Revit Cayenne Pro

Time for an upgrade from my 6 year old Kilimanjaro, anyone have any experience with Revit Cayenne Pro?

I personally don't, but have a lot of really good things about them. Give Dennis at BeachMoto a call. He's comes highly recommended on some other forums and Revit is all he does.

If price is no object and you're looking for extreme comfort and versatility I would recommend you also consider the Rukka APR / AirVision riding apparel.

I ride in all weather; below zero to pouring rain to 130F in the Mojave and only have need for one riding suit.

I've survived a 50 mph high side get off without a scratch (broken leg) and the Finnish manufacturer repaired the suit to like new for a nominal fee, so the service is great as well.

I'm going into my 5th season with it and it still looks almost as good as new. My wife got a new one last year and any enhancements have been well engineered, not just fashion gimmick.

Google "Rukka".

Only one Revit dealer anywhere near me it's a real cool Ducati, and Aprilla dealer in Greenwich Village a couple of blocks East of the Ear Bar. 155 Avenue of the America's, but it's really on Spring Street for any New Yorker's. Anyway they are listed on Revit's web site as a platinum dealer, and had all of three Cayenne Pro Jackets. At least they had one my size, and it feels like butter compared to the First Gear I have. They did have a ton of expensive leather from Revit, mostly racing stuff. They didn't have the Cayenne pro pants, so I excused myself, and ordered the set in grey/black jacket with grey pants from Revzilla on line. I usually like to try everything on first, But Revzilla allows one free return for size on the house so I ordered. Should get it in a week or two full report to follow. Rukka APR's looked great, but the jacket alone 1,200.00.

I'm sure the dealer appreciated you trying on their stock and then going to order online. How much did you save?

I only saved $60.00, but would have forked it over if he had what I was looking for. He had the jacket, but no pants. He was talking about a special order taking yada yada yada, and passing through customs so I pulled the plug online.
