gonzo2k-

Glad you asked that gonzo2k. Only about 5% of my clientele gave feedback that they'd like a little tougher, more durable set of OGB's, but we decided to re-design/reformulate the composition of our neoprene, anyway, based on that minority feedback. I am nothing if not the quintessential consumer looking for good value, so in my mind it a'int OK unless it is as close to perfect as I can make it. That being said, there will still be detractors out there, regardless of how hard you strive. I know this, though: I am committed to making my product the very best it can be. I guess this is the long way of saying that most agree that the SUPER SHARKSKINS are the most durable model of OGB's yet. That also being said, I have many many customers like yourself who were very happy and satisfied with the original models I will be putting up for 40% OFF during my midwinter blow out group-buy sale later this month (remember: these will be in limited quantities, so first come, first served!!!).

Thanks again for your brand loyalty and your support.

Best,

Dave R.

Good to get this feedback. Madly preparing for the trip next week to Indianapolis for the dealer show. Will definitely run the sale after I get back. Will just have to make a few small changes to the website to accommodate the sale.

Best,

Dave R.

Looks like there's plenty of interest, so I'll be running the sale in about 2 weeks (after the Indy Show). Thanks for the feedback, guys. I Think we can have a good sale and blow out this original stock at a great discount for all.

Best,

Dave R.

Does the free shipping apply to Canada as well? I would be interested in a set.

easy_rider_77-

The way it will work is that the price will be $15 with free shipping (CONUS) for the original model of my grips. There will be additional shipping for international orders, especially because in late January the USPS bumped its rates up sharply for international shipping. Not sure what the intl. shipping charge will be though, because we are still working that out. Bottom line is: you will have international shipping for any of my grips, but you still save the 40% through this sale before shipping, by buying the originals.

Hope this helps.

Best,

Dave R.

p.s. We are getting close to announcing the sale, as soon as we work out how to integrate it into the website. I will announce it as soon as we are ready. DJR

Almost there!!!!!

Hi Guys!

Back from the Indy Dealer show and working on the website to accommodate the sale on the original grips. I estimate it will take about 2-3 days to get them all listed and the code written.

Thanks for your patience. I'm sure it will be worth it when I get this blowout sale up and running. Will keep you all advised as we go through the next few days.

Best,

Dave R.
