Bay Area Diggers belonging to Arlin Fatland of Two Wheelers Denver. After a late night drinking beers at Arlin’s house he still got up at dawn to drag these bikes out of storage and wash them down so I could photograph them. Top guy!
guerillasforever asked: Hey. I just wrote a thing about the new 500cc and 750cc harleys. I don't know if you've seen them yet but they've been getting a lot of abuse on facebook. I just posted my response on tumblr. I don't know if you'll agree or disagree but I've made up my mind. It'd be cool to hear your thoughts.
I agree with you. My first motorcycle was a Harley-Davidson and it was a 125cc Trail Bike which they built in Italy in the 70s after AMF took over Aermacchi. It was a crappy little 2 stoke but I was happy it had Harley on the gas tank and a Stars $ Stripes No1 logo! I haven’t read the info on these bikes but I guess they are to be built for the India and China markets.
My good buddy Lawayne Matthies from Dallas (left) and me on one of our Sturgis trips. We only went into Sturgis one night. Spent most of our time riding in the Black Hills exploring. Good times.
Happy 75th Birthday to Sonny Barger who I first met 20 years ago at his Freedom Party at the Mountain House in the hills above Frisco. I gave him a signed copy of my first big Harley book ‘The Classic Harley’. A few years later I shot portraits of Sonny outside and inside the Hells Angels Oakland Clubhouse. Years later I got a signed copy of Sonny’s book so we’re even! That’s me on the right at a book signing that Sonny did in London.
Generator Shovel chop shot that I shot in Severance Colorado the town which will be hosting the famous ‘Nut Run’ this Sunday. Gotta love those Rocky Mountain Oysters!
