1937 Harley Davidson Knucklehead

Well. . . not a bicycle but a very beautiful 2 wheel machine.
While on the road, we find ourselves staying with friends and family and this time we stayed with Curtis's cousin who happens to be the proud owner of a 1937 Knucklehead, along with a lovely dog, Maddy, and cat. After taking a couple pictures of it in the garage, he decided to pull it out and do some technical maneuvers around the yard. Seeing him navigate at such slow speeds, doing tight turns on varied terrain with a foot clutch nonetheless, I realized I was watching someone that was in tune with his machine. It reminded me of technical bike riding, where bicyclists ride at very slow speeds to traverse over logs, rocks and other obstacles, not allowing the rider's foot to touch the ground.
