I recently bought a BMW 1200 GS and got this helmet mostly because it matches both the bike's color (blue) and riding style. The fit was initially kind of tight compared to the other helmets in my collection (Vemar, Arai, Suomy), but the shape is different from those and after two weeks it seems to fit well, just squeezes you cheeks a bit on the sides. Air flow is excellent and can be closed off on cold days. The visor is effective at shielding the sun (haven't had to adjust it yet). The quick release chin strap is a great feature on a helmet at this price point. My advice is to read the reviews and pick a size consistent with what others say they feel, and also measure according to AFX's size chart. I thought I would be getting an XL based on my other helmet sizes but it turns out that L was the right size and that's what I ended up ordering.

This jacket fits true to size and is comfortable, although a bit heavier and stiffer than comparable jackets from Dainese. There are several inside pockets on both right and left sides with Velcro closures rather than zippers, which makes it easier to get to them. The sleeve ends can be left unzipped to allow more air flow into the sleeve, while still providing a protective leather covering over the wrist. The jacket fits well with both chest armor and back protector.
