I love the style of these jeans, as I haven't seen anything else like them. I had to order one size larger because I've tried on the D6, and they were way too tight in the thighs. I wear a 36, and the 38 has enough room for my former powerlifting thighs, but I cannot wear these without a belt. They are very comfortable off the bike, but do bunch up a bit behind the knee on the bike. I can wear these for trips around town, but I would loose circulation in my legs if I tried touring in them. In all, they do the job they were designed for well; city riding.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I was disappointed with my A-stars glove, they had a seam tear for no apparent reason, so I ordered a cheaper glove for a temporary set. These gloves fit very well, they are true to size and very light, but I would like a lot more protection. I may be a bit picky about my gloves because I'm a mechanic, but the small amounts of rubber protection don't fell at all heavy duty. These gloves look good, and I'm happy to find a set that fit perfectly, but I am definitely in the market to pick up a pair that feel more substantial.

This jacket flows a ton of air! I have worn it on a 68 degree morning with temps expected to get into the 70's and I still got chills. I bought it right after the summer heat, but I think it will be perfect when summer comes around again. The sleeves feel a little bit long, but the armor sits where it should. I upgraded the back armor, but I think the genuine viper back protector would be a better fit. The Icon labeled one seems a little small for an XL jacket. All in all, I love the style (I got the green), and it does what it's supposed to well.

Okay, first these gloves are a Euro fit. I wear an XL in American sizes, but a 2XL in these. After breaking them in, they are very comfortable. They are goo at blocking out the rain, but their temp tolerance is not particularly low. On a day in the 40's, I get about 30 minutes before my fingertips are numb. Under 40 degrees, I have to use my silk liners to reach that same 30 minute thresh hold. Fortunately, my commute is slightly less than 30 minutes, but I do want to add that these gloves DO NOT have a windshield wiper on the thumb. I bought these because at the time that was listed as a feature. Nope. Good protection though, and I still get to ride when other folks are looking at me like I'm crazy, so overall it's a decent glove.

This helmet was a replacement for an AGV K3. I discovered that my head was a bit closer to round than I thought. I did a measurement, and found that my head is only 1/2" longer than it is wide, and this helmet fits me perfectly. I love the matte black, and the Spies graphics really pop. It is very quiet for a race helmet, and the airflow is best in a 3/4 or tuck position. Also, this is my first Pinlock visor, and the vision is very clear with no fogging. I work at night, so I ride a lot at night, and I have not had any vision issues. I intend to stick with Pinlock and HJC for my next helmet/visor.

Yoshimura RS-4 Slip-On Exhaust Kawasaki Ninja ZX-6R / ZX-636 While the RS-4 was debuted as Yoshimura's premier exhaust for off-road racing applications, they couldn't stop there. They have mated this sophisticated and stylish muffler to compliment the styling of the new Kawasaki Ninja ZX-6R. The RS-4 pentagonal shaped muffler features a carbon fiber end-cap, two-staged stepped baffle and striking good looks. The RS-4 muffler features a new front cap design that functions as a poly-resonant chamber, thus creating a more quiet muffler with improved mid-to-top end power. Along with improving sound and power, this system moves the muffler weight lower and closer to the bike for improved handling and weight distribution. Note This exhaust is CARB compliant. Please check local laws before purchasing. Some modifications may be prohibited in some states.

I had my slip-on options down to the TwoBros, and the Yoshimura RS-4. I choose the RS-4 because I was worried about noise. After the install, which was very easy, I'm happy for my choice. I love the looks, and it's only slightly louder than stock. I was also surprised to feel an extra kick in low gear on acceleration. Beautiful exhaust, and it does what it's supposed to.

I really like the AGV Sport pants. This is my second pair with my first being the camo print. The material is a bit heavy with all the Kevlar panels, but they are comfortable, and not too hot even in 100 degree TX weather. I have learned to order these one size large in the waist and inseem, and these seemed to be cut slightly longer then the camo pair. After a wash, they shrunk almost to perfection, but I stll turn up the cuffs one time to keep from stepping on the heels. Overall, good protection, and great looking cargo pants.

I got the blue iridium. It looks sweet on my AGV Diesel Full-Jack Helmet, and it keeps the UV rays out. It sucks having to switch back to my clear visor at night, but it's an easy process, and there have been no scratches even though I carry the spare visor in my backpack. I wish it was a bit cheaper to buy, but it is a great visor.

I had to switch from a 70 series to a 60 series to use this tire. The grip is very good, and with the new profile, the steering is a bit quicker. It is a bit more sensitive to slight input, but the turn in is solid, direct, and no fuss. Overall, I'm happy with my new front/rear tires.

I bought my bike used, and the rear tire was pretty much bald on the left side. I upgraded with this, and there is a world of difference. The grip is very good, and I can feel everything that is going on with the rear tire. It is a pretty sensitive tire. I have felt it loose and grab traction a couple of times on a slick spot on a turn, or coming to a stop. This tire does it's job, and you can definitely feel it when it does.
