I have had numerous Sidi boots and shoes in the past, and was not disappointed with the Astro. The quality is top notch, as always, and I expect them to last a long time. They do seem to run a bit large, and the tongues migrate to the outside of the shoe while I wear them, something I will try to mitigate somehow.
Yes, I recommend this product.

This seat is a HUGE improvement over the stock seat on the F700GS. My butt would be miserable after 45 minutes on that stock torture device. (Why BMW can't put decent seats on their bikes, I don't know.) I just finished a 1000 mile trip over 5 days on the Sargent seat and was comfortable the entire way. It seems to be just the right firmness and allows you room to move around. I am 165 pounds and 5'11".
Yes, I recommend this product.

I always purchase one of these when I buy a Wolfman Explorer Lite. I just wish they would include it with the bag.

Wolfman Explorer Lite Tank Bag Wolfman has been paying attention, riders want a tank bag that has the same curved bottom as the Rainier but not as big. Wolfman is proud to offer the Explorer Lite. This tank bag is 2 shorter than the Explorer. The Explorer Lite fits all the same bikes as the Rainier and more. Especially the KTM 950 Adventure (It nestles between the two gas caps so you do not have to remove the bag to get gas). Features All foam and Ballistic nylon construction Expandable gussett Zippered front pocket Interior zippered mesh pocket and key clip 4 point mounting system Non-slip, non-scratch bottom Reflective side accents and carry handle Dimensions Length 11 Width 8 3/4 Height Front 8 1/4, Expanded 11 1/2 Capacity Closed 13 Liters, 793 cu.in.

This is my third purchase of the Wolfman Explorer Lite, because they just work, fit multiple bikes, are well-made, and are just the right size. I wish the top map pocket were just slightly bigger, but that is not much of an issue for me.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I bought the Sargent seat for a 2012 BMW R1200GS, to replace the much-too-soft stock seat. The Sargent is definitely better and will allow me a couple more hours in the saddle without fidgeting, but it is not as good as a full custom might be. One benefit of the Sargent is that you can keep or sell the original stock seat, unlike some customs that use the stock seat pans.
Yes, I recommend this product.

These Ranger 3 pants replaced a well-worn pair of Ranger 2's. These seem to fit a bit trimmer, though they still fit me well, alone or as an overpant. Olympia always provides a good value.
Yes, I recommend this product.

An excellent helmet for those who want to cut down on noise and have some of the clearest optical face shields available. It will also be a warm helmet on cold days. All features are well-thought out and work. One negative for me is the buckle strap. Though very easy to use, it does push against my adams apple, and is not as comfortable as a D-ring strap might be. I would suggest making this helmet available with a D-ring chin strap.
Yes, I recommend this product.

A german friend recommended these. They did not disappoint. Very good fit and comfortable. Read Held's sizing info and follow it. They fit snug when new and my initial reaction was to get the next larger size. That would have been a mistake. They now fit perfectly. The kangaroo skin palm is very soft, comfortable, and tough. The only reason I did not give them a 5 rating was the price.
Yes, I recommend this product.
