Givi Monokey Trekker Pannier 46 liter or 33 liter case constructed from aluminium with black plastic and top opening. Available in two versions, with a capacities of 46 LT (TRK46N) and 33 LT (TRK33N), the Givi TREKKER bags are the perfect solution for the bikes equipped with exhaust pipes on only one side. By affixing the smaller case to the side with the exhaust pipe and the larger on the other side, in many cases you can solve the issue of asymmetry (a problem that you might find using traditional side bags). Thanks to special selectors placed inside the bags, you can convert each version to either to fully open the entire lid or only the uppermost smaller opening (very practical for quickly accessing items from the bag, avoiding any ill timed spilling of the whole contents). Elaborately trimmed in steel foil, these bags are not necessarily specific to just enduro bikes, they can also be a luxurious accessory on the touring bikes. Sold each. 33 Liters Dimensions 20.7L x 9.5W x 16.2H Max load 22 lbs Empty weight 12.76 lbs Plastic and aluminum construction 46 Liters Dimensions 20.7L x 12.2W x 16.2H Max load 22 lbs Empty weight 12.76 lbs Plastic and aluminum construction Note Mounting hardware sold separately

I'd just recently purchased a pair of used 33ltr Givi Trekker cases to use as panniers so I bought this 46ltr to complete the set. I've been on a couple short overnight camping trips with it and I couldn't be happier. These very well thought out cases. The carry handle is comfortable, the latches work smooth and they're watertight and dustproof. To top it off, they look fantastic on the bike. My only complaint would be price. They're bit high for what they are. However, in the long run I should save money because these will probably snap right onto whatever bike I buy next and who wants to buy new panniers every time they switch bikes?

Shoei Neotec Modular Helmet Building upon the success of their previous modular helmets, the Shoei Neotec Helmet was designed with long distance and ADV touring in mind. The innovative tri-composite shell has been designed to provide riders with a smooth and quiet ride while reducing, lift, weight and increasing overall safety. The shell of the Neotec has also been designed to house the internal drop-down sun visor, eliminating the need to reduce the thickness of the EPS liner and potentially compromise safety. An integrated face shield shield and chinbar pivot point reduces the number of moving parts, mitigates wind noise and enables riders to close both the chinbar and face shield in the same motion. Shoeis stainless steel 360 Pivot Locking System secures the chinbar when it is in the closed position and the dual-layer EPS liner provides enhance impact absorption and is channeled to facilitate ventilation. From the shell to EPS to the 3D formed comfort liner, the Shoei Neotec is purpose built to provide unrivaled rider comfort and safety. Perfect for nearly any type of ride and rider, the Neotec is the ultimate in touring performance. Shoei Neotec Helmet Features Face Shield Features Easily operable lever mechanism Anti-fog, anti-scratch, 99 UV blocking Pinlock-ready CNS-1 faceshield Wider and taller than the CX-1V that it replaces Includes Pinlock insert 3D injection molding process ensures a distortion-free view Ventilation and Aerodynamics Vortex generator vents pull air through helmet 276 more airflow than Multitec Added inlets and outlets Vents are flush against helmet to maintain aerodynamics 5-Ply Shock-Absorbing Fiber Shell 3 shell sizes AIM Multi-Composite construction Lightweight yet strong Shell-integrated spoiler reduces lift and drag during high-speed riding Dual EPS Liner Multi-density EPS for optimal protection Two vents funnel fresh air through the EPS liner Dual liner channels route and disperse air evenly throughout the helmet EPS liner in chin bar Interior Fully removable 3D interior liner Top center pad is removable and washable Improved cheekpad design allows better fit with eyeglasses Included chin curtain can be inserted into the chin bar to reduce turbulence and noise All Neotec Helmets sold in the US have a double D-ring closure Note Due to manufacturer restrictions, Shoei products can only be shipped to addresses within the United States

I can't believe the reviews this thing has received. I also cannot believe that this helmet is advertised as a 'touring' helmet.
Let me start by saying I bought this as a replacement for my five year old HJC IS Max BT. I wear glasses and do a lot of multi-state touring in all weather conditions.
Noise: I wanted a quieter modular with the same features as the HJC. With all the vents open, it's actually louder than the HJC. With them closed, it's a bit quieter. Ear plugs are still needed though. I have not tried it without the chin curtain in place yet.
Rain performance: This is absolutely terrible. It's acceptable at speed but in town it fogs my glasses very badly. With the chin vent open, rain drops spit across on my nose and it still fogs. With the visor set to the cracked 'city' position, water enters the helmet and gets sucked up across the screen. This never happened in my old HJC and is the reason I scored it so poorly. Doesn't it rain in Japan? I live on a gravel road and I am not wearing contacts when I ride.
Fit: This is spot on and it's very comfortable. I wore a 2XL in the HJC but an XL with the Shoei. They appear to be the same size. Mine is gloss white and the paint looks nice.
Features: It's got lots of vents and they do work well. I'm not sure how important that is in a modular though. I'm used to just simply flipping modulars open if it gets too warm. The sun visor is nice but the switch is an awkward place. I much prefer the location and function of the top mounted, spring loaded HJC visor. The snap for the excess chin strap is also in a bad place, almost tucked up under the neck padding.
Revzilla was great (as always). Too bad the helmet just does not work at all for me. I require a helmet that is safe to use in the rain. I regret buying it and will probably find another HJC IS Max BT to replace it.
