Just got these today and they fit great and seem very comfortable but the touch screen features on the finger tips doesn't work well. The way the finger tip of the glove is designed it interfered with the material making good contact with the phone screen hence it only worked if you have the tip of your finger flat on the screen which causes you to tap the wrong buttons. They should have wrapped the finger tip so that you can actually tap the screen instead of pressing on it. Airflow was great in this glove. I haven't decided if I am going to keep them.

I just installed this unit on a HJC helmet and it was fairly straightforward. My helmet doesn't have speaker pockets but the speakers that came with the unit were slim enough were it wasn't a issue. My main reason for purchasing this unit was the fact that it has a easily replaceable battery which if fairly inexpensive which should give me many years of use from this headset. The unit is very thin but It's easy to access the buttons. So far I have nothing bad to say about this unit.

I just received my windscreen today And installation was a snap on my DL1000 . Took it for a quick spin and definitely a big improvement over stock. My only issue is the hand guards touch the windscreen on full lock turns not my mirror stems as others have commented but that might be due to my mirror extensions that put the mirrors about an inch wider than stock. I find this to be a very minor issue but one that should have been thought of when designing the windscreen being so many V Stroms have the hand guards.

Just installed this on my 06 V Strom 1000 Great product that does what it's supposed to. Keeps debris from the front tire from hitting my oil cooler. Only thing keeping me from giving it a 5th star is don't know about longevity yet since its held on by 4 small screws.

I really like the quality and size of this case and as usual Revzilla shipped it super fast ,I had it the next day. The only negative I have is that Givi has the worst instructions on how to install the mounting bracket but I'm thinking its a European thing . I've purchased SW Motech accessories in the past and their instructions were horrible also.

REV'IT! Athos Air Vest In order to remain highly visible in traffic without compromising on airflow, REV'IT! developed the Athos Air vest as the summer edition of the popular Athos vest. The front and back panels are made of fully perforated PWR shell mesh EN471 certified fabric. Stretch panels at the side ensure that the Athos Air vest fits easily over any summer mesh jacket in the REV'IT! collection, so air flows directly to your body through 2 layers of mesh fabric

This vest is awesome if your looking to get noticed. The hi viz color and reflective material work great and it fits snug due to the elastic bottom which is nice because it doesn't flap in the wind.
I have 2 negatives 1st there are no pockets on this vest and they cover the pockets on your jacket if you are wearing it over one. 2nd the stiching on mine was not the greatest but I had my mom redo it rather than send it back.

Icon Super Duty 4 Boots The fourth iteration of our industry defining Superduty boot pays direct homage to it's SD1 patriarch. The visually defining rubber nub interface and clean pattern lines keep the boot's appearance smooth while hidden ghillie laces reduce snag potential. The new bottom unit provides increased support, durability, and grip while layered foam increases comfort. The midfoot support strap, with upgraded aluminum buckle, provides increased foot retention. Finally, the reduced toebox height provides a greater range of fitment. The Superduty 4, the next step in motorcycle footwear.

I've been wearing these shoes for a few days just to break them in and I have to say they are very comfortable. They have a nice style to them that can be worn out when your not riding. Only wore them once while riding,the weather here has been terrible,but they felt good.

This is a great jacket for warm weather riding although I'm still not convinced if the liner is good or bad. The one negative I have is with the back protector installed my back just sweats because there is no airflow to that area. I purchased the Hi Viz Yellow which obviously reflects the sun better than the darker colors and my buddies say they can see me at night very easily .
