So this is the famous Daytona M-Star boot, famous because it probably adds more reach to the ground (i.e., lift) than any other boot on the market. I went from balls of my feet to flat footing my VFR800, for instance.
But that great benefit aside, this boot is incredibly well made. Very high quality materials, very flexible fitment, very solid feel. The first 6 or so times I put it on it was a real struggle to get the full zipper up but eventually the leather loosened up enough so that it wasn't such a chore. In my mind that's a reflection of how securely this boot fits after break-in.
I haven't had the opportunity to test the watertightness of this boot, but I've worn it in 100+ degree heat and had no unusual discomfort. This boot will do it all.
I fully expect to keep this boot for years, and will resole it if I need to. I can't say the same thing about the Dainese Nighthawk boot this replaced, which isn't half the quality even though it was more than half the price. That's not a knock on Dainese, that's just how good the Daytona boot really is.

Schuberth C3 Pro Helmet The Schuberth C3 Pro has been redesigned to improve on the original C3, which was already one of the quietest and most technologically advanced helmets ever produced. The rear spoiler, which has been further optimized in extensive wind tunnel testing, turns the C3 Pro into a real sport helmet which also demonstrates outstanding aerodynamic properties at high speeds in excess of 100 mph. With its enhanced aeroacoustics of 82 dB(A) at 100 km/h the C3 Pro is one of the quietest helmets in the world. The C3 Pro also incorporates two integrated antennas for increased ranges and better FM radio reception prepared for the fully integrated communication unit SRC-System. The inner lining, made of carefully selected materials such as COOLMAX, Interpower and Thermocool, has been extensively re-shaped and redesigned and sets new benchmarks with respect to comfort. New or Updated Features Redesigned shell is more aerodynamic and provided more downforce at higher speeds with little buffeting Interior helmet sound levels have been reduced to 82 dB(A) at 60 mph C3 84 dB(A) Interior liner has been completely redesigned with fewer seams and a more universal, interior fit Improved EPS with integrated antenna for SRC-System which improves radio and Bluetooth range New micro-lock ratchet chin strap Larger reflective panels on neckroll Improved faceshield ratcheting Integrated sun visor has a new look and improved quality Acoustics A quiet helmet means active safety for the motorcyclist. This permits the rider to concentrate on riding particularly at higher speeds. Many hours in the Schuberth acoustics wind tunnel have ensured that the C3 Pro is quiet. The comprehensive acoustics package with optimized helmet shell, wind deflector and ergonomic shape of the neck padding make the C3 Pro at 82 dBA one of the quietest helmets of all. Acoustics package makes helmet quiet Installation of a wind deflector enables the aeroacoustics and consequently the noise level to be improved still further. Only 82dB(A) at 100 km per hour (with naked bikes) Outer Shell The outer shell of the Schuberth C3 Pro is offered in two helmet shell sizes and combines an aerodynamically optimal shape with excellent protection. It is manufactured using Schuberth's typical compression molding process and thus permits great stability and a low weight. Shell material S.T.R.O.N.G. fiber Helmet shell technology from SCHUBERTH permits low weight Glass fiber with a special resin added is compressed in a vacuum at high pressure to form a helmet shell which is exceptionally sturdy Perfected aerodynamics for higher speeds Upward lift 0! Directionally stable No oscillatory tendency No buffeting Spoiler integrated into the helmet shell SRC-System Ready The C3 Pro is by default equipped to accommodate the SCHUBERTH SRC-System C3 Pro (sold separately). To guarantee ideal radio reception for you, the C3 Pro is already equipped with two integrated antennas to boost reception and a Bluetooth connection. Optimum reception at all times Bluetooth antenna for wireless mobile, GPS and intercom connections to other SRC-System owners FM and Bluetooth antennas integrated into the helmet for optimum reception EPS The helmet shell of special EPS foam is modular in design to ensure optimal shock absorption. This complex segmentation guarantees enhanced force absorption and distribution and maximum safety. Made of specially optimized EPS foam Complex multizone foaming allows optimal shock absorption Inner Lining A special inner lining of the C3 Pro which was developed according to the innovative Comfort Fit concept ensures that the helmet fits comfortably and securely in all situations. The combination of carefully selected COOLMAX and Thermocool materials and the additional use of Interpower coatings also make the inner lining a highly-effective moisture removal and cooling system. COOLMAX pad system, completely removable and washable (hand wash, 30C) Optimized fit Variable for effective ventilation Adjustable for summer/winter Allergen-free Antibacterial Removable comfort cheek pads and head band pads Ventilation The C3 Pro is equipped with a further development of the proven C3 ventilation system. Thanks to the new design of the ventilation elements, the supply of fresh air is increased by up to 60. The combination of multipath channels in the EPS foam shell and the head/chin/mouth ventilation ensure that fresh air is distributed effectively over the entire head area. A.R.O.S. and Neck Strap The Anti-Roll-Off System (A.R.O.S.) especially developed by SCHUBERTH is provided as a safety feature in every SCHUBERTH motorcycle helmet. It ensures that the chinstrap is closed and correctly adjusted The helmet cannot pivot off the head from behind The risk of contact between the chin section of the helmet and the chin or throat of the rider is minimized due to the small angle of tilt The consequences of the helmet coming into contact with the chest as the result of an accident are reduced Precise setting of the chinstrap length through adjustment on both sides Micro-lock ratchet lock Face Shield The EasyChange visor mechanism makes changing visors extremely quick and simple without use of tools. City position offers maximum ventilation while traveling at slower speeds Pinlock visor prevents shield from fogging DOT and ECE certified

This helmet prints as a premium product with accents on quiet, comfort, light weight and build quality. It delivers on all fronts.
I came to this helmet from the Shoei Multitec, so the step up in features and build quality was clear but as you would expect for a helmet that is about twice the cost. It is significantly quieter, lighter and smaller, but perhaps part of the reduction in noise is that this helmet does not flow air as much as does the Shoei.
Sizewise, I took a medium in the Shuberth vs. a small in the Shoei, so my experience of this model is that it runs small as compared to Shoei.
Comfort is excellent, but for me the ratchet lock is not as comfortable as the d-ring fastener on the Shoei. It has a hard edge to it that though while not painful is noticeable.
The visor opens and closes much more smoothly and cleanly than does the Shoei. The faceplate is significantly more difficult to close and fasten than the Shoei however, probably because the faceplate is clearly designed with much tighter tolerances.
All in all, a premium helmet at a premium price.

Airhawk Seat Pad The last mile feels like the first, thanks to AIRHAWK's exclusive Shape Fitting Technology.

And it's fully customizable and portable - use it on any bike for any rider. The neoprene AIRHAWK's stretchy material has a much more substantial and luxurious feel, especially at the end of a long day in the saddle. Features The proof is in the ROHO DRY FLOATATION technology, which has effectively assisted in the healing and prevention of pressure sores in wheelchair and long-term care patients for over 30 years Inner bladder is made of neoprene The air-filled Airhawk cushion n custom fits your shape and redistributes pressure that causes numbness and discomfort when you ride In addition, your motorcycle cushion will reduce vibration and assist in absorbing shock 2-year manufacturer's warranty on cover Great for 200-1000 mile days Available in 3 sizes Small - 18 Deep x 12 Wide Sport Touring Dual Sport Standards Non-Touring-Harleys Medium - 14 Deep x 14 Wide Big Cruisers Sport Touring Standards Non-Touring-Harleys Harleys Large - 18 Deep x 14.5 Wide Big Cruisers Large Touring

This product is not cheap for what it is, but it did the job for me. I have arthritis developing in my hip from a skiing injury when I was 20, and I've tried two different seats on my bike but both leave me in significant pain after only 60-90 minutes of riding. The Airhawk extended my pain free riding several hours, which is awesome.
It's true what they say, don't overinflate it. A little goes a long way.

I bought this to replace my crashed-in Shoei Qwest. I've never owned a modular before so I wanted to try one out. The latching mechanism is ridiculously easy to operate, as smooth as silk with virtually no effort needed to lift or drop. Having a modular helmet makes it easy to maneuver the bike at low speeds in parking areas and to put your gear on and take it off without removing your helmet, a bigger convenience than I anticipated.
One significant difference between the Multitec and my Qwest is that the back latch of my Scala headset would not slide between the shell of the helmet and the lining, so I had to use the adhesive pad. Also, because of the latching mechanism I had to mount the headset further back. And as with all Shoei helmets, since only the cheeckpads are removeable, the wires can't be fully routed underneath the lining so you are going to feel them when you put the helmet on. Finally, I believe that having the wires get stressed by being loose inside the helmet contributed to the early failure of one of the earpieces while in my Qwest.
The helmet's noise profile isn't louder than the Qwest, but it is different. Wind noise is a little higher pitched in the Multitec than the Qwest, but not annoyingly so.
Overall, a highly recommended helmet, with Shoei quality and durability. By the way, I sent my Qwest back to Shoei for a free post-crash inspection, and it passed inspection so it's still a safe helmet to use. When I think of those who will buy a new helmet after dropping it in their garage, that kind of customer service has big value. You pay a little more for Shoei, but it's worth it.
Yes, I recommend this product.

This jacket is not cheap. Let's get that out of the way, because in most every other way it simply excels. Superbly comfortable, great venting options, great pocket space. It looks great, and I get complimented on it all the time.
It performed fine without the liner in light rain. Fairly wide comfort range; I would say from the 40s up to the upper 60s with the liner in, and well into the mid 90s with the liner out and all the vents open. Beyond that, pretty much no jacket will keep you from getting really hot.
I recently crash-tested this bike when I low-sided on a road shoulder. Fell into rocks and dirt, had one very small rip on a seam and some punctures in the clear plastic shield over the "technical pocket" so it's no longer waterproof. Some of the reflective banding was scuffed off as well. All said though, the jacket still looks really good and should be 99.5% of its original protectivity.
Would not hesitate to buy this jacket again. Not for a moment.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I wear a 34/29 pant, and to my amazement the leg length turned out to be just about perfect right out of the box--which is great, because I'm not sure how you would go about altering a motorcycle pant.
Pros: Amazingly comfortable fit right out of the box, protection feels solid, materials and workmanship are really great.
Cons: When in my riding position on my Multistrada, no appreciable airflow makes it through the vents. I feel plenty when I'm standing off the bike, so apparently the combination of my leg angle and the way air flows around the fairing and across my leg means that the vent doesn't get much airflow to pass up my leg. I'll see how much of a pain this becomes in really hot weather.
Caveat: I have not tested this pant with the liner in or in rainy conditions.
Yes, I recommend this product.
