Excuse me Sir, the only Harley owners round here are in the local Hog group and as I've said in another thread, they are a bit snooty. when their bikes need an MOT, they go trade them in with 250 miles on the clock


However, I have a cunning plan. I can take it to a lad who I've known since he was at school and if he fails it, I'll just give him a slap - that should sort it

Do you know where the Harley stealership get used bikes MoT'd? Might be worth finding out, that's what I did and like I said, no problemo. Nice to be called "Sir" though

That option sounds more fun, I must admit.

Had a great day today. fantastic ride out and no knob heads whatsoever. Rode the Trumpet out then ended up at Stratford and there were loads bikers there.

Hub had the electric carving kinfe on Trumpet seat and I can now touch the floor better. superb job. He one of these clever sorts who can do anything, very irritating sometimes, but very handy too
