Denali D2 LED Driving Light Kit The unique optic in the D2 lights were designed to create a massive beam of light that is the perfect balance between distance and width. You wont believe how much light is thrown out in front of you, and off to the sides. Consuming only 10 watts of power per lamp, the Denali D2 lights throw a blazing beam of light 423 feet down the road in front of you. Thats 3 times further than your typical motorcycle high beam. The Denali D2 lights are equipped with a dual intensity LED and harness to create the ideal lighting solution for on and off road riders who want an uncompromised beam of light illuminating the road in front of them. These lights are so bright, Denali developed dual intensity technology so you can use your existing hi/low beam switch to select half intensity brightness when passing oncoming. The lights can also be wired independent of your high/low beam switch to run at full intensity all the time. Its up to you! All Denali LED lights are housed in a rugged waterproof aluminum housing (submersible up to 3 meters underwater). Each LED boasts an average life span of 50,000 hours thats 6 years without ever being shut off. Yes, they went overboard. Its what they do. Features Pod Size 2 round x 2.4 long Beam Distance of 423 ft Power Draw of 10 watts/1.5 amp per lamp Dual intensity Beam Angle 10 and 25 Waterproof IP-68 828 lumens Includes 2 x Denali D2 LED light pods Wiring Harness with Dimmer Module, Relay and Lighted Switch 2 x M8 (8mm) mounting brackets 2 x spot driving beam lenses (10 degree beam pattern) 2 x flood beam lenses (25 degree beam pattern) Installation instructions Allen wrench Note Mounting kit sold separately.

Living in an area where night driving is sketchy due to the large deer population, I've been looking for some driving lights that are powerful, low energy consumption, and compatible with my Kawasaki Concours 14. The Denali D2 Kit, with the crash bar mounts (sold separately) turned out to be the perfect choice. I had them installed by my dealer, choosing the tie in to the stock headlight control, rather than wired independently. It was a good choice. Took them out for a test run last night and saw deer at the roadside, well in advance of what I would have seen without them. With the high fatality statistics regarding deer/motorcycle collisions, these lights definitely give you more advance warning to help avoid potential catastrophe. They are on the pricey side, but a good risk management investment. Grateful that Revzilla carries these top quality lights. Not only do they work well, they look great on my bike.

Found these pants when I was visiting the Philly store and immediately fell in love with them. Love the leather seat, as well as the venting in the legs. They were a perfect fit for me, so much so that I'm going to buy the Air Frazer Jacket next. I already have three Dainese jackets, love them all, as the span the riding seasons. I'm leaving shortly for a road trip with some heat along the way, and I fully expect these pants will provide the comfort and protection I've come to expect. Dainese always puts a zipper on the back of the pants that connects them to their jackets, a feature I really like. Also like the pucks on the pant knees, but hope they never have to touch the pavement. I don't think you can ever go wrong with Dainese.......their gear is always stylish, functional, and solid.

I had been reasonably pleased with an earlier Sena product,so took the plunge and bought their new flagship communicator, the 20S. Huge mistake!!! The Sena app tells you to upgrade the firmware, then when you register the product and download the firmware installer, your trouble is just starting. Crashes every time I run it on a Mac Pro running the latest operating system. After you dig around in the Sena forums, there is a statement that it is best installed with a PC. So what are we supposed to do, go buy a new computer to upgrade the firmware. So far, no call back from Sena tech support to address these issues. I'm leaving on a trip in 24 hours and I'm sending this unusable, overpriced joke back to Revzilla for a refund. May just deliver it in person tomorrow to the store if I have time. Not a happy camper.

I came within a hair's breadth of buying this jacket, because I love the quality of Rukka. The deal breaker for me was the grossly inadequate magnetic collar closure, which is essentially non-functional and worthless. Wearing the jacket, all you have to do is move your head to one side or the other and the collar tab comes undone, due to the cheap, weak magnets Rukka used. Nothing Rukka makes is inexpensive, and to use these weak magnets in what would have otherwise been an excellent summer jacket was a huge disappointment. I hope Rukka will take my criticism to heart and rectify this flaw, as even a velcro closure would have been better than this cheesy magnet closure. If you don't care about the collar closure, then this is a great jacket, but if you want full functionality, it's just not there.

Pirelli Angel GT Rear Tires Pirelli dbuted the new Angel GT Tires on Basque soil in Bilbao, Spain accompanying the newest edition of the Multistrada 1200 S Granturismo. The new Angel GT Sport Touring tire will be standard equipment on the latest version of the Borgo Panigale model. The Angel GT boasts 15 percent more mileage than the Pirelli Angel ST without sacrificing performance. Pirelli has labeled this as Performance Mileage. The primary design was to provide regular wear and excellent water drainage guaranteed by both the front tires and by the new groove design on the rear. Pirelli is using a dual blend compound that allows for high mileage in the center with a higher percentage of silica on the sides offering maximum performance, even in wet conditions. In the end, the Pirelli Angel GT is a great option for long distance riders with a fully loaded bike, or for those who are looking to optimize performance on their short daily getaways. From sport bikes to touring and everything in between the Angel GT will not disappoint. Features (W)-rated for speeds of 168+ mph Ideal for sport riders looking for increased mileage without sacrificing grip and traction Extended Mileage Sport (EMS) tires provide best-in-class for mileage and grip Rear tires feature new Bi-compound formula that improves cornering traction A Spec rear tires feature a reinforced, 2-ply carcass Improved wet grip Tubeless

The first thing I did when I acquired my new 2012 Kawasaki Concours 14 was to ditch the OEM tires that came stock on the Connie. These tires are great rain or shine, and totally changed the feel of the riding experience for the better. Haven't had them long enough to fully assess how they will wear, but friends who have the same bike and running these tires love them, so I'm optimistic. I've always had good luck with Pirelli tires, and expect that won't change.

Gerbing really screwed this one up, the poor magnetic closure makes it garner my bad review. A simple snap closure would have been far superior to the magnetic closure, which doesn't work and is essentially worthless. About the only functionality you get from this is that it provides a way to secure the controller to your belt. Beyond that, it's a waste of money.

My first choice would have been the Adventure Gore-Tex, but as my size falls into the most popular range and the Gore-Tex model has been out of stock for some time, an upcoming trip forced a choice. Can't think of anything that's not to like with this boot. The styling and the protection is just what I wanted, and while I hope the protection part has to come into play, I feel more confident that in an accident, these boots would make a serious difference. As others have stated, because of the sole, this boot's height adds about a half an inch to a critical zone which will necessitate a shifter pedal adjustment. I'm not an off-road rider, so I believe this boot will be my go to boot for the long hauls. Out of the box, they do tend to be pretty stiff near the toe, so I've been wearing them on and off the bike, and used aerosol mink oil to limber them up. After a day of that, they feel great. Totally satisfied with this purchase, would do it again.

After my initial pleasure with the Dianese Shotgun jacket, on hot days I found it less than optimal in terms of ventilation. Part of the issue with the Shotgun is that it is black, and I don't think it comes in any other colors. On the other hand, the Air Tourer Jacket also comes in grey, which I purchased, and I'm quite pleased with it. Dianese has never disappointed me when it comes to quality and fit, I'm a true fan of their products. I do hope they offer more color options in the future, especially for summer wear. The Air Tourer was a great purchase, and the air flow is vastly superior to Shotgun. Had the Air Tourer been available when I was looking for a summer jacket, it would have been my first choice. That said, the Shotgun is also a great jacket, and I'm sure I'll still be wearing it on days when it isn't so hot.

Prior to buying these socks, I had been using knee-height soccer sox with my Dianese TRQ boots. The soccer sox made my feet feel sweaty, didn't hold up, and would stink after a single day of wear. The Dianese socks fit well, are padded in all the right places, and my feet felt dry after wearing them all day. First time I've ever spent this much for sox, and there may be other socks out there that work as well, but I'm sold on these, and will be ordering more. I'll be interested to see how they hold up over the long haul, but I suspect they will last.

There is nothing not to like about this tank bag. It is feature laden, and you definitely get a lot of bang for the buck. Plenty of room for all the things I take with me on a typical day and love not having to deal with straps to remove it. The magnets secure the bag perfectly, but it is a breeze to remove the bag when you want to. I love all the special compartments for cell phone, iPod, hydration pack, with room to spare. Highly recommended.
