I just love these boots. I've had several different bikes with these boots and finally ended up on a 2012 Yamaha R1. These boots have been with me for 3 years and over 30,000 miles on them. I like to walk around at scenic locations and places of history. They're very comfortable. The sole is worn and they're now a little slippery on wet asphalt or pavement. Other than the sole getting worn, I've never had any complaints. I'm looking at the TCX Roadsters for me next pair.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I bought this headset pair for my girlfriend and I to use on the bike. She rides passenger on a 2012 Yamaha R1. We both utilize Icon Airframe helmets.
This is our first headset ever, so we really have nothing else to compare it to. This being said, here goes my review of the system.
Install: The kit came with both a wired "slim" microphone and a boom microphone. We actually ended up installing the "boom" mics in our helmets. They handle the wind noise a lot better and now there's hardly any unless you tilt your head awkwardly and the wind comes in from underneath the helmet chin area. Voice is crisp. I probably spent about two hours total toying and playing around with the system to make it as perfect as can be.
I do recommend using the supplied speaker spacers to get the speakers closer to your ears in these Airframe helmets. Both of us needed the speakers closer to our ears for maximum sound. Also, just because the cutouts for your ears are in the helmets doesn't necessarily mean that's where the ears on your head are located. We had to adjust our speakers closer to the straps. Doing this does make a significant difference without interfering with the straps.
Furthermore, the boom mic has plenty of room in these helmets. We both have room to move the mic closer to our lips, but it's not really required.
Phone Calls: Both my girlfriend and I have made phone calls on the bike in motion. The people had no idea we were going 80mph on a motorcycle! Great props there!
Wind noise while listening to music: With the supplied speakers that don't go in your ears, there's a lot of wind noise at highway speeds. I'm a big fan of clean sound and good bass. I'm actually thinking of purchasing the ear bud system for $30.00. Right now it's ok. I can deal with it, but I will reach my breaking point and end up buying it. The reviews have said that the mount breaks like once a year but you can use your own ear buds. It'd be worth it to me not to have to listen to the wind.

TCX Women's X-Square Boots Finally, a women's specific version of one of TCX's best-selling boots. TCX didn't just shrink and pink the X-Square Lady, but utilized the same anatomy-focused product development considerations for this Women's model that they have applied to others like the Lady Aura . These include using a women's specific last with narrower heel, lower toe box, and accommodation for a higher arch. Features UPPER suede with patent leather inserts and padded collar LINING 2D mesh PROTECTION ankle guards, reinforced toe and heel counter CLOSURE laces and Velcro band INSOLE molded EVA with antibacterial, moisture wicking face fabric SOLE wear-resistant, mono compound rubber sole with specific grip area

I ordered these for my girlfriend. In US, she is an 8 1/2 in women's athletic shoes. I ordered her a size 40 and it fits length wide but she is narrow footed and there's some play width wise. However she is happy with then but is concerned about lack of ankle protection. There is no ankle plate like the men's version that I have.

Dunlop Sportmax Q2 Rear Tire The new Dunlop 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!

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.
