Good Value Jacket
August 24, 2011
"I got this jacket in a the white/black version (not pictured). It looks good! Fits great (true to size chart) and is easy to pick out in a crowd. The shoulder, elbow, and back padding seems to be good quality. I might eventually replace the back padding with a better pad.
I love the zip out liner. There are enough pockets to hold the essentials. (one interior, one small pocket I hold my key in when not riding, and two "normal" pockets that I keep my cellphone and wallet in)
After riding with it for a season, my only complaints are: it is not waterproof/resistant at all and it has gotten dirty. (I supposed that is what I get for wearing a white jacket though!) On wet days, I arrive at my destination rather damp and whatever is in my pockets is wet.
Overall this jacket is great and I have already recommended it to friends who love it too!"

Constructed with a side zipper and hook-and-loop closure make the Alpinestars S-MX 2 boots easy to take on and off. For maximum durability while riding the Alpinestars S-MX 2 boots have a heel guard detail and a replaceable TPY toe sliders. Note: White is vented version.
"After a almost a season of riding with them, these boots are still holding up great.
My only complaints are that on warm (I live in Alaska and it only gets up to about 70) days, my feet get very hot. Especially if I get off the bike and walk around at all. Also, when it is raining, the moisture tends to seep in through the vents. This leads me to think the vents are more or less useless on them. Had I known this I might have gotten the waterproof version.
They run large. I ordered a size down and they fit pretty well. I probably would have at least tried going down another size if they had my size in stock at the time I purchased them.
They break in fast and seem to offer good support and protection for a low cut boot. I personally think they look pretty good. They are a clean and simple style.
Overall, I am pleased with my purchase."

Scorpion EXO-700 Helmet - Engine
Scorpion has been making quality motorcycle helmets for years and have earned a reputation for their quality, comfort, and safety features. The EXO-700 exemplifies all of these. With a fiberglass/Kevlar matrix shell construction the Scorpion EXO-700 was built for optimum safety and energy dispersion. A quiet, aero-tuned design gives the Scorpion EXO-700 maximum performance and comfort during aggressive riding. Scorpion gives the EXO-700 an EPS-lined chin bar, further maximizing protection. A SpeedShift quick-change shield system (patent pending) makes it easy to change the helmet's face shield with the tool-less system. An optically correct EverClear anti-fog face shield is included on the Scorpion EXO-700 giving it clear visibility. To keep your head cool and your helmet feeling new, the Scorpion EXO-700 is constructed with a KwikWick moisture wicking liner and cheek pads that are breathable, easily removable, and washable to easily maintain. For premium ventilation the Scorpion EXO-700 features an adjustable and indexed front and rear vents with aero-tuned rear spoiler, which reduces lift, and creates a vacuum to maximize air flow through the helmet. To maximize fog-free performance, the Scorpion EXO-700 helmet features built in breath deflector. To give your Scorpion EXO-700 helmet a unique look, custom liners are available in wild patterns and hot colors. Scorpion EXO-700 helmets are D.O.T. and Snell certified for optimum safety.
Sizing - Fit true to size?:
Good Looking Helmet
August 24, 2011
"I just got my Scorpion Engine helmet and have ridden with it for a few weeks now. It fits around my head great; the sizing chart seems accurate. There are a few things that I am not 100% thrilled about. The padding feels weird around me ears sometimes (but not all of the time) and the cheek pads are very very snug. (I have a narrowish face) However, it is still quite comfortable.
The design on it is awesome! I love the motorcycle parts in the background. Really a sharp helmet! I bought it on sale, but would probably be wiling to pay full price for it."
Leather and textile construction. Waterproof and breathable Drystar membrane. Thinsulate liner for added warmth. Internal foam inserts on top of the hand and wrist cuff for impact protection. Clarino and leather palm reinforcements with internal foam inserts. Dual wrist closures. Embroidered logos.
"I got these as my wet/colder weather riding gloves. I have been using Shift Fury gloves for my warmer weather riding. These gloves are significantly more bulky than my other gloves. However, I still feel like I have a good grip on all of the controls. My hands tend to get cold easily, but they do a great job of keeping my hands warm in 40-50 degree weather. I have not used them in wet weather or in anything colder yet.
They look great and appear to be well made and durable. However, only time will tell.
Overall, I am thrilled with my choice and am recommending these to all my friends looking for a reasonably priced, cold/wet weather glove."
