please.... No.... uncle..... I give.... Not the video punishment..... I am so sorry.... I plead insanity from having to wait until noon, when it warmed up to optimum riding temperature...77 degrees... The three hour wait to ride must have effected my sanity.... Please forgive me.... I guess I just had too much free time on my hands....

WIF YOU GLOAT while we suffer through this horrible disease, you will be put into a timeout. Continue to taunt us and more extreme measures will have to be taken, the first of which will be a week long writing course for beginning authors hosted by Big Daddy. This will also include mandatory watching of all the videos he posts with follow-up posts explaining to us all what you learned from those videos. Do not push us or we will have to move to the next phase of punishment.



Dear forum moderator,
Since it has become obvious (to us Chief/Scout owners that live down south and get to ride our awesome Indians all year) that our northern tribe members are already suffering from "Parkedmyindianforthewinteritis". The symptoms include boredom, spending too much time online, hijacking forum threads with nonsensical conversations thoroughly unrelated to topic headings posted in, as well as other unreported abnormalities. Possibly, could you help these poor souls by opening up an exclusive sub forum for them to post in? this isolation, like the Ebola isolation protocol, would make it easy for them to communicate amongst themselves, discussing their symptoms and potential cures, as well as other thus unrevealed topics. It would also thoroughly protect the rest of us, who are running the miles up on our odometers, from possible infection. It will also, and most importantly, protect us from losing valuable genuine leather (whether it be brown, black or some ever changing color) seat time when we find we must needlessly browse page through page on the the present forum topics looking for any scarce snippet of pertinent information. It would also provide a "window" for us southern tribe members to safely peek in at our unfortunately inflicted northern members, just to make sure they still have retained their sanity, and their condition hasn't progressed to stage 4, where they bundle up in their snowmobile suits, braving their frozen garage spaces, removing the war bonnet donned weatherproof bike covers and perching on the battery tendered bikes, making vroom, vroom sounds through their chattering teeth and bluish lips. I know, its a pitiful sight, but we need to have a secure place to go to monitor the progress of our suffering brothers of the wind. Rumor has it that there is a cure coming, but until the CDC can confirm it, they must be monitored closely, but safely. Actually, rumor has it they have two cures under investigation. One is aptly referred to as "springtime", but the more promising and expedient possibly can only be found by packing the shiny frozen two wheelers up in a large truck, mapping out a route with any odd number highway and heading south. Mr. Forum moderator, I sincerely thank you for your consideration and any remediation you can offer. Meantime to our frozen brothers, here is a positive thought to possibly help alleviate your intense suffering.... we down yonder tribe members are racking up the miles on our bikes, someday making your beautiful Indian motorcycles worth so much more wampum than ours, as you will have the only low mileage bikes.
Stay strong my brothers.... Stay strong.  Fang out.

Good and let you serve as an example to any upstarts wishing to rub comfortable winter riding in the faces of those up north. The North won once, do we need to do it again?

And in order to combat that, they stopped all the clocks back then.....

I am so sorry you have to suffer the cold but it's not always easy riding to work in 60 degree weather and than suffering through the low 80's on the way home. But we do it, for our wives, our children and our country, we press forward.
