Shark Skwal Instinct Helmet Light up the night. Unless your headlight is approaching the 12 o'clock mark, your helmet is your highest and most prominent point. The Shark SKWAL Helmet features integrated LED accents on the front and rear vents that shouts your presence to the world. A hidden switch under the clutch-side rim of the helmet allows you to toggle between continuous light, pulsing and off -sometimes you just need to disappear. The SKWAL is developed for high speed stability, ventilation and acoustics. The aerodynamics are born from Shark's racing involvement and complex fluid dynamics simulations. An Autoseal shield system keeps the visor pressed firmly against the helmet to block out distractions like wind and the elements while a drop down internal sun shield keeps the sun at bay. A MaxVision Pinlock insert is a rider's best defense against shield fogging. The interior of the helmet features a micro-stranded bamboo fiber that boasts natural moisture-wicking and anti-microbial properties. In addition to being ultra plush to the touch, the washable interior is also hypoallergenic. The Shark SKWAL is a complete package that keeps you focused on the road ahead and keeps the outside world focused on you. Features: Pinlock MaxVision insert lens included D-Ring chin strap closure Quick release face shield system Integrated drop down sun shield Thermoplastic shell Autoseal shield system for sound and weatherproofing Comfortable bamboo fiber interior - bamboo is naturally hypoallergenic, moisture-wicking and antibacterial Easy Fit glasses system provides optimal comfort for riders wearing glasses LED illumination accents on front and rear of helmet On/off push button switch hidden on underside of neck roll Rechargeable lithium battery connects via USB port hidden in neck roll Charging cable included 5 hour LED run time in continuous mode, 10 hours in pulse mode Chin curtain included ECE 22.05 and DOT approved Note: LED system may not arrive charged. Use the included USB cable to connect the helmet to a USB port on a computer or cell phone charger. The battery will reach a full charge in under 5 hours.

I bought the Shark Skwal because I light the idea of more visibility at night and I have never owed a Shark helmet so I thought I'd give them a shot. I ride in the morning and at night due the the blistering heat in the south during the summer. The LEDs are a great addition. They really get people's attention. This helmet is tight, but a great fit for me. I am an intermediate to long oval. For the price point, it has a lot of bang for the buck. Drop down sun visor (that actually covers your eyes), chin curtain, pin lock insert and LEDs are big benefits. The helmet is relatively quiet, but you do sacrifice airflow for that. Although, the air flow isn't bad. I could feel the air coming in onto my head. At full tuck you get a slight whistle with the top vent open, but none with it closed. With earplugs or buds in, you can't even hear it. The Instinct graphic is just plain sick so pick one up and see for yourself. You won't regret it.

I bought these for my dad and I to use on our trip to Barber Motorsports Park in Alabama. With the stops, it was about an 8 hour ride. The sound was great for not being earbuds. Loud enough up to around 80 and after that the wind noise kind of took over. I could still use the comms, but the music was hard to hear. Under 80, these were heaven! I would stream music from my phone and when we wanted to talk, just click the jog dial. Click it again and BAM!...music comes back. Sheer awesomeness! The battery life is all of 8 hours. I can definitely attest to that! Install was too simple!

I was looking for a tail bag that I could use for day trips that wouldn't look like a tumor on my bike. This one did the trick! It has plenty of storage for a day trip. It has a removable partition so I can fit even more. The top has a mesh zipper pocket, which is big enough to fit your essentials (tire kit, gum, sunglasses, flashlight, etc). There is only drawback, hence the 4 star rating. It doesn't expand at the top of the bag, it does so from the bottom, which is awkward. I have had many compliments on my tail bag. People have said it looks like it came with my bike. Low profile and rigid. Two thumbs up!

First off, this is a narrow shoe. If you have wide feet, do not buy this shoe. With that said, they fit my feet and I could not be happier. They vent very well and are comfortable for all day riding/walking around. They feel very secure on my feet while riding. I've had mine for a year and have no complaints.

I purchased the Joe Rocket RS-2 Rainsuit just in case I was caught in a downpour. Well, I was traveling back from Austin, TX after the MotoGP and BAM!! The god of thunder came a callin! I pulled over and whipped out my newly purchased rain suit, donned it it a matter of seconds and was back on my bike dry and happy! It worked great! I had no issues with it at all. It has a zipper on the back for air, but there are no front vents so there isn't much airflow. It lets the heat escape and that's enough for me. I would definitely recommend this suit to anyone who just needs a backup for those iffy times.

Why We Ride: A Documentary Film DVD Everyone has a reason. It's a story about the journey, not the destination. Why We Ride is a story about who we are. Individuals with a desire to dream, discover and explore. Seeking a life outside our daily confinements and sharing those moments together. Motorcycles represent the milestones of our lives. From a kids dream come true, to a retirees return to freedom. From a family riding together on the sand dunes, to hundreds of choppers carving through the canyons, the bond is the same. Its about the passion of the riders and the soul of their machines. Your senses will heighten as the world rushes in, your heart will beat to the pulse of the engine, your mind will race and set you free. Once you let a motorcycle into your life, it will change you forever. Specifications: Rated PG 89 minutes Region 1 Dolby, NTSC, Widescreen

Michelin Pilot Road 3 Rear Tires Building on the tremendous reputation Michelin has built over the years, the Michelin Pilot Road 3 Tire is the successor to the award winning Pilot Road 2. With the Michelin Pilot Road 3 Motorcycle Tire you are really getting 2 tires in 1, by integrating a soft rubber compound on the tread shoulders with a wear-resistant compound down the middle, Michelin gives you the best of both worlds. The Pilot Road 3 is a dual compound sport-touring radial tire. Revolutionary X-Sipes technology maximizes wet traction Michelins newest technology delivers all-weather performance without compromising tread life or handling Patented innovation resulting from years of research and development Sipes increase the tread's drainage capacity Sipes generate pressure at the edges of the sipe blade, which helps to break through water film Two compound technology combines tread life and cornering grip 2CT incorporated into all tire sizes, front and rear Wider soft-compound shoulders on the front tire, compared to its predecessor High performance and environmentally sound 100 non-aromatic-oil rubber compound Note: Sizes denoted by B are designed specifically for loaded sport touring bikes, or for riding two-up.

I purchased a set of Pilot Road 3s to replace my stock Bridgestone BT 021s. The front tire, after only 5500 miles, was cupping bad and was compromising my safety. I received the new set of Michelins and voila! No more issues! These tires warm up quickly and provide fantastic grip, even in the rain. If you are in the market for sport touring tires, you can't go wrong with a set of Pilot Road 3s!

When I purchased the Tarmac 2's, I was replacing the Sidi New York Shoes because the shift pad was tiny and I wore a hole in the top. As soon as I put these on my feet I knew they were the ones for me! Large shift pad & very ventilated! One item I must mention is the sizing. I have a narrow foot so these are great for me, but if you have wide feet order a size up. The actual sizing is spot on. I've put quite a few miles on these and they seem to be holding up very well. They are so comfortable, I even wear them to work all day.

I purchased this helmet because it received decent reviews and has sick graphics. It's a good helmet, but they could beef up the liner a little. It's comfortable but the cheek pads have too much give in them and makes the helmet feel a little big. The air flow is great. Don't get me wrong, for the price it's a great helmet. I still like my Icon and Joe Rocket as far as all day riding, but if your just tooling around town or going to the local bike night...this is the helmet line for you.
