On my 2007 Suzuki Bandit 1250S. I am 5'9" and a 175 lbs. Cortech Injector Gloves: Worth every penny at $39.99. They don't feel like a $99.99 pair, but they're close. I wore them around yesterday in 55F degree weather. Nice. Want to cool your fingers? Just rest them on top of your levers to let more air in. The gloves feel pretty tough and I fully expect them to last. Tour Master Caliber Pants: First off, these run small. Medium is suppose to be 30-32" waist. I wear 32"W jeans comfortably and these are tight. I went up to a large and they fit great, alone or as an overpant. My only other complaint are the zippers. They're hard to zip. And the pant leg zipper doesn't open far enough. It was hard to get my shoes thru. However, these pants are well built. The adjustable CE knee armor is a nice touch. Zipper covers velcro into place and they fold in half so they don't accidently velcro back into place while you're trying to zip. The rest of the padding feels pretty solid too. I've tried a few styles of overpants on in the store and they all seemed to be like snow pants. Caliber feels like they'd be good for cruising or for track days. I wore the pants out yesterday in 55F degree weather. No liner, on top of jeans. They are very good at keeping the wind out. I was very comfortable wearing what you see in the picture. The helmet is an HJC IS-MAX: I love it, especially the built in sun screen. The jacket is a Tour Master Jett II (sized large) which zipped right to the Caliber pants. A fantastic pair. By the way, I used New Enough's cross-ship program to retun the pants. An excellent program if you can afford to wait for the return to be credited. Return money was back in my bank account the day after they received them. I used my debit card and bank online, so it was easy for me to verify. Thank you, New Enough, you people do business right!
