I have to admit that a lot of what I didn’t like about Harleys I have accepted on my own bikes: the excessively gaudy chrome being the main thing that put me off a cruiser. Mostly however, it is the price tag. I bought a bike I consider as good to ride for half the price. It is really good to get another non-Harley rider’s perspective.

About Uisce úr

Though I am old with wandering Through hollow lands and hilly lands, I will find out where she has gone, And kiss her lips and take her hands; And walk among long dappled grass, And pluck till time and times are done, The silver apples of the moon, The golden apples of the sun.

    Cheers Dev, I wish it was a world trip. I am probably going to be here in Katanning until I drop, and only my holidays are spent on travel. Mind you, I saw a lot of the world while I was working with former employers, so I guess I am luckier than most.

    Hi Alan
    Tickled pink that you are having such a grouse world trip. What is the motorcycle you chose for your around Alaska etc? I gather the Harley Davidson cruiser was not the pick.Lol. Been really interested with the blogs you have posted, and I have received.. Safe traveling mate.

    I strongly resent the “wanna-be” epithet. My bike just wants to be a cruiser. Which she is. She has no aspirations of being mistaken for an overpriced, less well-handling, machismo and testosterone infused competitor, no matter how iconic it may be.

    There are 4 Harley riders in town, none of them have been able to join me for a ride as they are all fixing their bikes. Last time Roy took his out the tail light fell off.

    If you have to have explained to you why a wanna-be is not a Harley then there is no point explaining .
