I've been wearing them forever and have them from all over as well. One I don't wear is the one that Willie G. gave me and signed of course. It's a 90th anniversary one. My ex used to babysit his niece and he came over on several occasions to pick her up. Brought us each a shirt and a few other things around the Holidays.

Were the T-shirts different in 2005 when this poll was started? I ask, cause most of my Harley Ts come from before 2005. My only newer ones are the ones my girlfriend buys me when we are touring out of state. One thing in have noticed, the post 2005 T-shirts seem short. Tough to tuck in. It sems Pre 2005 shirts were at least a inch or two longer.

I think there were a lot more "pocket" t-shirts and there usually wasn't a dealer name on the back.

I did not notice that, but you are correct, that back in the day, smokers had a chest pocket. It was a pre-cell phone era so the pockets were too short for your smart phones. I looked at my shirts and many, no most had the dealers name, but it was elaborately designed and names were less "cute" than today's "cool" sounding dealerships. I mean who would not prefer Lone Wolf, or Lawless, to Eastside or Fred's? Today, many are just basic dealers name and location. I guess for free advertising when you were it.

Though the 90s and early 2000s, we attended rallies and gathered many tee shirts. We'll probably never have to buy more as I have many little worn. That said, I wear a Harley T almost everyday. Of course, living in Idaho, for 7 months no one knows that I carry Harley next to my skin!

There, finished my coffee, time to go for a ride.

You can get HD t-shirts on-line without a dealer name and now Harley is coming back with some of the old prints from the '70's and '80's.

I don't think I've seen a Sportster T shirt. Most seem to have Big Twins or skulls! Would like to see a few 70s & 80s T shirts for a change.

I once saw an American ad for a T shirt
"Harley Davidson Sportster, humiliating Big Twins since 1957"
But I don't recall seeing any Sporty shirts on bods.

I only have one Harley T-shirt from the dealership that I bought the bike from. As I visit other dealerships I will pick up more to wear.

One thing, I have read on the interwebs that a harley shirt needs to be earned. What gives?
