This is a great item for those going for a long ride. I recently did a 1600mi ride in 3 days. Generally, my neck and shoulders would hurt after a day's ride. Not this time! This neck roll holds your neck and head just enough to pad vibrations and to avoid neck pain. Somehow it has a small tendency to rotate towards one side but this is a very minor thing that I tough I would comment on. Great item. As I said, if you are in for a long ride,you will not regret it!

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.

The Arai RX-Q is a relatively light weight, well balanced helmet with a solid construction. This helmet is a bit noisy, so I gave it an average for that. The ventilation, however, is phenomenal! I have just completed two 500mi trips at 85-90F and it was perfect! (I find the cheek pads a little too tight but you can remove them if you want for proper fitting). I would also prefer the padding in the chin strap to be a bit longer. Overall, this is an excellent helmet that I would recommend to anyone.

Alpinestars SMX-2 Air Carbon Gloves With carbon protection and motocross inspired styling and comfort, the Alpinestars SMX2 Air Carbon glove makes an excellent choice for summer motorcycle riding Utilizing an advanced leather and mesh hybrid construction, Alpinestars SMX-2 Air Carbon Glove offers the street rider superior comfort and performance while the carbon fiber knuckle and Clarino reinforced palm ensures high levels of protection. Lightweight hybrid leather and mesh upper construction offers the ideal combination of durability, abrasion resistance and comfort. Synthetic leather palm construction with Clarino reinforcements provides extra durability and protection where it is needed most. Reinforced landing zone with built in foam padding offers additional impact protection Sizing Note If you are in between sizes order a size larger, in RevZilla's experience these gloves fit slightly small.

I have just completed a trip of 1000mi on my 03 Yamaha FJR 1300 on temperatures above 80F. Ventilation and comfort were great. Size is true. My only concern (take this with a grain of salt) is the little rubber reinforcement at the wrist causes a funny wrinkle to form that I bet it will eventually stress the material and cause to fail or tear...just a thought...will let you know if this actually happens! Other than that excellent pair of gloves... and yes, I would recommend them to anyone doing summer riding.
