Took delivery of these and tried them on... holy cra*...apparently its hammer time, because these things are WAT too baggy. I put the appropriate knee and hip pads and they sit so low in the knee area that I don't think they would do any good in a spill. Even if the pads did position over my knee, they certainly wouldn't stay put to protect since there's so much extra room in the legs.
I'm really not sure what these pants are good for, maybe for snowmobiling with several layers under these pants?
Anyway, I'll be returning these as soon as I have a chance. This is no reflection on Revzilla, but Klim isn't my thing based on this experience...
No, I do not recommend this product.

I was looking for a duffle bag that I could use on my trip to EU as a carry on. I was also looking for a solution that i could use after this trip on my GS. I already have the Wolfman soft bags, so i figured I would give this bag a try since it looks like it will fit very nicely mounted on top of the rear pillion seat.
I received the bag, and i can confirm that it fits very nicely across the back of the bike with the side bags mounted ((not so much without the side bags.) I really like the stowable built in bungy cords and the expansion capabilities and its very well made!
The one place where i feel they cut a corner was in not including a nice shoulder strap to carry your gear off the bike. I had to go out and purchase my own, but at least the bag has the d-rings on the bag to accept a shoulder strap!
All in all its arealy nice addition that will double as a carry on for my travels, so Im very happy with this purchase!
Yes, I recommend this product.

These are really nice tires, but you need to get through a couple hundred miles before you can really test them. When new they tend to "wander" a bit on the road, but that feeling calms down after a while and they pretty well planted.
Awesome on dirt, good on pavement. Best to keep the bike under 90MPH to keep things sane. I can already see some
Wear on the rear after 200 miles but thats just the sharp edges of the large knobs being sanded away. I expect to get vabout 3500 miles out of these with a 80/20 (road/dirt) terrain combo
Yes, I recommend this product.

Last week I took a few days off and a friend and I went down CA Hwy 1 from the SF Bay Area all the way down to Santa Barbara. This was the perfect test of the Aramas Jacket, as we experienced everything from crisp Fall sunshine to windy cold coastal rain storms.
As I've said before, the Rukka Aramas jacket is not a Summer weight jacket geared toward 75 degrees and up. Instead, I find this jacket to be the most kick butt 3 season jacket money can buy (no cheap).
It didn't matter if we were in dry, cold windy conditions or a driving hail storm. I was perfectly warm and comfortable in this jacket. I felt secure and well taken care of at all times. I must have muttered to myself no fewer than five times "you get what you pay for"!
I didn't feel the effects of wind or rain penetrate this jacket, and the fit was absolutely perfect. No excess fabric flapping in the wind as we cruised along at speeds up to 90+mph. I also appreciated the well placed chest and torso pockets for items I needed quick access to (like my wallet and camera), as I was also wearing a Kriega R20 Backpack which I did not want to take off to access such items.
About the only gripe I have with the Aramas Jacket is the armor. I might be in the minority here, but I really don't care for the open mesh rubber inserts at all. Especially in the elbow section. I find that when you bend your arm, you can feel the edges of the waffle pattern digging into your elbow. To remedy this, I replaced these inserts with a set of the stock inserts from my Dianese jackets, which made the jacket even more comfortable, and frankly seems to add more protection. I also replaced the Rukka back protector with a much more protective and less flexible Dianese back protector, which fit quite well in the provided pocket and made me feel a lot better about protecting my spine.
Baring the less comfortable (and protective) inserts, this jacket is by far the finest piece of riding gear I have ever owned or seen.
I give Rukka high marks for building a great product!

I have several jackets in my closet, and unless its cold out, I find myself going to this jacket more than any other.
It fits like a glove and allows full range of motion. Its the only jacket i own that honestly allows me to forget I'm wearing protection and just focus on the ride.
You will not be sorry investing in this jacket, just buy it!

Alright, I've now had the G-Adventures for about a week and half and I've taken a few rides in that time.
All I can really say is that these are by far the most (out of the box) comfortable boots I've tried that are in the "Adventure Boot" category. Meaning a high boot with adjustable buckle closures and a chunkier sole for off-road biased terrain.
The boot has great flex (give) in the area just behind the toe break area which has been a real issue with other "off-road" boots I've tried. Also a huge issue in the past (and the reason the A-Star Scouts were sold) was the lack of "feel" for the shifter/rear brake. Right out of the box I had great feel for the shifter, brake, as well as where my foot actually was on the pegs.
The durability and construction of this boot is great, especially for the price paid. I feel that the protection is almost as good as the scouts, so I'm willing to forgo a bit of protection (primarily in the ankle area) for the gain in comfort and feel for the bikes controls.
As far as fit is concerned, I normally wear a 11.5 shoe and a 45-46 in EU boots. for this boot I went with the size 12, which fits perfectly front to back, but is a wee bit tight in the toe box width. As these are an all leather boot, I'm pretty confident that this area will stretch a bit and feel better over time.
For anyone looking for a boot that can span the range of fire road/mild single track (not a replacement for a hardcore hard boot) to all weather on road service, I cant recommend this boot more highly.

Picked up a pair of these two weeks ago for shorter trips that really didn't warrant the time and effort of a full blown calf high boot.
These are exactly what I have come to expect from Dainese. Comfortable, well made, look great, offer great protection and they provide excellent tactile feel of the shifter and rear brake.
As I already mentioned, these boots look great. I was after a short boot that I could wear around town without visually announcing to everyone that I rode here on my R1200 GS! These are very supportive boots as well, with plenty of ankle protection and a plenty of padding inside to make your foot happy!
If your in the market for a boot that provides protection, but doesn't scream "I RIDE A MOTOR CYCLE, LOOK AT ME!!!!", these are worth a serious look.

Good afternoon,
I just wanted to share my positive experience with the new 2012 Bell Star (Matt Carbon) Helmet.
I was on the hunt for an alternate helmet to my Arai XD3, which is great for slower rides, but not too great for longer hauls on the Highway/Freeway at higher speeds (visor acts as a very effective sail!).
I looked at all sorts of helmets including Arai, Shuberth, AGV and few others, I wanted a high quality helmet, and I'm a firm believer in "you get what you pay for", so I was looking at helmets on the 450-800 dollar range. The Arai were nice, the Shuberth C3 was nice, but I really didn't want to take the chance of having the same issue as others did with the fit, I also thought the modular helmet thing was a bit "nerdy". The AGV's were nice and light (and cool looking), but the fit was wrong for my head.
I was even looking at purchasing the really nice looking Shuberth SR1 from a EU distributor, but I couldn't get a straight answer out of the folks in EU as to how I might be able to pay for the helmet using my credit card (their loss).
Enter BELL. I had noticed the Bell Star a few times during my search, because the shape and style really caught my eye. I kept clicking on the helmet to check it out, but was really skeptical due to the fact that it was a Bell helmet. My concern was that Bell has lost a lot of their "street cred" over the past six years (or more) and the quality was not on par with the brands I mention above.
Then I started some deeper research and learned that Bell was sold off once again a couple of years ago to Giro Helmets (cycling helmets I have used for years). I have a deep appreciation for Giro, and I know their attention to detail very well from my own personal experience using their products for the past twenty'ish years! I also learned that Giro is part of the parent company Easton (the carbon fiber specialists), whom I also have a ton of respect for.
Then I started reading the reviews that were posted on various sites to see what users had to say. I could not find a single review of the Bell Star (2010 forward) that had anything but positive stuff to say. Then I saw the new 2012 Matt Carbon Fiber model that just launched, and I had all the info I needed to move forward with the purchase. http://www.revzilla.com/motorcycle/b...n-solid-helmet
I took delivery if the helmet last week, and I can tell you that this helmet is one of the nicest I have ever seen. The carbon weave is perfectly executed. The helmet is very light, and the style is very well designed (not too flashy, but cool). Also the fit and finish is really well executed, with very tight tolerances between the small parts. The fit of the 2010 and later models is on par with Arai (if you wear a Med Arai, you wear a Med Bell Star).
The liner is incredibly soft and comfy. The air flow is unbelievable, and can be trimmed to meet you desired level of cooling. The aerodynamics (the main reason I was looking for another helmet) are really great. I can finally head check at speed without feeling like my head is going to ripped off my neck. Also the annoying flutter effect caused by windscreen turbulence is GONE! (BTW I ride a 2011 R1200 GS with a shortened windscreen). Also, this helmet is WAY quieter than my Arai. I still love my Arai, and I suspect the main culprit in making the Arai noisier is the visor, so I'll still be using my XD3 for slower stuff and off road trips.
I don't work for Bell, and I have no ulterior reason for writing this review other than the fact that this helmet simply exceeded my expectations, and I can imagine others would have the same apprehension I had about dropping big bucks on a Bell given their less than stellar reputation for putting out quality products a few years ago (warranted or not, perception is reality).
I know how hard business can be, and Bell earned my respect, so I thought I would share my positive experience.

Alright, I was only able to find one on line review of these pants, and the dude who was "modeling" them seemed more interested in modeling himself, than the pants. So I was left to read a few other reviews from various places. Sizing always seems to have come up as an issue in every review I found.
Honestly, I found the sizing on these to be WAY off. I normally wear a size 34 jeans (maybe a 35 if I've been slacking off and hitting the cookies a bit more than the gym), so I heeded the warnings I'd read about and ordered the EU 54. Its also worth mentioning that I've been an avid cyclist all my life and my quads are bigger than normal, but I'm not some sort of frog man. I'm 6' tall and I weigh 195lbs.
I took delivery of the 54's and they were way too small around the legs. (That's the entire leg including my calf's.) I couldn't get them all the way on without them immediately falling down. I sent them back and got the 56's (!), which do fit, but I had to modify them by removing the unnecessary padding that covers the upper quad area. That seems to have made them very comfortable.
So the moral is, if you have any leg strength at all, make sure you move up at least two EU sizes on their chart. If you do, you should be happy with these pants. between the 54's and the 56's, they seem to have the exact same length, so that shouldn't be an issue. Aside from the sizing inaccuracy, these are really nicely made, and should last quite a while. I wore them on a short ride last night, and they were really comfortable.
