Easy to put on and take off and the top material is thin to avoid causing fitment issues with your helmet. Plenty of material to tuck into your jacket which is windproof. I rode over an hour at 40 degree weather at 60-100mph speeds and never felt any wind getting through or feeling chilly/cold.
I would definitely recommend this to anyone who commutes or has those late Fall and early Spring rides and don't want to come back to the house with a frozen face.

The bag does what it's supposed to do but at a cost that really doesn't justify the aerodynamic pack. The shoulder straps are of average quality at best and the helmet strap sits on top of the shoulder strap so trying to adjust everything with your helmet and gloves on is almost impossible with a lot of trial and error,
The interior isn't all that great for space due to the shape of the shell but the lack of straps on the back side of the bag like other bags does make it nice to not having to worry about wrapping up excessive straps to avoid damage to the paint. However it comes with a waist strap with belt that is pretty much worthless since people buying this are on sport bikes that tuck into their bikes. You're not going to use what is the equivalent of a fanny pack coming between your gut and the gas tank.
Buy something else unless you just want a bag with this shape.

I bought this in medium and it fits a 2004 CBR 1000RR and a 2010 Ducati 1198S. The case is built into the cover which packs up small enough to fit in the storage area of my Ducati. I've used it twice through rain so far with no issue as far as it staying on the bike or keeping the rain out.
I'm happy with this cover.

These are very comfortable gloves upon first putting them on and easy to get secured and fastened. I have an Alpinestars Shark jacket with a tight sleeve and a Rev It Ignition jacket with a loose sleeve and this glove fits over both with no fitment issues. I have not had the chance to wear these in rain to test their rain proofing but I have had them in 40 degree temperatures at 70-100+ speeds for over an hour without any issues at all. Not even the slightest feeling of the glove letting in cold.
Over all I am very happy with this glove and think it would do fine for use as a commuter glove at least down to the low 40's if not potentially lower for shorter rides.

 Bell RS-1 Stellar Helmet
Bell RS-1 Stellar Helmet
Bell RS-1 Stellar Helmet The Bell RS-1 Helmets bridge the gap between the value-minded Vortex and the top-of-the-line Bell Star with amazing mid-line pricing, great graphics and high-end performance. The Bell RS-1 Stellar Helmet has an amazing star theme that plays out in bold swatches of color, eye-catching pinstripes and reflective whites. The major design element is a large star centered over the eye port where you can feel the force of the riders speed blowing the points of the star back over the helmet. The technical aspects of this helmet also deliver. The RS-1 brings with it Bells vaunted Velocity Flow Ventilation system, a super stable aerodynamic profile, and the versatile Click Release shield system for fast, easy shield swaps. All told, its one great helmet at a modest price. Features Snell M2010 Certification Velocity Flow Ventilation Super Stable Aerodynamic Signature 3Mode Shield - Lock, Ratchet, Crack ClickRelease Shield Mechanism NutraFog II Anti Fog Coating Kevlar/Fiberglass Shell Contour Cut Cheekpads Integrated speaker pockets for audio speakers Removable/Washable Liner Agion (R) Antibacterial Liner MagnaFusion Strap Keeper Comes with clear face shield only Five-year Warranty

I currently have 8 helmets of various quality. 99 dollars to 650 and it seems I always want to try something else to see if I can get the perfect fit. I finally have found it!
This helmet is very light and the noise levels are not bad at all while still flowing a good amount of air.
Turning your head back and forth at speed to check traffic does not cause any buffeting or heavy push on your head.
I wear a large in most helmets and I wear a large in this as well. My SHOEI Quest has more space between by mouth and the front of the helmet which is great for communication devices but there is still enough room to fit a boom mic inside this helmet as well. I have a round oval shape so I do need some space in the front in order to not kiss the front of the helmet at speed.
The replacement of the shield is quick and easy but I bought the transition lens so no real need to swap anything out. I recommend this shield with this helmet but if you do not get this shield then swapping out is pain free.
This helmet has to be the best so far in anti fogging capabilities. Today in 50 degree temps I had no issues whatsoever and this is prime temperatures to really deal with this issue.
Whether looking around or in the tuck this helmet barely feels like it's there and flows a lot of air. I really cannot say enough good things about this guy.

I've had several pair of road boot/sneaker but this is my first track style boot so this review is based off my my experience level.
*The boot's fit and finish is really top quality
*It's very easy getting into
*Once you learn to lean forward to tuck your shin into the boot getting it on is a snap. If you have big calves and stand straight up it can make zipping the boot much more difficult.
*Wearing a boot like this is much different than a protective shoe. The feel and of course movement are different. I had to re-learn where to position my foot.
*This boot flows a good amount of air but not so much that when riding at 50 degree weather than my feet ever got cold.
I absolutely love this boot and would recommend it to anyone looking at moving up from a street view and not sure whether they should spend the money.

I've used quite a few chain lubes over the years and one of the biggest things I've considered is how much fling you're going to be dealing with. The degeaser takes the stuff off in pretty much an instant but unfortunately you're going to be using it all the time. I had my bike sit a full 2 days after applying and after a short trip I got off my bike and saw the chain lube EVERYWHERE! It really was disappointing.
Also that cloth they provide would have been better serviced as a microfiber since this thing just shreds apart upon use.
I think there are a lot of products out there that provide above average protection with much, much less fling off.

I've been collecting a lot of gear and losing places to put it all and decided to get this bag to initially just place it all with the ability to move around easily but once I got the bag I started using it for travel as well. It's very well put together with a lot of room and plenty of compartments to place many different items.
Definitely recommend.

I bought this jacket for my wife to give her protection while riding with me as well as have some waterproofing and multi season use. She is just under 5'8" at 135 pounds and the medium fits her perfect in both waist and arms. The styling is subdued but is something you can wear pretty much anywhere.
We plan on taking a trip to Colorado next month and I'll report back with any additional positives or negatives.

Although a bit pricey it is still a very solid product that does what it's supposed to do. I mounted it on my Diavel for a trip to the tail of the Dragon and packed my tool set, extra gloves, rain suit, wallet, GPS and a few other items inside. The main compartment is very rigid and holds shape so you can pack pretty tight without worrying about it changing shape.
The side pockets are too rigid to really put anything of any real size in them but I used them to pack all of my wires, batteries and chargers. Everything seems durable and that it will last. The magnets are very strong and did not move at all. The backside of the mounting hardware is also soft and did not scratch the surface of my tank.
Pulling the bag off and riding with just the base is quick and easy and allowed me to drop everything at the hotel and just throw my wallet and important papers in the base and ride the Dragon with no fuss.
Solid product and I'd recommend it as a good item to fit your needs commuting around town or a 2-3 day drip.
Yes, I recommend this product.
