Michelin Pilot Road 3 Rear Tires Building on the tremendous reputation Michelin has built over the years, the Michelin Pilot Road 3 Tire is the successor to the award winning Pilot Road 2. With the Michelin Pilot Road 3 Motorcycle Tire you are really getting 2 tires in 1, by integrating a soft rubber compound on the tread shoulders with a wear-resistant compound down the middle, Michelin gives you the best of both worlds. The Pilot Road 3 is a dual compound sport-touring radial tire. Revolutionary X-Sipes technology maximizes wet traction Michelins newest technology delivers all-weather performance without compromising tread life or handling Patented innovation resulting from years of research and development Sipes increase the tread's drainage capacity Sipes generate pressure at the edges of the sipe blade, which helps to break through water film Two compound technology combines tread life and cornering grip 2CT incorporated into all tire sizes, front and rear Wider soft-compound shoulders on the front tire, compared to its predecessor High performance and environmentally sound 100 non-aromatic-oil rubber compound Note Sizes denoted by B are designed specifically for loaded sport touring bikes, or for riding two-up. More info about Michelin Pilot Road 3 Tires available in review by Gear Geek CK.

I'm much happier with these tires than my previous Scorpions. I recently took an advanced motorcycle course on a rainy day, and everyone was complaining about slipping on the white parking lines except for me. The grip is better in all conditions, but they really shine on wet surfaces.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Redverz Series II Expedition Tent Redverz Tents put the comfort back into camping with the new Series II Expedition model, adding to the appeal of the original design which shelters riders, motorbikes and gear in comfort, out of the elements and under one roof. With two inches more headroom than the original, nearly double the original square vestibule footage and convenient J-door entries, the Series II Expedition Tent offers you more. Expedition-grade ripstop nylon ground cloth and floors offer superior protection, while the double wall design of the sleeping bay helps eliminate condensation.

The tent packs down to not much larger than less roomy tents, and is a breeze to setup and take down. I put this up in half the time of my neighbor that had a waist high tent just a bit larger than a sleeping bag. The materials and construction were all very high quality. It is very nice to be able to stand up inside as well as leave dirty gear outside the sleeping space, but still protected from the elements.

I have small hands, and buy most gloves in the S size. After reading the reviews and sizing chart, I decided to go with a Medium, but even those were too small. The finger length was good, but they were too narrow and uncomfortably tight.

REVIT Sand 2 Jacket Those looking for a jacket to wear on an around-the-world trip need look no further than the REVIT Sand 2. The already popular Sand jacket has been improved with a bevy of innovative new features. The jacket features adjustable VCS zippers that increase ventilation by 200 percent over the originalplus, it has a wind-catcher feature integrated into the zipper for even greater airflow. The jacket is compatible with both Leatt and MOVEO neck brace systems, the latter of which conveniently stays attached when taking the jacket on and off. The Sand 2 also comes with a connection zipper. This makes it easy to connect the jacket with compatible REVIT! trousers and eliminates any gap that would allow water to creep in. With the inner membrane removed, the outer shell can be upgraded with a Challenger cooling vest insert. The Sand 2 comes with CE shoulder and elbow protection and integrated reflective panels for nighttime visibility.

I especially like the separate rain and thermal layers and the back pouch to keep them in. Plenty of buckles, zippers and snaps for a great custom fit.
Good airflow for the most days of the year, but a bit too much material for 90+ weather. I wanted a jacket for a trip to Spain in July, and I think this will be too hot, but I like it so much I'm keeping it for my everyday jacket.
Yes, I recommend this product.

The boots are comfortable to walk around in, even with the pre-shape, and fit true to size. I'm going to be having to wear these on a plane in a few weeks, and am fairly confident they will be easy to travel in.
I typically ride around town with my soles fairly parallel to the ground, and wasn't noticing much airflow on a muggy 90 degree TX day. However, I pointed my toes down a bit (putting the pegs in the notches at the heel) and they really opened up; even at 25 mph they were quite breezy.
There's a lot of protection here for the price, especially for a ventilated boot.
Yes, I recommend this product.

REV'IT! Pacific H2O Rain Suit In developing the Pacific H20 rain suit, one of REV'IT!'s main goals was to make it easy to put on in just a few seconds about the time it takes you to get soaked during a heavy shower. Mission accomplished. The solution lies not only in the long, diagonal front closure, but especially in the newly developed, non-stick, PVC-free coating on the inside of the Power Nylon outer shell. The result is a 100 waterproof, breathable, and very practical all-weather companion that will meet the demands of any rider. Convenient features include a storage pocket on the upper leg. For safety, reflection panels on the shoulders and lower legs ensure great visibility. If you need to stand out in traffic even more, the Pacific H2O comes in a high-visibility neon yellow option. PROTECTION FEATURES Outer shell PVC-free PWROxford with PU coating, PVC-free PWROxford EN471 with PU coating (in Neon Yellow color only) Waterproofing 100 waterproof Composition 100 polyester (100 polyurethane coating) Visibility reflection at shoulders and legs, reflective logo at chest and back ERGONOMIC FEATURES Fit tour fit, regular Adjustability adjustment tabs at upper arm, cuffs and ankles Features PVC-free XL front zipper Elastic at waistline Includes transport bag Stash pocket on left leg EN343 certified

The Hi-Viz version is very bright when you need it most, and it easily rolls up into the included pouch.

Helps to keep me cool while I'm on the bike and quickly and easily converts to comfortable shorts when I'm off. I'm not wild about the style/color but they're so good at keeping me protected and cool, I don't care.
Pros Great Value, Comfortable
Cons Fugly
Yes, I recommend this product.
