Smile New Bike.

Fancied one of these for a while. Been looking at them and finally decided to go head to head with the dealer over pricing. I won't mention the dealers name or the sales guy, I think they finally agreed to accept what I was willing to pay, just to get me out of thier showroom! Funny but I don't feel any sympathy for them.

I collected my new bog standard FXDB Street Bob on Tuesday and rode it straight to AFB in Bridgwater to have some bits added and the standard chimney exhausts and other crap taken off, to be replaced with stuff that does what I want it to do and looks how I want it to look.

Forcewinder, Stage 1, Power Commander 5, Big Radious pipes, forward controls, 11/4" chubby 16" apes, braided hoses and a silver and black number plate.







Collected her from AFB Motorcycles on Thursday night. Lovely to ride, absolutely chuffed to fuck with her.

Credit where credit is due. AFB Motorcycles in Bridgwater (01278 444303). Andy owns the place and Tom works for him. Andy is the ONLY guy I trust to work on my engine. Been doing business with him for quite a few years now.

This guy has never let me down, always called me before he does anything if there is going to be additional costs. Always done the job properly AND by the time he says it will be done. No hard sell. Bikes have always been returned to me in excellent condition, cleaned and ready to ride away. His work is excellent. He makes the effort to understand what you want and looks after his customers. (Harley dealers would do well to pay attention to Andys' customer service).

I called Andy to tell him what I was buying and what I wanted done. He called me back within an hour to give me a price for the whole job and had found where he could get everything I wanted within the time I wanted. I had asked for the bike to be ready on Saturday morning, but dropped less than subtle hints about being very happy if it could be ready for me to collect prior to going to church on Thursday night.

Andy and Tom worked like slaves to get the bike done for me by 7.00pm on Thursday. Now tell me which Harley dealer, if any, would work after hours to help a customer?

Not only was the bike ready earlier than originally planned, but Andy beat the dealers quote by hundreds of pounds. Proper work by a skilled mechanic and a damned good bloke. Give him a call.

Thanks Andy and Tom, really appreciate your efforts guys.

Chopper.

Beauty!

not only have you the the super chop, you get this as a runaround?

'kin 'ell, whatever you're doing it must be that you're doing it right.

BTW: which bike will come out for next weekend = Predators M.C. Annual Custom Show & Party?

Actually the VN has a knackered gearbox and clutch. So it will be staying in my lock up until I can sort out what to do about it.

Hi Mickturate

Probably both will be at the show.

Doing it right? The fetish scene has been very good to me. Very very busy right now.

Chopper......... Off to runaround on my new Harley!

If only you knew what some of my customers do to each other and what they do for a living. Nothing much shocks me any more after 25 years of making fetish equipment, but every now and again some one comes along and makes me raise an eyebrow.



This was at The Expo promotional event a couple of years ago. I got fucking drenched on the way home.

Very nice that. If I was going to change my Superglide Sport for another Harley it'd probably be a Street Bob.

Well the build quality on mine is pretty good. I went over her with a fine tooth comb before I signed the handover paperwork. I told the sales guy that there was to be absofuckinglutely no advertising on the bike as they normally do on the reg plate. Made him take the plate off and cut the dealers name off the bottom of it before I took delivery.

Only problem I have found so far is the seat leaks!! Soaks up water, looks dry until I sit on it then get a wet arse. Now stop it you lot.

I will be having a word with the dealer about it.

Chopper.
