"I find that your answers are elegant if very direct. Perhaps you could work on tact, but for the most part I find that the wisdom of bikers is a very refreshing change."
Southern 7162 says:
"Harley Spirit, as long as Christian bikers exist, we know that freedom in the spirit, and freedom in society, are compatible. I don't side with outlaws but you make it clear that you don't either."
