Got to say, it's a shame that the "badge" above, is such an obvious photoshop.

Being old enough to remember the "Harley Gatherings" promoted in the 80s by Peter de Savary as, in effect, commercial events in which the rally attenders were advertised as attractions to OTHER paying visitors, and since the Poles could manage to hand out a badge, you'd think there'd be one for this...

Appreciate the effort, but that wasn't my point... you'd think there'd be a badge? Especially over here, where rally/show badges are pretty much the norm...
