#620 ... MP Harley

This neat guy and his partner were sight seeing around Parliament and were about to head off to catch the inter-island ferry to the South Island for a road trip. They are riding $29K of H-D in the form of a V-Rod Nightrod ... I think that's the right model ... however what is more interesting is that "necessity is the mother of invention". Front fairing removed and replaced with the sleeping bag roll with contrasting stretchies and a unique individually hand crafted Valentine Radar detector mounting mechanism ... a.k.a ... vinyl floor tile, hand cut and folded to house the radar detector with the whole thing fixed to the sleeping bag roll with colour co-ordinated duck tape.

Now this guy is also the proud owner of two more Harleys ... and despite minor reservations about the handling he loves these awesome beasties. Thanks for the conversation and
