These are my go-to gloves for 95% of all riding. 3 season easy. Super comfortable and suppl but with hard shell protections under the leather. Discrete, super comfortable and I just received my second pair (others lasted 5 yrs & only now starting to crack some of the palm leather.
I wear an XL in most gloves but an XXL in these.

I ride 98% road on a 14 GSW and all the reviews about this tire are well founded. Both wet and dry these tires will offer more grip than you're used to having at big lean angles and you'll embarrass a lot of the super sport bike pilots. I dont commute - just ride twisty roads at weekends. At 5,200 miles the front is looking good - about 1/4 - 1/2 worn but still has the original profile and no cupping. The rear cupps up easily and is on the side wear marks now (but cupping never given any issue). Probably another 1,000 miles on the center if you were cruising/commuting. Long time since I've not had to buy a front and rear together. Excellent tire! Gravel roads... well take it very easy as these are a road tire and it's slippery - particularly in the front.

Great quality product. Works as described with plenty of grip/friction btw Snake Skin and pants. If they are not leathers/tighter pants, then that grip isn't as effective as I'd like it to be (I use BMW Rallye 3 suit). The cut is designed more for standing than sitting - sitting there is little contact between my thighs/knees and the grip position on the tank (and just under tank).
Overall it's a good product. Would be great on a sports bike.

I was getting splitting headaches if I wore my C3 more than 30 mins. I tried compressing the padding a little around the trmple area but no difference. This was a last resort before selling the helmet.
It worked. No more headaches. Excellent!

Schuberth visors aren't cheap. Neither are their helmets - but if they fit and you can afford them, you'll love them. I've always had Arai or Shoei - now I'm a convert.
Visors are either clear, light smoke or dark smoke. I returned dark smoke. Looked great but too dark for a range of uses I need. Dark is ok for very sunny but too dark if caught in the night or heavy rain. The light tint is very light, but sufficient just to take off the glare of the sun if not riding directly into it - then use the internal visor.
Have used at night and in the rain (dark cloud) and very little difference between this and the clear.
Happy it is just sufficiently dark enough when closed to look cool on helmet.
No noticeable distortion and pinlock system works a treat as always. These visors are lightweight.
Recommend this product.

I don't like cuff gloves. Been using Rev'it FLY and some Alpine Stars for years. Dainese always felt too tight or short in fingers - even larger sizes.
The Rev'it & AS's are both comfortable and offer lots of throttle grip feel, but these give good feel and feel much more substantial & robust. I can't wear thick gloves where I cant feel the throttle rubber in my hand well.
I'm usually XXL in most brands and this time Dainese (I normally need to go up a size in Dainese gear).
Good looking gloves, good protection (including outside wrist bone), warmer glove in cold weather and feel soft from day 1.
Definitely a thumbs up on this glove.

I really wanted his helmet and did a lot of research. I have a neck injury and wanted a lighter helmet than my RF1100. I wanted a modular also but most modular are even heavier.
The good:
- So light for a helmet, let alone a modular
- Photochromatic lens
- Looks - main carbon part of helmet looks beautiful.
- Arrived in 3 days from order - awesome. Return so easy.
- Fit - Use the measure chart for Lazer -- not what you wear now (I'm a Small Shoei. Everyone says go up. Ordered a Medium but I needed a Small)
The bad (for me)
- The plastic modular section felt flimsy and flexy on the hinges
- Thinner padding than Shoei - fit not as comfortable
- Carbon transfers noise. Tap the side and it sounds amplified in the helmet (had the ear pads in). A tinny sound.
- $$$ to replace the photoochromatic lens if scratched
- Opening button is inside chin bar and more awkward with gloves on
- Will have to order visors from Revzilla - only distributer of Lazer
I took it to a shop and did a direct comparison (not riding) with a Schuberth C3 (not the new pro) - also stocked at Revzilla. The Schuberth modular section feels very solid in comparison and easier to open the latch (front of chin bar). It was quieter and although not a featherweight, felt lighter on my head than the RF1100. I needed a helmet asap and couldnt wait for another to ship from Revzilla. Got the C3 for comparable price to the Lazer.
I really did want it but the reality for me wasnt as good as the theory.
On road I'm very happy with the C3.
