Let me start by saying... I am a lover of the c six. I have been back and forth over ordering them countless times. I havent pulled the trigger yet. Ive came close but have never done it. i have tried them on at the Oakley HQ and looked at a million photos and stared at the order page a million times. I want to display and PERHAPS wear them....not sure. Well this past saturday i was helping set up a party for my mom and a buddy of mine came over to help us set up. im walking in and out with tables and chairs and glance over at him as he passes and i suddenly stop and spin around...He is wearing the aluminum CSIX! Well we were running around like crazy and i didnt get to ask about them till 20 minutes later. He didnt have them on so i thought i was imagining things. I asked about em and he pulled em out of his shorts pocket....no soft case...nothing!! I was amazed! Anyways i got to play with em for a few minutes and away he went....Nobody except you guys will understand the story....so i thought i would tell it here!! ..AND LIKE THE DUMSKY THAT I AM...I DIDNT TAKE A PIC!!
