Great headset, extremely easy to use, took me a few minutes to install, but in the end it worked out great, it does come with 2 microphones, one for full face helmets, and one for 3/4s. I had to use the 3m velcro sticky tapes that came with it that get put where the earpieces are, the ones that were in my helmet came off really easy, just mentioning. Battery life is good, and I like that you can take off the unit itself to charge. I do have sort of a complaint, I think some others have mentioned it too. It's not very bassy, Not a huge issue unless you are listening to music, and it's to be expected, the speakers are tiny. If I am riding on the highway, even though I have a nice helmet, wind does get in it, so it does make it a little harded to hear. I ended up putting in the foam riser pads, that come with it, in order to put the speakers closer to my ears, which worked better. This is where another issue comes in. As of right now, if you don't have the speakers perfectly placed inside your helmet(i.e. one is closer than the other or higher/lower) or if you hear better in one ear, you will have a balance problem, I think most phones you can download an app that will correct that, but I am not sure if it'll transfer through the bluetooth. The good news is that from surfing the Sena forums, the unit is firmware upgradable and they are looking to implement sound balance into the speakers. That's it, great product, very easy to use, and I will be buying one for my gf's helmet as well.

This backpack is great, I was originally looking at the OGIO Mach series, but ended up going with this one because it of the rain cover. Like one of the other reviewers mentions, it doesn't have a place to put a laptop in, sure you could probably get a sleeve and throw a 13 inch in there. Personally I probably wouldn't do it, but overall this backpack is great, comfy straps, chest buckle, inner 2 pockets, + it's expandable. I haven't used the helmet carrier pouch, but that will come in time. It looks like you are wearing a parachute since it sits very slim to your body. I can easily fit my work clothes, a bottle of water, an old sandwich, some beef jerky, and my 9mm. Overall great backpack, and I look forward to using it for years to come.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Shark Speed-R Ike Helmet SHARK is proud to present a new philosophy. Utilizing all SHARKs expertise in safety, innovation and function the SPEED -R is a helmet specifically designed to meet the passionate demands of un-faired motorcycle riders. Double blade air spoiler positioned at the rear of the Speed-R, it allows the air to flow above and below the blade, hence the dual venturi effect to extract warm air from the helmet. Spoiler/stabilizer at its rear base trim the Speed-R has a spoiler, which stabilizes the helmet and the cancels the buffering effect. The immediate benefit is no air turbulence running inside the helmet and greater stability at a steady speed. Features Latest generation composite long fibre construction Integrated, drop down sun visor Extensive wind-tunnel testing to perfect aerodynamics and ventilation system for use with naked road bikes Double cavity rear spoiler creates faster air circulation to drastically reduce fogging Rear deflector stabilizer reduces helmet buffeting Faceshield varies in thickness and is optically correct, scratch resistant and anti-fog coated Completely remove and washable COOLMAX lining Shark Easy Fit glasses system offers wearers a comfort lining which has a pre-tted system to accommodate all types of glasses ECE 2205 and DOT approved Two shell sizes

Great helmet, fits like a glove, I've had trouble finding the right size helmet, and was worried that I might have to return it, I'm 23inches around my head and large fit perfectly. The colors match great with my Atlantis 4 jacket and gloves, and my brand new f800r. I love the design of the helmet and the visor is great, doesn't distort your vision, and the inner visor is great since I wear glasses. Comes with the chin piece which was great, easy to put on and off. I look forward to using it for a long time.
