HD owners....

Anybody interested in having their Harley grace the cover of a book? The company I work for might be looking for someone who still has their hog available for a photo shoot. Anybody on the board interested?

People take these things too seriously!

I believe it does have to be a Harley. I think it's for one of the latest installments of our HD road atlas.

Can you post pics of your bikes so that they can decide which one to use? Geo, it's a shame your bike is not ready because they really liked it.
