This back pack is a good choice for those who need a high-vis backpack to include those needing access to military installations which have strict regulations regarding reflective vests while riding on base. This backpack will meet those requirements even when riding without the sleeves, which are thankfully detachable. My largest complaint comes with the fit and shape of the bag which is comfortable while riding in a half or full tuck but not while walking around and only marginally comfortable riding in a full upright riding posture.

This item fits perfectly on my Ducati 848 EVO, with the elasticated lower band hugging tight under both the front and rear wheel. I have dropped this cover on the bike while the engine was still pegging at 190 degrees and did not experience any problem with the heat resistant rear section. While it is camouflaged in color and pattern, the cover reflects headlamps well enough that I have no fears of the bike being plowed into in the parking lot and am more confident in its visibility with the cover than without. My only complaint with the cover is that its water repellant and not water proof (The item description is clear on this point and does not advertise itself as something it is not), this is only an issue on those rare nights where it rains after I have draft taped portions of the bike for the following day's track events and otherwise does an outstanding job keeping the weather off the bike.

Arai RX-Q Helmet - Solid Colors 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.

Today was my first full test of the RX-Q helmet with a 200 mile endurance ride covering environments from city streets, interstates, canyon twisties, and a short track run. Overall I am very impressed with the helmet and recommend it to those who are not shy about the cost. Even though my head shape is slightly longer than is ideal for many other helmets this shape fit well (though a profile may have fit better).
Speed 0-30: the ventilation on the helmet is as such that at anything other than a dead stop I was comfortable with the face shield down, despite the 97 degree temperatures.
Speed 30-80: Very comfortable for long distance riding with the vents forcing air over the entire head and not just into the face. My head was the most comfortable part of my body with respect to temperature and I was wearing a full mesh jacket. The volume was very manageable and I did not feel deaf after stopping from a 2 hour interstate jaunt.
Speed 80-120: At excessive speed I was not even aware of the helmet as it provided no distractions from the task of driving the bike. My head felt stable in the tuck, the shield was locked in place, noise was manageable, and visibility was superb.
I would recommend this helmet to anyone who has the right head shape and can afford the investment. When compared with the corsair, if you will wear the helmet on city streets (even if you will also wear it on the track).

I purchased these gloves for their fit and comfort. I have what I would describe as feminine hands with long slender fingers and a wide flat palm most gloves as a result fit tight in the webbing or loose in the fingers, these instead are a perfect fit and feel.
The trade off being protection. I would describe these as minimal but acceptable protection for the track a good pair for track day and street riding but worth upgrading down the road.
All in all a good and comfortable glove.
