Not cheap, but they look like designer jeans when off the bike. A comfortable, more traditional cut that ride a little lower than old fashioned Levi's but not as low as many new jeans. I like them!
Yes, I recommend this product.

Dainese Razon Leather Jacket The road flashing beneath your saddle, the wide open spaces of the prairie, the pulsing of the pistons you can feel in your arms and everywhere else as sunlight glints off the engine chrome, and choppers riding in formation roar down the road. Constructed in leather that is both thick and soft at the same time, the Razon jacket combines innovative technical solutions like patented Microelastic inserts with the essential style and strong character of the bikers who wear it. Provided with removable composite protectors, ventilation, and removable thermal lining, this jacket is also available in a Women's version. Protection Composite protectors certified to Standard EN1621.1/97 Ergonomics and Comfort Microelastic elasticated inserts Inserts in elasticated fabric Neck adjustment Waist adjustment Jacket-trousers fastening system Air inlets on the chest Removable thermal liner Sanitized lining Other Tutu cowhide leather Pocket for G1 and G2 back protector Pocket on removable liner 2 outside pockets Internal pocket

Well made with high quality leather that's thick but comfortable. I like that the logos are subtly sewn in black but wish there were some reflective strips on the sleeves. (For that reason I really wanted a Dainese Rapier jacket in black but they are out of stock and Revzilla wasn't expecting to get more for at least 4 months.) The tight fitting style makes the sizing very important. I'm 5'10", 170 lbs, and wear 34x32 pants. The size 52 is perfect. With the armor installed, I can wear a long sleeve tee with a fitted sweatshirt and still zip it up without struggling. Even without the liner it's not too big when I just wear a tee shirt.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Alpinestars CR-4 Gore-Tex XCR Boots Brand new for Fall 2011, the Alpinestars CR-4 Gore-Tex XCR Boots offer motorcycle protection with hiking-boot style and comfort. They'll get you through the worst of weather conditions thanks to the Gore-Tex XCR waterproof and breathable membrane. Although it is quite a mouthful, the Alpinestars CR-4 Gore-Tex Boots deliver in performance what they lack in brevity. That is to say, we think the Alpinestars CR4 Boots will be some of the most popular motorcycle boots for Fall 2011. Features Upper constructed from a combination of PU coated leather, suede and textile Breathable mesh lining on the collar and tongue and features waterproof and highly breathable GORE-TEX XCR membrane Foam backed, double density impact protector on the both sides of the ankle Internal toe and heel counter are layered under the leather Hiking boot style lace system with metal eyelets and top hooks Wrap-around rubber outsole reinforced with metal shank in the heel and a TPU shank in the Plantar Arch for enhanced rigidity PU coated leather shift area Reflective inserts on the rear of the boot Shock absorbing EVA midsole Mesh lined, anatomically profiled EVA foam footbed Note Anthracite/Red colorway is more Orange than Red.

I wanted an over the ankle boot that offered some protection without screaming "motorcycle". Having owned a lot of light hikers over the past 20 years, this one fit the bill. I sure hope the extra material on top for shifting, the dual shanks in the sole and the (nominal?) ankle protection make this worth the $200. If it was just a hiking boot, it would probably go for just over $100.
It seems well made and the materials are of adequate quality.
The sizing is right on. The insole in removable so I was able to put in a set of Superfeet for added support and comfort.
Yes, I recommend this product.
