On the last leg of our recent Bun Burner 2500 my Harley-Davidson® Road King® passed the 50,000 kilometre mark

Up early this morning and happily met by a beautiful day, hardly a cloud in the sky.  Looking out of the windows in the Rydges I could see the area the campers who were attending the rally were set up.  I opened to door to the balcony and my first thought was ")I&* it's cold!".  The door was shut quickly and Zander and

It's not all that often you happen across people who like to push the envelope and tackle things like an IBA Ironbutt ride but since Zander and I with Heffy and a few mates took one on late last year we've tended to be more aware of others who have done it.  Over the last couple of months while mixing it with my non-local HOG friends I

In October last year I did my first IBA SS1600 on my Harley-Davidson® Road King®.  During the trip and after it the only really annoying side effect of the 19 hour ironbutt ride

OK, my Harley-Davidson Road King stayed parked again today so here's a quick run down of the fun at Phillip Island for posterity.

  • Up before dawn, 14k run
  • Breakfast, clean up and on the 8.30 shuttle to the track
  • Walked the southern end of the track this morning, it's further and after the run I didn't

OK, World Superbikes doesn't have much to do with Harley-Davidson or my Road King.  There weren't any out on the track and not all that many parked around the track.  So I'm going to brush over today and throw up the photos so I can remember being there.  The main point is though that we had a ball and the Advantage Plus package allowed

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

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

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
