It's not the best or coolest out there, but it has been consistent: I've tried to post something on most days. And this funny little page has become home: a bit shabby, with a few jobs I've been meaning to do for years but never got round to.
But now it's almost time to say goodbye.
And what better music to pack up my stuff to than the sound of a freshly-built Shovelhead, pipes barking against the dead quiet of freshly fallen snow: Terry Godschalk's VL/Shovel, beautifully (and bravely) photographed by Brad at ZON, and soon to be featured in the all-new GKM.
Final news tomorrow.

Remember 'Lipstick on your Collar'?
For some reason it popped into my head over the weekend. Ewan McGregor's first role, top music (still have the soundtrack CD somewhere), Dennis Potter brilliance/weirdness.
Got to see if I can find it somewhere on DVD.

Rob's Used Harley Parts in Virginia is an Aladdin's cave of used everyday and rare Harley parts.
Friends in the UK have bought engines (titled, fully guaranteed) and gearboxes off him: he is happy to ship overseas. Why not try him next time you're looking for a motor, front end or tranny?

To my Aussie friends, hope you had a great day. I miss you all. I love this, the original version of the song by its writer Peter Allen. Forget the outfit, the mullet and the lip-synching on the video and bask in unashamed sentimentality. I do. And I'll be clutching my Aussie passport while I do.

Not a good look, but one for some unfathomable reason I adopted on stage at the MBE Verona. I blame the guy with the mic doing the introductions... obviously unimpressed by my English reserve as I handed over the award to Billy and Pepe, he urged me to look excited. Well, he asked for it.
Thanks (I think) to Billy for the photo. Check out the Italian Choppers website and you can see my speech: if you don't speak Italian, just speak English louder. Works for me.
