    • Sounds on a Harley ....?

      When I first purchased my Vivid Black Harley Davidson Road King in the spring of 2007, the last thing on my mind was to listen to my favourite music while crunching the miles. I wanted to hear the sound of the big V Twin and the Vance and Hines pipes barking as I rode around our Scottish roads. Then, as I ventured further and pushed the King to see more, the motorway grind began. Am I saying anything new to those who have ventured far on their iron horses, it can be tedious. No, I'm not talking about those glorious times when you hit the back roads and are able to let your senses spread further, to sit in the Harley bubble that accompanies your on those celebrated moments, where you hear and see everything around you. I am talking about the grind of the high speed motorway, the scream of the lorries as you pass them, the blandness of the vista. It's a grind.

      Then I started to experiment. Time for some sounds. I thought, get out the mp3 player, stick it in my lug, tuck the wires into my jacket and we are golden. Well, two sets of headphones later (thanks to the wires getting caught in various bike parts, I gave up and started singing to myself ........ Now trust me, that is just nasty.

      Thankfully, I moved onto the Ultra and all that was put behind me. When I get onto the motorway, click and I can listen to my chosen music at whatever sound volume I like. Wave to those noisy trucks and smile and when I get onto those oh so magical side roads, the music is off and the Harley bubble is back, with a bigger smile.

      So, for those of you who don't have a Electra glide, what do you do?
      Well, help is at hand with two bits of kit, on offer at Edinburgh Harley Davidson.
