  • Jay Eriksen - product absolutely did not agree with me

    it was awful of rme, hot flashes were worse, i got hives all over my body which took 4 days to clear after I stopped taking the product. Their customer service department knew nothing and said no one had ever had any kind of allergic reaction ever! I cannot believe this at all. Well it didn't work for me but to be fair, my girlfriends said it worked for her and that is why I tried it so maybe I am the exception to the rule.

  • L Rod - JUNK!!!

    I Purchased the Patriot Defender exhaust pipes for my 2007 Fat Boy. Easy to install, but when I started the bike I noticed the exhaust turned gold especially where the exhaust goes from two into one. To make matters worse, the weather was only 45 degrees so it was not like it was hot outside. The cost for all this, $375 for the pipes (with shipping) and another $295 for mapping the exhaust, total $670. Not worth it, Learn from me don't buy these pipes!!!
