1 Dayer T-Shirts

Riders now have the opportunity to purchase a Black Dog Ride 1 Dayer 2017 t-shirt. The t-shirt is available in both men's and ladies sizes for just $30 which includes shipping!

Please note -- the first pre-order has been sent to the supplier. Those will be dispatched prior to the 1 Dayer. A second pre-order is STILL OPEN! As the second pre-order won't be dispatched to the supplier before the 1 Dayer, buyers won't receive them until AFTER the 1 Dayer. However you'll still be the proud wearer of the first BDR 1 Dayer T-Shirt!

Grab this opportunity while you can and purchase them in the BDR Shop here.
