    Free Stuff - what works?

    I have a budget for some promotional give aways for our motorcycle events later in the year.

    I don't want to produce junk that gets thrown into the trash as soon as it comes out of it's plastic bag.

    What sort of things that are not too dear would you folk actually put to use? It's ratepayer funding, and the budget isn't limitless, but I don't want to waste what we have.

    What would you use?

    Condoms. I'd want an embossed logo (on the inside obviously... ribbed for her pleasure? - Nah)
    In the white room, with black curtains, at the station

    A couple of the pens given away by your predecessor are still working....haven't properly load tested the bag yet so witholding judgement on that.

    Whatever you decide, I want several. They're my rates.

    A mate in the North Island swears by a pen I have him. The only time he ever gets speeding tickets is when he hasn't got the pen with him.

    Now it's run out, and he wants me to get him another.

    I've suggested he slow down, but he believes in the power of the pen.

    coloured pipe cleaners, i have them through the zip handles on my jacket, the num,ber of times i've moved off and been distracted wondering if i'd zipped up my pockets. cloured pipe cleaners mean they can be grabbed while riding with gloves easily, less distraction, or i can quckly stand up on the bike and check them in my mirror again, rather than fumble and panic whther my cell phone sunnies or smokes might fall out.

    Tyre pressure gauges if accurate.

    Stand pucks are handy

    Why don't you work with bike shops or tyre importers - $XX rebate on tyres, or servicing.

    Neck warmers - I appear to never have enough of them.

    few yr ago I got glasses wipes, they were good, I still use the beanies, the first neck warmer/hat thingy was good but the next version were no use for anything, the stand pucks are handy, always had a few in the topbox and gave em away to people when on runs and saw someone trying to crush a can to put under their stand, visor cleaners are always handy, as has been said the tire pressure gauges are handy as long as they are accurate.

    a small torch is always handy and cheap as chips off ali express,

    as has been mentioned, some sponsored gift vouchers are always handy but none of this is any use to me cause I don't live anywhere near Selwyn district anymore

    Pressure gauges are really good idea, but as said, definitely only if they're accurate
    Puncture repair stuff?
    In a lineup, I'd probably take lens and visor cleaner
    Cleaning products are usually popular, or vouchers for Repco or Supercheap etc to buy plugs and oil
    I really like the anti-speeding-ticket pens
    NOT tread gauges, keyrings, brochures or those one-way rescue-breathing plastic things
    (neck warmers..? Grow a beard )
    High miles, engine knock, rusty chrome, worn pegs...
    Brakes as new
