Picture of the month:


Surprises like these on the countryside don't come often. Harleys.de found this beautifully restored BSA Goldstar at GLM in Rheden, in Northern Germany. See more below.

You ain't seen nothing yet!

Just 15 miles South West of Hildesheim there is this unbelievable storage of more than 50.000 new motorcycle parts, which are mainly for English brands like BSA, Norton, and many more (Try this link to get there on Google maps). And there is more to find: folks, who dedicated their life to the restoration of classic
English and also German motorcycles.
Herby They own a neat workshop, and a "showroom" cramped with classic iron, as there are Nortons, BSA, Horex, Triumph, which are either for sale, or to be restored in original condition, or made up to the customers imaginations, though those are to be discussed with the boss Herbert Gubba called "Herby". He amassed 30 years of motorcycle knowledge and experience. Meet Herby on the Veterama  in Mannheim from October 6th to 8th this fall, or visit their Website here! The site used to feature three languages, just check the navigation in the upper left corner. The website
offfers a PDF- flyer to download with
the latest GLM has to offer. Some knowledge of German is useful, when reading the flyer, though all the staff and Herby himself do speak English very well. GLM Motorcycles is always worth a vist, do not hesitate and drop by their shop during your next trip across Germany. They are open from Tuesday to Thursday, because they need an extra long week end to roam the nearby Weserbergland with their thumping English Iron. And who can blame them? Showroom

Offroad across Central America

Truly an unforgettable adventure was the trip from La Ceiba, Honduras across Guatemala and Belize with Maya-Tours. Whoever has the chance, go for it!! You won't be disappointed, promised!

Quote of the month:

"The Buddha, the Godhead, resides quite as comfortably in the circuits of a digital computer or the gears of a cycle transmission as he does at the top of the mountain, or in the petals of a flower."

Robert M. Pirsig (Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance: An Inquiry Into Values)

Nice device

Old Harleys are precious collectors items. They are sought after like never before. The old style padlock at the lower end of the headset, and the easy to manipulate ignition switch is not a big deal for an interested thief. Both  they are not tamper-proof. If you are just over to warm your preferred peaches, and have to park your sled outside on the street, there is a solution. It is unobtrusive (without the red key) but effective. Press the red key towards the bike, turn it to the right, and remove it. The main power cable will be


interrupted, the bike will not start. Some folks call it immobilizer. This is not true though, as long there is a truck and some accomplices around. But it may help!
