Big Bike

Would this be a ‘Hog’? I know nothing about motorbikes but this one seemed to be bigger than most cars I’ve owned!

    As far as I know (which isn’t very far), it’s a ‘Hog’ if it’s a Harley-Davidson. I have no idea whether or not that bike is a Harley (though if I had to bet, I’d say yes.) I’m better with cars. What I do know is that style handlebars are called ‘ape hangers’. The shorter ones like that are ‘mini apes’. I’m sure that’s more than you ever wanted to know 😉

    Love love love the perspective and the dog in the background.

      Wow, thanks. You know a lot more than me! Thanks for the kind words. Did you also notice the person in the background? The dog’s looking her, she’s looking at the bike.

        Oh, I thought she was looking at you. I also thought the dog was looking straight ahead. Sadly, I needed my glasses to see this better.
