Arrow Donate Gear to help New Riders

Howdy,

We all remember what it was like trying to cover the cost of the MSF course, getting a bike, a helmet, gloves, blah blah blah... All too often I see or hear riders saying that they will get gear later when they can afford it. In an effort to help keep these people in one piece and to help you clear out your closet, this thread is where you can post up any gear or equipment that you would be willing to donate to new riders. They will of course still be expected to pay for shipping if necessary.

So what do you have?

Rhino Gloves Sz SM

These gloves are a little too small for me. They were my first pair, and I got a knock-off brand (Rino? Rhino?) online to try to save money. They fit, but they make my knuckles all red if I wear them.

Blue and black, looks like kevlar on the knuckles.

Free to new a rider who needs them to gear up (and whose hands will fit them). Local pick up (Houston) or just pay actual shipping.

I'll try to come up with a pic later if I can.

Yeah, Sr. District Commander (Shift Commander) on A-Shift

I'll send them out to Medic 27 with the District 2 Commander. They cohabitate with AFD on Lake Creek Parkway (Engine 38?). If you swing by Thursday morning and pop in the EMS side, they should be there. I'll tell them to let B-Shift know you are coming since they get off at 0700.
