I've been riding Harleys for over thirty years so I've collected a few. Now I pretty much collect them from the different countries I get to. I'm still trying to get one from Bahrain. I was stationed there in the late 70's and there wasn't a dealer there then.

As of my 50th B-day last week I now have 41 from all over the world. Co-worker is supposed to be bringing me one back from the states next week.

Having a lot of T-Shirts has a + side to it, be it from an H~D Dealer or otherwise and that is it saves on the environment, meaning less to wash all at once...I have a pant load of T-Shirts from H~D, some were given to me by a friend as he too has a pant load and they take up a lot room...I gave about twenty or so to my cousin so she cloud make handbags out of them 3 years ago but her early 20th century Singer Sewing Machine self destructed due to rain...She never made any handbags but I think they would've been pretty cool as she is still part hippy...LoL...not sure what happened to the shirts?? I do my laundry about 6 times a year as I have collected so many shirts...

My thing is I only buy a shirt from dealers I have rode my bike to. I will not do T-shirt swaps and wear shirts from places I have not been to and I will not buy a shirt from a dealer if I took my car there for whatever reason. I only make the acception if I have rode my bike there before and am now there in my car for parts or something that if I want one I will buy another shirt but only if I have rode to that dealer before. So far I have a shirt from every state except kansas, Nebraska, colorodo and Alaska.when I ride to those states I will then buy a shirt. When I circled the country I bought the shirts as seuveniers from my trip so even though the shirts don't fit me anymore I won't throw them out.
