1930s Harley Davidson as a Winter Ride

At the gas station today I saw another bike although the season has already closed because of subfreezing temperatures.

When I came back from the cashier I saw the other rider looking at my new winter tires. We had a quick chat, he shared some information on where to get winter tires.

He was riding a 1930s Harley Davidson. He had off road style spiked tires on his bike. He told me he rides the bike every winter – “These 1930s bikes are made for the winter”. Then he kick started the motorcycle and roared off into the darkness. Oh yeah!

I am sorry for not taking a photo.

(Turns out it was a 1937 Harley Davidson 1200U. And I thought I have an old bike, it being a 2000 model.)
