Harley in Bruges

In Bruges. Not only the temporary hideout for Ken and Ray, but also the place where this beautiful 883 Sportster has its home. Just replacing the front wheel with a spoked one, led to a much better look. Our correspondent AJS refused to hand out the photos of the bike showing the female owner. He must have had his reasons.

About 140 miles north of the Harley Davidson factory in Wisconsin, you will find Brian's shop. Brian sells primarily Harley-Davidson motorcycles, which can be damaged due to a falling branch of a tree, or an accident. Thus these bikes are inexpensive and Brian will tell you, what do you have to do, to fix it. Import duties and taxes can be saved and you finally end up with a sound ride for the price you can afford. Brian ships worldwide.

By David Edwards  Nick Roskelley calls his creation the “Harleyton 45” a rolling amalgamation consisting of a 45-cubic-inch (750cc) Harley-Davidson flathead V-twin housed in a 1960s Norton Featherbed frame. The engine, of 1942 vintage, was originally found in a WLC model, the Canadian-spec army bike, one of 90,000 military motorcycles Harley built during the war. An odd pairing of motor and frame, for which Nick takes no credit. He purchased the rolling chassis for the princely sum of $2000 just before the owner was about to turn it into a chopper, perish the thought. To date, he’s laid out a total of less than $3500 in bringing the bike to the condition you see it here. That doesn’t include numerous trips to the scrap bin for parts and many late nights in his small workshop persuading them to fit.

Don't you dare

This warning "Don't ride without a helmet!" was found
in Hat Yai in the very South of Thailand.

warning

Your fine will be 200 THB or converted, just 6 Dollar. You can even get away with less, if you do not insist on a receipt. This kind of law enforcement leads, among other things, to a death toll on the roads of Thailand of 25.000 per year (source WHO). To understand these numbers you should know that Thailand launches Traffic Safety Campaigns from time to time. Therefore these important rules will be strictly enforced

1. For safety reasons, not more than six cars/motorcycles may drive into an intersection and cross it, after the red traffic light has been turned on. The number for Bangkok is reduced to three.

2. STOP-signs may only be neglected with the hazard lights on. This will warn other road users and explain the urgency of the mission of the vehicle crossing.

3. Mobile phones may only be used while driving, if the car is equipped with tinted windscreens. This will save the driver from receiving a warning.

4. Turn signals should be switched on in either direction at all times. This is to make the following driver guess, if you will proceed straight, or if you may make a turn. This situation will strengthen the alertness of the driver behind.

5. The use of rear mirrors is only permitted to check and redo your lipstick, or to squeeze out pimples. Those actions will prevent that you actively participate in the traffic, which is boring anyway.

6. High beams and fog lights should be switched on at all times, as the driver coming from the other direction will be blinded, and must slow down or even stop. This measurement will help drivers coming from opposite directions to pass each other at slow speeds.

7. Remaining tire pressure gauges at gas stations are to be removed. This will ensure, that the tires of vehicles will always be filled up to a the maximum pressure the air compressor can produce, which is about 80 psi. With those tires it is hardly possible to exceed the legal speed limit of 90Km/h, as the tires might explode up and can cause severe damage to vehicle and driver.

8. Minibuses are to be stripped of all safety belts or make them unusable. This eases the removal from corpses out of a wreck.

9. Imported cars, like Mercedes, Audi and such, have a "built in" right of way, because there is a great chance, that a member of the Royal Thai Police is on his way, to enforce these important rules.
