Default Don't tread on me

I wanted to learn a bit about the "Don't tread on me" flag that Fat City used on their bikes and found this history about the navy jack. Apparently the Gadsden flag is currently adopted by the tea party.

Yep. It was a lot cooler until a year or so ago!
Too bad a long-gone and obscure bike company couldn't fully control the symbol

I actually had someone notice on my Yo and say 'Oh a Tea Party bike?'
Yeesh!

Jandd makes a cool saddle bag with the rattlesnake to fit your Fat, but then again I might be mistaken for a Tea Party Bag, or a Tea Bag so to speak.

I got a cool "Don't Tread On Me" Navy Jack T-shirt at the Naval War College museum in Newport, RI. Of course, it had a special meaning for me since we adopted the flag at FC.

@I-ROBOT: can you tell us why this particular flag was adopted by FC?

that's a northeast thing, I'd always imagined.
