Probably something that will go away over time as I wear it more.
Interesting, I had that pressure point on the RSR too, but only noticed it after a long day of riding with moderate to high speeds.

I even got the Transitions lenses for them. The whistling could be an issue...
Oh, I should have remembered that, the visor on the race pro does whistle above 30ish mph if you leave it up. Not an issue for me, just a reminder to put it down

No chance.

RSR2 visor



Speed R visor

That's too bad. Is the internal tinted visor on the Speed good enough for bright days?

It wasn't especially bright the day I rode, but I should think so. I also wear sunnies with Transitions lenses in them, but think the tinted visor will come in very handy. My morning commute is East and back West in the evening. At certain times of the year and day, the sun is hard down on the road, so the extra tint should help.

How do you like the Alien pants? I have a pair of Dianese New Drake that I like alot, especially on warm days, but I'm looking into leather and the Aliens did catch my eye. Do you wear them all the time? Ever feel weird wearing them to ride casually?

nice thread

edit: gdmnt I've got a sh1tl*4d of gear...

I'm picky for my gear and don't want to skip on safety. I've also put a lot of thought in some of it since I used to be a gear freak.

I get pretty hot in the summer with kevlar underpants and all kinds of protection, but I wouldn't have it any other way.

wearing gear for protection has worked for me (on track and street)

helmet:
- shoei rf1100: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w-avnuErsME
- agv ax-8 : http://www.revzilla.com/motorcycle/agv-ax-8-helmet

jacket:
- dainese super speed: http://www.revzilla.com/motorcycle/d...leather-jacket
- dainese alien : http://www.revzilla.com/motorcycle/d...leather-jacket
- dane goretex winter jacket: https://www.amazon.de/DANE-GoreTex-J.../dp/B00BZ2HGHM

boots:
- dainese torque rs out for on the track: http://www.revzilla.com/motorcycle/d...e-rs-out-boots
- alpine stars tech 7 for supermoto and dirtbiking: http://www.revzilla.com/product/alpi...s-tech-7-boots
- street boots: daytona goretex travel star gtx:http://www.daytona.de/index.php?page=811

pants:
- dane goretex winter pants (zips to jackets, both dainese and dane jacket) absolutely waterproof and warm. pretty long too.
- dainese delta pro (for the track): http://www.revzilla.com/motorcycle/d...-leather-pants
- dragging jeans double layered kevlar long underpants and regular jeans, which I wear 90% of the time combined with dainese knee v knee guards (see my full review here: https://www.triumphrat.net/gear-and-g...tectors-2.html) I switched from knox to dainese knee guards. dainese is better. I think kevlar jeans suck. better to go the full double layered kevlar. looks better too with regular jeans

gloves:
- gerbings heated gloves t5 for winter/cold riding
- dainese steel carbon for track and 90% of daily driving: http://www.revzilla.com/motorcycle/d...-carbon-gloves
- and some summer gloves (unknown) ventilated and leather
- dane gloves goretex (in between gerbings and dainese) / old leaky but good for quick rides

protection:
- dainese knee v knee guards, they absolutely rock full shin and knee protection. I always wear them on the street: http://www.revzilla.com/motorcycle/dainese-knee-v-guard
- dainese hard shorts, both on the street and on the track: http://www.revzilla.com/motorcycle/dainese-hard-shorts
- dainese back protector (track and street):http://www.revzilla.com/motorcycle/d...back-protector
- dainese wave g back protector (street, sometimes, I wear the full back protector mostly)
- dainese chest protector: track only - this one, because I like boobs: http://www.revzilla.com/motorcycle/d...hest-protector (just kidding, the men's version)
- revit h2o jacket and pants for rain trips (yellow) http://www.revzilla.com/motorcycle/r...2o-rain-jacket


heated gear:
for the long winter trips or commuting, with a dual controller, works great and I've ridden a lot in subzero (C) temps. Before that, I was absolutely miserable with 4 layers of clothing
- gerbing heated insoles: http://www.revzilla.com/motorcycle/g...heated-insoles
- gerbing heated jacket (older model than this): http://www.revzilla.com/motorcycle/g...d-jacket-liner
- gerbing heated gloves T5: http://www.revzilla.com/motorcycle/g...-heated-gloves

that's about it.

here's some pics:

my best shot ever (more here: https://www.triumphrat.net/street-tri...ml#post3036882)

Holy value bomb zyhano. Thanks for that. Your post has more or less become my shopping list. Or at least part of it, I clearly don'y ride anywhere near as hard as you.

I like your approach to have regular jeans with kevlar longjohns and armor underneath. Why pay top dollar for special jeans that'll get shredded up all the same? That's more or less what I'm considering doing this year.

But why the Dianese Super Speed and alien jackets? They seem so similar.
