    @Smithy.....I would have taken the car.

    I didn't actually do anything on my Harley today, however I did get to leaf through the accessory catalogue. I like the idea knowing what my oil running temperature is so I am going to get one of these.....part number 63023-05. Saw one in Poole Quay on a tricked up 48 and like the idea/concept.

    Only a little thing....

    Rear number plate looked like an aircraft air-brake. Measured it and it was indeed the minimum size for a motorcycle. Ordered a new one with raised carbon lettering, black border, St Georges flag and 'K9F Forty Eight' written underneath. Despite it being the same size with the reduction in yellow it doesn't look quite so humongous. Got the same design albeit without the 'Forty Eight' on the Land Rover.

    I wanted a smaller plate on my bike but my pipes are a bit loud and I didn't want another excuse for the old bill to pull me over.

    So today I decided it was dry enough to take my 8 year old to school on the bike however as soon as I removed the cover yep the sky decides to open up, still took him to school on it but that was as far as I went , wifey was a bit gutted we only get to ride out together for a couple of hours in the morning and shes desperate to get back on the bike as the bike has been pretty much tucked up since kids were off for xmas. Oh well lets see what tomorrow shall bring.

    Ok Smithy,

    Best not to get a small registration plate, it's not worth the hassle of getting pulled by the Old Bill. I was pulled for having a small plate on my Triumph T160V Trident in 1982, the Traffic Cop warned me, If I didn't go straight home and refit the original plate, he'd book me for having an illegal reg plate. They are keener today than they were then.

    I've noticed that not many Harley riders get pulled over noise, it's accepted that Harley's are noisy machines, and the noise they make is less annoying than Jap fours or Stink Wheels with Expansion Pipes.

    I had Python III slip-on mufflers fitted to my "Iron", an elderly neighbour complained about the noise when I set off for work at 6am, so I refitted the original mufflers, after the next M.O.T. I'll be putting the Pythons back on, I like the throaty sound they make. I'll also install my "Screamin' Eagle" Race Tuner to compensate the fuelling.

    I use to worry about neighbours, but hey I got a Harley and and a reputation to uphold

    Its funny how people have this mentality about Harley riders, I guess its mainly hollywood's fault but may as well take advantage of it once in a blue moon

    Ok Andy,

    I've noted that you have a Motherwell rack fitted to your "Forty Eight". I have one on my "Iron", they are a lot neater than the genuine Harley effort and I like the way it follows the curve of the rear fender. The Harley one juts out horizontally and it has ugly mounting struts.
