I had originally tried to skimp and bough the microUSB direct to battery harness and a stand-alone RAM mount, however that setup died on me within the first year. I replaced it with this and I immediately noticed the much thicker cable running to the battery. I also appreciate the flip-up cover over the Powerlet port.
I didn't have any trouble mounting it to my handle bars, on my bike the bolts on the bottom were accessible without having to remove anything from the bike.
The rubber padding they provide for matching the diameter of the mount to the diameter of your bars seems a little cheap. I wish they had come up with an easier and more professional looking solution there.
Once installed it feels solid and secure. The Powerlet port works as advertised. So far I'm very happy with it.

I needed a pad to keep my kickstand from sinking into softer ground. Added this on to a bigger order. It's easy to use, it works as advertised, the bright orange color makes it easy to spot even in the dark so you don't loose/forget it.
Not much to say because it's not a complicated piece of kit, but it works well and I'd buy it again if I ever needed a replacement.

This is a fantastic cellphone holder. Takes just minutes to install and adjust to your phone. Easy to get your phone in and out, and once it's in it stays in, very secure.
The only problem I had was that the vibrations from the bike apparently destroyed the mechanical focus of my rear-facing camera. Oh well. Now that phone is my dedicated GPS system. Was more a problem of the phone than the holder, any holder would have done the same over time.
Pair with a Powerlet Powerbar so you can charge your phone/GPS while you're riding.

I originally bought this because I wanted to power a phone/GPS mounted to my handle bars. I thought it would be cheaper than putting in a PowerLet port, and I was right. Unfortunately, the little plastic cap for the micro USB connector is easy to lose, and the connector started to corrode very quickly. I didn't think it would be such an issue since I keep my bike under cover, but I guess it doesn't take much humidity to corrode the connector.
After 6 months it would kind of work if you pulled on the connector a bit... but the intermittent/unreliable connection became a problem for my phone/GPS which kept dying on longer trips. By the one year mark I couldn't get it to work at all.
I replaced it with a handlebar-mounted Powerlet port and RAM mount combo. First thing I noticed when installing was that the Powerlet port has a MUCH thicker cable going to the battery. There is also a flip-up cover to protect the Powerlet port itself. You have to separately buy a powerlet to microUSB connector, but then you can disconnect the connector for weatherproof storage, or simply replace it without having to rewire the bike.
If you're trying to go the cheap route like I did, you might find yourself having to re-spend in a year if you buy this. I recommend spending the extra money for a permanent Powerlet port.

One of the reasons I purchased this bag is that the description implied that it would support a water reservoir. Something like this: http://www.revzilla.com/motorcycle/ogio-water-reservoir
However the "Built-in sip tube and headphone exit ports" turned out to be just one port, and it connects to a pocket sized perfectly for a phone or media device, but too small for any size reservoir I've ever seen. It does not seem to connect to the main compartment or any compartment large enough to fit a reservoir. So I'm really not sure why they even suggest a sip tube.
Not a big deal, I don't really need a reservoir in my tank bag.
But then the snap button holding on the map pocket was so tight that it literally ripped off when I tried to unsnap it. It didn't tear the fabric, the metal rivet on the map side ripped apart. So now I have one half still hanging on the pocket and one half stuck to the bag-side of the snap.
I was expecting much better quality, and it looks like a nice bag, but just out of the box I'm not impressed with the quality. I will probably return it.

It is certainly a useful and valuable guide to have, but watch out for inaccuracies. Read entire procedure through before you begin. There are a couple places where the order of steps just does not make sense. It's easy enough to reason about what the correct order should be, however it makes you wonder what other mistakes they may have made.

This is a pretty cool product, it can connect to pretty much any style of pants that has belt loops. It's especially useful if you don't have Dainese pants to match your jacket. I found it a little difficult (but not impossible) to attach it to a pair of pants while you're wearing them. It's easier to do ahead of time and then leave it set up. I was also a little disappointed that the build quality doesn't seem to be as high as the jackets. After the first day of wearing it I started to notice some nylon hairs come loose around the seam with the zipper. It doesn't appear to be a serious problem, the seam is still secure. And it's happening on the inside so when you're wearing it you wouldn't see the threads, but I'm always pulling them out just so they won't get caught in the zipper.
Yes, I recommend this product.

This is my first motorcycle helmet, so I don't have a whole lot to compare it to. I tried on about a dozen different helmets at two shops to find the right size/shape. Other helmets were lighter or had more features, but those were also a lot more expensive. This one seems to offer excellent protection for the price, and it's comfortable and cool enough for me to wear all day in the sun as I practice my technique on a motorcycle. I've also gotten a lot of positive comments on the aesthetics. The chameleon color effect looks great.
Yes, I recommend this product.
