I was in the market for a taller boot to use during long rides and wet weather. Ideally I wanted an adventure boot that could deal with the occasional dirt and gravel trips on my GS. I found this pair and for the price I figured I would give them a try. I was pleasantly surprised with the fit, I am a 10.5 and ordered an 11. I have very big calves and was still able to close the boots with my jeans tucked in . I could also put my boot cut jeans over them with no problem. They were a bit stiff at first but have since broken in and I really feel comfortable and secure in them. The buckle adjustment is pretty good, again since I have big calves I was worried I couldn't close the top one but it adjusted fine and they stay secure once adjusted correctly. There isn't a very aggressive tread on the bottom so I am not sure how much "adventure" they will really see but for wet weather commuting, sport-touring and long distance rides they will be great. If they had a bit more aggressive sole they would be perfect but for the price I would buy them again.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I had been looking for a nice leather riding jacket for quite some time. I have several other jackets and riding suits but was missing a good quality leather. My riding style varies depending on the bike. I have both sport and dual sport bikes so when buying this jacket I was worried the arms would have too much pre-curve for standard riding positions. No issues with this jacket.
Unfortunately my jacket arrived when the temps where finally down below freezing so I didn't get to try it out immediately. Regardless fit was spot on. I am a 42s in a suit and the 54 fit perfect if not a little loose without the liner. The arms are a bit snug but I like them that way, they will break in after a few hundred miles. The waste and torso are perfect. With the liner and a t-shirt the jacket is very mobile. The look is awesome, just the way I like it. Thick black leather with subtle logos. If you know motorcycles you will know it is a Dianese but if not you might think it was just a really nice leather. No flashy graphics or too many buttons or zippers. There is little ventilation so I expect in the summer that this jacket may not get much mid day ride time.
Yesterday the temps were in the 40s so I decided to go out for a ride. This jacket performed excellent. At highway speeds I was very comfortable both temp wise and fit wise in a standard riding position. I loved the feel of the jacket and I was kept warm the whole time with no cold air creeping in at all. Again, in summertime I would expect this jacket to be a little heavy even with the liner out.
All in all, I knew I was getting top quality leather when I ordered and the Dianese team didn't let me down. The price is up there but you get what you pay for . Save some Christmas money, skip the cheap leather and go for this jacket!!
Yes, I recommend this product.

I was looking for a more stable, all weather tire for my Versys. While I don't go offroad much on my versys, that was mainly due to the terrible stock tires which left my confidence even on dry pavement low. I read a lot of reviews on these tires and all sounded great other than tread life. I have about 200 miles on them so far and I can say, i don't care about tread life! They feel so much more stable in all conditions. I rode through a storm on the way home from work and I just felt so much more in control of my bike. If you want something that can do the dirt occasionally as well as wet weather on your Versys, these are the tires. Stability, confidence and they look awesome! If you are just a street rider on your Versys, go with the Pilot Road 2 or 3s. They are the best for all-weather asphalt.
I'll try to report back in another 2000 miles on the tread life. regardless, safety and confidence are worth 200 bucks every year or so (if the rumors are true on the back tire tread life).
Yes, I recommend this product.

If you have been going back and forth between the Nolan, Shuberth and others for weeks like I have, this review may help. Helmets are important investments for your health, comfort and looks while riding. I wanted the cool flip up, it works well, opens with a single gloved hand and can be closed while riding (even though i don't recommend). The actual flip is easy and securing the chinbar can be done with one hand but I recommend two in order to make sure both sides click. The insides are comfy, high quality padding. Vision is awesome, drop down visor works well. Both the shade and shield are optically correct and crystal clear. I read reports of the shade not coming down low enough but it does for me and i wear glasses. I did notice that the helmet can shift back a little on your head if you don't have the strap on right, this could cause the visor from not coming down far enough. Make sure your strap is secure and you have the right size! Note on the glasses, they have little pads that can be removed to make room for your glasses and they work perfect!!! I have been riding Shoei for a long time, they fit my head great. I'm a large and bought a large in the Shark Evoline 2 ST which fits perfect with the exception of two areas. While closed there is pressure on my forehead/front of helmet and the cheek pads are too thick. I have been waiting for the XL replacement pads to become available again, this will fix the cheeks. Makes me look like a chipmunk when in 3/4 mode. Airflow is great, noise is what you would expect from a modular. I will wear earplugs on long rides. My old Shoei was just as loud. I went back and forth between the Nolan and this helmet. If you are on the fence and want a modular that lets you ride while flipped up, look no further. It is worth the money!!!
Yes, I recommend this product.

Love the sleek look of the glove. As with other reviewers, the pinky is extra long compared to the rest of the fingers. Fits a bit tight at first but after riding with them a couple weeks the gloves have broken in and they are very comfotable. They feel a little thin in the palm but overall they are a good lightweight glove with decent protection
Yes, I recommend this product.
