Hi
To be honest the H-D club sticker was on the bike when I bought it. I think the guy who had the bike before me went to a rally in Sweden on his Fat Bob.
I went to a Harley rally in 1992 in Denmark at a place called Saeby near the port of Frederikshavn in the north. I rode from the Hook of Holland to Denmark in one day!
Talk about sore bum and back ache! I did that journey on a Evo Fatboy with my friend riding pillion. We were the only British people at the rally.
One thing we did notice was the amazing Swedish chops which I still have pictures of.
We found the Sandanavian people really friendly also the Dutch. The Germans were not so friendly.
I hope this answers your question.
Might do some rallies on the MT this year.
Dave

Thanks Dave. Appreciate the story behind it. They are a friendly bunch over here :) I thought you may have done one of the winter trips that someone here did a few years ago up through Sweden/Norway.

I'm probably mad enough to! Sounds cool in more ways than one.
