The last few weekends have been full of family commitments and finally, despite the forecast 37 degrees, I was determined to go for a ride this morning and hopefully beat the worst of the heat.  My son was keen and I had no plans with respect to a destination.  I was aware that the local HOG chapter had a three day ride organised, that

Given the soaring midday/afternoon temperatures of late we decided to go for a ride and grab some breakfast.  Once again my son pillioned and my wife and daughters travelled conservatively in my wife's car. We decided to head to The Entrance on the Central Coast, it's close enough to get to before the kids start eating their own arms but far

The weather was a few degrees cooler than the last couple of days and after the success of the Tea Gardens lunch with the family a last minute decision was made to head off for lunch again, this time motoring towards the vineyards. 

My son chose the bike again so we geared up and away we went.  First thing, 13.53 litres of premium

After spending Christmas overseas with the family I was looking forward to getting back on the Road King after a rideless 8 days. Unpacking, restocking and general post trip duties completed my wife suggested that we all go somewhere for lunch, three in the car and two on the bike. Sounded a good idea to me, the outing ticked a number of boxes,

Out for Sunday morning breakfast with the family today.  It was a lovely day so my son and I took the bike in and my wife took the girls in by car.  Later in the day we dropped off Christmas presents to friends and relos.  Lucky the Road King has plenty of storage.  Deliveries are a little painful on the bike, but it's the

Things are hotting up at work with the lead up to the Christmas break, lots to do before the office closure. An opportunity for a social morning ride arose with Roy P and Max so it was up very early to take care of some work stuff that I've been struggling to get to because of a string of interruptions and decisions required.

I managed to

Came home for lunch today, decided to take the Road King back to work.  The weather was perfect, the bike was sparkling after Sunday's efforts, it just had to be ridden!  On arrival the proprietor of a neighbouring business came over for a chat and a good look at the Harley.  Seems like lots of people would like to have one.

He

We left Rosehill in the rain and headed out on the M4 to Oran Park.  The rain didn't slow but fortunately the newly aquired wet weather gear kept us comfy.  It took a little longer than expected to get there but we arrived close enough on time, among the last two or three.

Getting off the bike my son and I were pretty excited,

After the disappointment of arriving at Oran Park and not getting to ride around it, it was time to throw a leg over the blue and silver beast and head back home.  There was an opportunity to deliver my son to my wife who was in Sydney shopping if he didn't want to continue to brave the weather on the back of the bike but there was no question

After buying up on wet weather gear and hanging  around waiting for a weather miracle (that didn't come) it was time to leave for Sydney.  I decided to forego the wet weather gear for now, there was a bit of mist around but it wasn't really raining.  Off we went and 10k's from home, we rode through a shower.  No probs, not too
