One of my Harley t-shirt collection came from a guy I met while camping in Custer, SD for the 75th Anniversary of Sturgis rally. The guy, his wife, and all their friends had been meeting at the same campground for the past eight years during the rally. He works for the government over in the sand box and the shirt he gave me is from Harley Davidson of U.A.E Abu Dhabi.

No end to the general public misconceptions

It's always entertaining when someone mistakes your VTX for a Harley. I had an old man swear he thought my bike was an Indian. I had another guy ask me what kind of Harley my bike was and when I told him, "It's a Honda" he laughed and said, "Very funny, I know a Harley when I see one." When I said, "It's a VTX 1300" he nodded and told how Harley was his favorite bike. I'd bet he told someone he'd seen the new Harley VTX 1300.
