I was tired of spending $400 on helmets and decided to try something new so I got this HJC. It fits great and has excellent ventilation. It's a bit noisier than I'd like it to be, which is the only reason I didn't give it a higher rating. I have not tried the pin lock anti-fog yet, but no other helmets at this price are offering that feature. Don't let the low price fool you, this helmet is very nice.

Shogun Front Axle Sliders Kawasaki ZX-6R / ZX-10R / ZX-14R The makers of Shogun frame sliders up the ante with Shogun axle sliders. Shogun axle sliders are manufactured to the same precision and quality control standards as Shogun frame sliders. Axle sliders help protect expensive suspension components in the event of a crash and may significantly reduce the cost of repair. Each slider is made of the same proprietary plastics blend as Shogun frame sliders. Each UV resistant puck is shaped to accommodate a spool lift stand, in addition to other types of stands. Several Shogun Axle slider kits like Honda, Kawasaki, Suzuki and Yamaha units come with a CNC machined stainless steel axle nut. Some other manufacturers of axle sliders do not let the rider know that there is a lot of unnecessary effort involved in the installation of their kits. No need to drill through your stock axle nut Shogun provides one for you that is the same grade or better than OEM. Rod component is machined, not an all-thread piece. A machined rod has fewer stress risers than all thread and therefore greater structural integrity during a crash. Well written instructions with color photos make installing each unit fast and easy, with minimal modification necessary to your motorcycle. Sold as a pair.

I got these to match some frame sliders from Shogun. The hardware supplied seems a little cheap, and gives me little faith in their ability to handle a hard fall.

Shogun Frame Sliders Kawasaki ZX10R 2008-2010 Shogun sliders are superior to other slider brands by virtue of their construction and material--shatter-proof UHMW infused with UV protective polymer. Shogun sliders absorb kinetic energy from crashes and will not shatter in cold temperature like some types of Delrin or fade in the sun. Each slider has a press fit aluminum bushing (excluding bar ends) to hold it in place during impact to reduce the risk of the slider puck or spool tearing off of the mounting point. Shogun frame slider offsets are CNC machined from the same grade aluminum as military aircraft. Offsets are anodized black to match OEM components. Each offset is manufactured to stringent specifications with ISO 9000 quality control. Each Shogun Frame Slider comes with high tensile strength corrosion resistant hardware (cheap imitators do not use high grade hardware and will quickly rust). Shogun uses socket head bolts in nearly every kit, allowing for stronger frame slider design in a more compact space. Newer applications of Shogun Frame Sliders make use of a counter sunk design, which distributes the force of impact over a wider area and gives additional strength to the system so that the puck remains attached to the motorcycle. Designed by racers, sold by racers, for the serious rider! Sold as a pair Note Carbon S5 Frame Sliders include a black anodized T-6061 aluminum end cap.

These sliders were recommended to me by a parts guy at a shop, and I'm not sure why. I spent $14,000 on my bike and laugh at the thought that these $90 pucks will offer much protection in a crash. Shogun even puts a disclaimer in their sub par directions stating that their product may or may not perform, depending on circumstances. The big misconception about frame sliders is that they will keep your fairing from getting damaged. Fact is, they are Frame Sliders and may only protect your frame in a fall. Beyond that, for my ZX-10r application, I had to cut a hole in my fairing, which was hard.

I got these to go under some Kevlar lined jeans for extra protection. The size large fits me well at 5 ft 10, 180 pounds. It took a few rides to get used to the feeling of wearing " tights", but they are fairly comfortable overall and seem like they will provide some protection in a fall. The only thing I see that could be improved upon would be a zippered or Velcro fly to add function.

I got this jacket just before a 600 mile ride to wear over my mesh jacket for the 50 degree, cold and damp Northern California coast, and easy storage for when we cut inland and the temperatures reached 90+ degrees. By having this one piece of gear to wear over my mesh jacket, I was far more comfortable than the other riders who had only brought a single heavier jacket. They were envious.
Yes, I recommend this product.

This is definitely not the most hardcore bag as far as construction and materials, but it fits my BMW back seat very nicely and has a lot of zippered compartments to keep things organized. I can easily pack 5 days worth of clothing in it, and because of it's design, strap a sleeping bag or other equipment to the top of it. If it were waterproof I could have given it a better rating, but other than that I am very satisfied with this product.

Although this boot is more like a modified high top sneaker, it offers pretty good protection. It is just tall enough to cover the ankle without rubbing the calf , and sturdy enough to feel safe. It breathes very well, and is comfortable enough to wear most of the day. I have had a lot of trouble finding boots that fit my slightly wide feet, and these are perfect. I have bought genuine Sidi products before and loved them, and although this is a Sidi design but not actually made by Sidi, the manufacturer did a great job of sticking to the quality standards that the brand represents. For $100 casual riding "shoe" , I am impressed.
Yes, I recommend this product.
