Dainese TRQ-Tour Gore-Tex Boots A TeamZilla favorite, the Dainese TRQ-Tour boots are perhaps the best option for commuting, or sport touring. Collectively, we have put thousands of miles as well as a few crashes on the Dainese TRQ line and they never fail to impress. Recommended as a 3-season cold-weather boot that stretches nicely into the warmer months with Gore-Tex breathability, the TRQ-Tour Boots are the kind of protection that you will forget to take off! The axial hinge provides excellent protection, while allowing for comfortable movement as you walk. In addition, the rear entry zipper allows for easy entry/exit to the boot. D-Axial jointed anti-ankle twist back system in TPU Nylon toe TPU rear shinguards TPU heelcounter Nylon heel Cowhide leather D-Stone fabric Elasticated bellows Elasticated inserts Internal regulation with Velcro Closing with zipper at the back Waterproof / Breathable Gore-Tex membrane High grip TPU inserts Padded insert for gear shifter guard Reflective inserts Non-slip sole Italian patent pending Microelastic elasticated inserts(PCT Patent Pending)

Have had this boot for a couple of weeks and it's a great boot.
When I first got it I was afraid that it was to snug and was going to send it back. I have had other Dainese boots in 43 and they fit great so I was hesitant to send them back and get a 44. I called and talked to one of the guys and they suggested that I could take out the insert in the boot and it would give me a little extra room. That did the trick and they fit great and were still comfortable even without the insert. I'm thinking once I break them in a bit more I may be able to put the insert back in.
Either way I am very pleased with them. They look great and aren't over the top.

Arai RX-Q Helmet - Solid Colors The Arai RX-Q Helmet is a top end street oriented version of the race bred Corsair V with similar features, but built for everyday use. Expect the Arai RX-Q to stand at the top of the heap for upright, 3/4 and spirited riding applications on road and in dualsport environments. Designed for the street without giving up the benefits of a racing helmet. 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). Weight 1597 grams (3 lbs. 8-1/4 oz) Meets or exceeds SNELL M2010 and DOT specifications NOTES The Pearl Black color listed for this product has a very subtle metallic flake whereas the Diamond Black color has a more pronounced metallic. Also, helmet does not ship with the Pinlock face shield as shown. Pinlock face shield available as an accessory.

I was looking for another helmet to get custom painted and thought I would try something different.
I have a Corsair V which is awesome but wanted to try a different brand. I got the Shoei X-12 but wasn't crazy about the fit. Not knocking that helmet as the quality seemed awesome. I think my head is just more of an Arai shape. I sent back the Shoei and got the RXQ. I put it on....Ahhhhh, much better and typical Arai quality.
I think I will stick with Arai from here on out. I would recommend this helmet to anyone.

Airhawk R Seat Pad The last mile feels like the first, thanks to AIRHAWK's exclusive Shape Fitting Technology. This patented system eliminates painful points and promotes consistent blood flow for a longer, more comfortable ride. Memory foam can't do it. Gel seat can't do it. Only a genuine Airhawk R Seat cushion can do it. The neoprene AIRHAWK's stretchy material has a much more substantial and luxurious feel, especially at the end of a long day in the saddle. Features Center cutout area runs from front to back of cushion Re-designed cell geometry improves airflow under the rider no hot seat Back cutaway allows for a tail bone relief area with a tapered transition for increased comfort Cushion comes standard with cover, attachment loops, and cruiser straps. Cushion Material Neoprene rubber Cover Material Stretch polyester material top cover. Side panels are 3-layer knit polyester providing air circulation. Fluid-proof, non-skid base is easy to clean and durable. Dimensions 15.25 Wide x 14 Deep x 2 Tall (39.5 cm x 35.5 cm x 5 cm) 3 year limited warranty

I ordered this a couple of days before taking a 1200 mile trip.
Revzillas usual fast shipping got it to me the day before I left on my trip.
I would say over all I am very pleased with it. Somewhere on one of the reviews I read a person said "the last mile felt just like the first mile" While I wouldn't go that far it did definitely help a great deal.
The last trip I took without it I would find myself a couple of hundred miles in to the trip moving around trying to get comfortable and even raising up in my seat for a few seconds to give my rear end a break. With the airhawk I didnt feel the need to raise up at all and just made the trip overall more comfortable. You have to make sure you don't over inflate it though. It takes a little bit to find out where you need it to be.
To me the price is a bit steep but overall its worth it.

I got these pants to wear under some kevlar jeans just to give me some impact protection. They seem like they will do a decent job and give me just a little more protection.
Nice pants, not hard core but nice for the price and comfortable.

I had been eyeballing this helmet for quite some time trying decide if I was going to pull the trigger on such a pricey lid.
I finally decided to go for it. Ordered it on a monday, got it on wed, and left on a 1300 mile trip on thur. I can honestly say it's a great helmet. The build quality is great, it's comfortable the sun visor works great. I got caught in about 4 hours of pretty hard rain and the screen didn't fog up and the helmet didn't leak. I'm just really pleased with this purchase. I would say it's a pretty quiet helmet. I ride a Multistrada 1200 which are known to have some wind noise anyway and the helmet helped with that some. I did still wear ear plugs on such a long trip. If it's in your budget this is a fantastic helmet.
Can't wait to take another trip in it.

I haven't had a chance to wear these a lot but they are very nice and seem well made.
I feel like they will offer nice added protection for track days and they also fit discreetly under a pair of jeans.
I like the mesh as they allow good air flow.
I'm happy with my purchase.

I was looking for a pair of pants that would give me more protection then a pair of jeans or dress pants that I could wear to work and didn't shout "biker"
These pants are great. The protection isn't all that high but they definitely feel like good sturdy pants and while the hip and knee armor is soft it seems like it would do a good job in impact protection.
I would say this is a nice pair of pants for commuting.
A step above regular pants, a step or two below more aggressive riding pants.
You could wear these and 99% of people would never know you are wearing protective pants.
If you are looking for some low key protection these are a great choice.

I bought this helmet for my daughter who rides two up with me from time to time but does not ride herself.
She is very pleased with it and says the comfort and fit is good.
It is a nice quality helmet. I can't speak for the air flow etc because I can't cram a small onto my head and wouldn't wear a purple helmet anyway.
I will say I feel like I picked a good quality helmet for her and I am pleased with this helmet and would recommend it.

Arai Vector 2 Helmet - Solid The Arai Vector 2 Helmet is the successor to Arai's hugely popular Vector model. New features for the Vector 2 Helmet include an SAI visor similar to RX-Q and Corsair V which provides wider field of vision. A replaceable interior liner has been modified to improve air flow around the head and to provide a more comfortable fit eliminating pressure points. The ventilation system has been revamped with a larger size switch and larger rear duct which will create 50 more vacuum.. Solid Colors Frost indicates a Matte finish Diamond refers to a metallic finish with metal flake Complex Laminate Construction (CLC) shell that combines excellent shell integrity with light weight Arai's exclusive multi-density, single piece hybrid EPS liner Arai's multi-density EPS liner is like no other, comprised of up to 5 different densities in some models which is molded into a single piece The single-piece hybrid liner and its unique benefit the direct-fused contact area that each EPS call shares with its neighboring cells creates a mutual support - as one cell is crushed under impact, the surrounding cells assist with the energy absorption. (Liner pieces that are simply fitted or glued together cannot rely on such a high-level support bond.) New ACF-2 front intake vent has an oversized intake opening for better airflow, and a sliding-door mechanism to more completely close it Brow Vent Faceshield Ventilation System provides cooling air in upper face area without holes in critical forehead area of the shell or in the impact-absorbing liner material Exclusive removable 5 mm Peel - away Cheek and Temple Pad layer-provides additional level of customization and fitment Extreme peripheral view - same wider field of side to side visibility as the top-of-the-line Corsair V racing helmet (an additional 5mm on each side when compared to to previous Vector model) New tuned rear vent/wing - Air inlets provide improved interior ventilation and heat removal Hyper-Ridge band - newly sculpted lower reinforcement band provides stability and lower center of gravity for a lightweight feeling. Larger side exhaust ports to increase airflow and minimize noise Dual pivot chin vent to direct air to the rider or the shield for de-misting Reinforced shell ridges with integrated side exhaust vents Larger bottom opening for easier on and off Removable/replaceable cheek pads with 5mm peel-away layer Micro-fitting 5mm peel away cheek pad layer first introduced on the RX-Q comes standard on the Vector 2. Gives you the option of a thinner cheek pad set for a custom fit without having to purchase additional cheek pads Expanding on the 5mm peel-away cheek pads, the Arai Vector 2 is the first Arai model to offer 5mm peel away temple pads as well Interior Shape Intermediate Oval - This shape is designed for the rider whose head has a front-to-back dimension that is longer than the side-to-side dimension. This is a neutral head-shape design which tends to fit most riders well. Meets or exceeds Snell M2010 and D.O.T. standards

I got this helmet after a good bit of research and couldn't be happier with it. You can feel the quality of the helmet and know you are wearing a good lid when you put this on.
I got the frost black and it looks awesome with the dark shield.
I also have an Arai Corsair V but didn't want to spend that much on a second helmet.
The Vector 2 did not disappoint.
Yes, I recommend this product.
