hymn for the dudes....

'you've bought what?'  'you need a chat with yourself mate!' 'sold the harley?' 'twat!' 'why?' 'fucking idiot!' 'bailey, you're a cunt!' well, there you go, just a few snatches of conversation from the last couple of day's from my harley-davidson riding friend's on my revelation that i've moved the sporty on and bought a hinkley bonny, right, let's get a few things straight, this is a photo of the same model i've bought, it's green, british racing green, un-polished, un-chromed engine cases, bog-stock, [bar the tacho conversion] and i'm going to make 'subtle' changes to it, i can't live with that back mudguard, the indicators, silencers, front brake caliper, big shiny, headlight, footpegs, sprocket cover, chain guard, shock's, front mudguard and mirror's, apart from that, well, i reckon i can chop and change it to suit, it's a big, heavy bastard in standard form, but, isn't that what it's all about? [i'm thinking lower, wide bar's, re-positioned indicators, no rear mud-guard, shortened front mud-guard, brembo caliper's, big floating disc, bar-end rear mirror, earl's stainless hoses and fittings, a sprinkle of titanium, stainless and carbon-fibre, keihin carbs, a one-off exhaust and some decent suspender's] yeah, a mild work-over, a little massaging, a little fettling and tweeking, stay tuned race-fan's, it's never an easy road.........
