    Cigar, Anyone? Where's your favorite shop?

    Though not specifically Beemer related, I'm pretty sure a number of riders enjoy some of life's other fine vices. In the region east of Sacramento, there is a pretty cool cigar shop that I frequent. Good selection. Knowledgeable staff. And it is located in a small town that harkens back to those days when everyone waved at his or her neighbor. Worth a visit.

    Anywhere in Canada. You can get all sorts of real Cubans. Just don't try and bring them back to the US.

    Crossing the border is really quite amusing...... at times. Cross into the U.S. and "do you have any Cuban cigars? They are not legal here sir." (ask me how I know.... I'm in the computer somewhere); and, coming into Canada "do you have any firearms or alcohol." No mace or even an extra mini-me of alcohol will be tolerated. Former will get you charged and the latter is paying enormous tax/duty. - Bob

    Cigars? Mike's in Miami and Cigars International in PA. Order online and pick up upon visit to U.S. ( I have a U.S. address as well for shipping).

    I've only ever bought cigars in Havana. Probably why I too get asked if I have them with me when I travel to the US.

    I can't wait to retire and have a fixed income. The one I have now is always broke.

    So how do they know they are Cubans if you have no distinguishing labels on the cigars?

    If the cigar is driving a 1954 Chevy BelAir with no hood it's a dead giveaway.

    I like Federal Cigar in Portsmouth, NH.

    As an added bonus the folks at Federal like motorcycles. The photo below is of a rider in the 2003 Iron Butt Rally claiming bonus points. I doubt he got much benefit from the massage.

    Two Guys in New Hampshire and Famous Smoke Shop in Pennsylvania for mail order.

    Or, when I'm down there, a local shop- Seagars in Rio Grande, NJ

    cigars making in wisconsin

    Tobacco is still grown in Wisconsin, but I THINK it is mostly used for chew now. These pictures were taken in Platteville, Wisc. at the The Mining Museum and Rollo Jamison Museum. It will give you another perspective on what you are rolling between your fingers as you sit on the back deck with a small glass of Dr. Migllicuddy menthomintl fresh from the freezer. That's how I like any way.
