshield varies in thickness and is optically correct, scratch resistant and anti-fog coated Completely remove and washable COOLMAX lining Shark Easy Fit glasses system offers wearers a comfort lining which has a pre-tted system to accommodate all types of glasses ECE 2205 and DOT approved Two shell sizes

I have tried and used many different helmet brands and always had issues with proper fit. Besides the Suomy helmets this is the only other brand that fit well and is right away comfortable.
Nice plush interior with cut-outs for wearing glasses.
A little heavier of a helmet, but I knew this when I purchased the helmet, as it has the additional sun visor feature, which works great and is easy to use. Airflow is good, but not great.
Vision is excellent. Very little wind buffeting, but I have not been on the track yet at high speeds. Overall very good fit and finish.
Yes, I recommend this product.
