I bought this glove under time pressure before a late October ride down the Blue Ridge Parkway. The weather got into the low 40's in the mornings with some light drizzle and the gloves remained nice and dry inside. The were a bit chilly on the coldest mornings but bearable and with heated grips would have been awesome. Touring glove, so only moderate/mid protection with no hard parts. I found them to run small so my normally XL hands fit perfectly in XXL. Good gloves and Gore company keeps its reputation for dry warmth with this moderate temp glove.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I am a new found fan of Teknic. This glove along with my leather pants and jacket from Teknic wrap my 6-1 185 lb frame perfectly to protect without over doing it. The glove gauntlet fits well over the tapered sleeves of my jacket, and the adjustment at the wrist customizes the fit. The protection of the glove is top notch, and the glove fits my long fingers perfectly...something I don't often get. If you have stubby fingers, these may leave you with excess at the tips. Just a great glove.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Same input as my review of the jacket with a few specific things...I find these to be slightly low-waisted with a short zipper that can make getting in to them a little quirky. That said, once on, they are great. I bought suspenders for them but really don't need them. I think that the pants can be described as fitting SLIGHTLY small...I am in a 34 and they fit perfectly, but I usually wear a 33 jean. Also, they are a bit short. At 6-1, I wish they made these in a long. I wear Sidi Adventure boots, so no issue, but if I was in a shorter touring boot, I can see that I might get rain in over the top as the pant leg rides high.
Yes, I recommend this product.

This is a great jacket! I followed the fit guide and video and it fits perfectly. This jacket offers GREAT protection right out of the box and good adjustment to keep it in place. It is Goretex so in a recent three day ride that included at least a half dozen rinse/dry cycles of rain...some torrential, I stayed bone dry at speeds of 45-55 mph. Correction, I got wet the first time because I forgot that I had opened rear ventilation zippers. This jacket has some good vent zips, but as I said, you have to remember to close them ALL in the rain! HA! FYI, the "welded" style zippers keep water out, but are stiff and can not be easily manipulated while riding (ie pit zips). I had to stop, but no big deal. One issue is that the "beard flap" that protects your neck from zipper chafe is not big enough and kept folding back so the zipper irritated my neck. Other than that, all good.
Yes, I recommend this product.

WOW! This is a whole bunch of pant for not much money. I am 6-1, 185lbs, I wear 33 jeans and I got the 34 and it is spot on. Not GP tracksuit tight, but snug enough to keep the protection where it belongs. This marry perfectly with the Teknic jacket 360 zipper to make a functional track day suit. The flex panels facilitate fit well and also provide some airflow. These are non-perf, so don't expect them to flow a great deal, but I found them comfortable during a recent ride down the Blue Ridge Pkwy with temps in the mid 80's and speed circa 45 mph. The knee sliders are spot on but easily removable if you are not into the full GP look at your breakfast stop. LOVE these pants

What a great jacket! The price goes without saying. This jacket has terrific styling and function, and it pairs perfectly with the Teknic pants. Snug in the arms to keep protection in place, and athletic cut with a bit more generous in the shoulders and a waist that can be adjusted so that it is as suitabe with my riding jeans for a sporty ride up the road as it is paired with full zip pants and taken to the track. Lack of speed hump and mild precurve means you won't look like Quasimoto wearing it into the restaurant during a break in the action. I am a tad smaller than 44, and a 44 in this jacket gave me good protection and function while leaving me room to breath. I would buy this jacket again and again.
Yes, I recommend this product.

These are good hot weather socks. They are thin, so if you normally where thick socks then you are going to need to do some adjusting. Great ventilation throughout, particularly in the upper leg and top of the foot. I like the additional padding over the top of the foot where your buckle will pull your heel into the heal counter. Why no "5"? No reason really other than when it is all said and done, they are still just socks...pretty expensive socks. If they go on sale, I will buy another set or two. The ventilate, they wick, the don't seem to hold "stink" through washings like many other tech-fibers.

Want a pair of good working socks that are not over-engineered and over-priced? Here you go. The fit is true to size, the are medium thickness, reinforced with good elastic, supportive, and a great price. Or...you can spend waaaay more for...uhh...socks.

I own several different pairs of boots, all for different types of riding on one of 3 different bikes. This is the most versatile of all. From HD cruiser, to GS1200 or my CFR450X, after a bad wreck in 2010 that damaged my foot and ankle, I wear good boots. That said, this is my most expensive pair by far. Not coincidentally, it is also the best pair. I am a 10-10.5 running shoe with a normal forefoot and slightly narrow heel, medium to high arches. The 44 fit me perfectly. The footbed has decent shape and the buckles at the bridge of my foot have enough adjustment to accommodate my arch height. There are no rough edges around the boot top (my socks always creep down), so nothing chafes or rubs. The construction is top notch and rugged, but even with that and the technical protection it has, this is a beautiful looking boot. There is good rigidity of the upper so as to feel enveloping and protective, but enough flexion to keep it comfy for all-day rides with rest stops that include walking in the boot a bit. The sole has a bit more rigidity than a medium weight hiker. This is the perfect match for my Klim Latitude gear and my GS, but I have also used it for light enduro on the 450. Heck, I might even wear them under my riding jeans with the HD. These boots are awesome!
