One of the early shirts I had said. I have a Harley, not just a tee shirt. It was part of the mystique, the easy rider horse shit. Being part of the select club. All marketing schemes.

I remember hearing this back in the 1980's. A lot of riders were wearing Harley T-shirts and riding Jap. I think they figured they would more acceptable in the bars and saloons. So they were called the "T-shirt Club".
I think spending 2-4 hrs pay on a T-shirt more than earns you the right to wear one. You're supporting an American Motorcycle Company.
