Vulcan Rider

Vulcan Rider

This is John. He was out on a spring ride on his Kawasaki a couple of days ago when I saw him standing by the side of the road in Handen. Unfortunately for him he had some engine problems. So as he was waiting for the engine to cool down, we talked for a bit. John is from Skåne in the south of the country, but love, (and work), made him move north and he now lives in Jordbro. His interest covers everything with horse powers. He enjoys harness racing and used to have his own race horse. Today he is a member of the Vulcan Riders and is often out on his motorcycle. I tried my best to guess how much he paid for the bike, but missed with 50 000 SEK. It's not a Harley, he said, It's not like I'm paying that much extra just for the brand name. Unlike some people I have met. It was just down the road from here I ran into The Harley Man.

I'm loving looking through your portraits - all really good photos, and the short word sketches with them.

Bravo!

Beautiful bike even if its not a Harley! Thanks for letting us meet this gentleman...it does seem that's a cold way to travel at the moment.

Thanks Sally. Well the sun was shining, and John looked very happy, despite his engine problems so I guess it was warm enough. As I left he was on the phone with a friend so I'm sure the problem was sorted.
