Question Harley T-Shirts

OK, there has been a bit of talk here about HD T-shirts on different Threads.
Just wondering how many people here wear HD shirts and how many don't??

My Self, Yes I do wear them!!! I have quite a few!! I collect them from places I've been and a couple from places that I haven't been, those have been sent to me from people that I know!!

Wow! Wowie Wow Wow! 100% so far! That is incredible! Oh, only a few postings!

Anywho, I spend most of my wages on Harley-D T-shirts, buckles and boots. When I cruise by big plate glass windows and catch a glimpse of myself wearing my Harley shirt, I really look good. However, it's not to say I don't look good with my shirt off. I do, but I like to wear my Harley shirts because people will envy me both on and off my bike.

When ever I'm walking through a store or a park, or sitting in my church pew, quite often the little ladies will say, "Hey, mister, I really like your Harley motorcycle shirt. It is really colorful and you look very manly in it!" Some times such compliments embarrass me, but I usually reply with a modest, "oh, I suppose I do!"

However, sometimes, and it's usually a jealous boyfriend, will come up to me and say, "Hey bub, you think your pretty tough wearing that stupid Harley shirt. Maybe I ought to bop you in your nose!" I always apologize for offending them with my choice of wearing apparel, and then I punch them in the head. Some folks are just bad people!

Anyway, I wear my Harley shirts to show I am a great Harley fan and a great American!

Billy

Damn the poll sure does'nt reflect all the negative vibes Harley t-shirts and stickers were getting a while ago....I wear my HD tee's often and most of them arent even from the state I live in now, and a hand full the country.....Mike 74xlh

I wear them as often as I can. I always catch people staring, especially when I wear my Harley coat, mainly because I look like I don't own one. I think the guys that stare ride the crotch rockets and are intimidated and the chicks that stare are usually sorority sluts.

My favorite experience was this old bag of shit at the factory I work at during the summers. He said "people are going to think you gotta harley wearing those shirts all the time." He looked at me stupidly when I said that's the plan.

The good thing is you make a ton of friends when you wear one. I've actually made some connections with some guys at a couple different places for when I graduate school.

I have somewhere around 7 or 10 harley shirts. Most of them were given to me by other people. I like wearing them. I look fairly young and I know a lot of people look at me and think "yeah right, that kid doesn't ride a Harley" but many of them don't have the balls to come up to me and ask. I guess it's a sense of pride.

I also like the attitude I get when I go into crotch rocket shops wearing a Harley shirt. It's ironic that they give me the attitude because they think I am going to give them s t for being SQUIDs.

Not to mention my Harley t-shirts are the only t-shirts I have that aren't too offensive/ratty/evil to wear to work.
