Alien invasion

I was going to post this as a ‘Wordless Wednesday’ but thought it deserved a few words.

You’ll find none of my usual horticultural nonsense in this post, or any excuse to include a music video well; maybe one!

After bumping into my uncle a couple of weeks back at the seaside, he said he was very keen for me to put a few pictures of his little moped on my blog, just to show it off a bit!

Two years in the making after being imported from the United States,this Harley Davidson is certainly an eye
catcher.

As you can see my uncle is a fan of the ‘Alien’ films and all the custom work was based on the films.

So there you are, a pretty impressive machine. He did let me sit on it and I can tell you, my heart was pounding with nerves, just in case I dropped the bloody thing!

    You obviously love hard rock….you might like to give my daughters crew a listen… The Madeline Rust … they have just released a vinyl album on TOR label ‘ Truth or Consequences’.
    My son is a biker and has at long last taken both of his bikes out of our garage to take to his house ….oh the space…. πŸ™‚

      Excellent!!! I’ve just been on YouTube, is your daughter the singer? She has a powerful voice, it’s the first time I’ve heard them and I will keep an eye out for them in the future; superb stuff!
      I’ve not ridden a bike for years, I will do one day though πŸ™‚

    Love your blog, Dennis! When you tweet it, you could try using hashtags like #HarleyDavidson, or #gardening, etc – gets more views!!! Also, if you tweet any posts on Mondays, use the hashtag #MondayBlogs and RT a few people on the hashtag – it works wonders!!!! I really like it, great pictures πŸ™‚
