    The worm has turned!




    For those of you that don't do Facebook I thought I better confess.

    After 13 years together the old girl had to go, No I don't mean Wendy.

    Got a great deal off SHD thanks to some hard bartering skills on my part with Stewart and Lloyd on a brand new Softail Street Bob. There are not many bikes you can keep for so long and Trade In and get back the £5,500 I paid Steve Piper Motorcycles all those years ago for the old 1997 Dyna .

    Even Managed to Blag a new Badlander seat thrown in as well as part of the deal.

    Did a nice little 103 mile ride after leaving the dealership, got home to be told you can get a louder Forkin exhaust...........it's too quiet by her indoors. So of course being someone who always does as he is told ordered a set of V & H slip on mufflers.

    Big thanks to my new "bestest" mate Pat who kindly fitted them for me on Friday night whilst I social distanced. Come to think off it when it comes to motorcycle maintenance I have been social distancing for years, as Cliff will testify.


    Just two problems so far I keep going to reach behind my right leg to turn the key when I go to switch the engine off, instead of just using the engine kill button and as for the number of times I have gone out to the garage to drag her out of and go for a ride, only to have to come back in and grab the ignition fob proximity thingy. FERKIN ALARMS!!


    Any way looking forward to getting my HOG membership pack as you can imagine.

    So feel free to congratulate, commiserate or just Pssh take in your own unique styles.

    Looks great.
    Im sure yours is a good one, and wont have the problems of peeling laquer, rusty mudguards, rusty wheel rims, tin foil wheel bearings, balsa wood oil pump, etc etc.
    You will be fine.

    I can guarantee that the paint and chrome will not be as good in 23 years time as it was on the old Dyna Lowrider, not unless i get them recoated!

    On the positive side, Congratulations on the new wheels and look forward to seeing you out more often.

    On the negative side, look what you have done to the AA share price!!

    It's fallen off a cliff since you did the deal

    Very nice Andy, although I am slightly shocked you let your old Dyna go! Did you not consider having two bikes...so you have a spare when one breaks down!
