Local MAG Show…

It was our local MAG show today (motorcycle action group) so as the sun was making a rare appearance, I opened the lockup, and pulled out the 75 Harley FLH for a run through the back roads of town and then out into the local countryside, heading for the rugby club where the show was to be held, the old 1200 V-twin thumping away.

This was to be my first trip out on the shovel, and what a strange fun bike it is, loads of torque but not the quickest bike on the road, which is a relief, as the brakes weren’t built for speed, but then I guess neither was I.

Well these two are like chalk and cheese, they couldn’t be nore different, but both cool in their own way.

Shall we start with an old Jupiter, why not.
