I try not to wear logo shirts, opinion shirts or any type of shirt or clothing that has cute or stupid sayings on it or advertising for a brand. Just plain, that works for me. If I am going to a particular event like a fly-in or a motorcycle rally or a Jeep-fest or a SCUBA trip then I may break out some logo or activity-centric clothing. But otherwise, not.

I would not wear any of the pictured items, ever!

I've got 1 brand specific shirt. I generally only wear it if I'm going someplace where there's likely to be mostly Harley people, since at those kind of events it seems that EVERY Harley rider feels a need to wear a Harley franchised shirt, I guess so they can feel a part of the rest of the group. I don't want to feel left out, myself, so that's when I wear my branded shirt - no, it's not Harley - I prefer to NOT feel like part of the main herd.)
I do, however, own and wear several shirts that are motorcycle related but brand agnostic... A couple of Iron Butt shirts, a couple Tail of the Dragon shirts, a couple of shirts from other motorcycle roads I've been on, (Iron Mountain, Beartooth Hwy, Arkansas Pig Trail, etc), a rally shirt from a rally (but not a "festival atmosphere" kind of rally).

I'm another guy that doesn't like to broadcast what I'm into via clothing. I don't think there's anything wrong with it and I do wear shirts with things on them but all those shirts were bought for me. Any shirt I buy is just plain black or dark blue.

I have quite a few motorcycle themed t-shirts, that I wear when riding and not riding as well. Some are cute like the one with a picture of a bike and the words "Cheaper than therapy", or the one that says "Only cool grandfathers ride motorycles", or the one I am wearing right now that just says "Ride More". I have Triumph shirts from when I owned Triumphs and quite a few Honda t-shirts. I have shirts from most rallies that I have attended as well as from the annual International Motorcycle Show where you get the themed t-shirt for $5 over the cost of admission. For me, the t-shirts are something that reminds of my bike and riding especially during the long winter months when the bike is covered and cold in the garage. And I have never had a problem with any of my shirts offending anyone, even in this day and age when it seems everyone is offended by almost everything.

FWIW, I am a Life Member of the NRA, but I never wear NRA or gun themed clothing. Motorcycle clothing is fun and harmless. Gun themed clothing, or bumper stickers, or hats, etc. may tell a potential adversary more than I wish to tell him about myself. I carry a concealed firearm every day, regardless of what I am wearing, unless I am going somewhere where there will be metal detectors such as a courthouse. Wearing clothes or a hat with a gun theme might just alert the would-be mugger than I might be armed, and it is not in my interest to have him even think that. I like being the invisible old white haired guy, but one who is ready and willing to defend myself with a firearm if needed. But again, motorcycle clothing gives away no vital information, and might in fact be something that causes an old biker to get into a conversation with me, and that's just fine with me.

Shameless!

Come in here and pose as a person asking a genuine question, when in fact really what you want to do is sell your product!?

Shameful!

I didn't see any of the replies asking for purchase info. So even if the intent was selling, it provided something for the rest of us to talk about.

I'd wear a motorcycle t-shirt. I have a Chevrolet shirt that I wear sometimes, a Chevy ball cap I wear everyday. Got a couple Sheriff's Office Charity Ride shirts.

I might wear that first shirt, maybe... Not a fan of the others, sorry.
