A record of owning My Harley-Davidson® motorcycle.  It's here for my ongoing analysis of ownership, and because my memory's rather shit. If you read it I hope you find something in it for you.

It took me longer than anticipated to get going and I didn't get away until about 6.45am. I made a note that I needed

I was heading up to Darwin on my Harley-Davidson® for the NT HOG® Rally, time was short for the trip so an IBA SaddleSore 2000 (miles) on the way there seemed in order. Translation, I needed to ride 2000 miles or 3220 kilometres in 48 hours with documentation to prove it.

Let's face it, for a touring motorcycle the headlight and auxiliary lights on the Road King aren't that great for long nights on the road.  Given my more recent need to ride at night to attend events

One of the great things about being involved in a HOG® Chapter other than riding a Harley-Davidson® with mates is having the the opportunity to pitch in and help out to make riding fun for other riders.  As a very regular Harley-Davidson rider, who fortunately only shows bad sense in smaller groups, I recently

Today I took my Harley-Davidson® Road King® on a short trip up the Pacific Hwy to check out North Coast V-Twins and hang out with a couple of the local HOG Chapter members.  I heard there was a sausage sizzle on and that's enough to get me almost anywhere!

We weren't in a rush his morning after riding 2100k's yesterday on our Harley-Davidson Road King motorcycles.  @officerhardass had stayed over to save some time and I woke Zander up, who it seems wasn't aware we'd intended to hit the road again.

Today @officerhardass (formerly known as Heffy and JP) and I took our Harley-Davidson® Road Kings® on the next logical Iron Butt Ride, a SaddleSore 2000k. 16 y.o. Zanderhar decided to come along for the 2000km+ ride that had to be completed within 24 hours as my pillion, he's tough.
