  7. Mike was an enigma. How many Harley riding ruffians could engage you at length in political dialogue, fully defending every aspect of their stance and without hesitation, yet never miss an opportunity to wave at you from afar, or buy you a beer and tell you how good it is to see and talk to you? Mike Farrell was that kind of guy, and never at a loss for words. He will always be remembered by all who knew him as a genuine and kind-hearted man…
