1. That is a sexy ride!

2. You should be slapped if this is truly your last one.

3. What was your favorite?

I was looking at some revit gear (Sand or Tornado) online but had never heard of it or seen it in person. Is it really good? Do you have personal experience with either the Sand or Tornado gear?

Thanks for your help!

I don't have either of those although I have tried on the Sand and I do like it very much. I own a Sirocco jacket, Axis pants, and their Phantom gloves. The fit and finish on all of their products is top notch, far and above poor fitting items from Tourmaster and the likes. Most of their items run on the small size, but Revzilla can help you with sizing. For reference, I am 6' ft tall with a 31 waist and I wear a Large in all of their products except for the Axis pants.

As stated above, KLIM is a nice option also if you have the coin. My wife would have my nuts on a mantle if I bought a $1k jacket

Wink Clean pic

Okay, she gets a bath every two to three weeks so here she is clean. I bought my 2008 August with 17,700 on the clock and just rolled over 24,000 this week. She has ABS, TPMS, and ASC, but no ESA unfortunately. The deal was okay as I was in a hurry and wanted a bike with the face lift that was available for an extended warranty. Like an idiot I passed up an AWESOME deal on a 2010 demo model with lots of goodies for only $1500 more because I was nervous about pulling the trigger, oh well. I ride it 80 miles a day round trip for commuting right now with the occasional day trip thrown in the mix. Hopefully after I get some bags put on then I can do some longer rides. The wife and I just did a 300 mile day trip to ride up to Mt. Lemmon in Tucson and have never felt more comfortable on a bike. Adding the BMW Takedowns has made a HUGE improvement in my comfort and safety when blasting through the desert at 4am. I have Touratech risers, new screen, and some other stuff on it from the previous owner. Thinking of getting rid of the bag mounts for the Touratech special system and switching to Micatechs. What do you guys think?

I will get some action shots later on down the road.
