It's hard to find a shirt that isn't stained with MUD SPLATTER!! Brown is my color. Some women pay big $$ to have spa mud treatment. I prefer to get my mud right from the trail

Ya gotta LUV it,

Reach for the brake levers on a scooter (not motorized, the simple ones or whatever). Happened to me. Long story short, in less than half a minute I had reached a sickening speed and once I realised I HAD no brake levers, I remember I had no brake anyway, it broke off. xD

...you rip the passenger and back seats out of your car so you can keep your bike, parts and tools in there--at all times, so it's ready to go. Well, the wheelset's in the trunk, actually and, yes, my car is a POS.

When driving your car up the road you check your line to see if there might be a more effiecent way up the hill. When going downhill you push yourself back in your seat and tell yourself to lay off the brakes.

Then these tshirts would probably interest you.

"About Us Dirt Shirts offers truly unique products which are hand-dyed using real clay from various regions around the country." But that takes the fun out of making the stains yourself.

Been there done that too many times. In fact the first time I met my in-laws, I had my bike with me.


You mt. bike too much if...
-you've gotten used a little dirt with your water.
-on the way home from a ride you stop at the car wash. Then spray down the bike and yourself.
-when looking for a vehicle, you pick the truck with rubber, not carpet.
-The floorboard of your truck is a mix of dirt, gu packets, and twigs.

Did I give you a ride in my truck recently - you described it pretty accurately...

My husband teases me that I wash my bike more than my truck...washing the truck is a MAN's job!!

I have a dirt shirt from Sedona AZ. However, we have brown mud here, not red, so my mud doesn't match their mud!

A little off-topic, but spray down the bike is probably not the best way to wash a bike, unless you don't care much about the paint and lube.

When you wake up after jumping off your bike and the position youre in is your legs wide and your right hand outstretched to grab the bike's seat.
