One FXR 1340 HD while involved with club, hanged around with it, prospected on it, still got it.
Before that a n HD Evo chop wot i built from a new engine and a Cobra frame upwards. Before that a grett long rigid GS750 home built chop. Before that a GS850, another GS750, CB550 four, CB250 bonnie (honest), RS250, Z250, XS250 with grett apehangers (i was young), CG125, CX500 work bike in there somewhere. Not many for how long i been at it, tend to fettle 'em and keep 'em ages.
Where i'm from does have a HD rule, but that's cos we wanna, nowt to say we gotta.

lol ..... If I remeber rightly from early Hell Hound portraits it's a proper white van man jobby complete with flashing orange light. Actually, it's amazing what you can get away with in a white escort van with a flashing orange light - especially with a high vis vest on too.

tis is very true, but to get away with everything you need a 'motorway maitenaince' sticker attached , thats like a licence to park and destroy the roads without any questions asked

Hey I have more street cred than I thought... I had a GS850 back in the day, the GN version with the slide cabs... first bike I took over the ton, heavy but solid as a train. I later had a GS750/1000(Barrels)/1100(bored out) hybrid in a Rickman frame I stole from my idiot younger brother. That felt less solid, but my it had a lot of "pick-up"....

I always thought the Harley badge loyalty was an American thing, more for patriotism than any special affection for the marque..I recall Sonny B writing that he thought BMW was the most practical Ride for the way they ride in the States...... But I suppose by patriotic logic each Chapters should ride their countries flag-carrier...UK Truimphs, Germans Beemers and Italians ...well they still have a choice. Pity about the Belgians though.

I've got fond memories of my GS's too. The first one was a GS1000 that was hardtailed and goosenecked with 2" over forks,very long and low in a sort of drag bike kind of way. That was a lovely bike but I only got to ride it for about 6 months before it got totalled.
The second was a GS750, also hardtailed but in a more 70's way complete with humungous apes. Rode that one for years until the frame started to disintegrate. Every so often I think about building something similar but I doubt that my body could cope with thin seats and no rear springing any more

So are there any rules on capacity then? Or does it just have to fit the image, and be large enough to allow you to keep up on club runs?

Years ago I saw a patch member riding a Honda 90 automatic, I pulled up alongside and realised he had his left hand and forearm in plaster, made sense to ride it, but he did look at me on my bonnie and said "You laugh and I'll kick yer 'ed in!"
Me "How you gonna catch me?"
Him "Good point!" and we both laughed and rode off.

edit - he wasnt wearing his colours, we just knew each other.

Can't speak for taff or anyone else, but I'm sure if the prospect is of good quality, it won't matter what he rides, it's him thats important, not what he's riding, the ride can be changed easily, people can't change their natural behaviour, if that makes sense, i know what I mean!!
