Denali DM Micro LED Driving Light Kit The ultra compact size of the DM light is ideal for street bikes where you want to maintain a clean inconspicuous look without sacrificing brightness. The DM is also ideal for daytime visibility as the smaller optic intensifies the brightness of the light when looking at the light from the front. Consuming only 5 watts of power per lamp, the Denali DM lights throw a blazing beam of light 240 feet down the road in front of you. Thats 85 feet further than your typical motorcycle high beam. All Denali LED lights are housed in a rugged waterproof aluminum housing (submersible up to 3 meters underwater). These LEDs boast an average life span of 50,000 hours thats 6 years without ever being shut off. Yes, Denali went overboard. Its what they do. Features Pod Size 1.7 round x 2.4 long Beam distance of 240ft Power draw of 5 watts/.75 amp per lamp Single intensity Beam Angle 10 and 25 Waterproof IP-68 443 lumens Includes 2x Micro LED light pods Wiring Harness with Relay and Lighted Switch 2 x spot driving beam lenses (10 degree beam pattern) 2 x flood beam lenses (25 degree beam pattern) 2x M8 (8mm) mounting brackets Installation instructions Allen wrench Note Mounting kit sold separately.

These LEDs were very simple to hook up, and they're amazingly bright. I have no doubt these Denali LEDs will increase my visibility during the day [so traffic sees me] and increase my light output at night [so I see varmints]. They are small and lightweight, and look good mounted beneath the mirrors of my Yamaha FJR. They come with a second set of 25° lenses if you want to replace the 10° lenses already in the lights. I, however, could not pry out the 10° lenses without risking apparent damage, so I left the 10° lens in there. The wiring schematics/instructions are easy to follow. My only complaint, and it's minor, is that there is almost too much wiring [presumable for bikes with the battery positioned underneath the seat] and I had trouble finding enough spare room behind the dash cluster of my bike to stash the extra lengths of wiring. Nevertheless, these are great lights, and they seem durable and well-made. I recommend these auxiliary lights. I hope this review helps you.

Shoei Qwest Overt Helmet The Shoei Qwest Motorcycle Helmet was built with a focus on minimizing helmet weight, optimizing fit for comfort and protection and lowering noise levels to bring a new level of comfort to touring helmets. Featuring a slightly round oval internal shape, the Qwest helmet is manufactured with 4 individual shell sizes to keep the helmet as low-profile as possible. The smaller the helmet shell, the lighter the helmet weight. The Shoei Qwest Helmet also uses the Shoei's CW-1 visor technology with the Q.R.S.A system. This system guarantees a tight seal at the faceshield by pulling the shield back to contact the opening seal evenly. The Qwest also touts an extra-wide viewport for additional peripheral vision so you can more easily take in the world around you. Aerodynamic Shell Design Aerodynamic properties are maximized through extensive wind tunnel and feedback from professional riders Dual-Layer EPS liner enhances impact absorption and ventilation Four shell and six EPS liner sizes increase fit options that help to comfortably fit most head sizes Molded air spoiler reduces drag and lift as well as diminishes weight pressure on the neck while riding at high speeds Ventilation System Upper Air Intake Vent is positioned to maximize air volume into the helmet interior Large upper intake vent positioned to maximize performance in high wind conditions Easy to operate large lower intake vent Lower air intake/defroster vent reduces shield fogging and increases ventilation Rear/neck outlets allow for effective air exhaust Breath guard and chin curtain are included Lightweight Advanced Integrated Matrix Plus (AIM+) High performance fiber materials are combined with extremely elastic organic fibers to create a shell structure that is ultra lightweight, rigid and resilient Interior 3D center pad and multi-layered, polyurethane foam cheek pads Cheek pads are replaceable or removable for maintenance Eyeglass-compatible interior Standard chin strap clip neatly secures chin strap CW-1 Shield and Q.R.S.A. System Q.R.S.A. (Quick-Release Self-Adjusting) base plate allows for tool-less shield removal and installation Spring-loaded base plate pulls the shield back to contact the window beading evenly and ensures a proper seal Scratch-resistant coating 99.9 protection from harmful UV A and B rays Optional, CWF-1 two-dimensional Pinlock equipped racing shields with tear-off posts are available (sold separately) Optional, CW-1 Pinlock prepared shields are available to accommodate Pinlock Fog Free Inserts (sold separately) The CW-1, three-dimensionally curved shield is both wider and taller than the CX-1V it replaces A pre-set lever can easily lock the shield in place to prevent the shield from opening unexpectedly, as well as prop the shield open to increase airflow Additional Features Construction AIM+ (Advanced Integrated Matrix Plus Multi Fiber) Weight 3.644 lbs / 1,653 grams (approx, for Size Medium) Standards Snell-M2010, DOT Note Due to manufacturer restrictions, Shoei products can only be shipped to addresses within the United States

I previously had a Shoei Qwest in matte black, and when I went looking for another helmet, I just couldn't find a better helmet, knowing what I know now. And with the Overt currently on closeout, it couldn't pass it up. As a replacement, I also wanted a high visibility helmet, and the Overt color scheme perfectly matches my hi-viz Klim Badlands Pro jacket. The yellow, black, and silver look great. The fit and finish of the helmet are fantastic; Shoei builds a very, very good helmet. After adding a Pinlock shield and lens, I'm ready to go in any weather. This is a quiet helmet, but you sacrifice some venting to achieve that reduction in sound, so this helmet is fairly hot in the summer. In the cold, I think you'd need the Pinlock to prevent fogging since, as I've noted, there's not a great deal of venting to keep the shield clear in cold weather. Nevertheless, I've ridden up to 115° in this helmet and so long as you're moving to get some venting, your brain won't bake. And I've ridden down to 0° with the Pinlock system and never had the lens fog up. I highly recommend this helmet. I hope this review helps you.

There's not much you can say about a duffel bag: it holds stuff. That about sums it up. The Wolfman Expedition is also waterproof. The exterior construction seems durable. The D-rings and connectors seem like they are attached securely, and offer several methods of attaching this duffel to your bike. I would think that this duffel would fit just about any bike, one way or another. I purchased the large and it will hold quite a lot of gear: tent, sleeping bag, small cooler, clothes, tool kit, spare helmet, extra footwear, kitchen sink, whatever other odds and ends you want to toss in. I hope this review helps you.

I purchased the Givi V47 topcase after having the E55 Maxia for a couple years and needing a replacement topcase for my new FJR. I preferred the lines and styling of the V47. Compared to the Maxia, the V47 is definitely not as large, but it will still hold quite a lot of kit. I can verify that it will hold two large helmets with no problem. The construction and quality of the V47 is excellent, and I wouldn't hesitate for a second to buy any Givi product again.

These Gerbings gloves are fantastic!!! The liner is amazingly plush. Once plugged in, you begin to feel heat within a few seconds. Even without heat, I have no doubt that these gloves will keep your hands very warm. I particular like the added protection The only downside is that that electrical plug-in do not have a small zippered pocket for storage, like the T5 gloves. Nevertheless, I love these gloves.

First, the fit is dead-on: if you wear 36" khakis or jeans, order 36" Alpinestars. The inseam is plenty long for me, and I'm 6'4". The knee armor isn't so much armor as it is a thick pad, but it's very comfortable and apparently CE-certified. The hip pads are similar but don't offer the same protection, IMHO; these hip pads are just to lessen the impact if you tumble. The denim fabric is darker than I'd imagined, but that's okay. They look like "dress jeans." The stitching is very good. Everything about the construction of these Kevlar lined jeans looks great. If I wanted absolute protection, I'd be wearing a full leather racing suit, but I don't want to do that when it's 105° with 99% humidity. So these jeans are a compromise, but I have no doubts they will offer far more protection that regular denim jeans if I ever go down at speed.

I purchased the Pinlock shield and Pinlock lens at the same time for my Shoei Qwest. Both products were exactly as described, and work as intended; that is, they reduce fogging during cold/wet weather. I would say that the Pinlock lens eliminates 95% of fogging, but not all. Which is okay. The new shield and lens work. Period.
While riding at night, I noticed a slight amount of blur/reflection, but not enough to cause distractions or impair your vision.
Overall, a great product! For cold weather riders, I would definitely recommend this product.

This Gerbing's heated jacket liner is amazing. At 15° Fahrenheit this morning, I had the liner on it's lowest setting and I was more than warm enough. I have no doubt that I could ride down to negative temperatures with this liner and be perfectly comfortable. Paired with the dual temp controller and the Gerbing's T5 gloves, my winter morning commute is now comfortable.
Fit and finish seem excellent. The liner is even nice enough to wear as a light jacket off the bike. Everything is well-thought-out on this liner.
For sizing, I'm 6'3" and 210 lbs with a 44" chest, and I went with the Large/Extra Long, and the fit is very good.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I am very impressed with these gloves. They are actually more robust than I'd anticipated, and I can wear them down to 40 degrees Fahrenheit without plugging them in. The sizing seems spot-on. The lining is very comfortable. Articulation is very good. Further, I don't feel any of the heating elements inside the gloves. Once connected to the bike, these gloves heat up very quickly. I started feeling heat within a few seconds.
My only complaint is the protection. There is no hard armor on these gloves. The palms and top of the fingers have small padded areas, but there is no knuckle protection.
These gloves seem well-made and I can attest to the fact that they will keep your hands warm down into the single digits.
