They're slim & slippery, too--- I have one & have almost slid off a couple of times after blasting away from a light. I think that's why naughas in the wild are hard to catch.

Just got my copy--- great issue. Thanks for the heads up! Barn find Vincent on the cover, the XLRTT story, plus a Knucklehead. Interesting that none of the Harleys are mentioned on the cover....
