After a quick dry off, a quick change and a small break in the weather we were back on the Harley's heading to Marborough (wet weather gear on).  Astoundingly on the way in we rode through an area where large hail stones were piled up on the sides of the roads and the trees had been hit so hard small branches and leaves littered the roadway.

The new rattle in the Harley had been causing me some concern so we were heading to Melbourne to get it checked out.  We were only about 160k's away and were looking at trying to get there by 10am so we could make it back for the afternoon's festivities at the Rally.

The route took us towards Bendigo and then a lefty towards the city.

One day to go before the trip to Victoria and my 09 Harley Davidson Road King was at the Harley Guru's getting the Phase II 103 kit w/ Super Tuner tuned up to the max on the dyno. The local dealer had put a standard mapping into it that I'd been riding around on feeling very pleased for 500k's or so, I was interested to see what difference, if any,

I dropped my '09 Harley Road King off at the local dealership today to get the oil change required after nearly 500k's of running in the Phase II 103 Kit engine upgrade and some warranty work looked at.  

During the engine upgrade they noted that one of the spark plug cables was split, unfortunately that hadn't arrived (none in

I had to clock up 400 or so k's today so I could take my Harley Road King into the dealership on Tuesday to get the post Screamin Eagle Phase II 103 Kit upgrade oil change.  I had some things to do first and my wife wasn't too keen on seeing me leave for the whole day so I came up with a plan, we'd do lunch in the middle.  So off I went

I dropped into the local Harley Davidson dealership today to pick up the box of parts they took off my Road King when they fitted the Screamin' Eagle Stage II 103 Kit and the Super Tuner. The first thing

Ok, despite the slight debacle getting it fitted, what's my opinion of the Screamin' Eagle Street Legal Big Bore Stage II Kit for EFI Models - 103 Cubic Inches (to give it it's full name in the 2010 Harley Davidson Screamin' Eagle parts manual)........ I love it!

I already had Vance

I'm a consumer, one of the most fun things about owning a Harley Davidson, other than riding it, is making it my own. Brings back memories of th '70s when buying a plastic louvre for the rear windshield of my HG Holden was the epitome of customisation... anyway, I digress.

A couple of weeks ago I decided that after only 13,000k's or so it

Thinking of the year ahead on the first, rather dull weather wise, day of it prompted me to start the year with a ride.  It's been more than three weeks since my last ride, the Toy Run, and the Harley was getting dusty.  The family were busy playing with Christmas gifts and on Facebook so I took the opportunity to gear up and without
