After the ride of the day my son surprised me with a request to take him to a birthday party he was going to later in the day on the bike.  Not hard to work out why, it's great to know that he thinks fanging around on the back of the old Harley with his dad would look cool to his mates.

How could I refuse?

Job done, and yet

Saturday morning 7am, not a cloud in the sky.  Off for a quick 5k walk with my wife to debrief the week and a couple of clouds start to appear, but I'm really excited by the beautiful morning and the prospect of getting out on the Road King.  I had a couple of things to drop off and by 9am the couple of clouds had closed in to a threatening

Had to go home today to do some work and have some lunch.  It was a beautiful day and I hadn't had a chance to do anything but walk past the bike all week so I decided to take the Harley back to work instead of the car.  A short ride but definitely worth firing it up for the five minute trip each way.  I need to remember the security

Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, bright sunny days.  Friday night a huge thunderstorm, Saturday morning, the second weekend opportunity to ride my Road King and from 7am it pissed down until after lunch.  I was wondering if I was ever going to get a nice day for a ride. When the sun poked its head out my wife suggested I might like to go

Today the weather was beautiful, typical mid week day it seems.  Unusually, it wasn't up to me to get the kids to school and I had an 8.30am breakfast meeting at one of our business' partners offices who were presenting on some technology of interest.

I couldn't resist the urge to ride the Road King to the meeting.  Opportunities

I have a 10 year old Motorcyle, in my book a classic.  It looks in great condition but you never really know.  I decided to be prudent for safety and for peace of mind and have it fully serviced and checked right over to set a benchmark and gather information about when things might need doing, time between services and whether there was

Bugger! Sunday morning and it's raining again.  Thick clouds abound and no sign of the sun peeking through anywhere.  We went about our usual Sunday routine with me peering skywards at every opportunity.  My son was keen to get out on the bike again after his first pillion experience the day before.

4pm saw a break in the

After the first shopping trip, I was happy that my son had a helmet and gloves.  That, in my mind, was enough to get him started.  My wife didn't agree so she and I went back to the Big Bike Shop to look for a Jacket for him and she also wanted to see what the ladies Harley Davidson fashion had in store for her.

There was a ladies

Today is the first Saturday that my new to me Harley-Davidson was at home available to ride.  It was clear that my son wanted to be involved so off we went to the Big Bike Shop to look for gloves and a helmet. Gloves were easy, a pair of light weight leatheries for $49.95.  He had a particular taste for a helmet desingn, "I don't

After the excitement of bringing the Harley-Davidson home I was looking forward to getting on it and going for a ride.  With his new helmet and jacket so was my son.  Happy in the knowledge that I wasn't going to get out by myself I was looking forward to sharing his first outing on a motorcyle, and a Harley Davidson to boot!

After
