Hello all,

Been lurking on the site for a while and finally decided to join. I've been a fan since I bought my first set of Oakley 1 grips in 1978. I used all sorts of grips, goggles & masks, gloves, etc. through many years of BMX, the snow & moto goggles, sunglasses, etc.

Earlier this year I landed a job at FHR, and it's been a killer experience to say the least. The passion, creativity and mad science behind the O are alive and well. So much great stuff on the horizon. It's an honor and a privilege to be a part of it, even if just in a small way.

Stoked to be here!

Thanks all! Super grateful for the time I had at the O. Still many amazing people there and great things to come!

Wish I could show & tell you more about what they did for me when I left. Unfortunately, some things need to stay within the bunker walls!

Mike

P.S. Whoever sold that hardbound set of O5 books should be exiled!! Great find though.

This past Friday was my last day at the O (really tough decision to leave, as you can imagine!). One of my parting gifts was this custom painted OTT. Not painted by Takumi, but by another in-house talent who is a serious up-and-comer. There was a recent (and final) run of OTTs, none of which are for sale, but I'm sure you'll be seeing more. Some crazy ass paint jobs!

Thought you might like this too...

Okay, so this is clearly cheating since I work at FHR, but how do you get The Engine Room? Probably some other cool FHR-based options too.
