Help With Lobster Glove Design Flaw
Just bought a pair of PI Lobster Gloves, and they sure are warm. My only problem is that I still haven't figured out how to send deserving motorists a one-fingered salute with these things on. Not that I would ever do such a thing, but hypothetically, if I did, I fear it woud come off looking like some sort of Star Trek tribute.
Dooooooooooh! I wasn't ready for that one.

I've just been holding up my first and middle finger together. They get the idea. LOL.
I've noticed another flaw in the lobster gloves... the velcro part on the wrist falls apart. It happened on the first pair I had. Now, on the second pair, it's cracked, but hasn't started falling off yet. I'm afraid it's only a matter of time now.
Interesting that you had that happen too. I was thinking about getting a pair of PI lobster gloves, but when I was trying them on for size in the LBS the velcro on the wrist cracked or fell apart on every pair I tried. It didn't make for a strong selling point

Break a finger off a mannequin. Keep it handy somewhere (rubber-banded to your handlebar or something). When the situation calls for it, put your left hand in a fist, and with your right hand, stick the finger in the crotch between the two lobster claws, and raise it to the other party. They'll get the idea. And your own digits will stay toasty warm.

Well if you're gonna steal a finger off the mannequin, might as well steal the entire hand.
Drill a hole at the wrist, insert onto your grips, give EVERYBODY the finger.
