Friday 2:40 pm. I text my friend Sam while sitting by a beautiful lake - Have fun working dude while I ride your Harley! 2:46 pm. Reply- Bastard That's right dude and then some. I like to ride a fat girl (or two) at the weekends and when the offer came up to ride a Fatboy my initial response was, no thanks not into that kinda thing. The poor bike has been sitting around twiddling its thumbs since Sam and Holly started a family a few years back. Sam and Holly have two very adorable children. Anabel (2) and Samantha (0.6 years) Anabel, Sam and his beautiful wife Holly. I have known Sam since way back when. He harks from the U.S State of Massachusetts. Back in the day he was known as the Minuteman. That had nothing to do with the war of Independence or anything like that. The girls around the Bay State used to call him that. I wonder why? Admission: I have never ridden a Harley Davidson motorcycle before. How pathetic is that you ask? Pretty lame. I know. Plan: Commandeer said bike and see how it rides in the following locations: big city,freeway,twisting mountain roads,lake sides, Pacific ocean roads. Take a shit load of photos of the bike and every other motorcycle I come across. Ride over to Sam's lock up. First bike I see in the lock up is a GPZ750R. The dust! The dust! Once upon a time this was silver. Looks like Sam isn't the only one who doesn't get out much! This wouldn't be out of place in Miss Havisham's dining room. The smaller brother of the once mighty GPZ900R, the bike Tom rode in Top Gun, the fastest production bike in the world at the time. Looks like this bike hasn't been ridden since Kenny Loggins was in the charts singing 'Playing With The Boys'. Yes, the bike 'Took My Breath Away' alright, it has given me an asthma attack. I was gonna write 'Destination Unknown' on the tank with my pinkie but thought better of it. Some other nice rides in the garage: Come on Sam, show us your hog. Don't be shy. Poor bike surrounded by vermin scooters. The V&H pipes are calling Fatboy. Sam has a set of Vance and Hines but had to put the original pipes back on the bike to pass noise testing. The Vance and Hines badly need to go back on this bike. I know that, Sam knows that, you know that... I am not gonna lie, I am excited! The battery was as dead as the bird they ate on Mauritius. BMW and Harley swap juices. Still wouldn't fire up. Just adds credence to the saying, white men can't jump. Shoot off to the bike shop to get a new battery. Some nice bikes on display: Here comes the mechanic with the battery. Bolted a new battery in the bike and it fired up right away. Sam has a sit on his bike in case he never sees it again. Don't worry dude, I'm on a mission from God. It's Thursday afternoon,I have a tank full of gas, I don't smoke and I can't find my sunglasses. Let's have a ride around Tokyo.
