Ok, now the story;
It was last Saturday afternoon, there was a bike rally at a local watering hole.
Mostly Harleys. It was the bikers for kids promotion. I drove up in my Deco and entered the
contest. (Cost 15.00 to the charity) Hung around for a couple of hours. By the way one judge
gave me a "9" but predictably the Harleys won in all categories (Dresser, Custom, Stock, Rat).
After the judging a local promoter came up to me and explained he was doing a photo shoot
the next morning, and could I bring the bike over for a prop. No mention of the "accessories" to
be used. I said sure and showed up at 9:00am for the photo shoot. The promoter showed up
with the bevy of beauties and began to shoot. I might add that there was a couple of custom
Hot Rods, A 1948 Indian, (can be seen in the background) and my Deco. I ran and got a cheap
box camera and shot over his shoulder. I used up the whole roll!!!! It was a Sunday to

Also, thanks to Brian Foley at Diamond Jim's, my dealer, for the Ural Hat, without which I could
not have posted some of the pictures. And, yes, that is me with my bike!
