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.

Sadly I don't seem to be getting the Road King, or my other bikes,  out of the shed as much as I'd like lately. 75,000kms on the clock and it's still going strong though. However it was time to blow the cobwebs out of it and the others so I decided to do a 3 day ride at Iron Butt pace on a different bike each day.  My Harley-Davidson

The alarm went off at 3.15am and my get out of the motel routine kicked and I was out the door with a docket at the Caltex at 4.01am and a witness signature.  It was quite cool so the heated vest was turned on and away I went.  Yeah yeah, heated vest, what a pussy. Let me tell you, if you are going to

I was in Cairns at the National HOG Rally and I needed to get home. The HOG Rally was fun but didn't leave me in an appropriate condition to take on another 2300ks in one day trip so I left Cairns before lunch on Sunday and rode down the Bruce Hwy to Mackay, which is conveniently located 1621kms from home snd

"You can't ride to Cairns in a day from Newcastle" "No you say? Lets see."  Sadly I didn't have time to take any pictures, but the ride is documented and witnessed as per IBA rules. Here we go....off to the 2014 National HOG Rally.

Central and Northern Queensland isn't really my favourite place

JP and I are now Road Captains of our local HOG® Chapter and a while back we mentioned we were going to do an Iron Butt SS1600K for a bit of fun  and were happy to take a long anyone who might like to have a crack but weren't sure how to do it (other than just getting on a bike and riding 1610ks).  We got two starters

An increasingly busy life, an in part a selection of other bikes to ride,  has seen my Harley-Davidson® Road King® gathering a little too much dust in the garage for the last 5 weeks or so, but today I was down to lead a local HOG Chapter new members ride and I was really looking forward to it.  The first

Not again! I knew I was tired last night but once again I managed to stuff up setting the alarm properly, but this morning I couldn't even work out what I did wrong. Once through the routine of packing the Harley-Davidson® I returned to the Shell Broken Hill for a docket. This morning even later at 6.42am with further

I woke up at 5.18am with a start.  I had forgotten to change the day on my iPhone's alarm with the obvious result. I realised that any hope for a Centreline 36 was now gone, (insert minor profanity here).  With the standard breakfast taken, the Harley-Davidson packed I returned to the BP Alice City and got a docket stamped

Having abandoned the idea of trying for a BB2500k IBA ride today I was off for a sub 1500k ride on my Harley-Davidson® Road King® from Darwin to Alice Springs. So I was up at 3.30am, had the obligatory oats, sultanas and nuts for breakfast in my room and set about packing the bike.
