Yeah, first I've heard about that! C'mon Pops, enquiring minds want to know.

I don't understand this. I've posted these photos once and they've vanished.

What we started with. My '99 Evo Softail and a 1960's Watsonian Monza.

Rode it about 15 miles today to try it out - it's definitely nothing like riding a solo. Then spent the rest of the day adjusting the toe in and lean out. Got a 200 mile ride tomorrow to get it home.
My rig may not be everyone's idea of an adventure hack, but it will be used for long distance touring and it won't all be on metaled roads!

You've done an amazing job with the rebuild Iain. It really does look like you're fully equipped for full time life on the road.
Keep the photos coming.
