I saw the pic the first time round and never noticed the "hunchback" VW bug ............... Brilliant !!
I wonder if the wipers work up top
Ive seen hippie bus+bugs with and without functioning top wipers :)
the old VW bug wiper motors are pretty simple and easy to rig up there, but if the bug windshield bottom is flush with the top of the bus like that, they stick down into the bus some, and you need some kinda cover for the linkage or its really fugly.
the neatest one I saw had a couple "captains chairs" that swiveled on pillars that were up in the bug space...
Fan "Bloody" Tastic Doug. Truly epic. I'm subscribed. What kind of tires do you use?

Okay...I don't get it....what is probably one of the 3 best RR's in "The History of Western Civilization" ( and that was a 800 page text) is only a 4-Star..I don't get it...
Awesome report Doug, interesting all the way, you have a real eye for interesting photos and I love all those old bikes, still don't understand how the bottom of your saddlebag made it though
<-Votes 5 stars!
sorry Im behind on posting, we're hosting a horizons unlimited travelers meeting at the motocamp this weekend, & Poly has been making me work all week!
When I could sneak away from that, I've been riding offroad in the mountains.
(not on the harley....)
I'll get back on it monday, when things here settle down
bloody inconsiderate really. Colebatch has gone all quiet. How we meant to get our hit
Did some googling and found the following:
The Roikkaralli has in the recent years been arranged in the first half of July at various places in Finland. It is arranged by Ural Roikka (http://uralroikka.net/sivut/) the association of Russian bike owners (+Chinese Changjiang boxers) in Finland.
In the 2010 Pyhäjoki meeting some 200 bikes from Finland, Russia and Sweden participated. Here some videos on the Roikkaralli activities http://www.veoh.com/collection/UralRoikka and some photos as well http://picasaweb.google.fi/kmz.k750/Roikkaralli2010#
In 2011 the meeting is scheduled to take place at a camping site in Taipalsaari in southeastern Finland (http://www.saimaanranta.fi/fi/sijainti/) and the date is for time beeing set to 15-17.07.2011 (http://uralroikka.net/pulinat/viewtopic.php?f=10&t=5911). In addition to bringing your own tent you can stay in cabins as well.
In case you need help with the translation please let me know.
Just wanted to comment and say "Thanks' for a great report" Its been like reading a great novel. I only have time to read so far, then can't wait to get back to it. The Pictures are awesome! I would have never dreamed of riding a Harley in the manner you have, but I will have to say "I really Like 75 Shovel with 50/50 tires"! That bike is cool!
If you ever up in Southern Ohio, Look me up. I'll buy ya dinner.
Doug, thanks for another epic RR.
You are the guy Chuck Norris always wished he could be.

Enjoy your trip Doug ... and I know you are.
I know I'm enjoying reading about your trip.
Another great write up Doug. Makes work go by so much faster.
No let's see the "Around the world on a BMW R6" next.
Too funny! Now that makes me want to ask for a rtwdoug lunchbox for my birthday.
Me thinks Doug has an untapped goldmine in merchandising.
Doug, when you get back we want shirts, lunchboxes, underoos, etc.
Where can I get me one of these hats?
