HD Museum

I was in Milwaukee on business 2 weeks ago, so I took the afternoon off and visited the Harley Davidson museum. I have to admit, I was a bit underwhelmed. Perhaps Barber Motorsports spoiled me, but it just seems like HD could have done so much more. The museum has a dark industrial motif. The lighting didn’t do the bikes justice and the mix of fluorescent and incandescent lighting made photography a bit of a chore. I will say that the Wall of Tanks was beautifully done and a delight to behold. It was my favorite part of the museum. I understand how iconic the museum is and I’m glad I went but overall it was a bit disappointing.

Christmas Gifts

A gift from my wonderful new son-in-law Ryan. Ah, I needed one of these. It fits perfectly. It’s tough to get any other type of wrench in there. He also treated me to a set of deluxe trunk mats and Inner luggage liners from wingstuff.com. Happy, happy, happy.

I've picked up my Rogue

After 7 years on a VN 750, I picked up my new ride this past Sunday.  I purchased it at Motorsports of Delray in Delray Beach FL and trailored it home.  290 mile drive from Jax but worth it.  Got lots of mods planned.  Will post photos as things progress.  I’m keeping the 750 so that my son and I can ride together.  I’m looking forward to getting past that 1000 mile break-in period…
