Solid set of good quality boots. The footbed provides a lot of support and protection, as do the shin guards. For all the protection, these boot are comfortable in a pretty broad range of temperatures. They are Gore-Tex and breath, though they get a bit stuffy as the temperatures climbs over 95F. I've comfortably worn these boots on 2 to 3 hour rides as well as all day at work. They are on the heavier side, so I wouldn't want to walk any major distance in them, but they work great for casual touring, errands, etc.
Yes, I recommend this product.

This backpack rides great. The aerodynamics make it very comfortable. I don't notice any drag when riding with this pack on. The storage is pretty good, though it is a little on the small side. It does fit a laptop pretty well, and will carry some basics. The lid has a very usable storage compartment as well. The integrated helmet net is a great feature and very convenient, as is the integrated rain cover. I find this is the perfect pack for running small errands or meeting up with friends. Works ok for commuting as well, though definitely on the minimalist side.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I wanted a jacket that would offer me a high level of protection without dying in the heat. The fit and style on this jacket is perfect, and the protection features are great for spirited street riding. And on days up to about 95-degrees, this jacket is great. Even a little chilly in the 70's. Much hotter than 95, and yes it is definitely too much at anything but highway speeds. This is my go-to 3-season jacket, with my mesh coming out only on the hottest days.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Arai RX-Q Helmet - Solid Colors The Arai RX-Q Helmet is a top end street oriented version of the race bred Corsair V with similar features, but built for everyday use. Expect and Arai RX-Q to stand at the top of the heap for upright, 3/4 and spirited riding applications on road and in dualsport environments. Designed for the street without giving up the benefits of a racing helmet. Completely new helmet based on Corsair V shell Same wider eyeport opening as Corsair V Same face shield as the Corsair V Intermediate Oval Fit (same head shape as Quantum 2) Slightly different feel due to new cheek pads. New cheek pads come down further and cradle the head better. Made of a different density material which results in an extremely comfortable and quiet helmet Advanced ventilation Smaller, More Aerodynamic shell shape Hyper-Ridge circles lower shell to improve strength and aerodynamics Retractable chin spoiler Emergency Cheek Pad Removal system along with removable neck roll One piece bottom edge trim Race helmet for the street 5 unique size shells (XS, S, M/L, XL, XXL). Weight 1597 grams (3 lbs. 8-1/4 oz) Meets or exceeds SNELL M2010 and DOT specifications NOTES The Pearl Black color listed for this product has a very subtle metallic flake whereas the Diamond Black color has a more pronounced metallic. Also, helmet does not ship with the Pinlock face shield as shown. Pinlock face shield available as an accessory.

The helmet fit is great. All the venting flows a lot of air. Plenty of room for eye glasses. Very stable and perfect for an upright riding position. I ride a Triumph Bonneville, and this helmet is perfect.
Yes, I recommend this product.
