MachineartMoto MudSling Standard Rear Fender R1200R The MudSling stylishly protects the shock and battery area from flying mud, rocks, and tar, keeps the underseat area cleaner and reduces splash-out to the sides. MudSling installs without having to remove the stock spring cover or the rear wheel and looks beautifully integrated with the design of the R. Fits standard suspension models and fastens to the frame beneath the tool tray with the included two T25 Torx screws utilizing existing mounting locations, and with zip ties to the frame side rails. High impact ABS plastic is .125 thick with a lightly textured satin finish surface.

Of course, great service form Revzilla as usual.
The Moto Mudsling was easy to install and I was impressed by the excellent finish and quality of the product. Now, I know that the R1200R is not one of the most popular models for BMW, but I feel the price for a molded piece of plastic was excessive. I guess Machineart Moto don't sell enough to justify a lower price based on quantity. I shopped high and low for a similar product at a cheaper (sub $100) price, but could find none. Apparently Machineart Moto has cornered the market on this product. There are products out there that serve the same function, but are considerably more expensive.
The Mudsling will save hours of time in trying to keep the spray and road slime out of the shock / battery compartment areas under the seat. So, I held my breath and bought the product.
Over time, I will forget about the cost, just like Disney World.

The Abus lock seems like a very good quality lock, but of course time will tell. The finish is good. I like the compact size of this lock, and the included travel bag which will make this very easy to bring along on trips. Also, I do like the way the lock alarm is activated, by pushing the lever / battery compartment after the lock is clipped to the disc. This makes it virtually impossible to set off the alarm while installing the lock. I gave this lock a "good" rating on the Bang for the Buck because although it is one of the more pricy locks available, it is a cut-above the average lock in terms of features and convenience.

Here are a few negatives of these pants after 5000+ miles...
Air Vent zippers catch on the underlying fabric when trying to zip/unzip.
Snap and velcro front closures will snag and ruin your expensive dry-fit synthetic shirt fronts.
HIp pads do not lay flat after extended wear time. They tend to "ball up" in their internal pockets after extended wear.
On the good side.... they vent well, are very comfortable, wear well, have a bunch of features for the price and are fairly comfortable in temperature up to 80 degrees and then you tend to swelter in them.
Yes, I recommend this product.

The Givi D332ST is a good windscreen. It has an excellent finish and fit. Mine came with a few very minor hairline scratches that were almost unnoticeable. After a season of riding they will be imperceptible. I purchased the screen for an upcoming tour based upon various product descriptions that said it reduced head buffeting due to curvature on the top edge. It does, at bit, but it is not significantly better than the double-bubble windscreen it replaced. Oh well, now I have an extra windscreen! I should also mention that I brought the scratches to the attention of Revzilla, did NOT ask for a replacement, just wanted them and Givi to know about it. Patrick credited my account $20!! Nicely unexpected... That's why Revzilla is the BEST!
Yes, I recommend this product.

.... but we have just purchased the Cortech Tri-bag system and have not used it extensively as yet. It does appear to have excellent workmanship and is as-advertised as best I can see. I did fit it to my wife's V Star and it mounts quickly and securely to the bike and the saddle bags.

... but the quality and workmanship of the Cortech Sport Tri Bag Saddlebag "system" looks quite good. I did fit them to my wife's Yamaha V-Star with no problem what-so-ever. They adjusted well to the mounting points and seemed very secure. The bags were as advertised.

I am not sure whose hand Held used when they came up with a pattern for these gloves. Yes, they fit fairly true to size except for my index finger! E.T. perhaps? I have never before in my long life owned a pair of gloves where there is an extra 1/2 inch of glove on my first finger! All the other fingers fit perfectly.... However, the misfit of the first finger is not enough to return them. So, I will just wear them an hope that after a few stretch-shrink cycles they conform a bit better.
No, I do not recommend this product.

Have just finished installing these and test around the house and utilizing the Bluetooth and related functions work well. But, as a potential buyer, there is something you should consider. My wife and I have HJC Symax 2 Modular Helmets and it was very difficult to mount the units without interfering with the operation of the helmets hinged chin guard. I was not able to flush mount the unit to the helmet. Instead, I had to place a rubber plumbing washer between the unit and the helmet. The 3/16" gap created by the washer now allows the chin guard to pivot under the Sena unit. The mount to the helmet is still very secure and does not seem to generate excessive wind noise. But, buyers should fully consider whether the unit will mount effectively if your helmet, especially if you wear a modular style helmet.
Pros Great Value, Comfortable
Yes, I recommend this product.

I purchased this helmet on clearance and it was a GREAT value. This helmet has many very nice features and appears very well with a good finish detail. The moving features of the helmet (external visor, chin guard, and internal sun shield) click into their respective places quite nicely and securely. The helmet was a bit snug at first, but given a few hours of wear the padding adjusted well and seemed to just fall into the right places comfortably. I liked it so well I purchased an identical helmet for my wife who also enjoys the fit and features One fitting note, if your head size is right on the break-point between chart sizes go with the larger size. I went with the smaller helmet originally and had to exchange for the larger, which RevZilla made easy!
Pros Great Value, Comfortable, Fashionable
Yes, I recommend this product.
