Nice bike

One of those customized Harleys we have not seen around for a long time, is the bike of Marcy of Delmenhorst.

It features a silver dollar on the timing cover, and has some more to show. Detailed pictures in their original size can be looked at by clicking into the silver dollar. Have fun.



They will not do it again.

Due to the Corona crisis the Harley Days of Hamburg are being cancelled for this year. No dentists and Lawyers will show off their shiny sleds. Buttons, badges and apparel will not be on sale. The spirit of the freedom on two wheels, which we all enjoy so much, will not disappear in the exhaust fumes of 8.000 Harley riders. No riders will follow their leaders like lemmings, as the parade will not commence. If you suffer from an inferiority complex or need to brush up your ego, you have to find a different venue to go to.


Quote of the month:

Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming, 'Wow! What a Ride!  - Hunter S. Thompson

shirtdesign Ban

Way down in the very South of Thailand one can find some interesting folks, like the Harley enthusiast and artist named Ban.  He runs a successful T-Shirt business featuring his own individual designs. Harleys.de met him during the Big-Bike Fair in Khlong Hae. His ride is a single seated 883 cc 2010 Sportster. As a father of four kids, he is very busy to keep his shop running. Harleys.de
asked him, how he manages to do his art work as well: "From time to time I need to get away from it all. I then enjoy riding the countryside with the thunder between my legs. These are the moments to relax and to reflect. Within these brief periods, new ideas come to my mind. Unique, distinct designs enter my brain cells. On my way back home the visual realisation begins, and right after my arrival, I will sit at the desk and do my first sketches. The Sportster not only gives me the riding pleasure, it is also an indispensable utensil for my art work. Unfortunately the investment in inspirational tools cannot be deducted from my taxes."

AMA Motorcycle Hall of Fame

Due to Covid-19 and in light of Ohio Governor Mike Dewine’s recommendations for all non essential businesses, the AMA Motorcycle Hall of Fame is closed to the public at this time. They will reopen as soon as possible.

This beauty, the rare '71 HD Super Glide with that boat tail fender
is one of their classics and on
display at their showroom. They normally are open every day from 9 am to 5 pm.
Check out their website at  http://www.motorcyclemuseum.org/
for all details. Whenever you are
within a range of - let's say 1500
miles, it is definitely worth the side
trip (Photo courtesy and copyright

Seen in Ban Phru

This wonderful road sign is located in a suburb of Hat Yai. It reminds you, to speed up your vehicle,

road sign
to ensure, that you make it over the rails in time, and BEFORE the locomotive crosses the street.

 

Who is riding our shit?

A good question to ask. Ray, the 77 year old shop owner of 45s Forever has the answer: " Those folks, who want true reliability, they have their ride done by us." He is proud, that none of his customers came back

with a complaint during his career. For more than 40 years he runs this business together with his son Roman and his brother George. 45s forever is located on Berryessa Road in San Jose, CA.
