some folks out there, they just have it. They are
closely associated with history, though always open
for new ideas. They stand out from the masses, and
enjoy their individual way of life. One of those
guys is living in Haltom City, near Fort Worth,
Texas. He is working on Harleys for more than 30
years. He despises the clinical hygiene of those
licensed dealers and their prices, usually being
charged in the houses of pleasure. With his friendly
attitude and his knowledge, he will convince you to
leave your bike there for that little extra service
or repair job. You won't be disappointed. He does
excellent work, and for a very affordable price.

The thrill is gone.
Almost 50 years have passed after the movie "Easy
Rider". This era finally is over, though some guys
still think it will last forever. Meanwhile the
older Harley dudes dwindle; some of them keep their
sled in shape and take it out for that sunny
afternoon ride to their favorite bar. The once open
roads are now crowded with cars, and jammed with
traffic signs. Your cornering abilities are
restricted by speed limits, and the price for gas
skyrocketed. Decent riding is only possible in the
very early morning hours during the summer or in
uninhabited areas, which are hard to find.
Today there is Sturgis and Daytona, as well as other
suspicious events with thousands of merchandise
maniacs. Marketing specialists are ruling the scene.
Under the pretence of helping, charity runs
primarily became serious businesses. Titties and
beer is the motto of the motorcycling masses.
Apparel and accessories substitute the irreplaceable
spirits of the good old days.
But there are still some small rallies around, which
are not published or commercialized and only known
to a handful of fabulous fellows with their
motorcycles. Just to name one, there is the Whitsun
rally to Terschelling, one of the beautiful West
Frisian Islands just off the coast of Holland. On
site you won't find a burning Japanese motorcycle on
a lamppost or the smell of a dull burnout, but a
bunch of classic iron, as well as a lot of
experience and helping hands when needed. Chocomel
and beer will be available.
Nevertheless, with this website we try to please
those downright dudes who still ride their Harleys
and uphold the spirits of sharing and hospitality.
And when you feel like taking your sled out to ride
across Europe, to enjoy its different cultures and
beautiful landscapes, like the Ardennes, the
Asturias, the small winding roads through the
Sicilian mountains, check out the local weather
forecasts, and don't get caught in the rain.
