I have flown both the U.S. and California flags on my motorcycle for years but no matter where I buy the flags they don't last long. I know they take a beating in the wind and I am tired of buying new flags. Now one of my flag poles has somehow failed (M&J Enterprises) and getting a replacement seems difficult. I called the number many times, left VM, nothing. So I am removing the flags. Its a bit sad. I liked flying the flag while flying across the continent.
