On yer bike!

It seems logical to me, as people get older they get wiser. My Dad, in his wisdom has decided to purchase a Harley Davidson motorcycle.

Tonight we travelled to Larne, where the bike was waiting to be picked up, and Dad rode it home while I followed behind.

It's a noisy beast, all part of the character if you ask me. When we got home we went for a spin down the road, and it was great. That was the first time I ever rode pillion in my life, and I can safely relate that it is a scary experience.

The bite of the 2-cylinder engine is fantastic on that drag bike, which has a very high first gear. The torque even in 5th gear is amazing.

So young - yet so insightful!
