Metzeler Sportec M7RR Rear Tires The Metzeler Sportec M7 RR is engineered to empower riders with a sporty riding style who use their motorcycles in all conditions, weather and temperatures. The M7RR is derived from Metzeler's experience in Road Racing, including the Isle of Man TT and the Metzeler Ulster Grand Prix and features completely new profiles, structure materials, compounds and tread pattern. We all know roads are not always perfect like race tracks, we have to face unexpected wet patches, debris, temperature drops or uneven tarmac. For these uncontrollable variables, Metzeler has introduced a new concept of water drainage and contact feeling thanks to dual-compound on the rear tire combined with Interact technology and high silica compounds. Tread Pattern Design The longitudinal grooves are interrupted by compound bridges to increase the thrust in acceleration, enhance stability of tread compound and improve wear regularity. These bridges also keep the grove wide open when in contact with the tarmac, ensuring water evacuation. In the lateral groves, depth decreases gradually towards shoulder area to increase compactness and lateral thrust when turning at maximum lean angle on dry tarmac their width on the other hand, increases towards shoulder area to guarantee efficient water evacuation at higher lean angle. Compound For the Sportec M7RR, Metzeler has develop a compound capable of generating chemical and mechanical grip. The development target was to extend the sporty behavior from the perfect or ideal conditions of dry warm temperature and regular asphalt to those sudden and unpredictable situations that we all actually encounter when riding on normal roads: wet spots, leaves, temperature drops, debris, holes, etc. Therefore Metzeler developed a totally new family of compounds with high to full Silica (SiO2). The rear tire is Dual-Compound with a 40-20-40 layout. The shoulder strip has a 100 silica content that provide chemical grip on both dry and wet surfaces, supported by a harder compound in the substrate that grants the highest levels of stability and steering precision when cornering. This same base compound exists in the central portion of the tread which covers approximately 45mm in width (with slight difference between sizes) and assures an elevated mileage capability. Profile The main function of the profile is to influence the handling behavior of the tire. The profile of SPORTEC M7 RR Tires are directly derived from those used in the Road Racing activity by Guy Martin and other road racers. This profile provides an immediate dive into a lean from the upright position and agile handling for quick direction change.The shoulder portion is flatter, providing a 5 larger footprint which provides better grip and trajectory precision when leaning. Sidewall height is also increased by 3mm, providing more torsional-flexibility that increases the tire traction in accelerations and out of the turns. Features: Sporty Handling: the combination of profiles derived from the Road Racing activities with high stiffness structures delivers an extremely agile handling for a sporty riding style on all roads Grip in all Conditions: 100 Silica compounds combined with a special tread pattern gives the SPORTEC M7 RR the unique capability to keep the sporty riding style in cold weather, wet roads and greasy and grimy tarmac surfaces Extended Mileage: 20 more mileage compared to the SPORTEC M5 Interact and dual compound construction on rear sizes allows the use of a specific material on the central slick portion of the tread pattern to increase abrasion resistance and extend the mileage capability

Bought these because my M5's were shot after 2 patch jobs from my commute. I ride 120 miles a day, 5 times a week, all year round. Mostly commute but some canyons here and there. So far with these have only been used commuting for the past 3 months from Vacaville,Ca to San Francisco, Ca. They inspire confidence, excitement, and help me focus more on looking for idiot cagers. They look awesome on the R6 too! Even with this year's El Nino rain storms, I feel grip, confident, and safe. I have tried Bridgestones, Michellins, but always seem to come back to metzelers due to the best wet traction. These will not let you down. Rode threw traffic, pouring rain, storm flooded drains, and still felt like I had the ludicrous button on.

I only gave a 4 star because the only color you can get is smoke. Cheaper than getting it from Arai themselves though. Easy to replace. Thanks Revzilla!!

 REV'IT! CR Textile Jacket
REV'IT! CR Textile Jacket
For the light motorcycle or vintage guzzi or even the scooter rider, the retro-style CR jacket is an excellent choice. The matte finish of the jacket looks good on the bike and off, thanks to a light coating on the outside of the material. The textile CR's mesh lining is very comfortable, even over bare arms, making this a jacket you won't want to take off. PROTECTION FEATURES Outer shell PWRshell polycotton, Lorica Insulation detachable thermal bodywarmer Protection Knox CE protection, EVA foam ERGONOMIC FEATURES Fit city fit, regular shape Adjustability adjustment tabs Features jeans loop, double front zipper Pockets slit pockets, inner pockets

5'4" 149 lbs skinny, size purchased 46.Purchased this jacket for everyday Spring and Summer riding, and I liked the retro look.I love how I don't feel like a power ranger wearing this jacket.Around town with jeans is great and through the twisties with pants is fun.Compared to my Dainese suit you can't really tell the difference in leather.Purchased the knox back insert for better protection.Plus it takes up some of the extra space so I don't feel like it's baggy at all.I get a whole lot of compliments while wearing this jacket.My only qualms is that since I am short that the sleeves are a bit too long. Other than that I love this jacket.Definitely would recommend this to everyone!

I puchased this Jacket from another website unfortunately.I can honestly say the best jacket I have ever owned.Had to sell due to economy and school prices(I regret that decision).Fitted like a second skin,felt secure and protected. Hump was not ideal for wearing a back pack for school,but for riding the twisties you are in luck.In 90+ heat sitting still was murder as with any black leather jacket, moving showed off how the bubble liner worked.The jacket can be comfortable down to a balmy 40 degrees.Protection and leather on this jacket is top notch as with any Dainese product.I own a Laguna Seca one piece.The titanium shoulder protectors were comfortable and a nice finish.The neckbrace was really comfortable and functional.The only con is the price being almost the same for my suit.I received nothing but compliments on this jacket.Definitely would recommend this jacket if you have the cash.
Pros Fashionable, Great Value
Yes, I recommend this product.
