This was the planned route, although, we did change it a bit on our way back:
We had to stop after every 70 – 100km as I just wasn’t used to riding so long and my butt was screaming for a break 😀
Swarm of people in the town, traffic was so busy it took us ages to get to the hotel. Once we checked into the hotel, we went around to see what was there. Many clothes and jewellery stands, food and drinks, a stage and there was also a custom bike show:
Unfortunately, we didn’t make it on time for the parade and demo rides were fully booked, but we did manage to try to ride the new Harley Davidson Fat Bob a week before the event.
My partner tried it – he wasn’t impressed. I didn’t like it either, it was really uncomfortable. It was just too wide in the seat and I definitely couldn’t enjoy the longer rides. The one thing I loved though, was the power (1,745 cc). It just goes like crazy, you can feel the pull when you turn the gas – like when you’re on the top of a rollercoaster and you’re just going from the top down – loved it 😀
Also, it was so quiet which actually killed all the enthusiasm I had as my little Sportster has a beautiful sound now that I have Vance & Hines exhaust thanks to my darling 🙂
After the custom show and having something to eat there was a contest and you could win a Harley Davidson 😀
Of course, we didn’t win it but it was fun to watch!
Later there was a Hells Bells concert which we had to skip as we were wrecked after almost the whole day of riding (yup, we’re old 😀 ).
