Ran into a recent transplant from MS. A real character that made me laugh and could appreciate his commitment to ride first. He was lighting up some kind of smoke to start his ride on his Indian Chief. We recently had more than a foot of snow and the side streets are still a mess. The first thing I did was check out his tires and there they were KNOBBIES. I had to laugh again. Makes me appreciate you tough guys that ride year around in Northern climates.
