I wanted to upgrade to a fall jacket from my summer textile jacket, which became too cold to wear below 65 degrees F. I bought this one because it was affordable, looked sweet and nothing offers better protection than leather.
I recommend this jacket because it has proven versatile and comfortable. It blocks out wind extremely well and I've ridden it in below 40 weather and was ok with a few base layers. The vents are set up nicely but I have a feeling in the summer this will be too warm of a jacket. Oh and it looks great and much more expensive than it actually is. The leather took a while to break in and it was stiff for a few weeks. Now fits like a glove and is very comfortable. The protection seems solid enough in the shoulder and elbows, however I highly recommend swapping out the back protector (thin foam pad) for something more solid.
It fits fairly short so if you're a medium-small build, it's just about right. I'm 5'10" and about 170 lbs and bought a size 40, which fits me very well, maybe a tiny bit small. With a few layers (base layer, t-shirt + sweatshirt) I started to feel stuffed into my jacket, but was still comfortable.
One gripe that I have is that the forearm zippers, which allow airflow, have some kind of plastic stitching on the inside that starts to rub and poke the forearms if I'm just in a T-shirt. If I'm in a long-sleeve, it's not noticeable. Either way, it's something I got used to. Can't beat the bang for the buck on this one.
Yes, I recommend this product.

The fit and finish on these gloves is excellent. Putting on the gloves feels like you're slipping your hand into warm buttery goodness. They fit a bit larger than I expected (usually my hand is medium in US gloves and large in euro or japan), but are still comfortable enough. These aren't full-out winter gloves, but very comfortable in the range of 40-65 degrees F. Anything above 65 and the hands start to sweat.
They look fantastic and the gauntlet fits well over my jacket, blocking the wind. Well worth the A-Stars premium. I've bought cheaper (crappier) gloves before, only to waste $80. Go with these for the fall / spring riding and you won't go wrong.
Yes, I recommend this product.

AGV K3 Helmet - Silver The K-3 is near the top end of the AGV entry level range. GP-tech lines and Valentino Rossi replica helmet graphics make this the ideal helmet for young riders and fans of the racing world. The only full-face thermoplastic model in the agv range, the K-3 is the perfect choice for riders in search of a safe, high-quality helmet with attractive design at a modest price.The K-3 design is inspired by the latest AGV developments starting from the Stealth, S-4, and Ti-Tech and continuing with the Blade/Blade LX and GP-Tech that have so clearly and distinctive defined the companys style. This makes the helmets immediately recognizable and distinguished from all the other proposals on the market. In the same way, the differences with the helmet that the K-3 has replaced are equally evident.

Helmet is extremely comfortable, great visibility and noise isn't too loud. The chin guard is very flimsy and had tendency to fall off. Does not match the good quality of the rest of the helmet. This is my only gripe with it. Then again, for the price, I really can't complain, it's a great deal. Revzilla rocks as always.
Yes, I recommend this product.
