It works as advertised. I usually wear very dark safety glasses when I ride on a sunny day. With this visor, I can wear clear safety glasses (I raise my visor when I'm below 35 mph and I never ride naked). This is a big plus as I don't have to stop and change glasses as it gets darker or cloudy. Also, it is easier for me to see my LCD info screen and GPS in changing sunlight without the dark glasses. I'll buy another when this one is too scratched (hope it's cheaper then).
Yes, I recommend this product.

Great helmet. I've had a visor on my helmets for years -- eyes sensitive to sunlight, especially in early morning or late afternoon. The Arai visor works quite well. Very aerodynamic. I can cruise at 90 and do head checks with no problem. The wide visor opening is another plus. My other helmet is a **** and you can really notice the advantage the Arai has when you do a head check. The helmet would be perfect if Arai offered a shield that darkened in sunlight (hint, hint).

For visibility, reflection panels have been laminated onto the fabric at strategic positions on the upper arms. Plus, theres plenty of storage in this jacket, both inside and outside this includes a waterproof document pocket behind the front closure, and easy storage for the hoodie in the collar pocket. Available in classic black and high-visibility neon yellow. Comes with a handy transport bag.

The same size REV'IT Nitric jacket fits over the same size REV'IT Dragon jacket. I was a bit worried about that, but the fit is perfect, no binding, no snug spots. A bit bulky under the chin, but workable. I wore it on a rainy day, but only got road spray, so I can't say how good it will be in heavy rain. If the fabric is as waterproof as it seems, it should work fine. Good quality, even with the goofy left-handed zipper (what is with those people at REV'IT?).
Yes, I recommend this product.

This review is for the white version only. Very strong boot, excellent toe, ankle and heel protection. It's been a hot summer and I've been riding in jeans and work boots. The work boots offer marginal protection even for casual off-roading. The Tech 2s take care of that problem. The toe box is stiff and roomy enough for thick socks. You loose some feel, but up-shifts are more positive because the toe box doesn't give. The boots (white) are vented with a 5/8" metal mesh covered hole and three smaller holes near the larger. Don't step in water deeper than 2" or the boots will fill. You may be able to make them somewhat water resistant with duct tape over the vents. Also, improved reach to the ground because of the cut-away on the rear of the boots (big deal for R1200GS owners). Obviously, this boot will not protect shins from contact with the pegs. Only gripe: poor traction on wet grass and damp soil -- not much of a tread pattern on the sole.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Well made pant, should last for quite a while. Fairly easy on and off. Haven't been able to test their rain resistance yet; very little rain so far. The fit is odd. I have an older pair of REV'IT Sand Pants in 2XL that fit fine, but 2XL in the Axis Pant wouldn't pull up past my knees over jeans (38x30). The 3XLs fit okay, but it makes you wonder how they come up with these sizes. 'Zilla customer service is very good. Talk to them about sizing before you order.

I was hoping to use the Detecto 7000 on the rear disk. The key area of this lock is about 1/16" too large to do the deed. Since my bike has a steering lock, I felt a lock for the rear disk would be just about right for minimal security. Not gonna happen with this lock.
As for the lock itself: The alarm is not very loud. Outdoors it's barely noticeable as an alarm, and it only stays on for 15 seconds. I'm not going to get into how difficult the lock may be to remove. I'm a Toolmaker and cutting metal is my business. I'm not going to give out any hints.
It may keep an inexperienced thief or nosy vandal from messing with your bike, but I would not rely on it alone.

AltRider BMW R1200GS Side Stand Foot Your big BMW engine commands respect off road and on, but you can help it retain that dignity by providing it with a side stand foot that reflects its size. The AltRider Side Stand Foot for the BMW R 1200 GS provides your bike with a larger footprint, so it can easily keep it from sinking into soft ground. Made from hefty 1/8 inch stainless steel, this foot features a 3D tread that echoes the aggressive AltRider Oil Cooler Guard design, while providing traction for your boots. It is the most ergonomic design on the market, allowing easy deployment of the side stand while still on the bike. The AltRider foot also clamps down on the actual foot of the side stand with Torx fasteners, which means the piece will remain tight even after months of use. No more rattling or stripped fasteners. Note Not compatible with 2010 R1200 GS L Low version. Made from 1/8 inch stainless steel Torx fasteners (requires T-25 Torx driver) Includes Loctite (except on international orders) Compatible with BMW R 1200 GS Adventure Height 1 inch Width 4 inches Depth 4 inches Weight 0.5 lbs Read More About AltRider's Development of the Side Stand Foot

It's made out of stainless steel, it's easy to install, and it works. I live out in the country, just about everywhere I park is on some kind of dirt or gravel. I no longer have to look for rocks or other debris to set the stand on. I'm happy.

A comfortable and light fit. Picks up a bit more wind noise than I like, but not objectionable, Sheds rain well. The one shortcoming that I have found is that I would like a stronger detente for the visor in the up position. When you hit 40-45 mph the visor will automatically go to close or half-close. On a cool, humid morning, when things fog up easily on a twisty, country road, I had to hold the visor open with my left hand until the sun rose enough to warm things up. Other than that, I'm very satisfied with my purchase.
