I held off getting a proper lock for a while until I could find a brake disc lock worth the investment. Abus is one of the best brands on the market, so I bit on the Granite Victory X Plus 68 lock. For the size, this thing is heavy. It's definitely a solid fortified build and the lock looks near impossible to break. The main key also has a small LED light on it, which is a nice touch if you need to use it in the dark. The overall design is great, but I have to say it needs some getting used to. I had a hard time locking and unlocking it the first few attempts because the whole thing would spin when I was trying to turn the key. I figured out a technique eventually, but it's still a little awkward. It's a good problem though because it proves the design is pretty effective considering the difficulty of taking it on and off even with the key. The shape and size also gave me some issues in storage. I have a pretty small compartment under the seat of my 2000 Ducati Monster M750, so I had to rearrange the few things I carry and it still BARELY fits due to its relatively strange shape and size. Even though it's a snug fit, I'm confident most bikes won't have as big of an issue in storing it but I felt I needed to mention it regardless. Overall, I'm very pleased with the lock and the accessories included, not to mention the peace of mind it brings. Unless you think you need an lock with an alarm, this is probably one of the best locks you can get to protect your precious motorcycle.
Yes, I recommend this product.

This is my first leather jacket and Alpinestars GP Pro Leather Jacket spares no expense. From a fitting standpoint, I got the 54 Eur (44 US) and it fits and feels amazing. I'm 5'10 195lbs if that helps reference. I personally will never buy a jacket online unless I've tried it on in person first. Anyway, the jacket is made of the best material on the market and comes with great safety features. I'm a sucker for red, white and black things and I have to say this jacket looks absolutely stunning in my opinion. The airflow is pretty poor, so it's not a great summer jacket but I managed in 90+ degree weather and it's perfect for the fall 60-70 degree weather. The price is a bit steep, but you definitely get your moneys worth in material, design and build quality.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I have the silver mirrored faceshield and the first thing is that the mirror didn't add too much to the bill, which is nice. Sometimes mirrors can double the price. Anyway, there are some minor imperfections in the silver coating but it doesn't distort my vision or is overly apparent until you look up close. I agree that it isn't as easy to swap as some other shields, but it's not that hard. The helmet comes with tools to take the beak off and put the new shield on. Be careful with the small black plastic washers. They'll pop off and most likely get lost. I also found that the replacement doesn't fit as snuggly into a seal as the original, but it's not that bad.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I love the look of the new dualsport helmet trend and the AFX FX-39 is a great only because of the price. You get the look without the price of some of the higher end helmets. The only big draw back it the noise. At 40+ mph it's one of the loudest helmets I've worn, but part of that is due to the nature of the helmet design as well as the way the beak picks up cross winds. It's decently light and I think it looks awesome. I have a silver mirrored faceshield that is kind of poor quality but decent enough. I also find the faceshield doesn't easily seal when closed. All the flaws of this helmet are eclipsed by the price though.
Yes, I recommend this product.
