I took the Harley for 90 or so k's on Sunday and while fuelling up about half way around noticed the smell of burning oil and saw that it was once again coming from the hot bracket.  I crossed my fingers and assumed that it may have been residue from the gasket replacement and when I arrived home that was sort of confirmed as there wasn't

While trawling around the internet a while back I read a review online at Road Rider Magazine reviewing wet weather  motorcycle gloves.  I have to say that I've never properly considered the "waterproofness" of motorcycle

I've been hanging out for a break in the weather so I could get the Harley Davidson out of the dark and clock up some k's.  With fine-ish weather being forecast for the long weekend a mate of mine (Kel Bear) suggested that we try for today.  I washed and polished my Road King yesterday so it was sure to get wet at some stage during

I noticed the local HOG Chapter put up their new website today.  It's very a fancy new site and when looking at the home page I saw my luverly Harley Davidson Road King squirrelled away in the picture up the back.

Today was the local HOG Chapter's 20th Anniversary Ride and Zanderhar and I were champing at the bit to  get among a group of Harley Davidsons and because of the special occasion we thought that there would be a reasonably large contingent.
