Well the bike is all stripped down now and ready to go to Colour Coatings in Edenbridge for Powdercoating. Its going to be Pigeon Blue RAL 5014 and will take about 2-3 weeks to get shot blasted and then painted.

Just got back from a great road trip to the 2009 Harley Davidson Euro Rally in St Tropez. I went down with my friend Steve Butler, who I met on the Route 66 ride last year, and just south of Rheims we hooked up with David Van Kempen, who was also from the Route 66 Tour.

Despite my best intentions to get there and back it was not to be, and it was with some regret that we got the taxi along the cast this morning in what looked like glorious riding conditions - still its great to be home.

Following the never leave your wingman rule I have arranged to get
both our bikes shipped back to the UK for next week . This leaves
just time for one last night out and then an early flight back tomorrow.

could go in was radical and unfortunately it's not that radical!
Still it had huge amounts of attention and loads of photos taken so I
am very pleased. Possibly I should have cleaned it first as 800
miles of bugs and grime do not look good.
Had a late lunch in grimaud and had an entertaining half hour watching
an irate Frenchman trying to get passed some parked harleys in his
clio - it was so funny.
Tonight we are out for some drinks with the guys from C and F HOG in
St Tropez and then back for a quiet night.
Good day all round.

here in 2005 and had a nice drinking session with Iain and Andy mostly
drinking Marc de Bourgogne the local brandy.
We met David and he rode with us here and we are going out for dinner
with him his wife and son tonight.
Bike is going well and I have done 8 fuel stops so far!

Just fully loaded up the bike with a full saddlebag and a big holdall strapped to the front leaf spring suspension - did a quick 10 miles and nothing fell off or grounded out so I guess it will all be OK for the next 1800 or so miles.
The Macbeth bike made the cover of BSH this month (June 2009), and with a 9 page spread inside - very positive indeed; although some dodgy quotes he embellished from me - but there you go. At the end it features the new bikes and lays the ground for future publicity.
