Flying a real, full sized flag on a bike in a parade at 30 mph looks great,
but when I see an American flag being shredded by the wind at 75 mph,
I have to think that there is a point where the desire to display should be tempered
by the obligation to protect and preserve the dignity of the flag.
I'm not criticizing anybody, maybe they can't see how brutal the wind at full speed looks.
Just my opinion. I have stopped on the hiway and picked up somebody's flag
that got torn off and was being run over by traffic.
Once you establish yourself as an eccentric,
you rarely have to explain your actions.
