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.

The only difficult part for me in installing the Machineart Moto MudSling on my 2011 R1200R was removing the two Star (Torx) T25 screws underneath the wheel well. I bought Torx screw drivers but the screws wouldn't budge. Once I used Torx head sockets from Harbor Freight, the screws came right out. It does help to have two people to line up the MudSling so that it has proper clearance from the rear shock. The final thing, after inserting and tightening the longer screws supplied, is fitting and tightening long, black, plastic ties to the frame. Everything is very snug, and the MudSling looks like it's an OEM part, rather than an add on. (The New Jersey guy who makes this borrows a BMW from Hermy's Cycle in Port Clinton, PA to exactly measure, shape and produce this part.)
Yes, I recommend this product.

If you have a long, oval noggin, this is the helmet for you. No pressure points on the forehead or temple. Nice snug cheeks for a secure fit. It fits a tad different than my old Quantum F helmet. The chin section feels a bit higher. You'll get a whistle from the air vents on the front top of the helmet when you open them. I don't switch the visor so I can't comment on the ease of this procedure. I have Norman Hyde toga pipes on my Bonnie T100 that, even with ear plugs, rumbled inside my Shoei helmet like a base drum. That rumble is gone with the Profile. I'm guessing that the lower collar section of the Arai is snugger. The Profile has the drop down chin protector for cold air, but I've only had this lid since the spring (and fall is just approaching). At the current clearance price, this is a major bargain. I paid $60 more at another place 4 months ago, and that was an excellent price at the time. I have the black and white, that is stylish in a non-gaudy way, and also gives a bit more visibility for addled + distracted drivers.

Jumping through hoops to get that new bike onto base While Icon cant help you bypass military regulations, they can help you meet them without looking like a construction worker The Mil Spec vest was designed to pass all military requirements for a mandatory reflective vest No bright orange reflective vest is ever going to win you fashion awards, but if you have to wear one, and you do, it might as well have the style and features that wont make you cringe Removable I.D. holder Adjustable fit Reflective taping (front and back) Storage pockets

I bought this Icon mesh vest for my 86 year old father-in-law. He rides a 250cc Honda Helix scooter. He used to ride BMWs and Hondas, but his advanced age won't let him ride heavier two wheeld machines. A woman pulled directly in front of him several months back in a minivan, forcing him to go down. He was ok, other than for a slightly fractured pelvic bone. I wanted to get him something that would allow 4 wheeled machines to see him better. This vest is perfect. It's the ultra bright green/yellow color. He can adjust the sides to go over a jacket; it has pockets on the front, and he even heat pressed his WWII Navy insignia on the back. The mesh flows plenty of air and the vest folds up so he can stash it in the back of his Helix when he goes to his VFW meetings. He loves it and rides safer now.

Until such point where desire exceeds skill and ambition outweighs ability. The sum of this equation is the negative integer we refer to as pain. No jacket will completely prevent the pain from an imbalanced equation, but the Hooligan2 can help put the balance back towards your favor.

I had tried another summer jacket just before this one, but it was bulky, with little air flow, and the collar rode up and rubbed against my Adam's Apple on my bikes. It also didn't have a liner. The Icon Hooligan 2 Threshold Mesh has a thick liner that looks like it will be great in the fall and early spring. (It is now early June and 99 degrees in Philadelphia.) The jacket is well made, with PLENTY of mesh to move the air. It even has a section by the wrists that you can open to channel air up your arms. The graphics are subtle but classy. I bought white for visibility, and, with my black and white Arai Banda helmet, I'm sure that cars can see me better. I'm 5'11' and 150 lbs but discovered that the S/M fit me best. The jacket is very comfortable, with enough fit in the back that it doesn't ride up. I suppose the bulkier jacket would offer more protection, but it wouldn't protect me from having a heat stroke. The Icon keeps the sun off me, offers elbow, shoulder and back armor, makes me stand out to cars, and has been drawing waves from every kind of two wheeled machine out there. That's cool.

I was looking for solid summer gloves and found them with the Icon 29ers. Many that I tried had the right finger length, but the width was too tight. These had the correct width and length for me. Nice mesh material for air flow on the back with vents at the mid finger. A thick rubber material at the knuckles, and goat skin on the inner fingers and palm. No seam discomfort anywhere. Plus, a spiffy tapered rubber latch that connects to velcro for a snug fit. All this for a reasonable price. I haven't had these in the rain yet. My last pair of summer gloves (another brand) fell apart after one serious downpour.
