The 5-star rating is for Revzilla getting the tire to me in two days. I only have 50 miles on the Road Attack 2 front tire and it replaced an old Bridgestone with cords showing. All I can really say at this point is that it feels fine and the bike feels stable and planted. I'll update the review once I get more miles on it.
I am happy enough with my choice that I will be adding the matching Road Attack 2 rear tire in the near future,
Yes, I recommend this product.

I have a Samsung S4 Active in a protective case and was looking for a way to mount it on my handlebars for an upcoming trip. This RAM holder did the trick. I used the medium height side arms mounted in a way to leave the side control buttons uncovered. I wasn't able to install the upper arm since it covered the headphone jack.but my phone still rides securely - a good thing for a thumper with knobby tires! Cheap, secure and functional... that's all I can ask for. For reference, I used the diamond ball bracket to attach it to an existing mounting point.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I currently own both the Olympia X-Moto pants and jacket along with the Olympia Ranger 3 pants so I have completely bought into this manufacturer's gear design.
I only had the opportunity to wear the pants once before I sent them off for inseam alterations so most of my experience is related to the design and construction of the matching jacket. Still, I have a very favorable opinion of the pants.
First off, the intelligent deign of the waist to calf zippers allows for easy length alterations (0 - 5"). The only downside is that the quality construction (inner-leg leather panel and ankle Velcro adjuster) make the alterations a bit more involved. My estimate for lopping off 3" is around $50.
The mega vent panel system really works well. There is a significant amount of airflow when only one side of the vent panel is opened - I can immediately tell when a vent is open on a cool morning. I do miss having cargo pockets on the front of each leg but it's a small price to pay for having the venting versatility. The waterproof liner pants are fairly easy to install / remove but would still be a challenge on the side of the road. At least the full length zippers make this a reasonable task.
I'd characterize Olympia as utilizing thoughtful and useful design features in their gear. The liner pants have belt loops, pockets and enough fashion to be used independently of the riding pants. That cuts down on extra packed clothing if the weather turns cold or wet. With the liner installed, the useful temperature range is extended down into the 40's based on my experience. However, I prefer the rainproof Ranger 3 pants for cooler temperatures since I don't have to fuss with zipping up both the liner and the pants.
I have large thighs and calf muscles and find the fit to perfect for use as overpants. At work, I simply have to unzip both legs and step out of the pants while still wearing my boots.
From a protection standpoint, all of the common impact points are reinforced with heavy Cordura material. The adjustable knee armor is another plus. My only complaint is that the hip protection is padding instead of armor. If hip armor was included at the same price, my Bang for the Buck and Protection ratings would have been higher.
Bottom line: The full-length zippers, lighter sand color and vent panels make it easy to wear these pants even when it's warm. They're comfortable while on the bike and stylish enough to draw compliments.
Yes, I recommend this product.

 SAS-TEC Replacement Hip Armor
SAS-TEC Replacement Hip Armor

The closed air cells function by means of progressive absorption the material is soft and flexible in its normal state but a sudden impact will cause the protectors to harden and absorb the impact without transmitting the force to the body.

After surviving a 40 mph low-side with only a hip bruise, adding hip armor to my replacement riding pants was a top priority. This armor fit into the existing pockets of my non-REV'IT pants perfectly.
They add protection without affecting the fit and comfort of the pants. I hope that I don't have to test them but it's cheap insurance against injury if I experience another get-off.
Yes, I recommend this product.

These gloves are a good trade-off between full off-road or track protection and light mesh gloves. I wanted gloves that provide fingertip dexterity but still offer a reasonable level of protection - especially since my last set of gloves got rashed-up in a low side.
Depending on the brand and style of a glove, I take a medium or a large. For these gloves, the medium was way too tight so I returned them and ordered the large. Even the large initially felt a little tight but it only took one ride for the materials to stretch a little and conform to my hands.
I'm happy with my purchase and wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to anyone.
Yes, I recommend this product.

There's nothing sexy or exciting about a Powerlet cord - I expected it to work with my Garmin nuvi GPS and it does. The plug end fits securely in the 12v powerlet outlet on my bike and the PPC-024 adapter fits securely into the GPS while making sure it enters into navigation mode. The 12v - 5v regulator is fairly unobtrusive and the coiled cable works well to keep the cord out of my way while riding. I'm happy with this item and would recommend it to anyone looking to add a mini USB cable to their bike.

 Nolan N-Com Basic Kit 2
Nolan N-Com Basic Kit 2
Nolan N-Com Basic Kit 2 The Basic kit is mono compared to the Basic Kit 2, which is stereo. For basic N-COM communication and audio, each helmet must be equipped with a Basic Kit and an N-Com E-box. Includes earphones, a microphone, and two short wires (that hang from the underside of the helmet, and allow you to plug in various devices). The speakers and microphone are powered by the battery in either a E-Box Intercom 2 Kit or a E-box Bluetooth 2 Kit. The Basic Kit along with an N-COM E-box will permit you to listen to your music player, radar detector, GPS unit, etc., and talk on your cell phone, but you must control volume on the source device and answer the phone by pressing the controls on the phone. For connecting to external audio and communications devices, a Multimedia Wire and/or Cell Phone Wire is needed in addition to the E-Box kit. Installs in minutes without any tools or modifications. Please note Requires Nolan N-COM E-Box Read more in our Nolan N-COM Communication System Buyers Guide

The N-Com Basic Kit 2 delivered as promised. I can plug into my GPS to hear directions or music, and the GPS Bluetooth connects my phone to the helmet speakers and microphone. Unfortunately, the volume of the speakers just isn't quite loud enough to overcome road noise and the fact that I wear ear plugs. Yeah... I could lose the ear plugs and hear the music better, but I value the level of hearing I still have.
Installation wasn't horrible, but the instructions could be a little more clear and the illustrations / pictures could have had better definition. It only took a little bit of head scratching to figure things out and everything went back together without a hitch.
Maybe the system would work better on a bike with a full fairing instead of a naked dual sport. Still, I'm happy with the purchase and Nolan did a good job with the engineering of the product to make sure it fit well within the helmet.
