Radial architecture that enables improved overall response and handling as well as unrivaled performance over the long term, compared with a same-size cross-ply tire.

The Pilot Street Radial tires are derived directly from Michelin's radial Sport Touring ranges and features tread borrowed from the Michelin Pilot Road 2, giving the motorcycle an attractive, sporty appearance.

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).
Yes, I recommend this product.

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.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Kriega US-20 Drypack The Kriega US-20 is an award-winning, high quality piece of motorcycle luggage, offering 20 liters of capacity. Like all Kriega US bags, it is a 100 waterproof Drypack with innovative design which attaches to the sub-frame, via included buckle loops and Alloy Hook Straps, for use as a motorcycle tail pack and courier bag. The Kriega US-20 motorcycle bag comes equipped with removable shoulder and waist straps. It can be carried courier style, on or off the bike. It can also be used as a tank bag (with addition of US Tank adaptor) or in combination with other US packs to create a supremely adaptable, modular, soft luggage system. Anti-slip mesh base also doubles as a pocket to store the shoulder waist straps, or other items, when the US-20 is attached to the motorcycle. The shoulder strap connects to the large D-rings at each end of the pack and the waist strap connects to 2 x tuck-away buckles at the corners of the mesh-pocket. The Kriega US-20 dry pack motorcycle tailpack is designed to work perfectly with pretty much any motorcycle, via a super secure attachment to the sub-frame. The pack is easily attached/removed by 4 x quick-release buckles, and no extra bungees or rain covers are required. The Kriega dry bag US-20 tail pack utilizes the latest generation of fitting straps. US Alloy Hook Straps allow tailpack combinations of up to 90-liters to be carried with confidence and convenience. Easy on/off with no loose straps remaining. Custom CNC milled, aircraft grade, 6061-T6 alloy hooks attach to the four discreet web loops located on the frame of the bike. Fitting method is particularly suitable for traditional one-piece motorcycle seats and bolt-on seat pads/racks, as well as standard seats. US packs can be mounted inline or across the seat. For use as a tankbag, Kriega US Tank Adaptor must be purchased. Kriega US-20 dry pack features 100 waterproof main-body RHINOTEK abrasion resistant fabric HYPALON abrasion resistant reinforcement DRYPACK removable taped-seam inner liner 420D nylon ripstop - lightweight yet extremely strong CNC milled, 6061-T6 alloy fitting hooks Acetal ITW Airloc quick-release buckles YKK water-resistant zip on side pocket Side access zip pocket (water-resistant) Coated-mesh pocket Shoulder waist straps US Alloy Hook Straps included 10-year guarantee 20-liter capacity (H)15.7 x (W)10.2 x (D)7.5 inches Note The US-20 subframe loops are reflective, not black as shown. This will help to ensure a secure connection to the frame of your motorcycle, and to differentiate between the subframe loops and the connection straps.

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.
