D,
Got the gear on Monday and Tuesday. Just got home from San Diego tonight and tried everything on. CP pants and jacket are a perfect fit. The boots, I'm not so sure about. Walking around, my heel doesn't slip out of the cup, but I can lift it out pretty easily while standing still and rolling up onto the balls of my feet. What do you think? Is the 44 that much smaller? The Apache has a much stiffer shank than my puma boots, so maybe that is why my heel pulls away from the cup when I stand on the balls of my feet.

Also picking up a pair of those COMET gloves since they look like they would be a great combo with the TURBINE jacket.

The 90 degree temps yesterday finally pushed me over the edge to commit to some new gear for the warm months.

Thanks Dennis

Just got back from a 1000mi weekend... a mix of dirt, twisty back roads and some slab (yuck)... chilly in the mornings very warm (not quite hot) in the afternoons... Cayenne Pro and Comet gloves worked PERFECTLY!

I just put my Turbine jacket / pants through a 1200 mile trip this weekend.... temperatures were from low 70s to 100. Much better airflow than the Cayenne Pro but I still needed to "wet-down" several times because of the humidity at times!

Best Regards,

Shane

Just came back from 1000 mile trip to Death Valley



CAYENNE PRO performed great, I cannot stop raving about how great this combo is.




At times I felt like I was riding on the moon :)

When the boots break in and become softer the sensation of heel lifting will go away. How is the sole length? I think 44's will be a bit small but I can send you a set if you want to choose the best fitting one. Cheers,

Dennis

D,
There is about a quarter inch of space between my toe and the edge of the toe box. So there is some slop in there. They do seem bigger than my other boots (outside sole length). I don't know, I guess it would make me feel better if I could try the 44's to be sure. Thanks.

I will get another set out today then. Once you decide which one fits better, send the remaining pair back to me. Sounds good? Is your bike already fixed?

Thanks.

Tried my TURBINE for the first time today. It was 89F on the way home this afternoon. Pretty comfortable, I'll have to give it a few more tries with my lower Puig screen installed before passing final judgment.

I do think it looks nice, though:

Looking good. Is that your new bike? Is it FZ1? i was always afraid to get one bacause it seems that i would have hard time controlling my right hand.

That's Cylon, my FZ6. First bike, and it was the right choice for me. I will own additional bikes in the future, but this one does just about everything I need. The only thing it wouldn't do well is make a cross-country trip to see you; maybe an FJR1300A or equivalent is in my future.

Hey DrF - looks good, I also ordered the silver/titanium color. This Jacket should be great this summer in the Virginia heat and humidity. I also commute on my bike all year round. Great shot of you and Cylon.

cheers
