A while back, I was at the Dover Saddlery store in Dallas.. I bought a pair of lime green Ovation gloves for practicing.
Would ya believe that *already* they're falling apart at the seams? Literally! What a mess! How entirely disappointing!! I realize I ride a decent amount, but with the neck and headache pain lately, Harley's getting 2-3 days intense ride a week, and that's just not a long enough time for gloves to start unsewing themselves.
I contact Ovation - Yeah, I know .. Long Shot, and they'd probably say "get what ya pay for". They weren't super high-dollar gloves, but light enough for daily summers here. In about 12 hours, I got an email back.
They've got me a new pair of gloves on order, should be here early September (backordered to arrive at their shop 8-31).
Whatta way to do good business! Clap Clap cheer cheer!
I'll update the quality on the new pair, and let everyone know how they hold up.
As for me, I got some riding this weekend. Learned that, at least in this heat, Harley needs spurs to jump worth a toot. Didn't knock the rails down, but he sure didn't leap over them joyfully, either. Mo and I stayed around the house, and got some arena fitness work in. We're riding a few days a week, and keeping it simple.
Heading to a different specialist in Houston this afternoon. It doesn't seem to matter what I do, the high neck/base of my skull pain remains. The more I move about, the worse it is. If I stay really still, it's even worse. Crazy, huh?
