Picture of the month:

They did it again. Harley Davidson presented their newly styled Sportster in 2012, and called it Sportster '72. It is some time ago, but compared to the very new Harley models, harleys.de likes this one best. This machine combines new technology and old style looks. It features the fuel-injected, air-cooled 1,200cc Evolution V-twin, with an output of 73 ft-lbs of torque at 3,500 rpm.

Harleys.de would love to see a similar edition of the "Midnight Express, the pinstriped Super Glide of 1972, as shown on the right.


Need For Speed?

Springtime, the first sunny days are coming up. The bike is tuned up to the best of your knowledge and it's time to get the old Shovelhead out on the highway. Warm up the engine and see if the she delivers the same power as last year. While revving her up you feel the steady boost towards the 100 miles per hour, which she is supposed to exceed. The oscillating indicator of the speedo tells you, that she clocked it already. Time to slow down, test passed successfully.

And as you decelerate looking for the next exit, you hear the sound of an approaching spitfire. There it is, no it's not a Spitfire, it is..., no...., there  w a s  a motorcycle "cruising" at a speed of 170 mph or more. And as this highway is a public road, it couldn't have been "The Doctor" on his early morning warm up lap.

But who the hell could be that silly to risk his and possibly other life by riding that fast? One single piece of wood on the road, one car or truck changing lanes, the driver not seeing, that there is somebody approaching with a speed of 76  meters a second.


The rider won't survive. And we will be seeing more of that this coming summer: racing motorcycle riders giving a damn about the safety margin to the vehicle up front, maniacs overtaking, even when the passing lane has not been cleared yet. All this will happen on public roads, and with a strong focus on killing themselves.

Offroad across Central America

Maya Tours

Truly an unforgettable adventure was the trip from La Ceiba, Honduras across Guatemala and Belize with Maya-Tours. Whoever has the chance, go for it!! You won't be disappointed, promised!


Quote of the month:

"Riding a motorcycle on today's highways, you have to ride in a very defensive manner. You have to be a good rider and you have to have both hands and both feet on the controls at all times.

Evel Knievel

 

These are the Looks!

Hard to be seen, absolutely rare in original condition, but there is a pinstriping on the bike in red, blue, and white, width and RAL color codes still unknown to me. Is there anybody who knows more? The 1972 "Midnight Express". Midnight Express

This is the favorite model of Harleys.de.
