I bought the half smoke to have something with a little tint for the odd occasion when the sun is actually shinning in Vancouver. I have ridden in heavy rain and after dark and visibility has not been a problem, I only wish I had made this purchase earlier as my prescription sunglasses don't fit under my helmet.
Yes, I recommend this product.

bought these to upgrade the armor in an awesome older leather jacket and they do the trick, they fit into the pockets well, feel like they will offer good protection which I hope I never get to test. I think they are good for the price.
Yes, I recommend this product.

These shoes are breaking in very nicely, as others have already stated they fit very large and going one size down did the trick. They are quite rigid to start, and though I have been wearing them for a week it is not comfortable to squat on the balls of my feet yet. On the bike they feel great, I was a little concerned about how well they would grip the pegs but they feel good in the wet and dry. You can expect to buy your own insole for these as the original slid around, I have since put in my orthotics and they feel even better. All in all, a good shoe for the bike, I like the water proofness, I like the style and the price.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I bought this for my CBR250R and I am very glad I did, it provides great grip in the wet, even when the tire is not all that warm(compared to IRC Road Winners).

Bought these to replace the stock tires on my CBR250R and I am very glad I did. I have found these tires to grip very well in the wet, even in low temps which is great because I ride year round rain or shine.

I bought this for my CBR250R and I am very happy I did. I live on the West Coast of Canada and we get lots and lots of rain, and so far this bag has preformed very well. I was not able to mount the anchors directly to the sub frame so I just have them looped under the seat and so far this works well. The bag is not quite as big as I thought it would be, especially if I am carrying my laptop which is an older 15" Acer - I have a hard time rolling the top down twice and have the side clips fasten. The only thing lacking is not including the female female clips to secure the anchor straps to each other across the seat when you are riding with out the pack and don't want to unhook the straps. Otherwise and excellent purchase!

I liked this glove as soon as I put it on, however I bought this as a wet weather glove and am a little surprised it does not feature a visor squeegee, and they seem to take a while to fully dry after riding in heavy rain. Make sure you measure your hand to get the right fit, I ordered large and could have gone up to an extra large which would probably be warmer.
Yes, I recommend this product.
