I Ride: Harley Davidson Sportster
Disco Pete acts his age

Alright, it's an age thing, but after promising myself since I was 8 (forty years ago!) I'm buying a Harley Sportster. It'll be sharing the shed with my Transalp. Well, the Davidsons are Scottish, so, it fits in with my lifestyle.

Just remember, its like nothing you have ever ridden before. I see so many riders who are used to riding bikes with suspensions and brakes get into trouble the first time out on a Harley. Be careful!!!!!! and congrats.

It's like our Frankie Boyle says, everyone questioned Mel Gibson's ability to play a scotsman in Braveheart. Now look at him, an alcoholic racist.
