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 the 2011 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.







Picture of the month:

There she is. Somebody must have stretched her frame to fit the Blockhead inside. A barrel type oil tank, a shortened mudguard, a gas tank, which might take you to the next bakery and back on an early Sunday morning,

bobber

complete the bobber style bike. The bike was discovered in Hannover, in Northern Germany. The owner though was out of sight, therefore no questions could be asked about his philosophy, or why he is in love with gas stations.

 

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.

Georgia Overdrive?

When you listen to the song "Six days on the road.." by Dave Dudley, you can hear him singing: "...I got ten forward gears, and a Georgia overdrive." But, what the hell is a Georgia Overdrive? Harleys.de lately found out: When you start to go downhill with your vehicle, and disengage the gear into neutral, to go faster just by rolling. Among truckers this is called a Georgia Overdrive. If you want to look for other American slang words you might not understand, have a look at the urban dictionary.

Roadking 2003

Some images of the last and not anymore available  Roadking made 

roadking

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 old style auto advance mechanism, or move within the range of a Harley dealer, or just stay at home.



They'll never die

Harleys.de found this beauty in Mountain View, Callifornia. It is an

ceciliaway

almost orignal 1975 Superglide. The speedo and rev counter look like being taken from a sportster, the seat is from Corbin. As the sticker on the license plate looks  expired, the plate was edited in the big picture. Just click into the small one.

Quote of the month

"If I had wanted to make a life long career out of working with the mentally retarded, I would have either gone into Special Ed or opened up a Harley-Davidson dealership..."  - Christopher T. Shields (Black Echo)

It depends on where you are at....

...but if you are in Thailand here is a party to ride to. It is located a couple of miles outside of Khon Kaen.

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.
