Oxford Heaterz Premium Adventure Heated Grips The Oxford Heaterz Premium Adventure heated handlebar grips are made especially for adventure bikes. The grips have ergonomically engineered surface structures to optimize riding performance. Thicker rubber in areas of maximum wear rhombus tread patterns for high levels of grip and feel diamond tread pattern where maximum grip is required. What really sets the Oxford Heaterz apart The answer is many tried and tested features such as the silicon cables which provide flexibility in the coldest weathers and the winter grade wiring prevents cracking and short circuits the bonded grip design has been in use for many years and is well proven the grip compound and thermo plastic rubber construction is designed to absorb vibration making them extremely comfortable and durable, often outlasting standard grips and the silicone wires that come from the grip are angled to eliminate water ingress and resulting corrosion/ice damage and have special unique internal supports which are heat shrunk together to prevent damage if the wires are snagged. In addition, five carefully chosen heat settings allow the perfect temperature to be selected in ALL weathers and most importantly, the switch will switch off if the voltage drops to 10.5V to ensure that the battery is not damaged to the point that it cannot be recharged to full capacity. Easier than ever to install due to the new intelligent heat controller eliminating any need to wire the positive to a live ignition feed simply connect the 2 ring connectors to the battery. You'll find everything supplied by Oxford to fit your Heaterz from a wiring loom with ring connectors to the battery with simple plug and play connectors to attach to the switch and grips, smart mounting bracket and switch right down to the glue and cable ties all neatly packaged in one box. Features Fits most 7/8 handlebars Sealed for life 5 heat settings give the perfect operating temperature with LED lights to indicate the level Up to 122F (50C) Rainproof switch Draws under 4A Miniaturized electronics Simpler wiring Sonically welded 2 year warranty

So I finally got my grips right . I will say that <other vendor> was decent about refunding me after they shipped the wrong part and I installed it. Took about a month. Ended up getting the Oxford Adventure grips from Revzilla. Don't know why I didn't go there first. Revzilla is the best online retailer.
The supplied controller bracket can be mounted on the left mirror stem by drilling a hole in the bracket and threading the mirror stem through it. It's a very handy location.
I wired mine to an FZ1 fuze box, key-on circuit. The harnesses are longer than necessary for the S-10. I chose to bundle and hide mine rather than trim to fit.
The controller defaults to OFF, so you can't leave it on between power cycles. The 5 heat level settings are indicated by individual LEDs. 30% is green, 100% is red, the other 3 are blue. So at night, you can't tell visually whether you're in 40%, 50% or 70%. No matter, your hands are the judge.
I also installed Pro Taper Contour Mid ATV bars. The knurling on the left bar end needs to be filed down in order to get the Oxfords on. For the rest of the controls, you either have to file down the plastic locating nubs or drill holes in the bar. I went nub-less.
I have heated gloves and jacket liner. When it's cold, heated grips and heated gloves are the hot ticket. Most cold days, gloves alone are the better choice. You don't always ride with winter gear, so when you're surprised by the cold, it's nice to have the heated grips always available.

Fit
Small
Slightly Large

I compare this jacket to a 4-year old Olympia AST hi-viz and a Tourmaster Transition, less than 1 year.
Fit - I find the fit runs big for a size large. My dimensions are: 6-ft tall, 34-in inseam, 34-in arm length, 15-in neck, weight 162-lbs. It's summertime, so I'm wearing without liners, adjustment tabs tightened. I only notice the fit when putting it on. Even the sleeves are long, when standing. Once riding, the jacket disappears and the sleeve length is fine. I tried the jacket on with all the liners in and it didn't feel so large. Knowing that I'll run it that way in the cold weather, I expect a looser fit in the summer. That's the price of all-season garments.
Pros: Very little hook and loop fastener. Yea!
Venting panels are much better than slit openings. It vents well while offering far better protection than all-mesh jackets.
Collar - much improved over the AST.
Fashion - people tell me this jacket is handsome.
Design - The placement of the hi-viz portions is just about ideal - much better than the AST, which has more hi-viz material but not in the most visible sections.
Cons: Pockets too small. I can barely fit my wallet into the lower pockets, forget about gloves.
The chest pockets are part of the panels that fold down to expose the mesh, so they are essentially gone when the front vent panels are open.
Other: Gadgets - the built-in.5-liter hydration pack is a design balancing act. Enough capacity to make it worthwhile is too heavy. So it won't last all day, but having a sip here and there is a real relief. I can wear this while riding with my pillion whereas an external hydration pack is too bulky.
Zip-off fanny pouch - The tail pouch is pretty standard adventure jacket style fare, so good that it's there, but the idea of zipping it off to carry as a man-purse is a non-starter. No harm really.
Quality - Thanks to Revzilla's sale that reduced the X-Moto's price by a third, it became affordable. I have to say that my 4-year old AST is still a better jacket than my 8-month old Transition (that cost less than a third of the AST). The difference is better design, materials, and construction. So I'm confident that the X-Moto will serve me well for a long time.

I bought this kit (2) only for the footman loops. Probably could have sourced the individual bits at a hardware store, but there is value in a kit that has everything you need in one shot. I mounted the loops, 4-each, to the lids of my Jesse panniers in order to secure a small duffel to each lid. These were the perfect solution.

Wolfman Expedition Dry Saddle Bags Wolfman went all out to create the Expedition Dry Saddlebags. They designed these bags to be durable and 100 waterproof for the most adventurous and aggressive riders around. Wolfman started with burly 22 ounce and 34 ounce vinyl, and used cutting-edge Radio Frequency technology for completely sealed seams. Next, they developed an ultra-stable mounting system. These sturdy bags attach to the proprietary Wolfman Side Racks with what is possibly the easiest mounting system available. These 100 waterproof bags seal out dust, mud and odors. Ideal in any climate, from the Wet Pacific Northwest, Rainy Emerald Isle, to dry dusty climates, and all weather in between. Roll-top closures seal the bags and make it easy to adjust capacity to suit your gear. The bags have two straps over the seat and each bag attaches to the Wolfman Side Rack at 4 points for maximum hold. The mounting straps double as compression straps to keep the load attached and tight. Wolfman also use an internal Butterfly stiffener, stiff back, bottom and front, which helps the bag retain shape and allows the load to be compressed tightly. Features 100 Waterproof fabric - 22oz body and 34oz bottom Waterproof roll-top with no-wick webbing Multi Compression straps to cinch the load tight Recycled tire-rubber backing pad Extra tall opening for size adjustability Tough, functional luggage protects your gear Radio Frequency welded no-leak seams Roll-top closures seal out the elements Waterproof top webbing won't wick in water Sold as a pair Made in the USA Dimensions Length 13 Width 7 Height 13 adjustable about 3 more Capacity 38 liters per pair - 19 liters each The extra tall opening can adjust to add 2 or more liters per bag

All Wolfman products are excellent.
The mounting straps and closure straps are a bit fiddly, will probably get the hang of it after a few uses. The liner/stiffeners are a good idea but the execution is more bother than its worth. I hear a proper sized plastic trash can, trimmed to fit, is the bomb.
These bags are tough and they position the load low and forward, better than a big duffel on the tail.

The Kube Pocket may have some value if you have absolutely no pockets on your jacket. Otherwise it's not a good value and is a bit of an abberation hanging off the pack. It's not a hard case so not recommended for glasses even if they do fit inside. It's not sized right for a wallet or most smartphones, so honestly, I can't figure a use for it.

Pros
Quality materials, robust construction, thoughtful design. Harness system is easy to use and adjustable.
Cons
There really are no flaws. If I had to niggle, I would prefer a dual zipper on the main compartment. At least it's heavy duty. Also would prefer some genuine retro-reflectivity rather than just a shiny patch.
Comments -
At its price point, you're paying for more than just a back pack. Hopefully it will still be working well 10 years from now.
Design -
The R25 harness system is unique and interesting, but is it really any better than the standard backpack fare with shoulder straps, waist belt, and maybe a chest strap? Oddly enough, I found its big brother R35 to be extraordinarily stable, too bad I couldn't live with the zipper harness fastener. The R25 has a couple of easy to use clasps as part of their Quadloc system, better than anything else that clicks together.
There is one exterior zipper compartment that is the perfect size for a couple of small, nylon "envelopes" that make up my "man purse". They're semi-permanent fixtures in the pack while everything else goes in and out of the main compartment on a daily basis. Nice, wide opening makes that easy. Compression straps keep things from getting wiggly.
Fit and comfort -
Have been wearing this pack for a week of daily commuting and not sure if the fit is dialed in yet. I'm very used to pack belts around my waist and am unsure about having the support point moved up to my solar plexus. It's not uncomfortable, but maybe not any better either.
Accessories -
US5 and Kube Pocket.
The US5 attaches neatly to the rear of the R25 and offers modest additional storage. Unfortunately, mounting it covers the only rear-facing shiny patch. At least the Kriega logo is still available, and you paid for it. The logo and shiny patch should swap positions. I don't see myself keeping the US5 mounted on the pack as it's mostly unnecessary bulk. Hope to find a good use for it because it's nifty.
The Kube Pocket may have some value if you have absolutely no pockets on your jacket. Otherwise it's not a good value and is a bit of an abberation hanging off the pack. It's not a hard case so not recommended for glasses even if they do fit inside. It's not sized right for a wallet or most smartphones, so honestly, I can't figure a use for it.
I realize my review is not as glowing as many. Perhaps it should be as a justification for the price, or maybe the price makes me more critical. Bottom line - good pack, I think it's a keeper.

Shoei Neotec Modular Helmet Evolving on previous designs, Shoei has revamped its modular helmet style with a streamlined and attractively sculpted shape that conveys the feel of freely moving through the outdoors in the Neotec Modular Helmet. Overall shell size is kept compact by incorporating the internal sun visors open/close mechanism inside all ventilation mechanisms are shaped and positioned in such a way as to reduce any possible drag. A redesigned aerodynamic spoiler also helps to cut lift, reducing neck strain on long, cross country rides. In the Shoei Neotec all these features combine to create a premium helmet that excels in appearance, protection, comfort and performance. The Shoei Neotec Helmet's chin bar is connected to the same axis point and mechanism as its shield, minimizing extra parts. This also enables simultaneous closing of the shield with the chin bar, which is then held in place with an easy-open lock release button. The shield lock system offers secure closure or the ability to keep the shield slightly open to allow for increased airflow. With the Shoei Neotec Helmet, Shoei now includes a built-in sun shield, the QSV-1. The visor tucks neatly away beneath a non-intrusive shell built into the helmets liner, and can be lowered with the easy control of a sliding button. Shoei Neotec Helmet Features Face Shield Features Easily operable lever mechanism Anti-fog, anti-scratch, 99 UV blocking New Pinlock-ready CNS-1 faceshield Wider and taller than the CX-1V that it replaces Includes Pinlock insert 3D injection molding process ensures a distortion-free view Improved Ventilation and Aerodynamics Newly designed vortex generators pull air through helmet 276 more airflow than Multitec Added inlets and outlets Vents are flush against helmet to maintain aerodynamics 5-Ply Shock-Absorbing Fiber Shell 3 shell sizes AIM Multi-Composite construction Lightweight yet strong Shell-integrated spoiler reduces lift and drag during high-speed riding Dual EPS Liner Multi-density EPS for optimal protection Two vents funnel fresh air through the EPS liner Dual liner channels route and disperse air evenly throughout the helmet EPS liner in chin bar All new interior Fully removable 3D interior liner Top center pad is removable and washable Improved cheekpad design allows better fit with eyeglasses Included chin curtain can be inserted into the chin bar to reduce turbulence and noise All Neotec Helmets sold in the US have a double D-ring closure Note Due to manufacturer restrictions, Shoei products can only be shipped to addresses within the United States

The best gear isn't cheap, but in the long run, it's usually money well spent. My previous helmet is a HJC IS-16, which I have no complaints about. The Shoei Neotec is simply better in every way. I bought a Neotec for my wife after she tried on a dozen helmets and this was the only one she would have. Guess I got helmet envy because after examining it at length, it was clearly the top of the helmet food chain.
Tinted drop-down visor. This has become a must-have helmet feature. I still can't find the lever first time every time.
Shield - wide field of view, Pinlock insert included.
Chin curtain and nose guard included.
Chin bar works easily and reliably, feels secure.
Ventilation - 5 stars! This thing vents like a blower scoop on a drag race motor without being drafty.
Quietest helmet I've ever had.
Ear pockets - easily fit an intercom system.
Color - my wife, as a pillion, appreciates the new matte grey finish/color.

If you do, this is your bag.
Pros
Quality materials
Rugged construction
Fit and load-bearing support
This harness system fits amazingly well and would probably still be comfortable if the bag was full of rocks. It feels like it's clamped onto your torso, really different than typical hangy, saggy backpacks.
Cons
Zippered front connector is not a good idea.
The fact that the zipper is backwards for US males (left hand pull instead of right hand pull) compounds this inconvenience.
The real problem with the zipper is that it's very hard to do when wearing a heavy jacket. With a helmet on, you can't see what you're doing. Gloves - forget about it.
A pack this big needs compartmentalization options. I realize the design is one big compartment, stuff it at will. If that's what you need, then this design is perfect, otherwise, not so much.
The front of this bag covers your chest like Kevlar vest. You might consider this extra protection a bonus. If you ride in hot weather and need frontal ventilation, you're done for.
I returned it and got a Kriega R25, more civilized, smaller but still big enough for my daily commuter needs.

AltRider Yamaha Super Tenere XT1200Z Skid Plate Rocks and debris are no match for the AltRider Skid Plate for the Yamaha Super Tenere XT1200. Constructed of 3.175 mm powder coated aluminum, it reaches high on the left hand side to protect the stator, and provides extensive coverage of the headers on the right. The skid plate features hand TIG welds and stainless hardware, and is manufactured in the United States. The AltRider skid plate is the solution for the Yamaha Super Tenere XT1200, no matter what adventure you take. Specifications 3.175 mm anodized aluminum Hand TIG welds Stainless hardware Height 12 inches Width 18 inches Depth 24 inches Weight 8 lbs Note The AltRider Yamaha Super Tenere skid plate will not work with OEM Yamaha crash bars because of interference with crossbar on crash bars. Skid plate will mount up but cross bar will have to be removed. Note Skid plate must be removed to change oil filter. If using aftermarket oil filter, it must be the same 2 length as OEM to avoid interference. Oil, alone, can be changed with skid plate installed.

This is a skid plate on an expensive adventure touring bike, so I really don't want to test it if you know what I mean. Skid plates are insurance, you want to have it there just in case.
This product is typical Altrider fare, which is to say it is top quality. The instructions are very thorough and accurate enough that installation was followed with no mis-steps. Hint - an angled driver will ease holding the inboard fasteners.
The product is well designed: good coverage (important for a skid plate), thoughtful bracketry, the fitment was excellent, good powder coat finish (black version), and it looks good too (style is subjective, but let's face it, some skid plates are ugly without being more functional.)
I have several Altrider products on this bike. They're not cheap, but they are about as good as you can get and made in the USA too!
