There are three things to consider with a motorcycle cover.
RAIN: Basically if you're covering your bike, it's going to get rained on eventually. So buy a cover that's actually waterproof like this one. It's also vented so it doesn't turn into a jungle.
COVERAGE: This thing comes all the way to the ground (Size MD on a Triumph Daytona) so people can barely see the bottom of the wheels. The boring look of the cover almost makes it look like a grill at a glance. It keeps your bike out of sight and out of mind.
SECURITY: There's a basic strap and grommet thing to keep the cover on, and if you buy the alarm it's a discreet thing that is cheap, super loud, and easy to install.
Bottom line - You should get this cover.

In direct sunlight, your face will be slightly visible. I'm sure that's how it is for all mirror visors but for the amount of money I paid, it felt like it should be totally impossible to see through. Most of the time it's good, and I would definitely recommend it if you want the look. I included a comparison photo, one in direct sun and one normal, so you can see what I'm talking about.

I'm 5'7"/130 and wear a size 8 shoe. Got the 41 and they fit just right. Ankle protection feels good without getting in the way. Stayed dry in some light rain. They get a bit hot if you're sitting in the sun, but not any more than the regular shoes I wear. I'm sure what other boots I could get like this one that wouldn't heat up. Not too worried.
For some reason the stitching in the back of the heel was a bit scratchy. I tried wearing them with a couple different pairs of old socks that were kicking around in my drawer, and found one that worked. I think for these boots to be comfortable, you kind of need socks that go all the way up the boot (like halfway up to your knee). Also the red lining bled onto the socks a bit. I don't care at all but just FYI.
I chose these over the Alpinestars Fastlane shoes. They were cool, but didn't come up as high and weren't waterproof. The one thing I do miss is that the X-Cube does not have reflective tape anywhere. Probably more important to have it other places, but still. Would have been nice.

I'm 5'7"/130, wear 30/30 pants, and got the 46. I chose these over the Fly Butane pants, which were bulkier and high-waisted. Yes the price is kind of high. But you get awesome fit, good protection, and waterproof. That was everything I wanted. I paid for it, and I don't regret it.
The fit is just right. Without the thermal liner, I can comfortably wear a pair of shorts, and kind-of-comfortably wear a pair of pants. They may not have great ventilation but they don't seem to gather much heat sitting in the sun. And despite being fairly skinny, the knee/shin protection fits well. The hip padding doesn't get in the way of anything.. not sure how much impact it would actually reduce if I got hit though. Don't really feel like dropping any more money on hip protection after paying what I did for these pants though.
Also, I wear these with the TCX X-Cube boots and it seems like a pretty good combo. They do hike up like some other reviewers mentioned, but it's not an immediate process, and it's easy to just pull them back down every so often.

True to Size

I'm small, 5'7"/130 and I got a Large. The fit is a bit tight, but I feel like the XL would be too big. I had a minor low-speed fall, and I'm not sure the protective pad on the heel of the palm is quite placed right.. it's kind of off to the side. I think it probably took some of the impact though. Definitely a feature worth having.
They do allow you to feel the controls well, and I think they look pretty decent. Not too flashy, and the capacative touch material does indeed work. Nice extra feature.
