HBN in the news again

For those who didn't know this (like me) and who don't get the Aerostich catalog, here is a picture of our own Mike Saunders on the cover.

Okay. I stand corrected. I did not realize the wheels were changed out too. That is a lot of work. I do admire his style and I would be more interested in riding that, than most other HDs.

Go figure

We came home yesterday to freezing pipes. Our closest neighbor in WV just told us they have 18" of snow today, and it is still coming down. Damn. Why did I come home?

Too many bikes?

I'm always looking for the next Giro bike. If you ever get a hankering to cut one of them loose, please let me know. I might have an extra AMF Harley Rapido this spring.
