Yes, a great helmet that is very quite and very aerodynamic. There is virtually no buffeting, which is great for long rides. Like any helmet you still have to wear plugs on long rides to prevent hearing damage. But you don;t have to on short rides. But, this helmet is hot. My son has it and I have the Shoei NeoTec. They are equally quite with virtually the same features. But, the NeoTec has much better air flow and is much cooler!!! Very noticeable here in Texas. And, the NeoTec is cheaper! We own both, and if he had to do it again, we'd just buy the NeoTec.

I have tried this on, but have not worn it riding. I wear a large riding jacket and bought a large rain suit. This fits comfortably over it. I bought it just carry in case I'm caught in the rain. It is quite a bit bulkier than I was expecting. Folded up it is about the size of a folded 10x10 tarp.

Saddlemen Profiler Seat Suzuki M50 Boulevard The Profiler. Superior comfort in the ultimate low-profile, slammed seat for two... Narrow styling, a thin profile and low riding height. Specially designed base allows the seat to drop down into the bike for the lowest riding position possible. Surprisingly comfortable pilot perch is made with Saddlemen's famous combination of variable density foam and SaddleGel in the driver's position, easing tailbone pressure and improving circulation for a smooth, comfortable ride. Note Image is for reference only, actual seat may vary slightly. Note Some seats may require stock hardware to be re-used for proper installation.

I have 2 motorcycles and bought this for my 2008 Suzuki M50. I wanted something more comfortable than the stock seat, but I can't tell this is any better. And, after test riding it, I can't return it. It was a waste of several hundreds of dollars. Probably the worse purchase decision I have ever made in my life. The quality, workmanship, etc. is all fine. And, the design certainly maintains "the lines" of the motorcycle. But the comfort isn't any better. The passenger seat is actually much less comfortable (which is hard to imagine). A manufacturer's sticker on the seat says passengers should always use a grab / hand strap (the stock seat has one) and to call them to obtain one. So, I called Saddleman, but it was like talking to stoned hippies on the west coast. It took several days and calls to reach anyone that felt capable of responding. And, I was told they would have to just make something from a strip of leather. One reviewer noted that the seat's gel padding retains heat. I live in Texas and agree! It felt like I was sitting on a frying pan for at least 15 minutes after it has been in the sun for a couple hours. My recommendation is keep what you have or get something else.
