They're a little pricey, but these grips were the best option for me as I needed a new throttle tube. The install is incredibly easy and straightforward, and I like the solution they have which avoids using any grip glue -- fits fine on my 2003 cbr600rr.
Item of note -- the little slits in the grip show the underlying material as red, but this isn't the case. They're actually grey (barely visible anyway).
As far as comfort goes, I have no complaints. They feel like any other gel/rubber grips.
Yes, I recommend this product.

The Airmada is a fantastic helmet. I was deliberating between this helmet and the Shoei RF-1100 and the Bell RS-1. I ended up going with this, and I'm glad I did.
Pros...
EXCEPTIONAL airflow for summer weather. Really can't stress this enough. Feels almost like you're riding with an open face helmet when you have all the vents open.
Quiet. This helmet, thanks to its really tight neckroll, makes it way quieter than your average helmet. For the price you pay, it's hard to find this level of noise reduction. There is a slight whistle due to the pin lock if you turn your head all the way to the side, though.
Style. This speaks for itself. The Saliet design gets a million compliments... it looks cool in every color. The black version has a slight "sparkle" to the black paint compared to the others (checked in-store).
Stability. Try doing a headcheck at 100 mph with this thing on and you'll be wondering why you don't feel the helmet sliding or buffeting around. It stays FIRMLY in place.
Cons...
On/Off: This thing is a little painful to get on and off. You get used to it, and it's VERY comfortable once on. But taking on and off -- feels like your ears are gonna rip off. I'm ok with that.
Pin lock: I find this to be a slight annoyance. It makes opening the shield take a little extra effort compared to others.
Shield swap system: Not as easy as AGV's design. It's relatively quick, but with the sideplates on the shield, it's difficult to line up the mechanisms.
Overall: For $250 ($180 for solid colors) this helmet is simply UNBEATABLE in its class. Highly recommend. Fantastic helmet by Icon. Check out my picture (red helmet).
Yes, I recommend this product.

This bag performs fantastically. I was impressed with the build quality on everything from the zippers to the stitching. It seems extremely durable.
Few items of note -- It's not waterproof, and it's a lot smaller than you think it is. For size reference, you should be able to fit a pair of small shoes inside it but not much else.
The external compression strap is a nice touch for holding a few extra items.
The backpack straps work, and fold up and fit inside the internal velcro or outside zipper pocket. Nothing fancy. Carrying handle on the bag is very convenient.
There are a lot of little touches that make this bag nice, but I just wish it were a LITTLE bit bigger.
Yes, I recommend this product.

The Forcefield back protector is a worthy alternative to getting the Dainese Wave in your jacket. I've tried both, and I've ridden with this one in hot (90F +) weather.
Compared to the Wave, this Forcefield back protector:
Is much lighter.
Is much smaller and less detectable.
Offers better protection.
Is reusable after a crash.
Flows slightly LESS air / less comfortable in hot weather.
Does not create an insulation pocket like the Wave in cold weather.
Fits slightly loose in the jacket.
I wear this with my Dainese Shotgun Jacket for summer riding, and I don't notice it anymore.
Yes, I recommend this product.

This tailbag looks fantastic and flows nicely with a sport bike (currently have it on my CBR600RR). It's the exact size of the rear passenger seat and seems to fit well with the style of the bike.
You won't be able to fit much more than a sneaker inside it, though. I use it daily for transporting my disc lock around and small essentials. Waterproof cover is quick, convenient, and... waterproof. Take a look at my picture (red cbr600rr).
Yes, I recommend this product.

This disc lock works exactly as advertised. I got it in bright yellow paint, however, and the paint peels off even with a fingernail scratch. It's not powder-coated.
Other than that cosmetic issue, the alarm functions perfectly. It seems to be of a very durable base metal. The XX-6 model fits on my 2003 CBR600RR front disc like a glove, in case anyone was curious about fitment issues. Good luck trying to jam it in the back seat though. That's not happening with any ease.
Yes, I recommend this product.

For the rider who's not looking to scream to the world that he rides, and for the rider who's looking for everyday street protection with added style and "regular-shoe" comfort, these shoes are the perfect match. I can and often do wear them even when I'm not riding. They look terrific with a pear of jeans.
Although these are technically boots and contain riding-specific protection in the heel, ankle, and toe, they look and feel like casual old-school chucks with some modern style.
The waterproof liner restricts airflow, although it IS breathable. Your feet won't be any "sweatier" than wearing regular work boots.
Also -- although it says Men, they're pretty much unisex. My girlfriend rocks the blue suede version, and they look great on her.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Shotgun Jacket:
Beautiful styling.
Perfect fit and comfort.
Best of all: The positioning of the air vent intakes for this jacket concentrates the air induction into your body at the hottest areas: the chest, armpits, and arms... and channels it directly out your lower back. It doesn't look like there's much ventilation compared to some summer jackets, but it functions like magic.
If you're looking for a functional and cool summer jacket that doesn't sacrifice comfort, protection, or style -- this is it. But, get a back protector.
Yes, I recommend this product.

The Reactor 3.0 Jacket is, in a lot of ways, similar to the Reactor 2.0 Jacket (see reviews) in terms of feel and function. It's a mesh jacket primarily, with leather adornments in the shoulders, elbow/forearms, and across the chest. The removable liner is not breathable, so it's not really worth wearing unless it's raining. It will keep you dry, but you'll sweat.
The jacket has a very cool, "old-school" mixed with modern, aggressive style to it, and it's definitely a generous american cut... I'm 5'10" and 150 lbs, so I'm skinny, and the jacket, Size SMALL, has a lot of extra space in the gut area and there are various fabric bulges here and there (see attached pictures), but it's not uncomfortable. You can use the waist adjustments to help it a little bit, but not very much. This fit issue is really my only dislike about the jacket, but it's not enough to make it uncomfortable. The zippers on the wrists are an excellent touch that help with comfort when wearing gloves or for extra arm airflow when it's too hot.
As a mesh construction, this jacket will definitely keep you cool enough in the hot summer weather, but with the added leather panels, it probably won't be the VERY best for those 100+ degree days. On the other hand, you can probably stretch this jacket further than other mesh jackets into the spring and fall, and you're getting a lot more protection than most mesh jackets.
Still an excellent successor to the Reactor 2.0, with tons of features, like reflective piping in the back, inside pockets, and belt-loop / pants connect zippers in the back.
Yes, I recommend this product.
