A History Carved in Dirt

There are many truths American's hold to be self evident. In Portland, one of those truth's is that most men over the age of 45 were once flat track champions. It doesn't matter if it's the local Fire Chief, the accountant, or the homeless dude under the 405 overpass. They were all once nationally ranked flat track stars. "Not possible" we can hear you say as you read this post in marked disbelief.  How can one city be so thoroughly saturated with so many noble kings of the dirt oval? We don't have an answer - we just accept the truth in our observation. And with that truth we headed home on our freshly completed Sportster tracker - only to become hopelessly mired in I-5 traffic. And to our left rolled up a FLH shovelhead with a pilot by the name of JK. He raised the sleeve of his John Cougar'esque tee shirt to reveal his hot-shoed bicep....

We were not surprised...
