Wolfman Beta Plus Rear Bag Wolfman describes them as a duffel bag with legs -- a simple way to add capacity without requiring side racks. Beta Bags hug the bike via the seat channel, yet stay clear of the exhaust (on most bikes). The bags solidly mount by three quick release straps, one around the rear of the bike, the front each to a passenger peg/bracket or sub-frame. A full access Crescent top zipper opening for full access to the contents. Wolfman added Non-skid/non-scratch material to the bottom (the same material they use on their Tank Tail Bags.) Silver interior accents for better interior visibility plus new and improved raincovers. Wolfman kept the ever so useful side pockets, carry handle, duffel mounts and the 4 outside compression straps, and the ultra-durable Ballistic Fabric Body. Dimensions Seat Overhang 5 Overall Width 29 Height (from top of seat) 9 1/2 Length 11 Seat Channel Opening - Top 10 Seat Channel Opening - Bottom 14 Capacity 45 Liters, 2750 cu.in. Note Additional contents and stuff sacks pictured sold separately.

This soft bag fit my 990R Adventure perfectly.
The cut / shape of the bag straddled the seat so well it seemed to be made specifically for the bike.
It will be great for additional gear on an extended trip. It is cavernous yet contents are easy to find once inside due to the large zippered opening.
If your an Adventure rider wanting to keep things light by using soft luggage, this is a great bag at a great value.

My Latitude jacket is my new favorite when I open the closet to pick a coat for the days ride. It is very well constructed as is all Klim products. Double stitching everywhere. The sizing and fit is in my opinion perfect. I took out the Klim armor, and about 90% of the time I ride with the Forcefield Extreme Adventure armor under the coat, including the forearm/elbow protection and it fits great. However my thoughts are when cold temps come this fall I'll need to re-install the stock armor so I can add my insulating layers.
Some have complained about the "High" collar. I personally like the way it fits around the neck and closes in under the helmet. I think Klim did a good thing in it's collar design.
If the weather is warm (90 F +) the jacket is warm when sitting in traffic. This is to be expected. After all it is a heavy coat.
I rode thru a few afternoon showers, not a torrential down pour mind you and stayed perfectly dry. I need some major rain to really test the weatherproof properties of this jacket.
I love everything about the Latitude jacket

I spent quite awhile looking at different upper body armor. The Forcefield gear looked good but the price point seemed high.
I kept looking and trying on other types at my local motorcycle shop. The Mesh shirt type seemed like a hassle to put on and I worried if it would stay in place during a get-off. Then there was the individual plastic pad type. By the time I bought all the parts to complete a full upper body set it was just about the same costs as the Forcefield.
So I made the decision to try the Forcefield EHA. I figured if I didn't like it I could send it back.
The harness came 3 days after ordering and when I first tried it on I wasn't sure if I liked it or not. I continued to wear it, and as the armor began to "break-in" it felt better and better with every ride.
I will say if you want a piece of armor that has great ventilation look elsewhere. This gear is warm and on a hot day you will sweat under the vest. If you have a european fitting jacket you may have some trouble fitting the jacket over the armor. My Firstgear TPG Rainier fits but not so well with an insulating layer on top of the armor.
This gear is very flexible and it stays in place. It takes only a minute or so to put on and it moves with you when your on the bike.
After a few days of wearing it, and getting used to the armor I feel unsafe if I don't have it on when riding. Kind'a like driving without a seat belt or not wearing your helmet.
This body protection makes it easy to WATGATT. (wear all the gear all the time). After riding with it for a month it's barely noticeable now when I have it on.
As far as the price point,,, This gear is worth every penny. I'm completely satisfied.

You have extra confidence knowing that the Mojave Pant is built with standard Klim features like removable hip and knee pads, TNP heat and abrasion resistant leather panels on the inner legs, and 840 denier Cordura fabric for strength. Lead the way as the coolest rider on the hottest rides with the Mojave Pant.

The Klim Mojave is exactly the piece of clothing I was looking for. I ride in all temperature ranges and my Dakars were just to hot for desert riding. I like Klim quality and fit so I gave the Mojave's a try and was not disappointed. A loose cut in the thigh and seat make for very comfortable riding. Either sitting or standing the pants don't constrict movement.
These pants are perfect for warm weather riding. I bought a 34 and wear a 35 in jean size and the fit is good as long as I don't want to add an insulating layer under them.
These are a great addition to anyones riding gear closet.

After looking at various crash bars I finally made the decision to purchase the AltRider bars. They installed very easy, and fit perfectly. The quality of these bars are second to none. When I looked at them on other V-Stroms it appeared they didn't go high enough up the bike for the best protection.
After an accidental drop (on pavement) I picked the biked up and not a single scratch to the tank or side panel. These things worked great. They likely paid for themselves with just that one mishap.
I highly recommend these bars. When considering the quality, the strength, and great design, I think they are a good value for the money.
