Harald Karlborg rode this Harley Davidson FH two-cam racer from the late twenties up to early thirties. He participated in both endurance run, hill-climbs and track racing.
With Sidecar attached.
No sidecar, but a good luck bear mascot on the back to secure the first place.
From right; Master Erik, Gunnar Kalen, Ivar "The meatball" Liljekvist and John Berglund, all dressed up in HD sweaters.
Erik was a favored rider by HD and had strong connections to the Milwaukee race dept., hence he got two 8 valve racers during his career. The others had to get the best out of their FH two-cam job`s.

Summer in South and Eastern Norway was nothing less than exceptional this year. Except from the fact that the farmers suffered from the lack of rain, anyone interested in riding an old hog had a big smile in their face for months, YES months.
Wonder if I will ever see anything like this again?
Below is a selection of pics from some of this summers rides, blue skies and sun!!!
Dølemo, waiting for Erik & Halvor
The "secret" spot!
View at the "secret" spot, no houses, no cottages, no people, no fu"#k nothing, those places and moments are rare these days.
Ready for dinner.
Erik, Odd & Halvor.
Time to cool down, well problem is the water is to damned hot.

Time to share some more pictures from yesterdays motorcycle scene. Back in the days many preferred a sidecar combination to get family, friends and whatever else they needed to be carried along with them. Pictures below give us an idea of what roads in rural Norway looked like 90 - 100 years ago.

I just realized this blog or website or whatever you like have been on the www for more than 10 years. Scary! That is how fast time is passing by, a decade, pfchhht!
I guess the exact date in April this year when I passed the decade mark should have been celebrated, too late now, I forgot and it cant be redone.
As some sort of making good I will post some great pic`s from Yesterdaze, my favorite column during those 10 years.
Thanks for hanging with me, feel free to come by here in the next decade too.

Those two young girls are seated on a pretty rare motorcycle, an EMBLEM. Quite a few of those where sold here, but none have survived as far as I know, only parts. Those Emblem`s where exported to Europe after the factory had stopped their production in the US.
Another pretty rare machine, an Excelsior light-weight with two stroke engine.
What is more cozy when your on a trip in rural areas, than letting your best friend come along in the sidecar?
Grandma and grand kids in the sidecar tub.
Another Harley IOE with sidecar in the Norwegian countryside. 3000 of those great machines where sold by Sørensen & Balchen to the Norwegian motorcycle riders from 1915 to 1929.
