RevZilla Staff Premium T-Shirt Lovingly concocted in 2007 and named El Moto Diablo for its geared theme and devilish lines, the RevZilla Staff Tee Shirt has been part of our lineup from the beginning. It's also the same blue shirt in every video that Anthony has been rocking since Day One of RevZillaTV on Youtube. People love to point out that Anthony doesn't ever change his clothes. I guess when it works you stick with it. The tee is screen-printed on a high thread-count blank that is anything but one of those throw away tees you get free at the ball game. We wear tees a lot - almost every day - and we are very particular about how they fit, feel and hold up wash after wash. Sizing is true to size - if anything they run a hair on the small side. Show your love for TeamZilla. Make a statement. Boom.

I actually won this T-shirt from Revzilla. Surprisingly this isn't some junkie shirt meant for advertising. It's probably one of the best fitting shirts I own. Great material.

Michelin Commander 2 Rear Tires Peformance Features Unrivaled tire life Michelin tests with a Harley-Davidson Electra Glide Classic prove a rear Michelin Commander II is capable of covering up to 40,000 kilometers (Almost 25,000 miles). The Michelin Commander II creates a new standard in regards to durability, without making compromises in wet weather grip, maneuverability or stability Silica Rain Technology integrates silica into the compound of the tire tread in order to prevent all forms of uneven wear The exclusive architecture of the Michelin Commander II brings both maneuverability and stability. The tires rigid, high-density carcass improves maneuverability, while the aramid fiber crown ply of the rear tire enhances resistance and lightness for impeccable stability, even at high speeds Numerous longitudinal grooves of the new tire's tread pattern optimize water dispersal for outstanding wet weather grip Independent tests show that the Michelin Commander II rear tire lasts almost twice as long its main competitors, the Metzeler ME 880 and the Dunlop D407/408. Technological Features Amplified Density Technology A highly dense, more-rigid tire casing, which helps deliver excellent feedback and handling Aramid tread plies on the rear tire resist centrifugal growth, reduce weight and provide excellent stability All-new rubber compounds for remarkable wet grip, without compromising durability Square bead wires improve casing rigidity, handling and ease of installation Styling Features Unique tread pattern for head-turning looks Premium sidewall treatment complements cruiser styling Please Note Check your manufacturer's specifications for required load ratings when replacing OE Tires. Please Note 200/55R17 tire is a radial tire.

Upgraded from some Dunlop 404's. These are amazing. Bike is very responsive now. Has lots of traction wet or dry. Only about 1,000 miles on the tires so far so no real comment on tread life. Well worth the extra money over cheap tires, I have so much more confidence in my bike now. My old girl feels like a sportsbike!

I read other reviews regarding the sizing, if you're unsure of the sizing go up. I usually wear a medium and based off my hand measurements I went with a Large. Large was just slightly small for the first couple wears. Now they are perfect. Probably should have gone with the short cuff glove based on how this one fits with my jacket but overall they are great gloves. Fit well, ventilation is very good, almost feels like I'm not wearing gloves at all! The little finger grippers wear off fairly quickly. Not a big deal. These will be a great warm weather glove.

Jacket fits well, fits snug with all the liners in and still tight enough with all the liners removed. I get compliments on the jacket if I'm just wearing it out. Tested down to low 40F's and kept me warm as can be. Worn as hot as mid 80F's so far. I feel it may lack a little ventilation for really warm summer days, I'll find out in a couple months. I could probably remove my windshield and get some more airflow thru the jacket if needed. So far I am extremely pleased.

Works great. Unfortunately my commute puts me staring directly into the sun, thus I purchased the darkest shield. Works great, if the sun is really intense I throw on some sunglasses under the visor. Keeps my face cooler in the summer than the standard clear shield.

Bought these as I needed some cold weather gloves (a 32F trip will make realize the ability of your gear very quickly). These stop all wind and are waterproof in a good steady rain (haven't rode through a downpour yet). I have used them down to the 40F's but nothing in the freezing realm so far, keep me nice and warm. They still seem a little stiff as far as gripping the throttle goes, I could use a little more curve to the grip. Secondly the plastic knuckle protection doesn't really cover all of your knuckles. You can see in the photo that it's stops about halfway across the pinky and index knuckles. Still some good protection there and doesn't affect comfort at all. Overall I am very please and they will do the job of keeping my hands protected/warm/dry very well.

I needed some new grips and went with these on a whim. Didn't want to pay extra shipping to buy the ones I really wanted that Revzilla didn't carry. I must say I really like these grips. Very soft and grippy. A slight "barrel" shape conforms to my palms well. They do help with vibrations as well. For the money they work great, had about 400 miles on them so far. Seems like some of the finish might be coming off but I'm not too worried.

Good pants, per recommendations here I ordered a size up from what I normally wear so these will fit over my pants. Still fit pretty snug around the knees but this helps keep the kneepads in place. So far these pants are WARM!! I have been wearing them without any of the liners and its in the 40F-50F. Great wind protection. Vents help quite a lot (we'll see when it starts hitting 90F weather). Haven't tested how waterproof they are yet, hopefully the pockets stay waterproof as this is usually where my cell phone resides. My only gripe is I wish the zipper went up the leg more, as it stands you cant put boots on before the pants.

A couple weeks in and a couple hundred miles so far. These boots are very light, great traction when back peddling, and very warm. Haven't tested out how waterproof they are yet. My feet stay nice and toasty in them on some cooler 40F mornings. I could have used them a couple weeks back when it was 32F when I left for my morning commute. Great product for the $$$, lets hope they hold up for awhile.
