Always spent top dollar for what was the "hot" tire.. Just finished up my 2nd set of PR3's... I ate them up and they cupped, after hearing from a few friends how they loved the Shinkos and the price, I decided to try one on the rear. So far, tire feels excellent. Not quite as aggressive a profile as the PR3 ( not quite as abrupt rounding profile) but my bike feels great (R1200RT-2010). I also feel great about saving $100+++ and I know the tire (and I'm sure any tire these days) has more built in performance than I do.
Tires are too new to rate them on wet weather and tire life, but a friend who also rides an RT routinely gets 10k on his Shinkos.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I just picked up the LaZer Carbon Fiber Monaco helmet and it has the micro-lock chin strap locking system... no way to put a cable through "D" rings to lock the helmet. (and this shiny all Carbon Fiber Helmet "draws" attention!). Using the helmetlock allows you to lock it up. The carabiner lock is not too big and I could probably use it a skoosh bigger as it just fits onto my R1200RT passenger handles.. but bigger can also be a minus. So, all in all, a useful tool to lock helmets that don't have the D Ring system.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I was looking for a new Modular... I have been using the Scorpion EXO-900 and knew it was very heavy and I suffer from neck pain. I started to consider the new Nolan N104 and the New Shoei MultiTec.. then I came across a review of the Lazer Carbon Fiber Monaco. The more I read about it and looked into it, the more I decided to give it a try. Well, I gotta say, I'm impressed. Extremely light and it is something you DO notice, especially when swiveling your head for traffic. Photochromic Shield works great, Ventilation is incredible compared to anything I've had in the past. I attached SENA BT kit to it, (had to remove the already installed LaZer BT wiring, EZ-Peazy) and it fits great. ....And, C'mon.. the Carbon Fiber is sexy! Just a Beautiful helmet.
Yes, I recommend this product.
