Western Swing II
Thursday at Sonoma, just as I was going out for the Class 'C' race, I noticed the seam on one of the fingers of my glove had split. This was probably damage from cold tire practice crash on the Brammo electric bike I had at Willow Springs five days earlier. After the race, I tried to do a bodge repair on the glove with 'Shoe Goo' after asking around and not being able to find any needle and thread. Minutes later, I ran into Lee Block. He reminded me that we used to race together at Bryar M/S Pk in Loudon, N.H., back in the good ol' days. Now he's living in Ca. I asked him what he was doing now and he told me he was the distributor for the Austrian company Racer Gloves. Just the man I wanted to see! I told him my tale of woe with my old gloves and he tightened me up with a new pair of Racer Gloves. Just in the nick of time and they worked great. Thanks, Lee.
