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.

Today was a glorious winter day for a ride on my 2009 Harley-Davidson® Road King® and I knew that members of the local HOG® Chapter were meeting at the Harley-Davidson® Dealership for the monthly new members ride.  New members rides are an opportunity for people new to HOG to ride

New battery installed and no pressure saw Heffy and I take our time over breakfast this morning and slowly getting ready to catch up with a few locals at a pub nearby for lunch. The coffee at our accommodation was abysmal so we left a little early and headed south to Sawtell to find a coffee shop, a tripple shot flat white was in order.

After a great day's riding from home to Coffs Harbour via Gloucester, Walcha, Armidale and Dorrigo we were happy to arrive out our digs for the night expecting to meet up with some friends for a couple of quiet ones and deal with some aquisitions that were in the fridge cooling.  My Road King® though had other ideas.  The

Heffy (formerly known as JP) and I were off to Coffs Harbour for a weekend ride.  We decided to take an indirect route there and the shorter Pacific Hwy route back.  We met up at my place at 7.30am this morning and headed to the local servo for fuel and we were soon on our way through Raymond Terrace heading towards Gloucester for one

After some forced time in the garage today was the first opportunity I'd had to take my 2009 Harley-Davidson® Road King® for a test ride after the ECM was reflashed at the dealership in order to address the issue I'd experienced with the motorcycle dropping into limp home mode.  I have to say I left home gingerly,

Easter has come and gone, everyone was back at work yesterday and my Road King® was still at the dealer's.  Hopefully they were still trying to discover what was going wrong with the throttle control on it.  Finally the call came, and the issue is apparently resolved, by flashing the ECM.

I had to as the question why, given

I called the dealer on Tuesday morning to discuss the issue I had had on Monday evening with my 2009 Harley-Davidson® Road King® slipping into limp home mode while riding on the Freeway.  I was told to bring it in and they'd hook it up to their computer to see what was going on. I told them I'd really like to

Yesterday coming home from Eastern Creek my Road King® slipped into limp home mode twice.  The first time while accelerating past a semi-trailer on the F3, not much fun losing power in a 110kph speed limited area while there's a semi on your left!  Frighteningly I also had to pull across an exit off the freeway and was very

Once a year or so I like to go to an Advanced Rider Training Course, for the last couple of years I've done the Stay Upright Advance II Cornering and Braking Course.  It's really an instructor led track day and excellent for pushing the limits safely and brushing up on skills that

Tomorrow is the day we hit Eastern Creek again and so we arrived at the track nice and fresh we decided to head to the Chifley Hotel next to the track for the night.  I was heading to the Course with a mate DW who has a lovely BMW 1200 who was itching to get it going fast, last time he was at Eastern Creek he was on a 400cc Honda and his P's.
