    So here is another reason to post a photo of your Indian Motorcycle. Your Indian by a Bison - real, stuffed, statue, whatever. :cool:
    I'll start it out with mine next to a Bison made of Iron near Garyowen, Montana. :)

    So, 2 Indians by a package of bison sirloins would be good?

    Not Sure how well this qualifies but always made it a point to swing by after doing the Devils Tower Run on the way back to Sturgis .. Have been all over this country 2 wheels and 4 and never found a better Buffalo Steak yet.. Usually an 8 oz Steak is all I can possibly handle but was nothing left of their 12oz Buffalo Ribeye Steak .. If in Sturgis is well worth to swing by especially if do the Devils Tower Run .. and it's right on the way swinging back to Sturgis ..

    Is an Old Joke with me Alpal to say .. " Once you eat a Buffalo Steak will understand why the Indians were pissed when the Railroad Slaughtered them " Although not really a Joke .. To the Plains Indian Tribes Buffalo was a source of Food, Clothing, Lodging and Weaponry .. They wasted nothing ..

    Hey Bro, that's my Ancestor Peeps!!! Nah, just kidding my Indian Ancestors were from GA and AL, and they liked eating corn and venison, until Jackson's "RED-NECK" azz marched most of them wild Injuns out to OK on the Trail of Tears! Nooooo!, I'm not biter!? I hate everyone equally as much... I don't discriminate against SOME, I simply incriminate ALL!... BTW, I have had buffalo at several "Wild Game" dinners, it was smoked, and still a bit too gamey for my personal taste. ELOL! IndianMotosArt3.JPG

    Maybe I'm just so used to bison that I don't taste any gameyness. I've been using it in place of beef for about 20 years now. If I'm grillin' steaks or burgers or makin' tacos or whatever, it's bison, not beef. I don't miss the grill flare-ups from grilling beef burgers and steaks, or the cup of grease that has to be disposed of after cooking a pound of ground beef. ;)

    Fully aware of Jackson's Slaughters .. The City of Jacksonville is named after him .. Big Brave wiper out a large Seminole Village there mostly women and children .. So was no surprise to me that he was all for promoting the Trail of Tears ... What some don't realize is Davey Crockett fought this so hard he ended up losing his seat in Congress .. He might have fought with the Indians but still had a respect for them ..

    A lot of history in what you say @JayFL459.
    I'll just add this touch of humor in here.

    Sorry, Jay! I tend to digress quite a bit when I get on my ole soapbox about Jackson, the native americans, and the Trail of Tears... My Grandmother's Native people were allowed to stay in upper Alabama, but only because they sided with and supported Andrew Jackson in his battle against the "Red Sticks" Creek rebellion. They were "Poarch Creek" indians(They became hated by the other Indigenous tribes as traitors and were not really trusted by the White Settlers either). They were independently wealthy from owning farming mercantile and trading-post businesses, close to where the white settler towns were established that needed certain necessities and other goods. They had already pretty much assimilated into the new American culture and the white man's society; by becoming more civil, accepting Christianity, speaking some English, and predominantly wearing the white man's everyday clothes... They also lived in individual wooden houses and villages not in rough-log longhouses or Wigwam camps anymore... Jackson, allowed this small band of loyal american natives to stay in Alabama. So, long as they agreed to; give up all tribal/band affiliations & warlike customs, succeed all tribal land territories to the U.S./State Governments, become full fledged American Citizens, learn to speak fluent English, and agree to fully indoctrinate their children into white American Culture by sending them to special boarding schools for native american children. My grandmother and her siblings had to attend one of these special american culture indoctrination schools located in Buffalo, NY when she was a little girl back in the early 1900's! Where, she was taught; to speak only english, to abandon all her native customs and tongue, to be very ashamed of her savage indian blood, and to keep this dark fact hidden as an unspoken family secret. So, it was not until the late 1980's in America, when it started to be really in social american fashion to be something else, besides just plain European white that my Grandmother even began to talk openly, within just the family about the subject of our native american culture/indigenous roots and the "old days"... So, why are the damned illegal Mexicans, so "up in arms" about becoming; true, legal, American Citizens, or being kicked out of the US!? I mean Hell! We had to do it or face certain extinction on the "Trail of Tears" to OK or the "Badlands"... So, what's the BFD!!!?
