Today was the 2011 Newcastle Bikers Toy Run.  My eldest daughter Emlem was keen to join in and we'd organised to catch up with a mate and his wife for coffee and the ride to the start point of the Toy Run, Stockton.  After a couple of caffeine shots we were on our way with groups of motorcycles heading in from all directions merging into

OK, I flew to Perth and that was not all roses (explanation) and I have to admit that up until last Saturday I struggled with not picking up the keys, packing the Road King® and heading west.  Anyhow

On paper riding 1600km in 24hrs doesn't seem that hard.  Many of us have done a number of 1000km days, Zanderhar and I have even done a 1200k day, so it's just another 400ks isn't it?

I arrived at the BP at Beresfield at 5.15am a little late because Zanderhar went back to sleep when I woke him up at 4.15am to get ready to leave.

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

Up early in Coffs Harbour the plan today was to head south to Port Macquarie, grab some fuel and breakfast at the BP on the interchange and head west towards Wauchope.  Timmo had been in touch with she who must be obeyed and decided on an earlier arrival home rather than the joys of an east west run on the famed Oxley Highway.  Fair call.

Today was a glorious winter day for a ride on my 2009 Harley-Davidson® Road King® and I knew that members of the local HOG® Chapter were meeting at the Harley-Davidson® Dealership for the monthly new members ride.  New members rides are an opportunity for people new to HOG to ride

New battery installed and no pressure saw Heffy and I take our time over breakfast this morning and slowly getting ready to catch up with a few locals at a pub nearby for lunch. The coffee at our accommodation was abysmal so we left a little early and headed south to Sawtell to find a coffee shop, a tripple shot flat white was in order.

Heffy (formerly known as JP) and I were off to Coffs Harbour for a weekend ride.  We decided to take an indirect route there and the shorter Pacific Hwy route back.  We met up at my place at 7.30am this morning and headed to the local servo for fuel and we were soon on our way through Raymond Terrace heading towards Gloucester for one

After some forced time in the garage today was the first opportunity I'd had to take my 2009 Harley-Davidson® Road King® for a test ride after the ECM was reflashed at the dealership in order to address the issue I'd experienced with the motorcycle dropping into limp home mode.  I have to say I left home gingerly,
