Harley-Davidson DYNA Street Bob

Bought in 2015, Thug is my DYNA Street Bob.

The journey to getting a Harley-Davidson started in Texa [see more here]. In the first three years, around my numerous surgeries, we managed 10,000 miles, countless weekend adventures, wild camped, explored 6 national parks in the UK riden through more than 10 European countries, enjoyed sunrise rides over Tower Bridge in London and generally had a blast on two wheels.

The Harley facilitated a sense of freedom and adventure but required minimal physical capabilities for me. We could get out and have an ‘adventure’, yes nothing like our pre-accident adventures, but it was still an adventure. 

I bought Thug as a standard Streed Bob and over the years have slowly modified her, key mods include:
