Default Hello from Gloucester UK

Hi all!

I have recently discovered the XL forum and thought it polite to introduce myself.

(Let's see of I can pull images from Flickr. It seems rather complicated.)

Once upon a time, around 1988, I had an old Ironhead.



It wasn't my first bike, but it was my first Harley. I sold that, and I have had lots of bikes since including my current Road King, which I have been riding for nearly 10 years.



I have just picked up a 1999 883 Hugger as a city bike that needed some minor TLC.



This is it after said TLC...
