    dieselgman now on here and on imc. Maybe I can have more fun here without being bombarded as well as disrespected by the commercial interests... I hope! Who I am? Indian owner/rider/enthusiast. Also a technical whiz on most everything motorcycle from over 55 years experience as a wrench and rider.

    By way of intro, for those who don't know me, I am a relative newcomer to the Indian world. However I have jumped in with both feet and have started up a small business rebuilding salvage Indian bikes, repairing others, learning everything I can. No one has a more thorough knowledge and understanding of the mechanics on these bikes, I have hand built a couple dozen of them. Many built from scratch just by purchasing spare parts, many recovered from wreck damages. I have lifetime skills in almost everything mechanical and automotive including engine/transmission/body work and so on. I run a diesel engine parts and manufacturing entity. I am in the process now of learning the computer intricacies on the Indians and how the various electronic things interact and function. I learn a lot from all of the problem/remedy reports on these forums and look forward to settling somewhere stable. Thanks for having me!

    Welcome to the forum, @dieselgman. I made the switch not so long ago and have never looked back. Hope you like it here.

    As a @dieselgman customer, I can confirm his mechanical skills and love for our bikes. We've ridden together and has also worked on my beloved '14 Chieftain. Quality individual on all levels.

    Looking forward to having another wrench around. Between @theMucker , @Glenn Greenlee , @Dadawada and the rest of us with casual knowledge, the technical discussions are only going to get better.

    The farmers in western Kansas always told me, "More snow - better wheat". Natures fertilizer.

    Winter wheat crop is somewhat dependent on a winter snow cover for protection and for ground moisture content.

    Welcome from Sarasota where it's now a Freezing 56. Maybe I need to think about going further south.

    Craig is also a little bit miffed about the changes at the other site, I bet he could be a convert if he saw a value in it.
