Dunlop Sportmax Q2 Rear Tire The new Q2 incorporates race-tested advancements that add up to a vastly superior tire equally at home on the street or the track. Intuitive Response Profile (IRP) technology in the rear tire intuitively allows the rider greater latitude in line choice while cornering and provides amazingly linear steering no matter what shape, speed or camber the corner, and at all lean angles Radical new profile puts down a bigger footprint at extreme lean angles while also allowing greater lean angles and higher corner speeds to provide substantially better grip and handling Dunlops advanced Multi-Tread technology combines the benefits of a tough, long-wearing center compound for increased mileage with a special lateral-grip compound on each shoulder for superior cornering traction New carcass construction in both the front and rear tires includes newly designed continuous hex beads that are both lighter and stronger to enhance steering response in the front tire and increase cornering stability in both tires Q2 rear tire features a newly developed, stiffer version of Dunlops Jointless Band (JLB) construction that utilizes a continuously wound aramid belt for reduced carcass distortion, plus stiffer overall construction to meet high-performance demands and provide a more consistent contact patch Dunlop Tire Tips Guide (pdf)

First and foremost, I ride a 2012 Yamaha R1 Raven. These tires are amazing! I've ridden 100mph in the pouring rain on the interstate and these tires never lost traction. They do nothing but inspire confidence! On the rear tire, I got 6,373 miles out of it before the wear bars appeared. The front was still good to go. However, I replace tires as a set and I decided to go with the Pirelli Angel GT's because they say they'll last twice as long and the reviews and videos of them are simply amazing. I just installed the Pirelli's and the bike is way more sensitive on turn in and the traction is amazing. Can't wait to run these babies in and see what kinda mileage I get out of them!
Yes, I recommend this product.

I'm a lover of Alpinestars. I'm 5'10 and 195lbs. I do a lot of weight lifting. The jacket will work but the pants are long. I ordered the size Large. I think I can tuck the pants into my over shoes or something. I'll play with it. But excellent quality. The jacket and pants roll up into the stuff sack and takes up MUCH LESS space than my old Motocentric suit. You can put this inside a two liter bottle of soda girth wise, and it might be half as tall. Works slick!

I just got this seat installed this weekend then went on a 7 hour motorcycle ride on Sunday. Very easy to install. I took the rear seat /included seat cover to a shop here in town and they covered it for a whopping $10.00. Saddleman will do it for $35 plus freight. The seat itself is extremly comfortable. The space really increases blood flow and air circulation. The gel padding is exactly where it needs to be. The seat is firm but a far cry from the stock seat. Highly recommend this seat!! The carbon fiber look goes great with my carbon fiber exhaust covers.

I just received this tank bag yesterday and have not yet mounted it on the bike. I did stick it to the refrigerator and seems to hold really well even pulling on it, didn't budge. The stitching on the interior of the bag could be better. I don't forsee this bag lasting long without having to take it in and having the sewing reinforced. I'll write a followup later on down the line.

If you ride below 30 degrees, this is the balaclava for you! This really does keep your neck, throat, and face warm, as if you were home by a lit fireplace. It works great in the teens and 20s, all the way up into the 40s. It is super warm. I wish it'd cost less, but it really works!! I do have the $15 version and it just doesn't cut it. This one does the job, all by itself, without any added layers.

These glove liners are amazing!!! All you really need is some thin leather over gloves that are slightly larger so you can fit these on your hands, inside the over gloves. There are 5 heat settings, 1-5. I used these here in Clarksville, TN in about 10 degrees last night. I used the number 3 option and my hands were sweating. I went down to number 2 and they were still toasty. Haven't tried 4 or 5 or number 1 yet, but I'm sure they'll work just fine in sub-zero temperatures!!! Why I waited so long to purchase heated gloves?? I have no idea. But no more cold hands for this fella!!

I used this last night here in Clarksville, TN with a Shoei RF1100 when it was about 15 degrees out. I had it pulled up over my nose. Obviously, you'll have fogging issues when stopped. It's too easy to flip open the face shield. It kept my face warm to a "slight chill". The fleece liner is great. It's where it stops is the issue. I'd recommend this product for about the mid 30's and and warmer. I'd suggest the $35 option, although I haven't tried that one.
Yes, I recommend this product.

The helmet has a matte finish with a skull and cross-bones theme over sweeping wings. The new RF-1100 helmets build on the success of their predecessor the RF-1000. Combining dealer and customer requests with advanced technology and modern testing practices, Shoei's world-class development team threw out the molds to build a brand-new helmet from scratch. SHOEI is pleased to deliver the finest sport-touring helmet that money can buy. Tech Specs 5 shell sizes Weight 3.54 Pounds / 1604grams (based on size medium / solid color) DOT and Snell M2010 approved CW-1 Face Shield The CW-1, three-dimensionally curved shield is both wider and taller than the CX-1V it replaces Q.R.S.A.

The name speaks for itself... And it's a Shoei. Can't go wrong!! This is my 2nd Shoei helmet. My first saved my skull on the pavement and I chose Shoei again. I won't ride anything else!
