Klim Mojave OTB Pants Klim's Mojave Over The Boot Pant is the fully ventilated brother to the ultra-versatile Dakar Pant. Built on the same updated, articulate and refined chassis as the new Dakar pant, the Mojave Pant incorporates maximum mesh materials to keep you cool as the temperatures climb. Combining durability and mesh ventilation is done by the liberal use of Cordura materials in the highest wear areas and the most durable mesh materials in the world everywhere else. The Mojave Pant also gets the updated thicker and more water resistant leather inner knees. If you are looking for hot-day comfort and lightweight durability in an over-the-boot pant, the Mojave Pant is the ultimate off-road choice. Features Durable, fully ventilated over-the-boot off-road motorcycle pant Durable, highly breathable mesh materials Heavy-duty 840 Cordura in knee, seat, bottom leg panels Durable and strong AE heavy-duty nylon thread seam construction Thicker, highly abrasion- and melt-resistant leather on legs for maximum durability and resistance to heat from the exhaust and engine Improved DWR treatment on leather to resist water and mud Engineered stretch material in flex zones above seat, above knee, groin, and upper side hip Adjustable cuffs with VELCRO brand closures closures fit a wide range of boots/braces/guards Two YKK-zippered thigh cargo pockets with storm flap 3M Scotchlite reflective material trim Adjustable waist VELCRO brand closures cinch straps Glove friendly zipper pulls Articulated leg YKK fly zipper entry with storm flap and 2 snaps Gripper elastic waist High back yoke Hip and knee pad pockets (pads sold separately) Technical hanging liner construction featuring stretch panels matching exterior shell stretch zones, durable nylon taffeta around lower leg, highly abrasion resistant 840 Cordura lining inner knee and around lower cuff

I like the quality & durability of KLIM products but have found the shape & sizing a bit difficult to work around in the past. (Odd waist:hip sizing) This new combination of shape and stretch material placement makes for the best fitting pants I've worn in years. I saw lady friends of all sizes wearing these and loving the fit and airflow, so I got a pair. Happy day!
I'm 5'10, 145 & wear size 8, and bought the 30 tall. I typically need a bare minimum 34" inseam to cover 12" boots and these don't quite get there in length, but aren't like some "talls" that are a whopping 31". (My pet peeve on women's motorcycle pants.) No gap with off-road boots, and I don't look like I'm wearing capris or in-the-boot pants on the outside!
There is ample room for the D3O hip and knee armor I inserted, and the pocket placement works perfectly for me. The rise is not too long in front and has extra height in the back for good coverage in the riding position. The inner thigh area is well vented with external pockets on the side that don't block airflow to your lap.
The pockets fit my Note 2 phone in a zip lock bag with an inch to spare. The adjustable leg openings make it easy to deal with boots & knee guards for dual sport use. They did their research for these pants!
The downside? No Zilla cash on KLIM purchases!

Michelin Pilot Road 3 Rear Tires Building on the tremendous reputation Michelin has built over the years, the Michelin Pilot Road 3 Tire is the successor to the award winning Pilot Road 2. With the Michelin Pilot Road 3 Motorcycle Tire you are really getting 2 tires in 1, by integrating a soft rubber compound on the tread shoulders with a wear-resistant compound down the middle, Michelin gives you the best of both worlds. The Pilot Road 3 is a dual compound sport-touring radial tire. Revolutionary X-Sipes technology maximizes wet traction Michelins newest technology delivers all-weather performance without compromising tread life or handling Patented innovation resulting from years of research and development Sipes increase the tread's drainage capacity Sipes generate pressure at the edges of the sipe blade, which helps to break through water film Two compound technology combines tread life and cornering grip 2CT incorporated into all tire sizes, front and rear Wider soft-compound shoulders on the front tire, compared to its predecessor High performance and environmentally sound 100 non-aromatic-oil rubber compound Note Sizes denoted by B are designed specifically for loaded sport touring bikes, or for riding two-up.

I've used the PR3s for a couple years on my DL1000, getting 10K miles on the rear. I switched to the 4s and there was a 1500 mile break-in period till they felt like the 3's. After that, no difference, so I'm going to go back and get the full use out of each tire by switching to the 3.

I thought long and hard before buying this tent. It's big and 13 pounds, and the footprint is large. But then it rained at a rally I was attending, and as I walked around I saw the happy folks enjoying the sights & cooking in their vestibules & under their awnings. I bought it and haven't looked back.
Would I carry this on my DRZ? no. But when I haul my DL1000 on a tour, especially to a rally, this is the tent to have. There is so much room to live in, as well as sleep in.
Watch the videos if you think it's hard to pitch...it goes up quicker than my Ajax 2.

I like these because they're functional, but mostly because they're the only pants on the market with a 35" length. You can adjust them to 33" or 31", and they have a waterproof liner. The details make that a little unclear by calling them waterproof...the pants aren't but the zip out liner is.
I dinged them on comfort because they're cut for males as other reviewers have noted. When sitting, the front rides up and pulls in while the back gaps. If they changed that around, I'd give it a 5.

My fingers are too long for ladies gloves, so I buy M in mens -the body of the glove is a bit large, but much less so in this winter glove than any of the others I tried. My fingers & thumb fit, which otherwise I wouldn't be able to get my hand around the controls without strain & fatigue.
The glove itself is well made-you can tell they took time for the details. It looks safe & sturdy, and I can't pull it off when I use the velcro wrist wrap. I wouldn't use this in an extreme cold weather situation because air does come through a bit, but for the most rides, it keeps my hands protected and toasty. If it's above 65, I can't wear them, so during the change in seasons, I bring 2 sets of gloves with me.
It's a safe buy, good price, and a well made product that fits true to size.

I don't know what this is made of, but I use it on everything. Just spray and wipe. I even used it on my car's front lower bumper and it's easier to get the road tar off with just a spray.
I clean my visors and shields with a microfiber towel and don't see any of those little scratches anymore-it's good stuff.

This is a quality pair of pants with great features and a wonderful airflow. I live in the southern mountain area, so our temps can vary quite a bit through the day, but it can get HOT. These pants keep me on the bike. I wear light jogging shorts under them & that works well to keep everything cool. The pockets are wonderful! I can keep my phone and wallet in the front, and they go down far enough on my thighs to not restrict air or movement.
I use these for the summer, and then switch to my Joe Rocket Alter Ego 3 season pants for the rest of the year.
They don't have a liner ( I use over-the-pants rain gear for that), so they don't have an inner zipper to mess with. I was able to get the 34x34 mens and have the waist made smaller so that I could get the length I need. If you need to have your pants altered, these are easy.
I've used them for one season, put about 8K miles on them and they're still fresh as a daisy. I highly recommend these pants.

I love this jacket! I use it in the heat & humidity of the Georgia summer, and it works. The large size mesh lets more air in than the small mesh of most gear, so even when I'm sitting at a light or on a short stop, I don't have to worry about overheating.
I've worn it for a couple years, and have washed it at least 6 times - it looks the same as it did when it was new. I have a medium, and I'm 5'10", 135 & busty, and it fits me perfectly.
The adjustable straps in the back really let you shape it to your waist & hips, with zippers at each hip to make further adjustments based on your sitting position. It's long enough to cover the goods when you're in a tuck, and doesn't ride up because of the side bottom zips.
It has the 8" connection zipper in the back, and a seam sealed waterproof/windproof liner that zips in & out easily. The 3 zippered pockets offer plenty of room.
If you're looking for a stylish, safe 3 season jacket, you'll like this one. For those with really hot summer riding seasons, I think you'll find the amount of airflow to be more than average. I'd buy it again.

This jacket certainly has the style points on it's side, and it's well made. They don't skimp on the embellishments or quality of fabric & workmanship. The armor is well placed & feels solid. I also have the matching pants, and the outfit looks great together! I was worried it might look like a silly costume when I wore them together, but it doesn't - it works & looks stylish & classy.
Sizing is a bit of an issue as most reviewers have stated. I'm 5'10/135/busty, and because of the feedback & reviews, I rightly bought a Large. I can wear a medium shirt and in Joe Rocket jackets, I wear a Medium. Even though it has the side adjustments, they really don't let you adjust as much as you need to if you're trying to alter the shape to make more than a bit of a waist. It's tight in the chest and flattens me out. I find it a tad short in the sleeve length, but unless I'm wearing a Speed & Strength jacket, that's always the case. It works enough to make me happy, and I'm very glad I bought it.
(Tall gals: Speed & Strength jackets are the longest around, and Joe Rocket pants are all 35" long to start and then have adjustments to make them shorter)
It has an inner wind/rain liner that has color coded snaps in the sleeves so you don't have to wonder if you've got it twisted down the arm. The mesh is good quality and the wind flow is very nice.
Overall, this is a good quality, safe and stylish motorcycle jacket that is clearly made from the ground up for women. I'd buy it again.

These pants are a bit small in the rear section, so I had to send a pair back and get an 8. After using them for a week, I ordered another pair - they're good.
I normally take a 35-36 length, so I had to let them out at the bottom hem, but there was plenty of room. The color is more of a blackwash on an faded ink blue--it's nice and doesn't look like a cheap jean at all.
The waist goes down in the front and rises in the back, so it makes it easy to use them on the bike all day long without cutting into your waist or looking like you're going to pop out of them in the back.
Overall: Actions speak louder than words: I bought another pair. I like them, they're high quality, well made, constructed with features a lady biker can use to keep safe & stylish., and a great price.
Yes, I recommend this product.
