Visit to Belfast Harley-Davidson #166

Today I made the 140 mile trip to see some bikes in Belfast Harley-Davidson, which is near Antrim town. It was a long way to go, but on the hottest day of the year so far it was great to be out on the road. I took a test ride on a Road King, which I loved. Something to think about! Lots of other lovely bikes here too.

I had a long wait for the test ride as the battery was dead on the bike - they had to put a new one in after about an hour. I rode the bike to Randalstown and back along the M22 motorway - the Road King is a beautiful machine on the road. I think I prefer it to my Heritage Softail. The sterling-Euro exchange rate at the moment is a bit more favourable following the #Brexit vote. 

I decided to take a country road back home and avoid the motorway to Belfast - big mistake: I got lost taking a wrong turn in Antrim. Sign posting is poor in this part of Northern Ireland, It wasn't until I got to Lisburn that I got back on track. Lots of blue, white, and red colour about - it's been just a week since the 12th July celebrations.
