    I love my RoadKing

    Took it out to blow the cobwebs off it today. Sadly I've only managed to do about 50 miles on it this year. I'd forgotten how relaxing it is to ride.

    Also gave me a chance to try out my new/used Fuji X100s which arrived yesterday. I think I'm going to love this camera.

    Parted with my first one. Missed it so much I replaced it. It's the best HD imho.
    Some people are more violently opposed to fur than leather,
    because it's safer to harass rich women than motorcycle gangs.

    I had a 2014 CVO Road King, loved it, did 20k in two years. Swapped it for a BW RT. Different bike, but better for all year riding. Quite fancy one of the new softails, I'll wait until all the faults (if any) have been ironed out.

    That is a fine looking Road King you have Dave. Just classic and no frippery. I look forward to seeing it again when you have sussed the exposure on your new camera.

    Thanks

    You do know I'm colourblind don't you! I didn't originally want to post the half arsed effort at a B&W adjusted shot. I posted it from an iPad and picked the only one that would upload at the time! Here's another attempt which isn't anything like as sharp as the pin sharp original:

    Borough market coincidentally when the police are having their lunch break.

    Bought one in 1997 , black , loved it , had it 3 years no problem , like riding a juke box at night . Hard to find a decent evo now . The road glide I bought after it was so butt ugly but a really effective tourer . Loved it for the ability to piss people off playing radio 4 today on the way to work

    That freight train headlight was an early iconic example of how a vehicle luminaire should look.

    A bit like those found on a Mark 1 VW Golf.
