    Well I was hoping for a few more than one, but you're probably right.

    I can remember when most coppers in Qld didn't carry a pistol, but they all had a truncheon on their belt.

    And the bastards knew how to use them also. Mate got cocky once but after a little chat from the copper around the corner, he was very humble and polite to the cops after that. Funny as hell

    I copped a hit with one as a young bloke, precisely placed just above my elbow. Hurt like a bastard, arm and hand went numb causing me to drop the talley that I'd been sipping from on the road behind the Storey Bridge pub, way before it went trendy. Was a crowded Friday night, about 1976, quite a few bikes were there, and a couple of mates and I had spilled out onto the road. The copper didn't want us drinking in a public place and when I ignored him delivered the hit. For him it was problem solved, the bottle smashed when I dropped it.
    Last time I went to the timber museum in Wondai, well worth a visit, the local woodworkers group had replicas of them for sale, turned down from Ironbark billets. Solely for wall mounted display only of course.

    Imagine that today....suing copper for sure. Had to smile how wrong the system is now....last night someone was assaulted at Nambour bus stop...coward punch and head stomped fighting for life. A UFC trained guy stepped up and grabbed the shitbag , a struggle ensued and the UFC dude lost a tooth but the shitbag did what they always do and ran away. A person filmed it all and the footage shows the "alleged shitbag" with his face blurred out???? but the UFC dudes face clear, he also appeared in the local news with his name yet police are still looking for shitbag   "That man is described as Caucasian in appearance, and was wearing a grey jumper, dark shorts, and thongs." Fuck me! Theres video of his face wrestling with UFC man......here's a tip....Release the photo of the shitbags face!
    The guy whos head that was stomped is on life support.

    Law is completely screwed up because of all the bleeding heart clowns out there today. I remember a few years back a young bloke around 16 or so was in his bedroom studying when he heard a woman screaming. Looked out his window and sore the elderly lady next door being attacked by a junky with a knife. Young bloke grabbed a crossbow and fired it at the guy and pined him to the wall. Police decided rightfully not to prosecute but as usual the bleeding hearts demanded he be charged. At least the court found him not guilty but it should not have gone that far.

    Jumper, shorts and thongs, that sound right for Namba in winter. Locals never seem to put it together that maybe wearing some jeans and boots or shoes might make them warmer. Or maybe Vinnies didn't have any in stock.

    Just saw today that they'd made a movie out of Danny Lyons book of photos from 1965, 66 of the Chicago Outlaws club, due for release in early July. Went digging into my shipping container for my old copy of the book, spent some time looking at it again. Struck me how many Triumphs in the pictures, also just how different the style of bikes and clothing was there in the mid west, compared to the photos taken by Life magazine during a couple of weeks with the Sacramento 'Angels in California the same year.
    I like other films from the bloke who made it, Take Shelter, Mud, Loving, were all pretty good, might try to catch it in Toowoomba or Kingaroy if it travels a bit.

    Looking forward to seeing this. The trailer looks good. Noticed it will be showing at my local independent cinema on July 4, Owner has said he will be throwing a few bollards out the front so that we can all park our bikes at the front door.

    In the old days when I wanted to see how everything in the universe was connected, I had to go into the back paddock and pick some 'shrooms or call on a mate who was a bit of a manufacturing chemist, but thanks to the internet, you can now see it all plainly.
    Went looking for some online pics from the Bike Riders book to hang up here but found something better. The film maker has a younger brother, who is the lead singer of a band I really like, Ben Nichols from Lucero. Now one of their songs from a few years ago is called The Bike Riders, and details the story of Benny and his girl from the original book of photos. The video of the song is a succession of photos from the book. These were real people, and here they are, frozen in 1965.
    But wait, there's more, as they used to say on TV. Maybe still do but I couldn't befckd watching it.
    The Harley Icon model for 2024 is the Hydra Glide Revival, a throwback to 1956 styling, nice looking bike too.
    Here is a video from HDs official photographer for the bikes release publicity. Josh Kupias.
    Now this bloke shot the video for Lana del Rey's Ride song, and took part in the pretty good movie about riding rat choppers across the US, 21 Days under the Sky. Both of those are worth watching too. Every now and again a free full movie link to 21 Days etc rocks up onto YouTube for a while. Currently there a link up to it on a Brazilian bike clubs Facebook page, Chopperon. Choose the English option, not the Portuguese

    The Hydra Glide Revival would be the first purchase if I scored lotto. Does anybody want to buy a kidney, I have a spare

    It is a look that appeals to most. The out of touch nature of HD is on show. A limited run of 1750 models instead of a new line of bike in general production to get back in touch with the people who have loved the brand for decades. Organ donor plans should not be the key to availability of a machine that is wanted en masse.

    It's one very overpriced softail, it does look good though, in a different paint set it would appeal to me more.

    The few that came here went out the door at about A$50,000 didn't they?
    You could go a long way towards making your own starting with a 25 grand M8 Slim. If you really like fringed leather saddlebags with a pretty good quick release system, an Indian dealer will be happy to help.
    My preferred bag style would be the early fibreglass ones with the bulge at the tail. They turn up occasionally, maybe someone makes replicas.
    But they will sell all they make, and will problem hold their value. The Electra Glide Revival seems to have. But you'd think it would be more profitable to crank out a few more of them at a lower price.

    This one appeals to me the most and maybe not to hard to build a copy
