I purchased these boots in 2009- 25K miles and 4 years later they are still great. The sole and zippers have held up, they polish nice-although I do have a few worn areas from riding which is to be expected. I had/have no issue with the fit of the boot. I did add a gel insert since they came with a thin microbial one. They are waterproof. However-there is no air flow. Over 80 temps-your feet will get hot on a long ride. I did switch to a great moisture wicking summer sock from Klim (Thanks Revzilla) that helped quite a bit. In the cold weather-don't even try to use foot warmers-they will not get air-so-your feet will get cold. Learned that the hard way on a 4 hour 20 degree trip.

Ive been looking for riding pants for a few years. Not only for the protection but comfort. These are great (and look good on). I could probably go down a size, but kept them a size bigger for layering and due to my height (5'8). They have velcro closures on either side to cinch if needed. The airflow is pretty decent-if worn with a base layer. Although in the 95 degree heat this year i find myself wishing there were additional vents in the legs (in slower traffic). Side zippers make getting them on and off a breeze. deep pockets with zips as well. There is no armor in the hip area-only knee and lower leg-which is covered while riding.

Arai Signet-Q Helmet - Solid Colors The Signet-Q takes all the favorite features of the RX-Q and create a whole new series based on all the successes. On the outside, the Arai Signet-Q Helmet looks very similar to it's namesake, the RX-Q, but on the inside you can see and feel the difference. A longer shell shape on the Arai Signet-Q Helmet gives 5mm more space front to back allowing for a larger number of heads to fit comfortably. The shape of the Arai Signet-Q Helmet releases forehead pressures and eliminate hot spots for a more comfortable fit every time. This shape works best for riders with a long oval headshape. Additional Features of the Arai Signet-Q Helmet Both the top vent set and side exhaust cowls are direct carryovers from the RX-Q Brow vent ducting redirects to flow air across the temples DDL-4 exhaust vent to the 10mm wider eye port (5mm on each side) Long Oval Fit SAI MAX-Vision Brow Vent shield Clear Pinlock Max-Vision Brow Vent Pinlock lens included Elongated shell adds 5mm from front to back Long-Oval shape helps prevent Hot-Spot Multi-Density Single piece EPS liner Removable, replaceable, washable interior Dry-Cool Surface material for rapid displacement of heat and moisture away from your head and into the ventilation airflow for added comfort while riding and a quick dry between rides 5mm peel-away temple pads adds another level of customization, giving the helmet interior a little extra width when needed Enhanced for customizable micro fitment interior without the need to purchase extra interior components New FCS (Facial Contour Support) cheek pad design Innovative and exclusive spring support adds just the right amount of pressure when needed while being worn Meets or exceeds Snell and D.O.T. standards

I purchased this helmet after a 2 hour ride to Revzilla wearing my old full faced helmet. The noise and weight of my old helmet was doing me in-even with ear plugs. I couldnt take it anymore. I had my heart set on a modular-until I tried this Arai. Being female and having a long oval face this fit perfectly. Gone is the pressure at my temples. Now for the test...We set the helmet up right there in the showroom with the Sena and rode 2 hours home. The brow vents took some time to get used to because you see them above your eyes, but not a big deal. lots of air flow. The strap is a bit short-so its taking me some time to snap it into place. I don't feel the buffeting from the wind like I did with my other helmet. And I like the wide visor and pin lock. One negative-there isnt a lot of front room-so if you have a long nose-(which I didn't think I had..) riding 80 mph will push the visor to bang up on your face. Maybe that will change once the pads break in? I hope so. I haven't yet tried to remove padding. Its also very close for a mic. I have to push the microphone over to the side.

One of the biggest issues for me when riding in the Spring and Fall is air traveling down my neck. Scarves get too bulky. Balaclava's steam up my visor. This jacket is fantastic. I can adjust the collar as needed. The jacket arm length is great-I have long arms and the cuff actually comes to my wrist while riding. No cold air coming up my arms. With the liners in there is little air flow-unless you open the zippered vents, but since I get cold easily I really haven't had the need to. I have only had the jacket for 4-5 weeks so I cannot comment more on the jacket in temps less than 45 or without the liners. Plenty of pockets. Adjustment straps are a nice touch. The length is perfect-sitting below the waist so there isnt any low back exposure to the elements.

I have searched for a woman's 3 season glove for 2 years. Living in New York, the temperature can fluctuate from cool mornings to warm afternoons, downpours in the mountains etc.
This glove fits nicely about an inch or so over the wrist. I have long fingers and thankfully these fit with room to spare. Its not too bulky. I have only used them twice in the rain thus far, and have no complaints. Kept me dry.
I do not rec'd them for anything over 70 degrees-hands get a little toasty~ my error for not having a back up and not checking the weather. At 45 degrees riding at highway speeds- my finger tips started to feel cold after an hour 1/2, however normal travel to the office at 30-40 minutes I was comfortable.
