The best about a Harley is the one who rides it!
Dedication that's all you need..
...and some folks out there, they just have it. They are closely associated with history, but always open for new ideas. They do not swim with the main stream, but enjoy their individual way of life. One of those guys is
Troy Nicholson 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, which are usually only 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 is does a great job, and for a very affordable price.

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 between our legs, like the one from a lawnmower. 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!
| 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,
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.
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.
The Evo of
Proud owner of
this beautiful Evo built in 1992 is one of those
guys, who won't sell their bike forever. His name
is Jens from Cuxhaven, and he loves to ride out
for that Sunday morning biker meeting at the
"Dorumer Tief". Nobody knows why Jens stepped out
of focus right before I took the picture. He was
exactly there, where you now can see those bloody
The Thailand GP
will be held in Buriram from 27 OCT - 29 OCT.
Watch it on TV is my recommendation. The money saved could be spent to help to fight against hunger in the world, which kills around 20.000 people in the world - every single day!
Avoid the highways
Going south, not
having the time to cruise all the way down from
Germany? Don't worry. If you have some cash or may
be your good old friend has some, get your bike on
a night with a hot shower and some
decent red wine. After a nights ride from Hamburg
you can go either to Verona or Lörrach
from where you can easily swing
through France and into Spain, or if you travel to
Verona, you might want to go down to the
mountainous Sicily, to grind the footpegs of
your bike. If you compare the price with the
savings you made, wasting gas on highways and an
additional overnight stay or two, it is
worthwhile, not to mention the constant rattling,
which reminds you of your sled and lets you sleep
