Anyway, i have tested the Scott Voltage OTG goggles, Alpinestars Jet motocross gloves, tank bag and Scott-Oiler vSystem... Overall, they work really great for me..

Scott Voltage OTG goggles (300 km of mileage tested)
- Works great with my glasses on
- fits perfectly in Arai Tour Cross II
- fits nicely on my face without any empty gap and not pressing too hard on my cheeks
- No fog at all, even at traffic jam
- Useful in rain, no fog built-up and water does not stay on the lens
- Definitely works very well at night time!!

- It limits my 'side' vision.. hence, i need to turn my head more to ensure no vehicles beside me
- If i ride more than 140 km/h, wind starts to press my lips and eventually air starts to enter the tiny mesh sponges, which penetrates to my eyes
- Wind noise
- Uncomfortable ride in heavy rain as rain drops hit my nose & lips at 140 km/h... now that's fookin' painful!

Alpinestars Jet motocross gloves (300 km of mileage tested)
- super lightweight comparing with leather gloves
- thin fingertips surface makes it easy to feel objects, i.e. money, iPod, etc etc
- feels cool, even at traffic jam
- easy to dry-off when wet after heavy rain

- less protection than leather gloves
- feels thumper vibration more as the palm surface is thin

Scott-Oiler vSystem (1,500 km of mileage tested)
- Chain is always lubricated
- Save time and space for not using & carrying chain lubricant container
- Lasts 5,000 km per re-filled tube container

Tank bag (1,500 km of mileage tested)
- Waterproof 'with rain cover', tested in 350 km of heavy tropical thunderstorm
- Amazingly useful to keep road maps, mobile phones, wallet, passport, iPod, etc etc
- Huge magnets, hence tank bag stays tight and securely upright
- Medium-Small size
- will be my Olympus E-P1 camera bag
- Looks fookin' great on KLR 650 Redbull Dakar
