My name is Mark and as you may guess, my hobby other than radio is motorcycles `Harley Davidsons` which live in my kitchen when not in use..

Keeping motorcycles in the kitchen requires much patience from the wife hi hi..

Fortunately, my wife has patience !!!. Motorcycling is a summer hobby, followed by radio when not out riding, between both hobbies i rarely get bored..

The Matt black bike in the top picture is a V-rod VRSCDX Night Rod Special and is my everyday run about for running to and fro work as well as taking the lovely wife to the pub. the night rod has since the photos, been fitted with a larger more comfortable pillion seat and sissy-bar to stop her sliding off the back!!. the other bike is not fitted out for pillion.

 

The other Machine is a Single seat 1450 Twincam anniversary softail chop, 3 3/8" BDL Primary belt drive to a dry Kevlar clutch, the geometry is kept close to the original to keep it an agile bike. The 200 section rear end was fitted within the standard swing-arm despite being told it wouldnt fit??? (I got news for someone!!!). Sadly, this machine has had less and less use, but it makes and interesting conversation piece for when we have guests....

"THERE IS NOTHING LIKE A HARLEY DAVIDSON AS AN ORNAMENT..!!!!!"

 

The latest addition to the harley fleet is a 2010 FLHX Street Glide,, in replacement of the night-rod. it was a tough descision but rider comfort comes first. its all very well having a machine that moves like a stabbed rat, but it needs to go around corners too!!!,, the street glide offers the YL comfort, a big plus after the night rod.. The Street glide is a wonderful bit of kit, offering long riding pleasure. in all honesty i wish id have done it sooner.

Here`s the latest addition to the collection,, a 1999 GSX1300R HAYABUSA. which was the last model before they introduced the 185MPH restriction. this was owned by my dear friend John m0jvt who purchased it new in 1999.. sadly it saw little use over the years, now, some 14 years later it still only has less than 15,000 genuine miles. of course it too is treated like a baby, cleaned and polished and also lives in the kitchen. At times the kitchen has looked like a bike sales showroom !!!

This certainly is a contrast to the Harleys... BUT EXCELLENT FUN !!!!

 

On the radio front, I am active mainly of the HF bands,20m-17m-15m-12m-10m being my favourite choices. I am active at many different times of the day and night as work commitments leave me at home most days at varying times.

The HF setup consists of an Elecraft K3 with P3 panadapter, SPE Expert 1K-FA solid state Amplifier and a 3 element Steppir antenna with 40/30m trombone. The Audio is Via A Red5 Audio RV15 Valve Broadcast microphone, behringer Eurorack UB802, Radio TX Eq FLAT. for the lower bands i use a 135ft doublet fed with 600 ohm open wire feeder with a PALSTAR AT5K antenna tuner. also for 80m & 40m i have a ground mounted CUSHCRAFT MA80/40 vertical with 81 copper radials at ground level (now hidden by the Lawn...)
