The Rocker®

The Rocker®

I was at a filling station in Handen taking photos of a Ford Fairlane a while back when I heard this Harley drive up. It was Stefan, from Stockholm. He is a technician, and works at Com Hem. He was out riding with a friend. It was a very warm day today as you can see on his outfit. They were heading to Rosenhill, and a very popular biker cafe there. To get there they would drive a road nicknamed Slingerbulten. There's at least one motorcycle accident on that road every week, but Stefan told me that they were out cruising at a somewhat slower pace. Sure was a good day for that. I asked him if he had been to the big Harley meet at Gålö last summer. It rained most of that weekend, but Stefan had been there.

nice Harley!

Black is very IN! I hope he does not skid on that road, because the gravel rash would be nasty.

Why do you have the (R) logo on the heading, Steffe?

It was a good day (only one road accident) ... cool portraiture of the "Rocker" ...

I had the same thought as Julie. Only here it's called road rash. Hope Stefan doesn't have an accident on any road.

Sweden was definitely born to be wild.

That's one mean looking machine Steffe, huge!! but he looks like he can handle it well. Great portrait.

It's only there to confuse you Julie.

Rocker is the name of the bike. I googled a few Harley models and some of them had the ® and the ™ in the name.

Great portrait, not many bikers here, too many scooterists.

Julie said...

To confuse me ... it succeeded ... but that is not hard!!

Hei Steffe.
TAKK for hilsener og tanker nå når det virkelig har vært spesielle tilstander her i Norge! Det har varmet og gjort godt å vite at omverdenen bryr seg!

Så mange flotte portretter du har tatt av svært ulike mennesketyper!
Du bør utgi en bok om menneske du har møtt på din veg!

Jeg klikker inn igjen om ikke lenge!

Håper du har en god SOMMER!:)
