Install took a few minutes to measure, check, remeasure and drill the 4 holes, then 2 minutes to bolt on the pad.
Pad looks to be able to withstand the elements pretty well. My son did a quick sit and test on it so far and he likes it which is all I needed it for anyway - LOL.

Bought the 3-piece set, including the Trekker (E120) Rack for the Top Box.
This set is really well packaged. Quality looks and feel great. Simplicity is an understatement where it came to install these, I had the rack mounted, all 3 boxes attached, Rack and back pad mounted all in under 30 minutes, including reading the pretty detailed but completely necessary instruction sheets.
Have not carried anything heavy in the boxes yet but they feel like they will do the job nicely. The Top Box also will make a great pillion back rest as I did add the padded piece to the box along with the rack to strap even more cargo onto.
RevZilla has these are a great price and actually did match another sites price (I MUCH prefer to buy from RevZilla, even if I did have to pay a few bucks more - but don't tell them that - LOL).
Shipping for all the pieces took only a few business days from ordering and everything was packed nice and secure, I have a growing pile of RevZilla boxes in my Garage!

This bag makes a nice addition to the Trekker boxes.
Material and construction quality looks topnotch. Have not used it to carry anything of substance yet but will report back if I have any issues.

The simplicity of this mount is terrific! I literally had this installed in less than 5 minutes. Have had it mounted now for a few weeks but have not really carried much weight on the yet. They look pretty durable and are mounted pretty tightly to the bike.
Only issue I see that time will tell if it is an issue is the side-2-side cross support goes directly in front of my exhaust outlet, so exhaust is directed directly onto the bar.
Otherwise, great product.

Bought this for my new RX-Q. The anti-fog works well, still get a good amount of fogging around perimeter of lens. Installs easily, vents ok.
My big complaint about this lens is the visual clarity. Looking thru this lens is disappointing at best. Produces a good amount of light glare from oncoming headlights and the visual trueness is not very good. Comparing this to my Nolan N-102 Pin lock and the Arai lens is sub-par, the Nolan is nearly invisible where the Arai is like looking thru a fish bowl.
The anti-fog function works, but visual clarity is not there.

Have these in a size 46. I generally need a wide boot and these fit me very well, with a heavy sock in winter obviously a bit snug but not uncomfortable.
These have not leaked in wet weather and have been great year round though for me they could be a bit warmer in winter so I wouldn't need the thinker socks.
After about 10,000 miles in these boots they are still in really good shape. A bit of sole wear and the side strips that cover the zipper are getting a bit worn, otherwise still got alot of life left.
