My Harley-Davidson Blog

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.

OK, I flew to Perth and that was not all roses (explanation) and I have to admit that up until last Saturday I struggled with not picking up the keys, packing the Road King® and heading west.  Anyhow

On paper riding 1600km in 24hrs doesn't seem that hard.  Many of us have done a number of 1000km days, Zanderhar and I have even done a 1200k day, so it's just another 400ks isn't it?

I arrived at the BP at Beresfield at 5.15am a little late because Zanderhar went back to sleep when I woke him up at 4.15am to get ready to leave.

Everyone knows that the stiffer frame and other changes to the 2009+ Harley-Davidson® Tourer's made them even better to ride if you like to push them through corners. Readers of this blog will have seen my exploits on the track at Eastern

Last evening I took a leisurely ride to the big smoke to meet up with some friends.  It'd been too long since I had had my 2009 Harley-Davidson Road King out and the weather was perfect.  Also in my mind was my impending attempt on the Saddlesore 1600k, so with new clear safety glasses for night riding I was keen to try

The other day while waiting for a mate to put fuel into his Harley-Davidson® CVO® Street Glide® at Gloucester a group of fellow riders asked me a few questions about the Bluetooth device attached to my helmet.  They were looking for something that

Up early in Coffs Harbour the plan today was to head south to Port Macquarie, grab some fuel and breakfast at the BP on the interchange and head west towards Wauchope.  Timmo had been in touch with she who must be obeyed and decided on an earlier arrival home rather than the joys of an east west run on the famed Oxley Highway.  Fair call.

Today was the first day of a long planned weekend trip that would include some of the best riding you can do, Waterfall Way between Armidale and Bellingen (today) and the Oxley

It's no secret that I enjoy longer rides, anything over 500k's is good, 600-700k's great.  In the last two years I've done two or three 1100-1200k days which, when talking to other riders who I meet seems to be a reasonably common occurrence for those of us who like to get around.

I've been on a couple of "Iron Butt" rides
