A rare breed

Lately in Samut Prakan, a part of Bangkok we stumbled over a motorcycle, which looked a kind of strange...!

Janda

Taking a closer look it turned out to be a Janda, a Jawa with a 125cc Honda engine inside. Click into the picture to see more of this beautiful piece of junk.

 

The Cowbell

Harley has changed every single part of their motorcycles, but one thing never changed. The very

famous horn, also called cowbell can still be found on some of the 2018 big Twins.

Rauchs Café and Bar

rauchs cafe

.....is the place for the those guys, who can't leave their bike home and even ride in steady drizzle. Sure they know what to expect at Rauchs Café: the best coffee in the town of Bremen, Germany.

Lots of chrome immaculate condition, Harley Davidson FXDI35 Dyna Super Glide the 35th Anniversary Edition is a beautiful tribute to the FXE 1200 Superglide from 1971, and to the good old days, when roads where almost empty, jobs could be found wherever you wanted to stay for a while, and the price for gas was affordable. You want to see the original? On the eastern outskirts of Columbus, Ohio you will find the AMA Motorcycle Hall of Fame right next to the Highway 70. Don't miss it, as there is a lot more to look at.

What's in the make?

Find out by yourself! Where? In the squeaky clean Harley-lab of Ironwings in Loxstedt, near Bremerhaven, Northern Germany. It is one of those rare workshops you still can walk in and look around.

workshop

Gerhard is always willing to explain his works and surely will give you a hint or two, how to improve the performance of your American Iron.
 

Roadking 2003

Some images of the last and not anymore available  Roadking made 

in 2003, the 100th anniversary of Harley- Davidson. Today all new Harleys feature even an electronic fuel injection system, besides the electronic ignition. Can you imagine, how does it feel, when just one of these devices fail on the Great Northern Highway in Western Australia? No? You'd better switch to the old style carb, contacts, and the antique auto advance mechanism, or move within the range of a Harley dealer, or just stay at home.

once a slogan of Norton, today the catchword of the producer of this motorcycle. The frame is made out

of the sustainable fever tree or eucalyptus, the engine is not even a Harley-Davidson chain saw. But the time will come, when we all have to ride something like this, with a small electric engine, like the one from a lawnmower, between our legs. No more thumping with your girl on the bitch pad, no more the freedom, you once felt on a roaring Harley. Soon this will be gone forever, and a fairy tale for our grandsons and granddaughters!

Elections ahead in Germany

My choice for the upcoming elections in Germany. We need to get rid of the

Merkel

leader Merkel, as her attitude to ride out the problems of the country does not help no one, especially with all the European and global changes coming.

God didn't create metal so that man could make paper clips! ~~ Harley-Davidson Ad ~~





It depends on where you are at....


You might want to attend the Distinguished Gentlemens Ride

dgr

which happens all over the world. Last year in Hat Yai, in the very South of Thailand, the money raised, was given to a privately owned hospital, whose managers drive big cars, but deny their employees social benefits, like those given by government managed hospitals. This is probably not the ride you want to attend to.


...and in the very North of Germany, near Bremerhaven, there is the 19th seasons end

seasons end

party in Loxstedt offering beer and food in a pig stall, as well as a free campground. Most probable you will see a whole bunch of old iron. Click into the picture to see more.

For those, who are cruising or living in the South West of the U.S. there is the

Las vegas 

...,which will commence on October 5 to October 8. Lots of shows, contests, rock music and vendors expecting your presence. Go to their website by clicking into the image.
