The Qwi Team is proud to present Foster R. and his wife as the first to post their photos and
story on this page. The two of them took an incredible trip spanning over 10,000 miles while
riding their Honda Gold Wing and towing their trailer. Here is their story:

“I purchased a pair of your fingerless gloves at the Wing Ding in Nashville, TN a few years ago.
Both of my hands would sort of go to sleep after only about 30 minutes of riding, but after using
your gloves, my hands very rarely ever have any problems. We just returned from a 10,027 mile,
4 week, motorcycle trip from SE Texas to Anchorage, AK and back. I used your gloves the entire
way and my hands never went to sleep. The only time I did not use your gloves was when the
temperature got down in the 30's and I had to put on something that was warmer. I now am
considering purchasing the full fingered version for the cooler rides. Thanks for a great product.”

Over the years, the Qwi Team has made some
great friends while traveling to rallies around the
country. We see many of the same vendors at
these rallies and they have become our "Roadie
Family." These photos are from the guys of the
Wall of Death." They start at the bottom of this
structure and then ride their motorcycles at high
speed along the vertical walls. The man in the
leather jacket is "Handsome Charlie Ransom"
and he is one of the "Wall of Death" riders.

the ubiquitous green gecko, of course. The big guy on the
side of the truck and posing with the Qwi Girls is famous

2nd place out of more than 200 custom bikes at the 2010 Bikes, Blues & BBQ competition in Fayetteville, Arkansas.

97 miles, and then tore it down to the frame. He did extensive
engine work and highly customized the bike. Besides its
eye-catching good looks, it's also a very fast bike.  It has won four
First Place and one Second Place Award in custom bike

Rev Tom & Mrs Loretta C. from Willow Street PA shown here together on their trike. They
participated in the four day long Americas 911 Ride which took them to the three sites that were

Pennsylvania. God Bless our fallen fellow Americans. For those of you with extra sharp eyes,
Rev Tom tells us that this photo was taken before he began wearing Qwi Gloves.  Rev Tom
relates that his long-standing problem of hand numbness was relieved two months after he
began wearing Qwi Gloves.
"I'm Mike Zdancewicz, of Memphis, TN. That's my 2006 HD 883R Sportster. I've ridden it as
much as possible since buying it in May and promptly discovered some hand numbness and
'trigger finger' issues. My Qwi gloves have been a lifesaver for the dealing with the numbness,
reducing it by at least 50% and delaying it's onset for hours. Based on Joe's encouragement, I
went to see a specialist for my 'trigger finger,' got a cortisone injection, and that is on the way to
recovery too. Check out my website at
