Ok so I got these pants with the jacket. I really like them both. However, they are not for warm. sticky weather. They are water resistant for sure, but not for going into a full water proof dependability. I have already tried this on storms and know that eventually water will get through them. There is a law for these things and it's called the gore-tex law.
In terms of materials and comfort they are really nice and are my got to pants for cooler weather. Good product, good price, I recommend it.

40 liters of anything. Totally Waterproof, easy to use, easy to install (comes with the cords). No complications. Perfect to put in front of your top case in the pillion sit. Perfect for your long trip. Can't go wrong.
I ended up buying this one instead of a cheaper one Nelson Rigg because it's Givi and it was like 30 bucks more. No regrets.

Ok so I got the entire urge overkill outfit. When you buy into a second-tier brand you know what you are getting into and that's exactly what these gloves are, just OK. Average.
PROS: they are comfortable and have very good feel to the handlebars. Also they are good looking. Lastly they are good for mild weather.
CONS: Not waterproof. Don't get them believing they are.. I didn't but was forced to know the truth under 3 days of rain at the Blue Ridge parkway. Waterproofing was simply a joke. But I knew this when I got them.
So, my rating is ok because they are what you pay for, and for that I recommend them. If you want waterproofing, don't be fooled by anything else that is not Goretex, that's the only thing that is going to do it.

I did my thorough research before I bought this helmet. I saw the Gmax, the Fly Trekker as members of the "low end" Category. I decided to buy the Strike white based on what I wanted and also based on some features like the closure system which is different than the other two which have D-ring.
I've been wearing the helmet for a while now and it is as good as expected. More over I had the chance to see the Fly helmet at a local retailer. I couldn't be happier with my AFX-fx 39 strike white. Definitively the coolest helmet in town. Also the wind resistance is ok, no big deal.
