    You know I think this is real good. There are so many people who deserve this. I know one in particular and I hope one day he gets his just due. Burt Cummings of Cummings Harley Davidson in Burton Mi. He is gone now but has left a great legacy behind. He started with his Harley store in 1949 and was not only a great racer himself but buy sponsoring National winners such as the likes of Jay Springsteen, Scott Parker and a host of other National champions. I hope one day they will at least consider him. If you go to the Harley web and look up Cummings HD click on the link about Burt and you can read just a small part of what this man has contributed to Harley Davidson and the would of motorcycle racing.
