I bought these to wear on occasions where I don't want to show up wearing my normal heavy motorcycle boots. For the most part, they do the job.
The good: they look nice, they're pretty comfortable for standing and walking in, they're relatively light, and the perforated leather gets great airflow for summer riding.
The bad - ankle protection is basically nonexistant - it's just some extra padding and no real armor. And the extra padding rubs against my ankles when I walk and gave me some nasty blisters. I'm also not sold on the protection offered by the lightweight plastic armor in other parts of the shoe. They might provide some minimal protection in a relatively slow speed surface street crash, but on a freeway these would be just about useless.
Not what I was hoping for, but still better that riding in sneakers I guess.

Pit Bull Spooled Rear Stand The Pit Bull Spooled Rear Stand lifts spool-equipped bikes. It is width adjustable to fit virtually all spool-equipped sport bikes. Same as Standard, SS and 999 Rear Stands except for interchangeable top supports. Sold complete with spooled top supports. Available in three handle types Non-Removable, Removable, and Extended Removable. Removable Handle Stands allow you to use up less storage space and create less of a trip hazard in front (or rear) of your motorcycle. Both removable handle and non-removable handle measures 12 inches. Extended handle measures 15 inches. Note Spools sold separately. Note Stand does not work on 2008+ Hayabusa or ZX14R unless the stock fender is removed. Use the Pit Bull Rear Stand ZRX/Hayabusa/ZX14R for the late model Busa or ZX14R with stock fender.

Very simple solid tool, does the job. The price point is a bit high considering what goes into a stand like this, but then all the competing products are expensive too. Main thing is it's easy to use and does the job.

Reinforced jeans will never be as good as full armored pants, let's just get that out of the way. But as far as they go, these are very solid. I don't own a car so I take my bike everywhere and getting all geared up can be a hassle. So I'm slowly replacing all my regular jeans with motorcycle jeans so that even if it's just a quick ride to the grocery store I always have at least minimal coverage.
These pants are comfortable, look good, fit well, have more than the usual amount of reinforcement, and I really can't find anything to complain about. I just wish there were more color variations available as I'd like to buy a few pairs.

Mostly a great jacket but there are a few details that were just off. The leather feels plastic to the touch, from the look and feel of it I'd have guessed it was pleather. I'm hoping that's down to the finish they used. The velcro tabs at the throat and wrists are flimsy, I ended up cutting them off.
Otherwise a great jacket. It looks good, fits well, has solid armor, and gets great airflow when I'm riding. Those are the big things, everything else is just details.

Light, waterproof, easy to pack, no complaints. I've got to park my spyder outside this winter and needed something to keep the leather seats dry in the rain. This does the trick nicely.
