The Roadside Angel/Ogg Great Gear Giveaway is Coming!!

So one of our longtime BARFers, Ogg, has given up riding. Over several years of touring, riding, and track days, he's acquired quite a bit of gear. And people, lemme tell ya, it's the good stuff!
What he's done is ship it to me... 4 big ol' boxes of riding safety goodness.
They got shipped out here to California this week.
I started opening them yesterday... it was kinda like Christmas, TBH...

So what's the game plan?
Well, once I get everything itemized, with sizes, and taken pictures of all of the things, I'm going to have a Giveaway.

This is an opportunity for newer riders to acquire much-needed safety gear... and if you're a more experienced rider, and all you have is textile gear, and you've wanted to do a track day, but can't afford leathers, cool- but then is there a n00b that you can give your textile gear to?
If you're a broke-ass student, and your only transportation is your bike, hey, there's a set of heated gloves!

If you can afford to chip in a little into the kitty, sweet, make a BARF donation to help Budman cover some of the cost of running this place ad-free.

I'm sort of leaning towards an essay contest... once everything gets posted up, write a little paragraph about why you need the piece(s) you want. More importantly, Ima wanna know how you're going to pay it forward to someone else in need... because really, the single best thing about this forum is the way the members come together to help others. I've been off this place for a long time, but the level of empathy, concern and care shown for me when I lost Buster last month made such a difference... so I'm excited to be able to help out some new riders, and some more experienced riders who can then help out other riders, in awesome Old Skool BARF fashion!!

As far as getting everything to everyone, the easiest thing would be for me to throw all the stuff in the truck, and have a meet-up somewhere in the Bay Area... (maybe at Motowrx in LibMo- somebody better bring beer, jes' sayin'...) for those of you waaaay out of the area, we'll work something out for getting it shipped to you. FYI, I suck at getting shit shipped out...

Anyways, super stoked about being able to give so much cool stuff away...
Some of the stuffs are Sidi boots (touring, and track)... A* back protectors... A* 2pc leathers (nice black/silver!), luggage stuff that apparently straps on to the bike (have NO idea how that shit works lol), tank bags (magnetic AND strap on types!), leather heated gloves with the heater dealio, a bunch of Shoei replacement visors, liners, and a whole 'nother big box of I-don't-know-what because I didn't get it opened!
So keep an eye out for the actual give away, hopefully I'll have that posted by Sunday (if I don't go watch AFM and pine for the track)!

THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU OGG!!! This is the happiest I've felt since Buster passed!
And THANK YOU!!! to all the BARFers who've been so kind as to check in on me, and let me know they cared. Feelin' the BARF love!!

Yeah, he moved out of state at least 6 years ago (I've been in Stocktom for 5 now)... but I'll text him, and tell him you said hello!
I'm super stoked to be able to find homes for all this cool stuff!

Looking forward to this thread. I don't need much but who knows, I still need to do a track day. Never raced road just dirt, OG but still can learn new things. Really like the idea of an essay.

Pretty sure writing a one paragraph essay is a LOT easier than writing an app...

Dude... if there was an actual motorcycle, I am NOT that altruistic! It would just get quietly unpacked and relocated to the back yard!!

As a recently graduated (still poor and uses his bike for commuting) grad student I'm looking forward to see what's available. I could always use a set of boots since I ride year-round (if they are my size). Fingers crossed! Will provide an essay when required

Depending on your size, if the boots in the boxes are too big, I may have some that would fit. Hopefully we can find something that works!

She’s sandbagging. There’s a full hands-to-feet dual controller Gerbings rig. Plus a vest if the jacket is too much.
Kudos to Connie for putting this together. She’s doing all the work.
I just hope I get to read the essays :-)
