I got these because, naively, I thought that a heel would A) be sexy, and B) help give me a couple precious inches since my bike is so tall.
To the first point: They are definitely sexy :) If you are a passenger, I recommend them. They look good, they feel like they have a lot of really solid protective components, etc. etc.
To the second point: Impossible to shift... Seriously a heeled boot is not a solution to gaining a couple inches in the driver's seat. Do not recommend for a driver. A small platform or lowered seat is a much better/safer solution if that's why you're after these.

I used to wear these liners under another pair of larger gloves and then had heated grips as well. I am small with small hands that get cold really fast, but with all that, my hands stayed very warm in negative and single digit temps.
The issue I had with that configuration was that since I was wearing two pairs of gloves, especially in heavy winds or intense conditions where I had a death grasp on the bike grips, the liners would slip around inside of my other pair of gloves, causing a lot of extra strain on my hands.
Eventually I removed the external gloves, and between my heated grips and these heated liners I still had really toasty hands, even in freezing temperatures.
I especially like these liners because they are light, so they give my hands lots of flexibility and freedom. I love them just by themselves. I don't wear any other gloves in the winter anymore. These get warm enough on their own. They are awesome and I definitely recommend them.
I have the jacket too, and swear by it. The wireless controller can mount nicely to the face of the bike, which makes adjusting it at speed super convenient and safe. I mounted mine to the brake fluid box near the right grip with heavy duty velcro, and it's perfect. Stayed on no prob even at high speeds.

Powerlet Rapidfire Jacket Liner With Dual Wireless Controller Package Powerlet's RapidFIRe Heated Jacket Liner packaged includes the Dual Wireless Remote Heat Controller. Controller receiver is pre-installed and Pre-synced for your convenience. Powerlet's RapidFIRe Heated Jacket Liner with CNC (Carbon Nano Core) heating uses Far Infrared technology to provide fast, deep, soothing warmth. Now the warmest liner on the market at 105 watts! Built in stuff sack and no annoying heating wires of any kind! Stay Warm While Riding Powerlet's 105 watt RapidFIRe heated jacket liners pack down to a very small size to fit on the bike when not in use. Not only the warmest heated clothing available, but ProForm stretch panels also make them the most comfortable. We recommend using the temperature controller with the RapidFIRe 105 watt jacket liners. The RapidFIRe Advantage The most unique feature is the heating system that is incorporated into every liner. Using the latest in Carbon Nanotube technology, Powerlet's Carbon Nano Core panels heat quickly and evenly without the hot spots or long heat times other conventional wired garments require. Additionally, Powerlet is the ONLY manufacturer to offer a dual heat setting that permits you to switch the total consumption to not exceed 60 watts. This means those of you who have bikes or vehicles that do not have the electrical output capacity to power a traditional or competitors liner can rest assured that the RapidFIRe line will get powered without draining your battery and leaving you stranded. Additionally, Powerlet once again incorporated the ProForm stretch panels that provide three key advantages non-binding movement, maximum heat transfer and simple sizing. While all three are very important, maximum heat transfer is perhaps the most important. For maximum heat transfer the heated garments must be close to the body. A long sleeve T-Shirt is recommended under the heated liners. A heavier layer can be worm over the garment. Other heated clothing manufacturers provided many sizes to attempt to create a snug fit. This often leads to a more complicated purchase and the potential improper fit if your weight changes. RapidFIRe 105 Watt Jacket Liner Features Dual Heat 105 / 60 Watt convertibility by a simple cable disconnect Wind and water resistant Polyurethane coated nylon outer shell ProForm stretch panels provide comfort and simple standard sizing Ultra thin design provides comfort and small storage Comfortable heated Polartec fleece collar wicks moisture Zippered pockets manage power cables Handy built in stuff sack allows for storage on the vehicle Unique sleeve finishing reduces bulk around wrists Glove connectors are located at the ends of the sleeves Heated on the front, back, arms and collar - full heat coverage Quick heat time of 20 seconds or less on the jacket liners Designed For A Lifestyle Powerlet designs heated garments for people who rely on their heated clothing for both comfort and safety. Like their customers, they enjoy a lifestyle utilizing convenient modern electronics and wear our heated gear for commutes to work and trips across the country. Built For A Lifetime Powerlet seeks the highest quality materials and craftsmanship. All of their heated clothing products are developed and tested in the USA by people who ride regularly. Quality components and attention to detail ensure Powerlet products resist wear and corrosion to last a lifetime. All Powerlet RapidFIRe heated clothing carries a lifetime warranty on the electrics and a lifetime warranty on manufacturing defects.

I bought two of these jackets, one for me and one for my boyfriend. I originally got us FirstGear heated jackets, but they felt restrictive, were too short in the waist and sleeves, and didn't fit comfortably in general. Since I got myself a Small and my boyfriend a Medium in FirstGear and they didn't really work out, we went up a size for the Powerlets. I ended up with a Medium and him with a Large. The Powerlets were so, so, so comfortable, soft and cozy, long enough in the arms to cover gloves, long enough in the waist to thoroughly cover lower back. They were a little bit baggy though and I think they are supposed to fit snugly to keep the warmth pressed against your body, so I wonder if we should have stuck to our original sizing. I really don't know. However, we both just ended up wearing a snug-fitting light stretchy-ish jacket or t-shirt on top of the Powerlet to keep them pressed to us, and that ended up working just fine.
For reference I am 5'7" 120 lbs, athletic build, and my boyfriend is 6' 175 lbs. We both usually get medium t-shirts.
We got the jackets for a 2500 mile November motorbike trip from Oklahoma to the Grand Canyon. We anticipated temps in the 20s-40s, but ended up with freakish temps in the negatives and single digits due to an unusually harsh winter storm blowing through.
The GoPro was completely frozen over, our windshields and visors were completely frozen over to the point that we couldn't see through them, there was snow and ice everywhere, etc. It was really cold.
We had on 4-5 layers each. Smartwool long underwear, Powerlet heated jacket, a light jacket or snug t-shirt over that, another light jacket sometimes, and our outwear motorbike jackets.
I had the Powerlet heated gloves too, under my regular gloves, so I was generating warmth for my torso and for my hands.
As it turns out, there is some synchronization required between the wireless controller and the gear, and for the first couple days of the trip, I didn't know this and so I was riding without the heat turned on :) It was so miserable. I was so upset because I thought the gear wasn't working and I was so freezing that it was almost unbearable.
...Then I discovered the synchronization trick. It was unbelievable what a difference it made. I was now TOASTY warm, even in those crazy cold temperatures.
I get really cold really easily. I ride a BMW R1100GS, which is really an adventure bike and has a pretty naked front end so there is a lot of air flow on the pilot. In this case there was a lot of really super cold air flow :)
It is insane how well this jacket worked against that. I never felt like there were "hot patches" or anything like that, that I have heard from reviews of other heated gear. It made and kept me warm in a very natural, all-over kind of way.
I attached the controller to my brake fluid refill cover on the right handlebar using some extra-powerful velcro. It worked perfectly and was so convenient to get to.
I really cannot recommend this jacket enough if you anticipate cold temperatures and want to stay warm. My boyfriend felt the same way. He was skeptical at first because he's like too tough for heated gear or something, but after we had to ride through those temperatures he was so grateful that we ended up getting them. They really were our salvation!!

I bought this sissy bar bag for my 2001 Suzuki VZ800 Marauder. I found the hardware and strapping VERY accommodating. I was extremely pleased with it. It cinched down and secured 100%. There are lots of adjustable bits and bars and straps that come with this bag to make it extra customized and secure in its fitting.
I also found all the roomy compartments very handy. I know there is an extra-large size that would have been even roomier, but I did fine with this size bag (plus saddlebags) for a week long trip. Side compartments are really handy for things like frogg toggs, wallets, camera, etc.
This bag also comes with a pull-out waterproof cover that cinches down around the bag. I did find that this cover was not exactly 100% waterproof though... This is why I marked a 4 for performance. It's way better than no protection at all, but all the outermost pockets on the bag do end up getting damp in the rain. Not super soaked, but damp.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I love these gloves even though they run just the tiniest bit small. If you're wavering between two sizes, I would size up one. That being said, I do appreciate the snug fit because it allows my hands to be agile and responsive when they need to be. Love the design! Air flows through them very well. Great summer riding gloves.

Ordered this jacket with the pink accents hoping for a little added feminine flair to the plain blacks I'd been wearing. It's perfect and I love it. One of my favorite investments ever.
I am 5'7", 120 lbs, athletic build. I ordered a small and fits perfectly. Love the longer length in the arms and down the back. Makes me feel very covered/protected. Arms reach down to my gloves, back doesn't leave anything exposed back there.
I ended up taking out all the pads because they felt a touch bulky, and especially in the summer with the heat I wanted as much ventilation as possible. I love that I still have flexibility in my arms and torso when I wear this jacket. Also getting a lot of use out of all the pockets! Love the style, love the detailing, overall this jacket is really awesome. Very happy with it!
Yes, I recommend this product.
