I been riding these boots for about 5 years, and they are great! I have a hard time finding shoes and boots that fit my feet well but these boots fit perfectly. The are confortable, water proof, and they never get hot. They don't make the best cold weather boots but they are not terrible, I would say that they are good down to about 45 F. They aren't bad for walking around and they last a long time. I would buy them again.

The helmet comes with the clear shield, the integrated sun shield, the peak and the removable chinbar. The Lexan chinbar is EPS lined and mounted with strong stainless-steel latches, so it passes the tests for full-face helmets of the European standard ECE-2205. VPS (Vision Protection System) features a short dark shield mounted on the inside of the helmet which moves independently from the face shield. It provides real eye protection and is also available in amber, light blue and light smoke as an accessory. The VPS is easily operated by a large rubber coated slider on the left side of the Nolan N43 .

Outlaw versions of Nolan Helmets have a sleeker look with more subtle Nolan logos. Though this helmet passes ECE testing in Europe, in the US it is DOT Approved only.

I have only had full face helmets before I bought the N43 and I was a bit surprised how loud it was. I talked to some friends who ride in 3/4 helmets and they all said that their helmets were similarly loud but it was still a bit of a shock for me. I don't feel much air comming through the top vent but the helmet never seems hot, so I guess it is doing its job. I love the field of view with this helmet, visually it doesn't seem like I'm even wearing a helmet. The helmet is confortable and I love the versitality, I will put the chin guard on in the morning when it is cool out then I'll take it off on the way home when it is warmer out. I wish the built in sun shade came down a bit farther, but it does it's job. All in all this is a well built helmet and I am happy with it, I would recommend this helmet but make sure it is what you are looking for.

I ride a 2007 Yamaha FJR1300 and I have Bridgestone BT023 GT's on the front and back. Dry weather traction is well beyond my abilities on the bike, the braking is great, and they track straight. For some reason I seem to get caught in the rain alot, and these tires give me great peace of mind. The wet weather traction is fantastic and they even grip well in cold weather (35 F). I am very happy and have great confidence with these tires and I will buy them again.
