I really enjoy the grip and consistency of this rear tire. Its the OE tire for my KTM 950 ADV and I prefer it - great on road and off. It's a great balance for my riding style - I do more 90/10 (lets be honest) but you do not sacrifice on-road comfort and traction. Off-road you can feel good, confident grip which really helps when throwing the heavy bike around.

This is the stock OE tire for my KTM 950 ADV and I really enjoy its consistency. Running new front/rears now - with a new set you get a little bit of knobby vibration but only around 70-80mph for me.
These are fantastic all-rounders - I find their grip consistent and predictable both on and off road. There's great bite on gravel and dirt for me to feel confident on the heavy KTM, this is my preferred setup even when i ride more 90/10 than 70/30 - the benefits off road are worth every bit!

I ride year-long and after purchasing the Oxford Heaterz Premium Adventure Grips - I have realized that for years I've been such a fool.
Now I get to experience the joys of riding in any temperature with the comfort of toasty hands and finger tips!
Oxford is the way to go - their plug-and-play system is fantastic. Wiring directly to the battery leads - its just connect and route it through the bike. Oxford is generous with their wire lengths, so I decided to tuck and bundle the excess length (no problem, I had room).
The grips are fantastic. Thicker in diameter than my original grips - I quickly adjusted and prefer the feel. It gives more area that my glove contacts the grip = more heat. Regular cold days I might run 20 or 40%. It was low 20s today w/snow - cranked those baby's to 100% and I was happy.
I had to file the lip off my throttle end (plastic on the KTM) for a proper fit, a few extra minutes but installation was a breeze. Like others, I had a panic moment when installing the grips with the super glue (the second you put it on and it gets stuck mid-way through the grip I just started mashing on it thinking it'd get glued stuck mid-way on my throttle).. but it went on smooth and secure. Had to adjust my throttle and brake because the right grip end poked out even after trimming. No biggie.
Love the product! It's a must-have, I feel I'll be using it all year long because it adds so much comfort.

Simple enough - its caps that cover the rachet system if you remove the visor.
Taking off the visor makes this helmet much more manageable on the road - I didn't like how much wind the visor was catching and the wind noise. Now I've got a sharp look and for daily riding its fantastic.
The little extra's that you can buy for this helmet really help the product - this is a must-have.

I was looking for a fall/winter glove for 40-60 degree rides and this glove absolutely rocks!
The windstopper outer shell does a great job - you do get some cold air coming in from sides of every finger, that breathable material I imagine is to ensure your hands don't get clammy. Grip is solid and the glove has a very clean look to it. Easy on and off, though I wish the fabric elastic at the end of the glove was a bit longer.
Highly recommended. I'd ride this down to the mid 30's - as long as you're properly bundled in the torso these will keep you fingers warm enough.

I purchased this jacket to replace my aging Joe Rocket summer jacket - and wow what a difference.
The material is light and very breathable - the jacket is very well put together and the finish quality is fantastic.
The torso length is kinda short - it fits great on the bike and there's no bunching of the jacket while on the saddle - casually walking around unzipped its no issue, but when zipped up your t-shirt underneath might peak out the bottom.
the padded protection in the jacket is good enough - same CE rating as my other gear with very easy zipper access to swap them out - I did so for a more comfortable set from my other jacket. The back protector is good enough - I might upgrade to a higher CE rating in the future.
I opted for all black and glad I did - the HI-Viz option I can only imagine would be extremely intense - in black its sleek and the sun doesn't really heat it up at all.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I ride both on and off road, and was looking for a reasonably priced boot that could do both. This boot delivers quite well. It does take some time to break in, and I wouldn't mind seeing Fly upgrade their boot strapping mechanism - at maximum tightness it sometimes slips a few clicks.
They are very comfortable - riding all day with no discomfort.
Doesn't have the greatest feedback in the toes for shifting, but for the price its absolutely acceptable!
Yes, I recommend this product.

At first I was worried I ordered a size too small - the M was very tight getting on-off - nearly uncomfortably so. But when on, it felt good and secure. Happy to say after a week of daily commuting the pads have softened up and the fit is much better.
Love the look (I purchased Matte Black) of this helmet. Visibility is very good and because you can ride with goggles even with lid closed, riding with regular glasses is super comfortable.
Depending on your bike, the lid will make some noise (because of its design I imagine) and you could feel more buffeting at speeds. I adjusted the lid angle for my riding style with good results.
The screen has a tendency to fog in the mornings - right now I can open the screen a small bit and it does the trick - might be harder when the helmet is more worn...
Yes, I recommend this product.
