Sizing: I wear an 11 in Nike shoes and a 11.5 in Pumas; I ordered a 45 and they fit perfect. I have narrow feet and these fit good in the foot, but slip in the heel a little more than ideal.
The Bad: So far my only pet peeve is that I cannot tighten the boot down enough; I almost worry that these could come off if I go down. I'm a skinny guy so maybe if you have bigger legs these will be tight enough in the top of the boot, but if I was going to make these purchase again I'd have to take that into consideration and there is no way I'd take these to the track.
The Good: I chose these because I wanted something stylish, waterproof & comfortable for long trips and these fit that bill perfect. I really like the way they look and feel; they are comfortable on and off the bike. I've been on two 2-day trips and seen rain on both and these boots have performed great. The quality appears to be good so as long as they hold up I'll be happy with the purchase.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Just spent a day in the jacket; started in high 60's and ended in mid 80's; with the arm vents closed jacket was comfortable in the morning and with the arm vents open the jacket flowed plenty of air in the afternoon.
Quality appears to be top notch, protection inspires confidence and the jacket is very stylish IMHO.
Versatility is the reason I bought this jacket and I think it delivers. I'm not sure how it would be in cold winter days, but I live in Texas so I'm more concerned about hot summer days. I'll probably end up getting the Airwave for the 100 degree months, but I think this Jacket will get a lot of use and be in heavy rotation.
I'm 5'10 155lb with 40" chest and the 48 fits perfect.

Materials are top notch and the gloves appear to be very durable. I've used them in 40 -70 degrees so far with no wind protection and with the warmers turned off and my hands were comfortable all day.
I'm still undecided on the cuff; it's designed to go outside or inside the jacket, but because of the versatility it doesn't do either great. I couldn't get it under my winter jacket while the jacket had its inter liner in; it will go over, but it takes a little working around. And once it's over the velcro strap just hangs. Its just a minor inconvenience that costs you a couple of extra seconds when gearing up.
Overall, very solid glove for the money.

I started using S100 a few months ago; it does a really good job and I feel safe using it all over the bike. You can make it last longer by pouring a small amount in a bucket and adding water and just spaying it directly to problem areas.

The PUMA Testastretta II Mid mixes the essence of PUMA and moto performance into a street-ready style. The Testastretta II Mid takes performance elements from the MotoGP, using the looks of the vamp shiftguard, slider, heel counter and separate aluminum heel to bring authenticity to this moto trainer. It also has a synthetic upper, injected EVA midsole for cushioning and an oil-resistant, non-slip rubber sole. Whether you're on a bike or on foot, this shoe is all about the motorsport lifestyle.

These are not that protective, but they are a nice step up from hightops. They are quick to get on and off and are really comfortable. I wear an 11 in Nike and Puma and I ordered a 45 and they fit perfect.

I did a lot of research on the POV cams before I bought and it really comes down to the Drift HD, GoPro HD and the Oregon Scientific ATC9K. There are a few side by side comparisons on youtube that eliminated the ATC9K for me; probably because the smaller field of view and the mic seemed to have inferior quality.
My buddy has the GoPro HD; we make vids of our rides and the vid quality and sound are the exact same between the Drift HD and the GoPro HD. GoPro HD has more mounting options right out of the box (at the same price point as the Drift HD), but with the rotating base clip and rotating lens I haven't had any trouble mounting the Drift HD to my bike or helmet. The only real advantage the GoPro HD has over the drift is the waterproof case it comes with; it's bullet proof in that case.
The Drift HD was the best cam for me because of the LCD screen, zoom and shape. The LCD screen is a must; we've wasted entire days on the GoPro HD because we didn't get the angle right on the mount and the LCD menu is far easier to operate the cam; my buddy literally has to carry a manual for the GoPro HD because it is so hard to operate. Zoom has also been a handy option that to my knowledge the GoPro HD doesn't have. And finally the shape; the shape of the Drift HD has a lot less drag than the GoPro HD does, which really matters on a helmet mount; you can feel the difference in drag on your neck and the shape gives the Drift HD a cooler look too!

Flows a ton of air and looks good doing it!
I'm 5'10 with a 31" waist and my shirt size is 15.5 34/35 and the 52 fits perfect and has room for a base layer.
If you haven't purchased from Revzilla they are the best online distributor out there!
