Great Boot!

These boots are a great addition to anyone's gear. When I first got them and threw them on, they seemed a bit stiff and bulky. Now, after wearing them for a while, they have broken in nicely and are comfortable walking around in. These boots are definitely solid and have a high quality construction. I love the styling compared to other boots. These look almost like normal boots, not some funky superheroes shoes.
The main reason I got these though, is that my Icon Accelerant Waterproof boots were getting my feet hot because of the lack of breathability. These however, have mesh on the sides and the tongue is mesh as well allowing plenty of air to flow through to your feet. At speed, it feels great on a warmer day to have that airflow. Definitely recommend these boots to anyone! And as always, revzilla is my supplier of choice.
Pros Comfortable, Great Value, Fashionable, Rugged
Yes, I recommend this product.

This visor is perfect! I purchased the light smoke/fog-free visor and it makes a difference! First of all, the light smoke is great for the really bright sunshine and it is not bad riding at night at all. It looks a bit dark from the outside, but wearing it and looking through it, it does not cause too much of a visibility issue at night. Now as for the fog-free part, it is perfect! I can ride in 30's and breath as hard as I want onto it, but it will not fog. Works wonderfully!

 Two Brothers M-2 VALE Dual Slip-On Exhaust Kawasaki Z1000 07-08
Two Brothers M-2 VALE Dual Slip-On Exhaust Kawasaki Z1000 07-08
M-2 Dual Slip-On from Two Brothers Racing featuring the V.A.L.E. System which eliminates the need for springs, resulting in a more secure mounting. Allows the muffler assembly to be positioned perfectly on the bike before all the mounting hardware is fully tightened. After perfectly aligned, the V.A.L.E. assembly locks the muffler canister to the exhaust tube assuring a perfect, leak-free fit The M-2 Slip-On exhaust canisters feature the highest level of quality construction and are designed to be fully serviceable in the event of damage, routine maintenance or the occasional repack. Two Brothers Racings M series spring-mounted slip-on canisters all feature patented and exclusive lightweight thinwall die cast aluminum one-piece inlets. The exhaust note produced by all Two Brothers Top Level exhaust systems is best described as being deep and throaty without suffering from the shrill whine normally associated with other manufacturers straight through muffler canisters. The slip-on type of system replaces your existing s-bend pipe and exhaust canister. Two Brothers s-bends are manufactured from .035 thinwall stainless steel. They then polish them to a mirror finish. They use only #304 stainless which will never rust. Features Small, vertical, oval canister (4.85H x 3.75W) is available with an aluminum high-polish finish, black carbon fiber (filament wound) or natural titanium matte-grey color 2.25 stainless steel, power core Packing consists of a first stage (stainless steel wool) and a second stage (high-temperature fiberglass) Comes with a billet, anodized, aluminum-inlet endcap Teflon coated, die-cast, magnesium-outlet endcap Polished Aluminum Aluminum is a lightweight and strong material used extensively in the aerospace, automotive, and of course, motorcycle industries. Aluminum is a wise choice due to its excellent strength to weight ratio, corrosion resistance, and clean look. We use lightweight thin-wall .060 extruded 6061 aluminum alloy that is heat treated to a T-6 condition for increased strength, durability, hardness, and finish hold. After the aluminum has been heat treated, it is cut to length and given a mirror polished finish. Ounce for ounce, aluminum is the best value of all the M and C series mufflers. As a rule the aluminum mufflers weigh about 8.3oz. more than Titanium or Carbon Fiber mufflers. Carbon Fiber Two Brothers has been using Carbon Fiber in motorcycle mufflers since 1992. They are currently the only US Company to exclusively use Filament Wound Carbon Fiber (FWCF) on every carbon fiber muffler they sell. They draw on only the best high temperature resins, and control a proprietary lining system adopted from spacecraft, for additional heat resistance. The FWCF is continuously wound over a precision machined mandrel for a 100 seamless bond. The FWCF tube is then cured in a high temperature autoclave oven for superior strength and heat resistance. These crucial elements meld to form a precision lightweight muffler that will perform as well as it looks. Titanium By weight titanium is one of the worlds strongest readily available metals, making it ideal for the M series mufflers. It is 45 lighter than steel with comparable strength, and twice as strong as aluminum while being only 60 heavier. Thats right, titanium is HEAVIER than aluminum, but since it is twice as strong they are able to use very thin (.024) material to construct the Titanium muffler. The result is a muffler that is about 8.30z lighter than the M or C series aluminum mufflers. Titanium has become an industry standard for motorcycle mufflers due to its durability, corrosion resistance, light weight, and factory look.

Best exhaust you can get!

Hands-down the best (and most expensive) exhaust you can get for the FZ6. I have heard many in person, but this has the most amazing sound! It has a great, deep burble at idle and low RPM's, but once you wind it out it screams!!! Loud as crap, but I like that. Looks incredible too (I got the carbon fiber). Buy it.
Pros Fashionable, Rugged
Yes, I recommend this product.

This bag is a really nice bag. I love the look of it and it has great features that I haven't found in any other tank bag. My only gripe with the bag is that it can scratch the tank up. There are magnets that keep it down, but the magnets are wrapped in a leatherish type material. That material is not that soft and if you move the magnets, it will leave fine scratches. I was slightly upset by that. Oh well. Other than that its a great functioning bag.

These gloves are quite a sight to behold in person. The pictures don't do them enough justice. They not only look great, but they have a lot more padding than you can see in the pics. They are leather so it is a tight fit at first, but in time they will break in nicely. They will take anything you can throw at them. Glad I wasn't cheap and decided to get a decent set of gloves. They go well with the Hooligan Stealth jacket.
Pros Fashionable, Comfortable, Rugged

These pants are really sweet! I got them because they looked awesome and I was hoping that they would match the Hooligan Stealth Jacket. THEY DO MATCH PERFECTLY!! (They both use the same mesh/materials and the rubber logos are the same) I think they should call these hooligan mesh pants because the two items are a great pair. The pants fit really nicely and the extra length in the legs is a welcome change so now I don't have my pants riding above my boots. The armor is adjustable and it should do the job when you go down. Great product and gotta love the 'zilla!!

This jacket is amazing! It fits true to size and matches the Icon Arc Mesh overpants that I also ordered. The mesh of the two items is the same and the rubber "icon" logos match up nicely. The armor is nice as well (they don't say anything, but there is armor on the back as well.) The liner is really nice and thick so it keeps you warm on the colder nights. I also discovered a little metal "Saint Christopher Protect Us" charm in the inside pocket hahaha.
My only concern would be that they use these plastic snaps to attach the mesh that may wear out over time...we will see. All in all I love this jacket and think it is a great value.

These boots fit perfectly! They were a little stiff at first but after wearing them a bit they broke in nicely. The boots look great and can be worn under pants and no one will know that they are motorcycle boots. These are also extremely comfortable to wear walking around. Light material makes them easy to forget you are wearing them. I would get them again.
Pros Comfortable, Fashionable, Rugged, Great Value
