Over on the auction site, we were just given a collection of leathers by Kevin Erion – he asked us to auction them all off with no reserve!
So far we’ve listed leathers worn by Jake Zemke, Mark “Thriller” Miller, and Alex Gobert. We’ve got more coming – Andrew Stroud, Doug Toland, Eric Bostrom, etc. But the most interesting one so far in my mind is an unworn set created for Anthony Gobert, also known as “The Go Show“.
One of the big headlines leading into the 2004 AMA Superstock series was the signing of Anthony Gobert by Erion Racing. Per this press release on Roadracing World, Kevin Erion (President of Erion Racing) said, “We are excited to showcase Honda’s CBR1000RR in the AMA’s Superstock class in 2004, and we are equally excited to have a rider of Anthony’s caliber competing in this class on the Erion team.”
Anthony was signed on to ride alongside his younger brother Alex. He said, “I am 28 and I’ve never been a quitter. Kevin Erion is giving me a chance to prove myself and I am ready to race.” Unfortunately, two months later Anthony got a DUI and was released by Erion Racing. “There is a level of commitment and dedication that is required to be a rider on our team. Unfortunately, Anthony was unwilling to demonstrate the level of commitment and dedication required to get the job done. We wish Anthony well. He has displayed great talent over the years.” As such, this suit appears to have never been worn.
