That US Flag has been Flown at all DirtWeek's AND...
Sent to DRN Member Marine Sgt. "Kav" in Afghanistan, where it was taken on-board a Harrier to "unspecified locations" to drop some "Greetings from the USA, Mr. Taliban" . It also flew over Camp there, as well as the Capital of Wisconsin prior to that. That flag has some serious mileage on it!
We were honored that Kav, back from the middle east, was able to deliver the DW Flag at DW 03! If you missed the National Anthem that morning, with our vet brothers at attention holding that flag, you missed out BIG TIME. If you were there and a tear did not fall...
(In the group shot, Kav is on the left (blue Fox gear) holding the flag. "oldguy", who originally donated the flag, is holding the flag, just right of the star field)
And on another note:
PLEASE remember to support those comapnies that support us! All those give-aways were supplied by companies that "get-it". They understand that those that attend DirtWeek are the ones that matter. ANY company will take your money, not many will give something back.
A HUGE thanks needs to go to those sponsors!

Cool! :thumb: I think I see myself (just outside the top right corner of the "A" in "SAMPLE").
As for the sponsors, well, I can't get Billy to take any money from me :laugh: and I did order my new Shoei VFX-R Air Rabid (blue, of course) from Jeff at MXSouth, just repacked the Big Gun with Performax, put a nice glide plate on the kTm last year from Works Connection, waiting for Zoomer to find me a power washer, always refer kTm guys to and bought all my orange bike parts from Mike @ CycleZone, will be replacing the 426 with a blue 450 one of these days-complete with Dr.D D-shaped pipe, the list goes on and on...!!! :)
Minor correction the flag origonally flew over the USA Capital then made the trip to Wis. Once here it flew at the funerals of 2 fallen law enforcement officers, the State law enforcemnet memorial, and my home between happier times at Dirtweeks.
It was truley an honor that Kav would fly it during an active involvement under taken by the US Marine Corp in defense of the worlds freedom. I teared up a I watched Kav and Tony unfurl and display it at Cooperland this year. It will be in many more DW posters as time goes on
