Default The Winter 2014 Essence-of-Brotherhood Prize (Winner!)

Its unbelievable how this year has zipped past us like a wide-open Warrior, and that means a bunch of us bikers got to talking again. Yep I know what you're thinking but as usual something good came out so its cool

We were thinking about how again this year there's been a lot of members who have jumped-in to help those posting bike troubles, and many jump-in to help diagnose meaning they are 'there to help' even before the nature of the problem is discovered. That takes time and dedication and maybe even a bit of 'been there' compassion and it seems to happen here every day.

This place is like no other. And members like you make this a great place to invest time and meet brother and sister bikers worldwide who also help each other succeed, and who also love to ride and get all the smiles-per-gallon their Warrior can dish-out. Plus we protect each other from the wandering jerks who might think we're easy marks because we send needed parts between us for cheap or free. We know that being nice is not a sign of weakness or blindness so those jerks are most often recognized and disappear even before we have time to ask the forum to show them the door.

Its been said before and will be said again: its good sometimes to recognize the good things and say thanks, and while we wish our budget were bigger we've cobbled together an award for one lucky member here.

This time we're giving-away one very nice set of riding gloves. How nice? Ohh, how about up to $200.00 USD nice, delivered, and YOU get to pick 'em! And the only requirement to enter is (A) post-up here to say you are 'in' and (B) say what gloves you want . . . but relax you can change your mind anytime!

Just so its out there, this isn't a forum thing its just a bunch of guys wanting to say THANK YOU to everyone just for being you. We figure this thread will run until ~midnight (USA Pacific Time) on December 29th and the winner will be posted as early as the night of December 30th but no later than midnight on December 31st. Then with luck the winner will post a pic here of their new gloves when they get 'em!

Let the fun begin!


Your Hosts:
Tomba, Shadow Warrior, Scawein, Parkinglot, Heff, HarryMarsch, Flyingdutchman, CaliforniaCruiser, ArizonaWarrior are not eligible, oh well!

EVERYONE:
Please remember to post-up what gloves you think you want, and
you can change your mind anytime plus we will ask the winner what
gloves they want (and size) before we get 'em coming. The idea is
to create a conversation that could help everyone into the future!

WINNER: 60ftgap!!
Please send me a PM with what gloves you want, what size, and where to get them for you for quick delivery!

Congratulations Steven!!!!

Guys, 60ftgap is getting black Alpinestars Polar Gore-Tex Gloves
in size Large . . . I'll get them ordered sometime tomorrow.
I have the ship-to address and everything is ready to rock!
These are some real nice gloves . . . have you guys seen 'em?

Also, Steven has asked that the balance go to The Salvation Army.
Once all's done we will make that happen in Steven's name right-on!

Thanks to all the hosts for this event, and thanks to everyone who entered,
and thanks to every participating member here because you are what this is
all about and its a privilege to be here among all you crazy bikers!

I'd like to be in for this drawing. I could use some winter gloves, but I've never even perused $200 gloves to know which I'd like. If I were to win, I'm betting I could find a suitable pair though. Thanks again to everyone who's contributed to this 3rd drawing of the season. It's unbelievable how great you all are.

Edit: After doing some shopping I think I've found the glove I wanna win. The Rukka Cosmo in size 11: Rukka Cosmo GORE-TEX Gloves - RevZilla
it doesn't get cold enough here to require heated gloves, but I could really use the waterproofing and a little insulation. These look phenomenal too.

We talked about two prizes but the gloves are run-of-the-mill and so a GREAT pair, a really-really-nice pair, is what we decided because we hope to communicate how much we appreciate everyone here and also because few of us have the opportunity to actually own a really really nice set of gloves.

So our hope is that everyone will accept the prize in the spirit in which it is offered and without guilty pressure brought-on by a vendor barging into a give-away financed by non-vendor-members and hijacking the donated funds while downgrading the prize.

We want the winner to have a GREAT set of gloves that they themselves select because what constitutes a great set of gloves will be different from person to person!
