Harley-Davidson Dark Custom

Harley Davidson has come out with a beautiful new line of bikes in their Dark Custom series.

the golden helmets

a tour of the niagara wine region sounded like a great idea on a quiet saturday. so my girlfriend and i hopped on the honda magna and made it to burlington before the rain put a quick end to the tour. we stopped in a little coffee shop to dry off and began to notice a lot of motorcycles riding up and down the street… turns out the o.p.p. motorcycle team – better known as ‘the golden helmets’ – were having a demonstration on the next street over. the riders were showing off their skill and maneuverability by carrying out several complex patterns. quite an impressive show in the rain! all those black harley davidson police specials were quite a sight. check out their website: http://www.opp.ca/Community/GoldenHelmets/index.htm i have some videos that i’ll upload later.
