           Head Road Captain Well, what a great riding season we have had so far! The weather has been (mostly) kind to us and turn outs have been good on all rides. The riding from members has been great and the newer members have slotted in well, riding in formation and performing second man drops. I’m sure that you’ll agree with me that theRoad Crew have found …

As UK&I Chapter Directors, we have a dedicated Facebook page for our chat and disseminationof information between us. H-D management also have access to this page, and back in February a post popped up to see if any directors would be interested in attending the inaugural Harley-Davidson Adventure Centre weekend? How could I possibly with any integrity refuse such anoffer? And no before you ask, there were no super director discounts or anything else, we paidthe same amount as you guys would pay, bearing in mind that you do receive a HOG discount that the ‘general public’ don’t receive, saving you £50.00 for the days course. And that’s how Kath and I found ourselves driving to Wales on the first weekend in March, with theever-increasing fuel shortage and rising costs just beginning. We actually did extremely well for fuel costs on …

For those, like me, who didn’t know when the Plymouth Harley-Davidson started, …

Ouch!

Many years back, when I worked full-time, in Plymouth City Centre, I rode my trusty DR400 parking it atthe bottom of the multistorey where the Mall now stands… How long ago???!!! Leaving work at 5p.m, on a dark, rainy night in January, I negotiated the busy traffic towards Plymstock obviously keeping my wits about me. When I passed the Broadway shopping area, I was following a scooter and could see the front of a white Ford Fiesta appear at the next leftside junction. The scooter passed without incident…. But, as I came within 10 foot, the car pulled out, beginning a turn to its right, back down the main road I had just travelled. I dont remember much of anything else, except the heat of a …

Webmaster It has been great to see so many bikes out on rides this season; and to get stories, anecdotes and pictures from so many of you – it really does make my job easier, so thank you so much and keep them coming! The web site is updated each week and it is always worth looking at the “rides and events” section for the very latest position on rides, rallies, LoH events and so much more. You don’t have to login to look at these …

Director Hello Plymouth Chapter. So, here we are again with another E-Magazine High Decibel. Easier than trying to download a copy of H-D’s The Enthusiast magazine though that’s for sure lol. I can’t believe we are now into the sixth month of 2022 already. So much achieved in what feels like such a short time since our ride out season started back towards the end of March. A Sunday ride out …
