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 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.

I pre-ordered the Shoei Air Journey helmet back in mid February, and it arrived yesterday. It was definitely worth waiting for. As I'm not a big fan of modular helmets, this helm was my first choice for a full-featured Shoei, and can't find anything not to like about it. Took it on a fifty mile ride today and it fully performed up to my high expectations. I don't really know what the difference is between the Air Journey and the Air Wanderer, but I"m totally sold on the Air Journey. I predict this is likely to be one of the most popular helmets for 2013. I love it, and as always, Revzilla always comes through with the gear I need and like.

Dainese Shotgun Jacket There is not a more comfortable summer jacket on the market. Pleasurable riding even in the hottest months of the year is the concept behind the new Shotgun Tex jacket that ensures comfortable aeration with numerous openings. Construction in stretch Mugello fabric guarantees a constantly tight and perfect fit while also preventing floating during the ride. The liner provided with silver ion treatment ensures elevated and long-lasting hygiene. Composite protectors on the shoulders and elbows, the pocket for the G-type back protector, and the jacket-pants fastening zipper complete the technical profile of this technical jacket with outstanding performance. Shock Protection Removable composite protectors certified to EN 1621.1/97 Standard. Abrasion And Tear Resistance Mugello fabric. Boomerang mesh inserts. Nylon mesh inserts. Comfort Adjustment strap on neck. Wrist adjustment. Waist adjustment. Temperature Regulation External fabric with water-resistance treatment. Sanitized lining.

I love the airflow on this jacket......I haven't had a chance to try it out on a hot day yet, but I've yet to be disappointed by anything I've purchased made by Dainese. It is comfortable, stylish, fits well with the Klim D30 back protector I purchased with it.

The Dianese Avro Textile jacket has the quality and style I've come to expect from this company. Fits me perfectly, even with the back protector installed, and extremely comfortable on or off the bike. Dianese products aren't inexpensive, but, as the old saying goes, you get what you pay for. I own two of their jackets, and can't wait to buy more.

My favorite salesperson at Revzilla showroom recommended this back protector for use with two new jackets I purchased that day, and his recommendation was right on the money. The space age material this protector is made of is amazing, soft and pliable to the touch, but upon impact it becomes rock hard and affords the protection you want and need. I keep going back to Revzilla, because I they know the merchandise they sell, they don't try to "oversell" you, and and I'm lucky that I live close enough to the showroom location where I can go in and personally see the merchandise and get their recommendations. Revzilla is always my first choice for motorcycle accessory needs.
