You need all the feedback you can get. Why block one of the most important inputs you have ... if you want to be safe.
Your choice.

When I ran this film, I right away nabbed the movie poster. The guy who runs the barber shop next to our theater really wanted it because he owns an older Indian, but I'm not going to budge.

"Beginning in the 2009 model year, Indian may reintroduce "Scout" and "Spirit" models. " Booo! They should consider making their entry level models and price point models first to gain market share and get as many Indian motorcycles on the road IMO. Mike.
