I put some riding-gear that's "surplus" to my needs right now, into a local buy & sell online.
Got a phone call message yesterday morning that 'someone' was driving down to have a look (from about 1.5 to 2 hours N of Kelowna). I looked at other items I haven't worn recently, and figured I had more to sell, so mentally added them to my list.
Car pulls up about 4PM, and out jumps a fellow, his wife, then TWO teen-aged sons. Became clear pretty quickly that the dad is a fire-fighter, and that #1 son just bought a motorcycle (yesterday...!). Dad was sayin' you can't ride it till you're ATGATT, so they came down to look at an armored riding jacket and pants for the son.
I had two jackets in the advert - an ICON mesh one as well as a normal three season jacket, plus a pair of pants, AND a Tecnik one-piece rain suit. But, in addition - I was NOW adding ANOTHER mesh jacket, a two-piece rain-suit, and armored riding pants as available TOO.
The son tried on the "mesh one as well as the normal three season jacket", plus the pants, then thought that THAT mesh jacket was TOO expensive, so I hauled out the OTHER mesh jacket (that I had just added to the 'list') which fit him well, but not very happy w/ the pants, so AGAIN I grabbed the second pair of pants. They fit fine w/ the added benefit that the pants zippered to the rear of BOTH jackets!
They were all happy, dad working on a package deal for the two jackets and pants, the two-piece rain-suit, then asked IF I had any helmets available. I grabbed a BELL helmet that I'd retired a year or two back, handed it to the son - it FIT great - so dad was now working on a deal for FOUR pieces of gear
and named a price which was quite acceptable,(in the back of my mind was a thought that I would add a pair of Tecnik leather gloves that I'd 'side-lined' a couple of years back) so I said "SOLD - and IF these gloves fit, and are suitable - I'll throw them into the deal!"
The son's smile filled the garage, he shook my hand while dad handed me the ca$h, saying that they NEVER thought they could get EVERYTHING he needed in one deal!
GREAT helping a young fellow while clearing out some gear.
