2005 FZ6 with Givi E41's in Satin silv
I had these installed on my 2005 FZ6 using SW Motech Quick Lock racking. Excellent combo. I ride my daily commute 9-10 months a year in the Vancouver area in all sorts of weather. Never a leak. Hatch is super handy, didn't realize how much so until I started using it. Don't plan on carrying these into work each day, they are heavy and awkward to carry. I got a Givi Bag liner and use that, much better.
Michelin Pilot Road 3 Rear Tires Building on the tremendous reputation Michelin has built over the years, the Michelin Pilot Road 3 Tire is the successor to the award winning Pilot Road 2.

Put these on my 2005 FZ6 about 2000k ago and wow what a difference. I commute in the raining wet coast of BC and these have provided excellent confidence in the corners in pouring rain. Dry weather these things stick wonderfully. I am VERY happy with the all weather traction and great dry road performance! Cheers

Stopped my fogging issue in its tracks. It does get a bit of condensation around the nose area if I am breathing heavy but its just that, condensation. No fog at all. I have the clear lens and the dark smoke. Easy to switch between the two. Just wish someone made a nice protective case to put it in when not using but want to keep with me.

Using with Givi E41's. I commute to work and when I get to the city I simply take my Givi bag out of the E41 and walk to the office. Pro: Lots of pockets, big and seems to be sturdy; super handy Cons: Ugly colour, not silver not blue not grey, odd; doesn't fit perfectly in the E41. Its close but you have to massage it into place so it doesn't get caught when trying to close the case Wish it was in black and hope it holds up to daily use.

I have owned several helmet's and was looking to buy a higher quality product on this purchase. I have typically used HJC but wanted to upgrade as I said.
Things I noticed: 1.) Noise: Not exceptionally quiet but not loud by any stretch. 2.) Fit: Cheek pads were very snug on mine at first. After a few weeks they did wear in, but are still giving a light "chipmunk" feeling. I may look into switching them this season. 3.) Visor: Disappointed that there is not a heated option available (or at least I haven't found one yet) as the regular shield fogs up quickly in cooler days/nights. I do a lot of early/late season riding as a commuter on the rainy west coast of Canada. I hear the pin lock option works great, I will switch to that soon. 4.) I use a Scala communicator with this helmet and the boom mike fits great.
Overall, this helmet is a great bang for your buck and is reasonably priced in the solid colour option for a value conscious consumer
