Topics I've Started
04 July 2016 - 06:55 PMSo, I've got a few different sorts of bikes right now, and as I buy and sell a few I get the opportunity to have a bit of fun on them from time to time before I sell them. One of my keepers though is the '83 GL1100 Goldwing I have that some of you have seen. I love riding it. The style of riding it evokes. The seating position. The fact its an old bike with no mod cons on it. It all makes up for it to be an enjoyable cruising bike, where there is no rush to get anywhere. Where you can just get out and ride relaxed rather than chasing every bend.
So on that note, I have been considering a Harley. I like the custom / cafe racer / brat / bobber style bikes. Ones that aren't just a straight out of the showroom bike, but which are interesting to look at. So I have been considering getting a custom Harley. Not an Orange County Choppers style thing, but a "lowrider" (I think thats what you call the style) or bobber.
What are peoples experiences of Harley's as I know there are a few on here that have had them in the past?
Please dont bore us with the usual Harley / tractor jokes etc as we've heard them all before and I dont wont to incite a riot :popcorn:
12 June 2016 - 07:45 PMNext year it will be 5 years since a few of us from here did a 7 day tour of Scotland, so I am looking to plan another Scotland tour for next year. I want to do a steadier paced tour taking more time to stop and take scenery and attractions in rather than just seeing them zoom bye while enjoying the quality roads. Also want to make it an Island hopping tour up the west coast (east and north east were the worst parts last time).
So does anyone have any recommendations of islands / places we should visit up the west coast, and any ferries to use or avoid?
Thinking of probably going late May / early June 2017 if that makes a difference to which places will be good or bad to visit.
