Reminiscent of an episode as a kid. We were snowed in at my grandparents farm on Lake Michigan and got to see what "lake effects" snow really was. I remember my brother and I being lowered from a bedroom window to shovel our way to the front door and dig it out so the grownups could get at the tractors with buckets on the front. One of them, a big old rusty thing with iron lug wheels, was parked right next to the front door in anticipation of the snow. It was completely buried. We had to poke around with the shovels to find it and dig it out.
Of course, it was a hand crank. It took them hours to get it started, once it was uncovered.
A motorcycle is like a cast iron skillet, it mellows with age, wash it and you destroy years of seasoning!
