Earlier this year, I rode to Portugal with Ian Solley and my son Charlie. We went to the HOG Euro Festival and each of us was on a custom motorcycle. Bearing in mind Charlie had only passed his motorcycle test two months earlier, he did brilliantly well!
Each of us had an incident on the way down, with mechanical problems and one of our group dropped his bike on a very slippery roundabout. Unperturbed by this, all three of us entered our motorcycles in the custom bike competition and each of us won our class. From trouble to success in one step!
This is the HOG video about the custom bike show. Charlie is at 1:15 and I am at 3:29......
Ian sadly had to leave before the prize giving, but you can see his bike at 0:36 Charlie went up to collect Ian's prize.
It was certainly a trip to remember and on the way back, I made a short video of my son Charlie on his 22 year old Sportster....
We are now looking forward to our next road trip!
