I got my first pair of fingerless gloves in New York City at a flea market about two years ago. They're fun, they're striped... I love 'em
I have a new pair for this winter, thanks to Louis from the Rosebud Casino in Nebraska. Louis wanted to do a giveaway for the bikers attending the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally in 2009. He did customized fingerless gloves. They came out great and he took the time to send me a few photos and a nice note. That's Louis on the right.
This is the part of my job that I get high on. Producing a cool product that enhances a Brand. Promotional items don't have to be stick pens and white 11 oz coffee mugs.
I have a motorcycle. When I started riding, I found out there is like a secret motorcycle hand shake. I'm not sure how to describe it, kind of like a low hand wave. Whenever you're cruising up the road on your bike and you come upon a fellow biker you both give each other a slow, low sweeping hand to acknowledge each other. It's cool. I remember the first time I got one. I felt like I was part of a secret club. Makes me smile to think of the Rosebud Casino custom fingerless gloves. It makes them doubly cool. So now with the wave, they're not only fellow bikers but they shared a rockin good time at Sturgis at the Rosebud Casino. Memorable.
See you next year at the Rosebud, thanks Louis.
