Any Harley Riders
« on: February 23, 2006, 08:23:22 PM »
I'm just wondering how many woodsman ride Harleys ;D.  I have a Road King Classic which I ride to Sturgis.  All my friends here haul theirs on trailers

17 years now...I had a 2000 Road King Classic, though it would be my last bike, until Mrs. Captain announced she wanted to go back to college.

Now with the youngster around, I'm back on a Sportster, it is a 1200 Sportster Sport.  Fun around town, beats me up in under 2 hours on the big stretches.  Another Road King someday....

This is my 1974 Harley Sportster that I might trade for one of those Automatic Petersons but I'd want some boot. :D :D :D :D

In a previous job I ended up at the Hecate Inn on the Queen Charlotte Islands out in the Pacific Ocean and the owner was a man from Millville, NB. He drove out there is the 50's on a motorbike, but I can't remember what model or make of the bike. I never asked the old feller why he ended up there, but I don't think it was a step up in the world. ;D Total isolation out there. I was web surfin some real estate and found he had the place for sale a year ago or so. It was a nice motel with kitchenette and laundry service, $60/night I think.
Move'n on.

I had  1969 XLCH for years but traded it a couple of years ago for a 1929 model A pick-up seemed more practical at the time, but that stays in the garage too ! Man this employment thing sure cuts into my time !

I was a biker Babe in my day....(not so long ago, seems only yesterday) I rode many, many, many hours and miles on the back of a '47 Knucklehead ( with no sissy bar) my butt was killing me, my back was aching me....but I sure did look pretty....tee hee!

If you keep any back issues of "In the wind magazine" around 1984 I had my picture featured. I was on the back of the Knucklehead and our friends were beside us on his '56 Pan head...we were riding at Laconia NH Bike week.

It was a lot of fun....THOSE WERE THE DAYS!!

1993 Moto Guzzi California III. I also ride my hubby's 2004 BMW R1200CL occaisionally too.

Snow has never detered me from getting on a bike. Leaves and sand - that's a pain. If I never rode when it snowed I wouldn't get much ridin' in.

Been keeping my rubber side down, sunny side up for 17 years now. (Man, has it really been that long?) Not a big fan of riding b***h like blueox, but I'd be happy to take a passenger any day.

I couldn't choose to own a bike that doesn't start below 40 and I get enough flack from Mr. BMW for my Italian stallion dripping on the garage floor. No Harleys here (except I owned the pinball machine for a few years). But I'll ride wid ya any day.

Current bike is a Harley Heritage Softail Classic ('97 vintage).  Went to Sturgis on it in 99, and just got back from Bike Week in Daytona.  Here is one of my Sturgis trip pix:




Previous bikes have been Honda's - 750 Super Sport, CX500 Turbo, and my first bike was a 175 back in 1975.  Somewhere I've got a photo of me riding a wheelie on the turbo - will have to see if I can dig it up.

My wife rides a Honda Shadow (when she's not riding horses).

Tom's 3638D Baker band mill
and a mix of log handling heavy equipment.

NO,--But I wish, when my Mum was alive she said "Richard, I do not want you to buy a motorbike---promise"?--yes Mum, she passed away 6 years ago.  THEN, my younger brother turns up with a 2003 Softail, I said to him, Brother, did Mum ask you NOT to buy a bike?--his reply was YES, BUT, I looked up and said, Mum, can I buy a Harley?, she said yes, and tell Richard he can too

Brother did a Harley ride in USA late last year and showed me the photo's and a photo of his new 2005 Harley which he purchased and I was green with envy

DO I defy my Mum??, or is brother telling me a porky?--or should I buy a 50cc Suzuki and work my way up?

hey dundee,

My first bike was an 80cc Suzuki in 1969. My last road bike was a Moto Guzzi that I thought was going to last me the rest of my life. It nearly did when I went into a switchback on a mountain road too fast and totalled it against a rock wall. That broke both my wrist as I bent the handlebars. And cracked some ribs as I caved in the gas tank with my chest. first bike I ever totalled.  :( I was a mess for a long time after that. Last two bikes were Bulatacos. The Frontera did a flip forward one night when the front brake locked up. During one of the somersaults, it came down on an ankle and broke that. Thought that the Sherpa trials bike was all that I could ride but wrist and ankles hurt too much.  :D Not to mention kicking that DanG Bul. I wonder if I'm old enough to have enough sense to ride sensibly. Maybe.  ;D

Currently, I'm rebuilding my Volvo P1800E that I parked in 1978 because I had so many tickets that everytime I turned around the state was telling me to mail in my license. I'm a lot smarter now.  :)
