I'm not sure what product everyone else has been getting, but the one I got is complete garbage. I bought two of the clear ones for my Shark Speed-R and for my Bell RS-1.
First off, peeling the lens from the sheet that it is on is a pain. The adhesive which sticks to the inside of your shield is what is sticking to the sheet. You have to remove it very, very carefully and even then it's easy to mess up. The lens doesn't come off the sheet as easily as you'd think it should.
Once I got the first one off of the sheet I inserted it into the shield of my Shark helmet. They say to fold the lens into a U shape and let the top and bottom middle sections make contact with the shield and then gently lower the sides. This is easier said than done. The purpose for the lens is to have an air pocket, but in some areas this lens presses against the shield which form bubbles and defeats the purpose of the insert.
The instructions say that you can remove and reapply the insert as you like to get the correct fit but the adhesive loses its stickiness after so many attempts. I used this method several times to perfectly layer the lens on the shield so that it kept an air pocket but nothing. The bubbles still remained in some areas. I figured I'd leave it alone and they'd sort themselves out after a while.
NOPE! Still bubbles! And the insert looks like complete doodoo inside the shield. It doesn't look like a pin lock insert. It looks like a child threw a sticker on the inside.
I'll post a picture of it later.
Garbage.
No, I do not recommend this product.

This helmet is amazing. It has features of most top of the line helmets at a little over entry level price. Great bang for the buck for sure.
Now, let's get started.
Airflow: The airflow through this helmet is great. I've owned ICON Airmada and Bell Star helmets and this is on par with them for airflow. The only downside to great airflow is wind noise. This helmet isn't as noisy as Bell models but it doesn't produce the whistling sound that is common with the ICON Airmada. I ride with plugs or headphones so it doesn't bother me much.
Comfort: This helmet is surprisingly lightweight. Either it's lightweight or I'm building some more muscle from lifting two kids around all day. The neck roll is very comfortable and I've yet to feel any hard points in the front, side and rear while riding. The chin curtain (it was a b!tch to take off) is flexible enough so that putting the helmet on and taking it off while the curtain is attached is fairly easy. Some helmets I've owned with a chin curtain made squeezing my head in a pain. Literally. Overall this helmet is very, very comfortable. The spoiler on the rear of the helmet isn't as advanced as the top end racing helmets, but it gets the job done when it comes to keeping your head still. The only thing that I find odd about this helmet is that I can almost touch the front of the helmet with my lips. If I make 'duckface' I can kiss the inside of the helmet.
Function: The quick release system for the visor isn't the easiest to use. Unlike ICON and Bell where it's just click click and pop and your shield is off or on, this one takes a bit more effort. It doesn't feel like a great quality release system. Almost feels like you'll break it by using it. The ratcheting system on the helmet is alright. I got spoiled by my Bell Star by being able to lock the visor in certain positions. This one feels a bit flimsy. Lifting the visor from the closed position feels funny. It feels like it's locked but isn't. In my opinion, I shouldn't need to use that much pressure to lift my visor. Also, the visors say fog free, but they do fog up. They fog up, but the fog disappears quickly. The vents adjust with ease even with gloves on though.
This is a great helmet for the value. Great graphics, airflow, and comfort. Great for daily use but grab something else if you're planning on doing some serious canyon carving or track days.
Yes, I recommend this product.

This bag is great. Def worth the extra $ to get the Mach 5. Very worthy of excellent adventures!
Durability; it's great. I've rode with it for a few months now and it is still like new. Haven't had any straps fray or rip at the stitching. No buckles have broken either. My last bag was from ICON and it busted at the seams even when it wasn't overpacked.
Comfort; this thing is very comfortable. Unlike most bags that move around or feel like they unzip while you ride, this one stays in place. It stays in place even without the sternum and waist straps attached. True to its name, it's low drag. No more bag hopping around your back while you do the "speed limit". If you like to feel extra secure, you can use the additional straps on the waist and sternum, but as I said before you really don't need them. The shape of the bag allows it to form to your back turning you into an aerodynamic turtle of sorts.
Ease of use; This bag is like a Swiss Army Knife. Okay, not really, but almost. There's a pocket for everything. Tools, gadgets, G.I. Joes, TPS reports, whatever, there's a spot for it. There's a spot for a hydration pack for those long hauls through the Mojave. There's a pocket that can fit a 15" laptop also, but… I don't really know anyone who rides around w/ a laptop especially since we all have smartphones these days. But it's there. There's enough room to fit a change of clothes and possibly a hoodie too. There are dedicated straps to keep your shoes in place also. A mesh net clips into the top of the bag to keep your clothes etc snug against the shell of the bag. The extra 2lt of storage is handy also. Lets you cram as much junk as you want in there without worrying about it busting the second you attempt to zip it up.
As you can see, the shell is one solid piece while the zipper is in the back of the bag against the riders back. You don't have to twist-tie your bag zippers anymore or worry about them unzipping themselves. Great for keeping your mind focused on your ride instead of wondering if your Game Genie fell out of your bag on your way to Grandma's house. There is also one zipper pouch separate from the main compartment that is felt lined. It isn't that big thought. It'll fit a cell phone and a wallet though. Great place to stash your wallet instead if inside the bag so you're not undoing everything at the gas station when you're filling up.
This bag also makes for a great makeshift weapon. The hard shell can really catch someone by surprise. I only know this because some buffoon pulled out the Micro Machine version of Rambo's knife on me and demanded money so I brought the wrath of the Titans down on his skull with my Mach 5. Guess he wasn't expecting a bag to knock him on his bum. So yeah, great weapon. (I, no does Revzilla or Ogio recommend or condone using this bag as a weapon.) Had to toss that in there for legality purposes.
Bottom line; buy it. You won't regret it. Sleek, stylish and functional.
Dress for the slide, not for the ride!

Before buying these I had a $60 pair of Bilt boots for canyon carving and track days. With the Spidis I feel like I have more protection. The boot itself feels solid and durable. Upon inspection of the boot I found that there were no loose threads or any plastic or rubber already peeling off. The pants of my leathers fit easily inside the boots. Also the hook and loop isn't a to open like on the Bilt ones. They slide off and on with ease and the zipper zips up and down with ease as well.
These boots are also stylish. I love the look of them. I highly recommend these boots for people who are on the fence about buying a full race boot.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Rukka Outlast 1-Piece The Rukka Outlast One Piece Suit works to keep the wearers temperature not too hot... not too cold... but just right, over a broad range of environments and activity levels. When your activity level or the outside temperature increase, the Outlast thermocules that contain the phase-change paraffin begin to change from a solid to a liquid which provides you with a comfortable sensation of thermal equilibrium. The energy required to activate this process comes from your warm body or rising ambient temperatures. When you begin to cool down, Outlast thermocules begin to change back from a liquid to a solid. In this phase change, the energy that was absorbed by the thermocules while you were active is returned to you.

In the winter I have been using FreezeOut from CycleGear and in the summer I've been using Sedici's HeatOut. I saw that this was an 'all season' base layer and figured I'd try it out and I'm glad I did.
The material is very thin but not poor quality. It feels solid like it won't tear easily. It being thinner than both FreezeOut and Sedici HeatOut makes it even more comfortable under my leathers. The fabric is soft and doesn't itch or bunch in your joints. It's like... A giant pair of footie pajamas from when you were a kid, but for adults. Adults who ride motorcycles. Another great feature of this one-piece is that it has a dual-zipper which makes going to the bathroom that much easier. (For those of you unfamiliar with a dual-zipper it's a zipper that can unzip downwards as well as upwards.)
As for performance, this thing is great. I took a ride with it today with the weather in the 50's. Keep in mind this isn't a wind blocker type base layer. This base layer keeps your body at a comfortable temperature. When moving you can still feel the air flow but it isn't freezing. This also doesn't keep you toasty like FreezeOut. When you come to a stop in FreezeOut you start sweating etc, but with this it cools you off some at a stop.
I haven't used this in weather below the high 40s yet. I imagine that if you're riding in anything below 30 that you'd need something else. In all this is a great base layer for the price. Very comfortable and very functional.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I am active duty military and wearing a jacket + ICON Mil-Spec vest and a regular backpack was kind of a pain. Not to mention my ID holder on my vest flew off leaving me to hold lines up at the gate while I dug around for it with gloves on.
This bag isn't big, but fits enough in it. You can fit a change of clothes (not shoes, maybe some flip-flops), a 15" lap top and some things here and there. The main compartment has 2 sections, the padded laptop section, then a larger section. The middle part is just one giant area with a small mesh organizer. In the top of the middle section is another pocket you can put smaller things in (a camera, cell phone, tooth brush, etc).
The very first pocket is small and thin. It's advertised as a tool pouch, which it has enough room to carry the essential tools needed to do quick on the go maintenance on your bike.
The straps and sternum straps are very comfortable. The mesh lining allows for decent air flow. Getting the pack to fit well is a bit tricky. It's unlike your conventional backpacks where both straps have individual adjustments on the bottom to pull the pack tighter and higher on your back, this one only has two straps on the side to pull the pack closer, and straps on the sternum buckles to pull the pack tighter.
I'm a li'l dude, so it kinda sits a little funny on me. Kinda like wearing a life vest that's a bit too big. Not too much of a pain, but slightly noticeable. The ID holders rest almost on the top of my shoulders, whereas I think they are supposed to rest below the shoulder, more on the chest.
This bag feels very solid and durable. Nothing about it feels flimsy or weak. The vest has 2 ID holders on each shoulder strap which can turn into a makeshift wallet on the fly. It has a velcro flap where and ID can be placed and a hard plastic container for other cards. Each side of the sternum pad has a pocket and headphone slot for your phone or music player. On the inside of the strap are bands you can slip the headphone cord though so it's not flying all over the place.
You CAN use a hydration system with this. This bag isn't specifically designed for it, but one can be used if needed.
Yes, I recommend this product.

This is the first boot that I've purchased (other than track boots) and I couldn't be more pleased. This one gives you comfort, protection and style.
I put these on for my ride and can wear them all day off the bike. These boots also don't loosen up throughout the day. They look great under jeans and no one knows you're wearing motorcycle boots either.
They're not slip-on, but that's not a big deal. I usually have to loosen ALL the laces before I can slide my foot in. I love the strap over the laces. I used to tuck my shoe laces into my shoe before which was uncomfortable and didn't always work. With this strap, I just tie the boots, fold up the laces and tuck them under the strap.
You can't beat the price either. You'll get a solid, great quality boot for minimum $$$.

These pants are great. Not too heavy but still feel like they will save your skin if you rag doll down the road.
I bought mine in my usual pant size which was a mistake. When wearing ALL the liners in side I feel like Ralphie's little brother from A Christmas Story. Makes my legs hard to bend and riding my bike very uncomfortable.
While removing the layers I broke some of the elastic straps that button each layer together. I wasn't tearing into them like a kid on Christmas, so I think the stitching is pretty weak.
I don't usually wear them with the liners, they've just been sitting in a box.
Order a size larger than usual. Over all I am pleased with these.

I got this jacket to wear when it's rainy/cold. The fact that you can add or remove layers was very appealing.
I haven't worn this in the rain yet, so I can't say how well it is at being water proof. The multiple pockets are great even though I don't use them much.
Venting is great, keeps my core cool and keeps it warm when they're closed.
The jacket is very wind resistant. I can wear just a T-shirt under it in 30 or below and be comfortable.
It's not the greatest jacket, but for the price and uses, it's decent.

Utilizing all SHARKs expertise in safety, innovation and function the SPEED -R is a helmet specifically designed to meet the passionate demands of un-faired motorcycle riders.

Spoiler/stabilizer at its rear base trim the Speed-R has a spoiler, which stabilizes the helmet ans the cancels the buffering effect. The immediate benefit is no air turbulence running inside the helmet and greater stability at a steady speed.

I only had my SHARK Speed-R Sauer for a week before I head butted the street with it. I'm still here without brain damage, so its' great for protection.
The features on the helmet are nice. I love the dual visor, being able to slide the smoke visor up and down whenever it's needed is great.
This helmet was pretty quiet. I can't recall it being loud. It fit very snug though, but the pads will break in.
The visual of the helmet is great too. Adds some nice style.
Very good helmet for the price.
