Top Overpriced Motorcycle Gear

5395 ratings | 326022 views
A hefty price tag on certain products does not necessarily mean that it is of great quality. Never judge a book by it's cover. Right? Well this time we will judge, because the cover does not reflect the expensive price tag on these products. RyanF9 shares his thoughts on some of the most overpriced items you can find on the market.

FWIW, I am reasonably happy with my Motoport kevlar mesh gear, had it for around 8 years.

Now let's talk about overpriced and yet unreliable bikes.

What do you mean deer whistles don't work? Next thing you're gonna say $50 a quart motor oil is functionally the same as the $5 stuff.

The deer whistle upset my cats at least. Maybe they should sell it as a cat whistle...

If you feel you need that Klin jacket, you should probably drive a car...protection is good, but when you get cooked inside your shell, don't you die as well?

I own gear from a lot makers; Olympia, Scorpion, Sidi, Alpinestar, Speed and Strength, etc, etc, etc, but I refuse to buy Klim. Just seems to me they are a bit too proud of their stuff, and focus their energies on marketing their next amazing technology way too much and not near enough on the basics of what riding gear is supposed to do. Fifteen hundred bucks for a bunch of the latest hi-tech wiz bangery that sucks at what it's actually supposed to do? Gee, sounds about like EVERY bit of Klim gear. No thanks...

I've had plastic Bell deer whistles on my truck for a few years. I've seen deer ignore traffic in front of me, but look up startled and run away from the road when I came closer. This has happened a few times, so I'm inclined to believe they have a positive effect. Of course, these are $6 for a set which I don't hear, not $100 for some electronic gizmo with ridiculous claims on the packaging. Also, it could have been my particular circumstances, I don't expect things like this to work all the time, it pays to pay attention to whatever's going on on the side of the road. In general I think pretty much all motorcycle gear is overpriced.

Ryan- I may have missed it, but have you ever reviewed anything from Aerostich? I have their one piece Roadcrafter Classic and really like it. Has great reviews, too, but I'd love to see you review their synthetic and/or leather options.
Can you please crash test the alpinestar T-viper air men's street motorcyle jacket

What would be a hipsterfriendly helmet solution? Safe, functional, practical (modern technologies etc), but still has a classic/retro vibe to it?

LOL I wore that jacket AND the pants on a trip through backroads with a friend in South Africa and it was fine. I wear it in Hong Kong as well that's much hotter than Montreal =P I have the non mesh Goretex version too, if you thought the Air was heavy LOL.... I'd wear that in cold Vancouver fall/winter it'd be perfect. Yea it's heavy but I know I won't have a broken back or rib in a spill in Baviaans without cell phone signal: https://youtu.be/5bTy3m4n-Oc

Most over priced thing about any vehicle is the insurance. For two years insurance I could buy a new fucking motorcycle. All taxation is theft.

If you really need insoles look up skateboard insoles, they are made for hard impacts on your feet while still remaining soft!

Klim; it's a marketing trick.. Create something that's ridiculously expensive so that the less expensive stuff seems affordable.

Years ago I remember someone looking further into the claims of a deer whistle. According to my fuzzy memory, they do work if by "work" you mean the deer will run. If I'm remembering this correctly the deer do run, but have no clue which way to run. I guess when they say it's more than 70% effective those other 30% of the time the whistle makes the deer run right at you.

Wow the video is quite informative than other channels, can you please make a video of airbag system bike jackets.
MrPoopnoddy (5 months ago)
A close-fitting chin guard (jaw-breaker) is what you should be looking for...a chin guard that's too far away from your fizzog will allow a correctly set chin strap to move too far back (and up) during a decent face-plant. So, would you rather have a sore mouth/jaw or have your spinal cord severed at the base of the brain as the strap rips through?

Disappointed to hear the Bell's a bust! I liked the fact a helmet manufacturer was trying to do something different as I'm bored of wearing helmets and gear that make you look like a transvestite stormtrooper into S&M. Peace and love to all the tranny wannabe stormtroopers out there by the way! As for the hipsters - they only wear open-face numbers so their beard can dangle in the wind and also fit the Ray Bans.

Come from an era when the deer whistle was plastic and probably cost of manufacture $.0001 selling for ten bucks. Waste. He's( or she ) is sitting on their yacht laughing. Love the presentations and candor. Not sure of the rest of you viewing this, but never go away Ryan. Consumer Reports could use a dump truck load of your humor. mahalo

Oh and the face shield doesn't rub on the helmet. Maybe I had a new and improved after your video model?
Austin Martin (11 months ago)
I really like all of your reviews on gear and on anything really and find them all pretty honest but I have a bell bullitt helmet and it is 100% the opposite of what you say it's the most comfortable helmet I've ever owned doesn't let in rain my chin has lots of room and there is no wind noise.
Nit the Liar (11 months ago)
It has been proven that some deer whistles CAN reduce deer accidents by 70 percent. you can thank STATE TROOPERS for those results, you have to get two though, the doe and the buck one. Deer can here the engine, but they don't know what it means. The deer whistle produces a sound that is a warning sign made by deer meaning to get out of the way, predator is coming. I'm sorry but you are simply incorrect.

worst ripoff ever - Pirelli corsa tires, - https://www.btosports.com/p/pirelli-diablo-rosso-corsa-tire-combo/option/871-1015 or any similar tires made for a new track. The cheapest 185-50-17's are the best deal, and keep new tires with less than 2000 miles on your bike. If you ride all the time, get a Goldwing and go darkside. If you do constant burnouts for street racing, get this for a rear tire (darkside) - https://www.summitracing.com/parts/mtt-6652 a front tire for drag racing cars.

The helmet reminds me of a 60's era Bell, and or an Astronaut's helmet from then also (Houston, we have a problem, my helmet is whistling).
Kenneth Settles (1 year ago)
My responses to your review are these: Dear whistle a $7 to $10 dollar pair of air activated make more sense then that one (keep them clear and if moving they work). I have used them off again on again over 45 years. I ride/drive quite a bit at night (including long haul trucker for 3 years) and all my encounters with deer (never hit, but close enough on my bike to slap her rear if so inclined) have been without one. I added them on our bikes after a dark night encounter with a doe in the Rockies of Colorado 4 years ago (after I missed her, she whipped around and almost took out my wife on her back who was behind me). I have since ridden those roads and others all over the US west and have seen, but only had them look up, since then and before (when equipped). I read quite a few reviews before making that decision and with a roughly 50/50 for and against, it was worth the added insurance for the money. But unless I had an encounter with one listed on the calendar, $150 will stay in the pocket. No, not pretty, but if placed well on a tourer, not obscene. The Jacket: You say "NEARLY" bullet proof. Well, if it was, I might consider it. I plan on riding all the way across Mexico next month and that bit of protection (if it was real) might be worth it. But then, for the much less cost of a real BPV, added to my already owned camelback and mesh jacket, I will go that route (if I actually thought I needed it, I would fly instead). Insoles: ???? Dr Scholls good enough. Thanks for noticing, Ken

J'ai le Bullit, je n'ai aucun des soucis mentionné..., j'en suis super content. Le seul point négatif, c'est effectivement en position ouverte il peut être bruyant... Mais tout dépends à quelle vitesse vous roulez... En France c'est 130 Max, c'est largement correct (en position fermé, bulle plate). Sous la plus jamais été mouillé... Ce n'est pas le meilleur casque... Il ne vaut pas un schubert au même prix, mais en promo à 320€... C'est correct.

I tried on a Bell Bullitt just today. Most uncomfortable helmet I've ever tried on. And the padding is almost non-existent.

Funny from a company who charges way too much anyway $$$. Really People??? Ryan is annoying as they come. Just another YouTube wanna be sensation with no experience trying act cool by dissing good products to sell their crap products. Good luck competing with the new Amazon (free 2 day shipping) warehouses being built across Canada right now.
