"So why a Roadking?" you all may well be asking

The answers simple because I have loved the looks of the big touring Harleys for years

My brother when he had a Harley years ago also was lent a courtesy Roadking and my heart was set.

On a blustery day in march on a ride out to the coast, I passed "Shaws" Harley Davidson

One impromptu test ride later, a deal was stuck and on Maundy Thursday 2005 I collected my first Harley.

Big Black and shiney she has lived up to all my dreams
