Oh I have but my present (and only pair) is damn near worn out. The Racer High Speed gloves have a fused pinky and ring finger design I've been wanting to try out...and not the hard way either.

I broke my pinky in a pair of Buffalo Pros, mentioned it to him, and he said that he's seen those break both fingers often enough that he doesn't think they make sense.

Now, this is interesting. I should be looking for low-milage Ducatis, cheap, you think? Like I could out weasel the other barf weasels ....... sure.

Well, here's a couple to be had:

https://sfbay.craigslist.org/eby/mcy...594314609.html

https://sfbay.craigslist.org/sby/mcy...595151480.html

Low miles to me and half the MSRP brand new. =)


I'm not saying these owners dont know what the value of their bike is, but the value of wearing gear. I see more riders geared up on a Honda Hawk or an SV than a S1000XR or Monster.

Agreed!
To think this business was located in Morgan Hill.
Taxes and other non business friendly BS forced him to relocate to Oregon!
Just like Helimot.
