    Rally T-shirt designs

    I'm hoping this year's rally committee has gotten some feedback on t-shirt designs, specifically the lack of nice colorful designs on the back of the shirts.

    We had a great logo design last year and it was only replicated on the front pocket area (the back was a bunch of type!). What a waste!

    Let's get back to those great looking shirts like the ones from Johnson City or (my favorite) the one from Wisconsin a few years back! Something we are proud to show off among all that HD stuff out there!

    Whatever design you choose, take into consideration that a very large printed area on the back of the shirt does not breathe. This is very uncomfortable in hot climes. Specifically. the Gillette shirt was a real bear. I threw it away after about 2 hours riding on a hot day. It held the heat like a rubber shirt. :-(

    By now it's probably a done deal (wouldn't you know - of all the things Chuck & Julie Manley and I chatted about at the MOA booth in Chicago last weekend - the Tee's was not one of them), but here's my two cents worth:

    How about the "Howlin' At The Moon" logo on the front, and the back filled with the MOA's 40th Anniversary 'poster' like we've been seeing in the Owners News?!

    This is true. Tee-shirts are hot weather apparel. They also need to be 100 percent cotton for the same reason.

    Thanks for remembering the West Bend Gemichlicheit shirt from 2007. I liked that one best too.


    Did you know that Chuck and Julie Manley, the chairs for this year, helped me design that shirt, and then Jonathan Tessler took our ideas and created the phenomenal finished artwork?

    The design for this year -- 2012 Howlin' at the Moon -- will be another great shirt, and should conjure up all of the great memories we will make while we are in Sedalia this summer. I can't wait!

    Sometimes it's the bend in the road that makes life worth the ride.
