For added protection from the elements, it also includes four zippered waterproof pockets and an oversized zippered waterproof back storage pocket. This jacket also offers a Womens specific fit and flattering hourglass shape. Layer Two - For maximum comfort during cold weather rides this jacket is also equipped with a stylish, sturdy wind and water resistant breathable stretch nylon soft shell liner with Thermolite insulation, mandarin style knit trim collar, two zipper pockets and oversized interior stash pocket. AVS Venting System - For warm weather riding, Olympias women's Ranger jacket offers their exclusive AVS shoulder to forearm and torso venting system.

I bought this for the rainy weather here in Seattle. The inner liner that is a separate jacket is really ingenious. It adds that extra layer of warmth across my chest. With the liner out, the jacket is still fairly warm. I rode with it on a warm, sunny day (66 degrees). The jacket was stuck to my arms with sweat, so I recommend wearing a long sleeved t-shirt underneath. The fit is good except for the collar. It is either way too tall or I have an extremely short neck. I need to keep it open to fasten my helmet. The outside pockets are nice with waterproof zippers and snaps. I haven't tried the built-in rain hood, yet.
Sizing - I bought an XL. I have a 42 inch chest, 38 inch waist, and 50 inch hips. The zippers on the side gave me the right amount of hip room. It fits perfectly around my chest and waist.

I got this exhaust as a Christmas present. It took about an hour to remove the old exhaust and install this one. The only equipment needed to install were wrenches and hex keys. The sound is subdued at idle, so those who want a louder exhaust will want to remove the baffle. It sounds great when accelerating. According to specs, the horsepower increase is not that much, but I cam really feel the difference. It also knocks about 4 pounds off the weight of the bike.
There are cheaper exhausts out there, but I know people who had installation problems. The Leo Vince fit perfectly right out of the box with no modifications.

I ordered a size 7 (40) which I wear in the Tour Master Response boots. My toes hit the end of the boot, so I exchanged for an 8 (41). After my first ride, I took off the boots and saw the top fabric eyelet at ankle height ripped completely off. So, my right boot can no longer be laced to the top of my ankle. The left boot has held up so far. So, durability is only fair. The rest of the boot seems well constructed. I ride a naked bike and the boot is thin enough to not interfere with shifting, It also gives me enough height to flat-foot my bike. The soles seem pretty grippy and they don't protrude the way soles do on many cruiser type boots. They are also comfortable enough to wear walking around without any break-in period.
Overall, I recommend these even though you may need a trip to the cobbler for new eyelets.

This jacket is very warm as the waterproof liner holds the heat in. I was too hot with the temp in the mid sixties, but it should be good for fall when the temperature drops. I'm in Seattle and I sweat when it hits 75 degrees, so you may not be too warm. It also runs large. Order a size down. There are dual zippers, one for the lining and one for the jacket. It takes me a while to get it zipped up properly.

I finally got sick of riding with my shield partially open and freezing my face off. The Pinlock system works as advertised, now I just have to deal with my glasses fogging up. Time for contacts?

Plush comfort in a light & cool helmet

I normally wear a small but I needed the medium in this helmet. My sister has a small peanut head and the medium fit her fine. The liner is super plush and comfortable, very soft on your head. The strap is a ratchet type with a quick release. I can get it on and off with gloves, that is an impossible task with D rings. I wear glasses and I can put the helmet on and take it off without having to remove my glasses. The visor is 60% tinted. A darker visor is needed for bright sunny days, or you can just wear sunglasses. This helmet looks cool and I get loads of complements. It is also cool to wear.
Pros Great Value, Fashionable, Comfortable
