I got really excited when I heard about the 2013 Harley-Davidson® CVO® Road King®,  it's something I've been waiting for with baited breath for years, the opportunity to consider upgrading my well loved and well ridden 09 Road-King to something just a little bit more "special". Finally

My well worn Harley-Davidson Road Warrior textile jacket has been showing signs of decay and leaking a bit lately.  It's had a good run and seen many many k's but the time has come to replace it.

No riding the Harley-Davidson® today, it was time to work out exactly how I was going to approach the ride home.  After a post on the FarRiders forum I received some feedback and some ideas.  I also became aware of a fellow rider in Darwin Hospital after a recent encounter with a scrub bull south of Darwin.

Today I'm still in Darwin enjoying the NT HOG® Rally.  On the agenda are two guided rides where members of the local HOG Chapter take the non locals on a scenic tour.  I picked the long one to Litchfield National Park, with no idea how far it might be or what was waiting for us.  The only instruction, bring
