I live in So. Cal. we have generally mild weather. Since I commute, it can be as cold as 50F in the mornings and 95F by mid afternoon. I needed a glove that covered that range. This glove is perfect. One note, using the size chart, I was suppose to get size 11... I went for the 12 which fits perfectly. As always, Revzilla made life easy for me. Thanks guys.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I purchased this boot with protection in mind and from the construction, it seems like it will do it's job. I gave it a fair rating on air flow, but it even has less than that, but it's a "rain boot," it's not about air flow. I've used it on a daily basis since it showed up about two weeks ago for my Southern California commute with 105 temps in the valley and it was still OK, so don't let air flow be your deciding factor here. The sole is stiff and grips well which is great on the bike especially if you like to stand on the pegs... It feels more like a stiff hiking boot when walking around. I was concerned about getting in and out of it as I change several times during the day, but they are easy to deal with. I've not used them in the rain and won't for a while yet, but the way they are constructed, I can't imagine any problems there. You may have to a adjust your shift lever up a bit for the added volume of the toe box.
Yes, I recommend this product.

It was the OEM tire on my Ducati Streetfighter. The bike is used for some commuting and "canyon play," but never used for track days. The tire was great for 4,000 miles and even though it was paper thin when I changed it, it still held the road well. There was no question that I would put the same tire on as the replacement.

It was the OEM part that came on my Ducati Streetfighter. I don't do track days on this bike, but the tire would have done well on the track. I use the bike for a reasonable amount of commuting and some medium to hard "canyon days." Both front and rear tires were ready to be changed at 4,000 miles. The good news is that even though they were paper thin at that point, they still stuck to the ground well.
Yes, I recommend this product.

The fit and comfort of this boot is great right out of the box. The sole is firm, but light walking (not all day) around is OK... It also has great grip on the bottom, so it stays where you put it on the peg. I've only owned Sidi before and for around the same price, this boot seem to have more all around protection.
Yes, I recommend this product.
