Great tire irons, no reason to take a wheel to the shop to have the tire changed, change it yourself with these!

A nice, light summer glove. Fit seems to be a little large, I fit an XL Alpinestars glove, but a L in these. They are lighter summer gloves, as with all it is a trade off, but for hot summer days I will wear these.

I bought these when I bought the SMH-5 and never used the stock headphones. These are great! The sound quality is better than I ever expected, talk radio is loud and clear, and even at full highway speed music is quite good. For the extra bucks it is worth buying these to upgrade the system.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Connects to the headphone assembly and allows for use of a full faced helmet. A small piece of velcro holds the mic to the helmet. The sound is very good and I can make phone calls at 60 with no problem or complaints from the other party. On some helmets some fitting may be required to avoid wind noise especially when turning your head.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I went with this model as I normally ride alone and the shortened range as compared to the SMH-10 is not an issue, I may have chosen differently if I did more group riding. I upgraded the headphones immediately and added the wired mic for my full face helmet, the sound and ability to make clear and understood phone calls is fantastic! I listen to talk radio while commuting with very few times wondering what was said, and even at full highway speed music is clear. Pairing is easy and the clarity between riders is superb. I cannot speak highly enough about the quality and value of this system.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I have used these boots for the last few thousand miles and found them to be very comfortable and sturdy and as a bonus broke in quickly. Revzilla recommends a slightly smaller size chart than Alpinestars, and even with my wide feet, the Revzilla's recommendation was right on.
Yes, I recommend this product.

The cable and lock seem to be well made and able to hold up to standard use. While it is not the most secure option for bike protection, it could be used for such, or to use for alternate items.

Michelin Pilot Road 3 Front 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

Put a set of these on about 3500 mi ago and the wear is barely apparent. The grip and traction are great, and I have been especially impressed in wet conditions.

I have 3500 mi on these tires already and wear on the rear tire is only just becoming apparent. They have great traction dry and having ridden through some extremely heavy rains the wet traction is solid. Unless something crazy happens I will buy these tires again.

This tank bag has lots of space for daily needs, I have been using it for almost a month of commuting and I can put extra gloves in with lunch and coffee and still have room for much more. The mesh pocket under the top flap holds my wallet and camera nicely out of the way. Plus there is the expansion, which I have not exercised yet. I have taken it on some highway trips and at well above the legal speed limit, even loaded, it did not shift at all. The rain fly fits well and is easier to get on then I thought it would be. I have not used the backpack like straps which would fit onto eyelets, while it does not look like a particularly comfortable option, it looks like it would function reasonably. In the end I am happy to have purchased this Nelson Rigg tank bag.
Yes, I recommend this product.
