I've used this charger for everything from a Porsche, connected via the cigar lighter, to a lawn mower, to an actual motorcycle. Following the mfrs guidelines for both the vehicles and the charger, I was able to top up any battery I've encountered. My only failure was a 10-yr-old battery that was so deeply discharged that it couldn't be saved. Highly recommend.

Wolfman Expedition Dry Duffel Bag Wolfman went all out on these duffels and came up with a great series of roll-top, 100 waterproof bags, designed specifically for motorcycle use. Wolfman upgraded the fabric to 22oz vinyl for the body and incredible 34oz for the sides and uses a waterproof webbing for the top opening to prevent water wicking into the bag. Wolfman also uses a new innovative design which allows the bag to easily expand, making loading and unloading a breeze. Features 100 Waterproof radio frequency welded seams Ultra tough 22oz vinyl body and 34oz vinyl sides (For years of use.)

I use this bag in lieu of a top case on my '14 R12GSA. The straps included with the bag work well with my standard GSA side cases, attaching to the tie-down points on the lids. If you make sure that the side case lids hinge the same direction, you have access to the contents of the side cases, without removing the bag. My only regret is that I didn't purchase the large bag, instead of the medium.

These are great pants for warm or wet weather. However, do order them with the expectation that you can wear them over even a pair of shorts. They are definitely sized to wear over only a base layer. If you order with that in mind, you will be very satisfied.

I am very pleased with my purchase. I have about 200 miles on these boots. I have relatively narrow feet, so I believe that the width is probably average, because it's a little wide on me. Length appears to be true to size. The boots are comfortable while riding and while walking. IBecause they are slightly wide on me, I change out of them, if I am going to be walking very much after I reach my destination. However, if your feet are closer to average width, you might be able to get by. I will update this review, when we've gotten through the hotter weather.
