I have had a 2008 FZ6 for 2.5 years and 11.5k miles. I changed it to a VFR. I now own a 2009 Red Daytona 675 as well. I am not a big guy at 5'8" and 140 lbs. I bought the Daytona 2 hours a way by...

Haven't ridden either

I would cross out the Aprilla - I think it is considerably heavier than your thumper and is not well suited for the highways. It's engine is better for the highway, but not much else. Don't laugh,...

CWR-1 Transitions shield for Shoei RF-1200

I figured I should start a new thread since this is a different shield. I saw these advertised but not available anywhere. What gives? Were they ever on the market? This is for the CWR-1. Thanks!

DR's

That's great feedback - thanks! I have an Arai Profile and a more long oval head shape. If that is the case, the Shark would not work for me either.

Bmw

BMW makes gloves for big hands as well. For a waterproof and comfortable glove that won't break the bank, try their All-around. It comes in sizes 12-12.5 and 11-11.5
