Holy Shizz! This thing is huge. I knew it was a 60 liter bag, but WOW. At least I'll keep all my ALL my camping gear and then some dry. Looks very well built and robust like all other SW-Motech gear. Looking forward to getting in the wind with this one.

Akrapovic Exhaust Header BMW R1200GS / Adventure Akrapovic Header Pipes are a great addition to your Akrapovic Slip-On Exhaust. Contributing to even greater exhaust flow and back pressure while increasing horse and torque. A special process known as hydroforming is used in the manufacturing of the exhaust tubes. This process injects pressurized water into each tube to form the ideal shape for optimum exhaust flow without causing creases or compromising the strength of the steel. Its not just about peak power - Akrapovic exhaust systems deliver increased performance throughout the entire RPM range. Increases in power and torque result in a much smoother power delivery and ride. All Akrapovic exhaust system measurements are formulated on in-house computer-controlled flow benches. Note Please check local laws before purchasing. Some modifications may be prohibited in some states.

I installed these headers because I put a massive dent in the stock ones and to replace it was $1,777.98 from BMW. So...I might as well get the headers to go with the Akrapovic slip-on, make sense to me. After installing these myself (following the instructions to the letter) now I'm getting a yellow triangle on the dash and an engine light! I checked the code with my GS-911 and it's due to the exhaust valve being unplugged. I can clear the codes (21FA20, 21F500, 21F502) but it immediately returns. However the instruction says to remove the servo and zip tie the wires to the starter. Just for testing I plugged the servo back and bam the code goes away. I did some digging and all over full Akrapovic exhaust system do not get this error and also have the exhaust valve servo removed. I think the dealership has to do something with the ECU. Other than that I love the new headers, nice sound. Plus it shoots blue flames when quick shifting and back firing!

What can I say... These boots do what they are made for very well. They are comfy, waterproof boots that you'll forget your wearing. They are a little narrow but nothing uncomfortable and in a few minutes you forget all about it. Flexs well for shifting and walk around in. Good job Tour Master.

Works and fits just as advertised. Use it in durning a 130 mile ride which 90% of it was it drizzle to down pouring Florida rain. Put this on over my Dainese mesh jacket. Kept me dry and comfortable warm from the wet wind. Does get a bit too warm during stops. It's seems to be missing it day-glow fluorescents, but it's still better than nothing as far safety color goes.

 Arai RX-Q Spencer Helmet

The graphics on this helmet are inspired by famous racer Fast Freddie Spencer (pictured) Completely new helmet based on Corsair V shell Same wider eyeport opening as Corsair V Same face shield as the Corsair V Intermediate Oval Fit (same head shape as Quantum 2) Slightly different feel due to new cheek pads. New cheek pads come down further and cradle the head better. Made of a different density material which results in an extremely comfortable and quiet helmet Advanced ventilation Smaller, More Aerodynamic shell shape Hyper-Ridge circles lower shell to improve strength and aerodynamics Retractable chin spoiler Emergency Cheek Pad Removal system along with removable neck roll One piece bottom edge trim Race helmet for the street 5 unique size shells (XS, S, M/L, XL, XXL).

Got the RWB Fast Freddy helmet. I love the style of this helmet a lot with my RWB VFR800. The fit and airflow is incredible here in FL you can really fit the vent working soon as you start going... Really spoils you. Well worth the money. Now my wife wants an Arai.

I love A-Star glove all my other glove are A-stars but these pair.... Meh. They fit is really small, normally wear a large in others (XXL in A-stars). I got a XXL and they still fit a bit small. The heating is okay but my god you give up ALL dexterity. Yeah, I'm disappointed just happy the week long Florida winter is over.
