Of course you will need to retire your Suzuki bathrobe in favor of one with a Yamaha Logo on it.

It's better to keep your old logo gear...it helps to preserve the memories of great bikes past and makes great conversation starters to regale the youngsters with tales of the "Glory Days!"







Also.....T-Shirts make great quilts if you have a significant other who likes to sew or there are places where if you send them stacks of old shirts they'll make the quilt for you!

If you want to anger a conservative, tell him a lie. To anger a liberal all one must do is tell the truth!

If you wear a Suzuki jacket while riding a Yamaha does that make you a crossdresser?
