If you wear glasses you can't wear this over your nose. They steam them up, big time. Slip it off your nose and it works fine. The bottom bunches up and doesn't lay nice like in the photo. This makes buttoning your collar button/snap a little tight. A properly fitted helmet is rather tight. Sometimes the neck warmer gets pushed way down when putting on your helmet. Then you have to try it again otherwise it's way too bulky around your neck. I can't wear it with my Shoei helmet with is a long oval shape. It works a lot better with my Arai which has a more round shape which I use in the winter anyway because of less venting on the helmet. Over all I like it and does it's job keeping the COLD air off your neck.

RevZilla Faceshield / Visor Bag Oversized banana pouch Smile holder Maybe. Visor tote Definitely. Don't scratch up your faceshield! Carry it along in RevZilla's handy visor tote. How many times have you put a nick in your tinted or clear shield from letting it float around in your backpack, saddlebag, or stuffed inside your jacket Never again shall your visor suffer such ignominy! Made from 600D Maxtura and padded to keep your shield snuggled up safely, this visor bag is just the ticket for keeping your shield clean, clear, and unblemished. If you have an anti-fog coating (many shields do), protecting it is the first step in having it work correctly. Rep some ZLA style with the highly-reflective logo emblazoned on the tote. A handy carry strap is included for lashing to the tippy- top of the stack of gear you take on your next trip! Note Face shield and/or banana sold separately.

Compared to my Field-sheer visor bags, the Revzilla bag has a more dense and thicker foam. My Arai visors are more difficult to place in the bag apposed to my Shoei visors. It may be a little more difficult to place in the bag but with the amount of $$ we spend on these shields, I'll put up with it for the extra protection.

RevZilla Women's Staff Premium T-Shirt Lovingly concocted in 2007 and named El Moto Diablo for its geared and devlish lines, the RevZilla Staff Tee Shirt has been part of our lineup from the beginning. The Men's version is also the same blue shirt in every video that Anthony has been rocking since day one of RevZillaTV on Youtube. People love to point out that Anthony doesn't ever change his clothes. I guess when it works you stick with it. The tee is screen printed on a high thread-count blank that is anything but one of those throw away tees you get free at the ball game. We wear tees a lot - almost every day - and we are very particular about how they fit, feel and hold up wash after wash. Sizing is true to size, if anything they run a hair on the small side. Show your love for TeamZilla. Make a statement. Boom.

Riding for 40 years, my first pinlock. A must for cold and/or rainy days. Bought 2, it's a little more convenient than swapping lens.

I bought this due to my previous Revit purchase being a little small, but if does fit my wife, so I kept it. The Olympia Horizon is very comfortable. Big enough cuffs to go over your gloves, Plenty of adjustment around the neck and waist. I rode about 45 minutes in a pretty good rain with temps in the mid 80's. Kept me bone dry. I think this is the only rain jacket (other than my Gore-Tex) that actually "breaths". I'm not sure if it's due to the two little rear shoulder vents or what, but I was no where near as hot as my previous rain jackets. It has a good balance of Hi-Viz and black. I'm well pleased with this purchase.

I'm 6' 3" 180#. I bought the large, should have bought the XL. It's a little too snug for my liking. The front zipper is on the left. I does keep you dry from rain but not the sweat. Like most rain suits it has little to no air flow. Overall a good rain jacket, just get the next bigger size.

I'm 6' 3" 180 lbs and wear 34 x 34 pant. Bought the M-LG. Placed over my summer riding pants, just above the belt and the fit is spot on. They don't seem like there going to ride up your leg in the riding position either. I'm a little concerned about the Velcro coming loose at the bottom of the pant leg, I would prefer a zipper, but we'll see. The smooth interior makes putting them on and off with all your gear on very easy. You shorter folks may have to pull them up to your arm pits to avoid hemming the pant legs and there's plenty of adjustment for the beer belly too, if you have one.
Obviously, I haven't tried their weather proofing yet, but as soon as I get some wet weather riding in, I'll post a review with the results and adjust the ratings accordingly.
Also, many thanks to Revzilla for super fast shipping.

With only a few tire choices for the BMW K1600 GTL, I thought I'd give these a try. I have 4000 miles on these tires, commuting 74 miles a day, figured it's time to give you my opinion. Dry grip is very good even at full lean on a heavy bike. Wet grip isn't to bad. The front tire gives you really good feel. In rain mode and TC on, I had the rear kick out a little on some turns. Now I'm a little leery on too much lean on wet roads. There very stable at hwy speeds even in torrential rain.
As far as tire life is concerned, these are showing relatively little wear for the amount of miles, considering this bike eats tires for lunch. The rear starting to flat spot and the front is showing the notorious ridge down the center. I should get another 4k out of these, I would most likely by again. See the attached photos, 4000 miles on the Bridgestone BT 023 GT.

I have a 38 mile one way commute 21 mile on slab. They have seen torrential rain to 95 degree heat. Since I only had them for a month, not sure what there like in the cold. Plenty of confidence in the rain and good feeling in the twisties. They have very little wear considering the weight of my K1600 GTL. Still waiting on my favorite tire MRP3 "B". Until they become available, the BT-023 is a good choice.
