Hi from up North

#1 Post by Jetlag Jon » Sun Nov 25, 2018 12:11 am

Hi folks. I came across this forum by accident, thought I would join in.

I got back into riding about 6 years ago, while working in the Middle East. I brought my 2013 Harley Softail Slim back with me. I usually do a couple of week long trips every year, most recently in Italy. I also use the bike year round for commuting.

Looking forward to exploring the site and meeting y'all.

Hello from down South. As far as we're concerned (ignore what @peatear says :lol: ) anything above the eastbound carriageway of the M4 is the north :wink:
