Not long after I took up the role of Editor for the Hoggit I was at a HOG function proudly wearing my waistcoat with my newly sewn-on ‘Editor’ rocker still bright and shiny when a member from another Chapter approached me. “I take it you’re the Editor for Oxford Chapter?” I answered in the affirmative and we struck up a conversation. He too was an Editor and told me how rewarding the role was and that most people would be very appreciative of the time, effort and sacrifice that goes into doing this job, but just occasionally, there would be someone who would take a pot shot from afar. He was right, I have for the overwhelmingly vast part of the time been given great encouragement and support, even though I know I’ve never always got it right. That said, recently there have been one or two (well two to be precise) accusations that I have indulged in censorship and caused a deliberate slight to a reader. Now I am the last person to sanction censorship, quite the contrary, it was I who published a rather well-written new model review by a Chapter member which was fair but less than complimentary to the H-D brand. I stood by the article because it represented what I believed is the expectation of the readership-fairness, accuracy and integrity. Which leads me on to the issue at hand, what is seen by some as censorship is in fact nothing quite so dramatic, it is just plain old editing. Like it says on the rocker, Editor. So what is the job of the Editor? And I don’t mean the job description, anyone can find that in the HOG Charter. I’m talking about what it is I actually do. Well to start with, each and every month, without fail, I must have a printed copy of the Hoggit at Chapter night for those who want a hard copy. I must have sent out to all Chapter members who request an electronic copy, their copy the same day. I must fill at least twelve, sometimes sixteen and very occasionally twenty pages of articles, photos, write-ups, information and various fillers such as jokes, cartoons, interesting snippets and whatever else will prove either informative or interesting. Of course, there is no obligation to achieve this, we just have high standards in Oxford UK Chapter! In order to achieve this on time, every time I begin the next month’s Hoggit the night after Chapter night. I choose the cover first as this gives the publication it’s own identity and it’s a job I love the most. Then, over the course of the next three weeks I collate information, pictures and articles from those members who have something they want to contribute. About ten days before the print run I start to configure the layout, decide on how many pages (they have to be in multiples of four), and start to put things where I think they belong. I now await the deadline when articles and information floods in. This is now the critical phase, where decisions have to be made about which article goes where, should it be included this month or shelved until next month? What about all those photos I’ve been sent? If I think about it, editing is 10% science, knowing how to use the software and tricks of the trade, and 90% art, being creative,

thinking about what goes where, what colour schemes to use, deciding on which photos to use, correcting text, trying to give each publication a fresh, vibrant and unique appearance but holding on to a unifying theme and identity. I’m conscious that the Hoggit is read throughout the HOG world, it is there for any Chapter anywhere in the world to read. It is sent directly to the States, and throughout Europe. I’ve found Hoggits in biker cafes as far afield as Plymouth and I know there are a few in Malta! Once the publication is completed it is proof read by senior members of the committee and changes are suggested, if appropriate. In most cases these are accuracy issues, such as dates of events, times, etc. Occasionally, a telephone number or the spelling of a name. During this process, fine alterations are made, trying to add the wax polish to the cleaned chrome as it were. Wiping off the watermarks. Every editor works in his or her own way, and this is mine. I should say at this point that without exception, and I mean without exception, every article, every photo, every item, no matter how large or small is edited in some way, spelling, grammar, punctuation has to be corrected. Wordage has to be subtracted if space is an issue, and added if it needs padding out. In this issue, there is at least one each of the above. Photos have to be resized, cropped, lightened if too dark and darkened if too light. They have to be decreased in resolution to save storage space and increased for printing quality. Articles have to make sense. The messages they are designed to convey have to be enhanced, or toned down. They need to be interesting and factual. In short, editing is taking raw data and purifying it for reader consumption-as I see it, without losing the writer’s identity. The article in question that appears to have caused this storm in a tea cup pivots on the author thanking one person for baking a cake for the Air Ambulance Open Coffee Morning in April. I decided to leave out the person’s name as a judgement call, why? Because on that day many, many kind-hearted people made the effort to bake or buy cakes, scones, cookies, savouries and then to come along, buy some of the goodies on offer, stand behind the counter for up to four hours in some cases, serving hot drinks, and food, cleaning up, washing cups, emptying rubbish bags and leaving the place sparkling clean afterwards. These dedicated team players were not mentioned in the article by name, so I made the decision to leave it at that, a thanks to everyone. They know who they are and there are too many to mention each by name for risk of omitting one. When it’s all said and done, if any one of us is ever in the unenviable position to be lying on the side of the road after a crash, injured, it will not cross our minds who baked the cake, only that a lot of people gave their time, effort, money and commitment to raising cash which in some small way helped put the Paramedics and Doctors at our side. Thank you all who made the coffee morning such a success and contributed £240 + to the air ambulance and thank you everyone who has contributed to the barn dance fund raiser and to the Ride the County event for the air ambulance. Let’s pray we never are in need of it. Take care out there.

Director’s Cut e v e i C y Gr

Is your screen too tall ? If it is cut it down hopefully some photos accompany this as a guide but basically use a fine tooth blade, I use a jig saw cover the screen outside with masking tape draw a line where you want to cut and that fine tooth blade will glide through no splinters or splits. Sand down the cut edge to smooth then very smooth using a finer grade abrasive cloth (keep it flat). Finish by polishing, job done.

Hi All. Hope you enjoyed a few miles rumbling along the leafy by ways but inevitably at times some planned rideouts get cancelled due to poor weather, unforeseen circumstances etc . Hopefully a replacement can be found along the way if even at short notice, those rides can be as good as any so it's always worth keeping tuned to the Oxford chapter FB page or the chapter website just in case. Sofer- the search goes on for a new venue and a couple of volunteers for the SOfER committee, rallies don't run themselves any more than chapters do, it takes a team, no team no chapter no rally don't leave everything to the same few please. So venues at present ...the closest being viewed is Hickstead nr. Gatwick, known for horse riding, show jumping etc. It's a site that hosts many events and is being reviewed closer on the 28th June. Lots of costs need agreeing, on site requirements, electric, showers, loos and so on. So when there's more or better news you will know- watch this space. The Big Bank Holiday Bash; well the weather made a disastrous effect on the rally-very disappointing, but who's to blame? Nobody except unwelcome meteorological potions. Equally put pay to Poole bike night and a met office yellow warning trumped the Ace Cafe Harley night...…. oh give us a break !!!! Ride of Respect: well it looked pretty active with nice weather to boot so what’s wrong with that? Warrs of Chelsea had a 90th year celebration day that was really busy too I didn't eat much that day at £12.00 a burger didn't appeal, the ride from the Ace was a nice idea if you didn't know the way but unlike our rideouts if you weren't in the first few the ride left you behind. Thanks guys. Well not me I knew my own way and combined it with a recce to the Imperial War Museum which is undergoing its biggest ever refurbishment, I have a rideout planned here so parking was on my agenda I have seen better but there is main road free parking and the road is pretty wide too but also lots of room just inside the grounds, there's no security there now but I hope to agree an arrangement when they are, opening planned for mid July see pic. Note the 6th July advertised is not possible.

So there you are, a job for a wet day. Pete's trip to Bernkastle is now just around the corner but ....I'm afraid it's school term which counts me out, for those that can have a safe enjoyable trip to a very attractive riverside town and a glass or two of Weisbeer. Out of gas

It was if suddenly the world descended on the forecourt of the Oxford Harley-Davidson dealership. Sunday morning and the place was heaving. Not just with the Oxford UK Chapter members who were going on the 5th Ride of Respect, nor the members who came out to lend their support, but also with every other biker in the country, or so it seemed. Oxford Chapter set off at 10.30 sharp and as a unit made our way to Dalton Barracks, just a five minute ride away. The temperature was rising and it was going to be a hot one. We arrived on base and took our positions, in spite of what I thought was poor marshalling and organisation, we dismounted and started to look for toilets and a cuppa. No chance. The marshals could not tell us when we might be departing, only that it would be between five minutes to three hours. Umm thanks guys, big help. There were plenty of photo opportunities, and lots of time to socialise, which is always nice, but every time someone went off for a comfort break, we had to move the bikes forward so the poor person returning had to find their bike in the melee. Finally, after about an hour we were on our way, and not a moment to soon, I could almost feel the breeze in my face…aah, bliss. But wait….and that’s what we did, wait. It took nearly two hours to complete the 25 mile route, most consisted of crawling along at sub-5 mile an hour speeds interspersed with 60 mile an hour sprints along a twisty road and then around a corner-red tail lights snaking into eternity. And it just got hotter and hotter. At one point the holdup was so long we all switched off and dismounted, taking the opportunity to remove helmets and gloves and cool off, stretching aching legs. Of course, it wasn’t all bad, the villages we passed through had really made an effort, with Union Flags a-flutter, children, families, old folks all coming out to cheer. Even the beleaguered motorists were in good humour, on what must have been a nightmare scenario for them. The atmosphere was truly uplifting and memorable. Okay, so it was a long, hard ride at 5 miles an hour for two hours on a hot and muggy day sitting on an engine without much cooling going on, frustrated at being held up. Not one iota the pain, discomfort and misery that our troops have had to endure, not only in the most recent conflicts, but in many such conflicts over many years, in all corners of the globe defending ours and other’s right to freedom. My sacrifice was having a sore backside and hot calves for a couple of hours, theirs was much, much greater, and I for one will always be grateful. Can’t wait for next year, but I suggest we leave a bit earlier. Ian.

5th Ride of Respect June 1st, 2014. Dalton Barracks


A Taste of America In Oxfordshire A unique new destination diner and car spa has arrived in the UK. Chariots and Cherry Pie takes inspiration from the fun and fearlessness of 1950s, when America’s love affair with cool cars, even cooler bikes and fabulous food was in full swing. Situated off the A420, or Route 420, near Buckland in Oxfordshire, the first permanent Cherry Pie Diner opens its doors in early June 2014. The team will be serving a delicious menu of authentic American diner food including all day breakfast items such as sweet waffles, pancakes, steak and eggs and breakfast skillets. The lunch and dinner menu features a mouth-watering array of burgers and hot dogs alongside regional and State specialities such as the Boston Butt Hoagie. Families can also take advantage of Early Bird family dinner deals including pot roasts and meat loaf, and half price drinks and shakes during Happy Homework Hours. There’s also plenty to keep you entertained whilst you eat. There will be live bands playing hits from the 50’s and 60’s every Friday night and Sunday afternoon. Diners will be able to catch the England, USA and Mexico World Cup Games. There’s big celebration plans for Independence Day on the 4th July and a series of summer events for all the family. More details can be found on the Chariots and Cherry Pie website, Facebook, Twitter pages and newsletter. What's more, from early June visitors will be able to get a premium hand car wash and valet at the first Chariots Car Spa. Whether you’re looking for a quick exterior hand car wash right through to a full exterior wash, polish and valet service, the Chariots Car Spa team will be on hand and ready to make your ride really shine. Founders Claire and Jonathan Hilsdon comment: ‘Chariots and Cherry Pie will be the only place where you can shine, dine and unwind in one location. We are committed to delivering delicious food made from high quality local produce in a comfortable and fun environment, with the highest standard of customer service across both our diner and car spa with the aim of becoming the family favourite destination for miles around.’ A second Chariots and Cherry Pie is due to open in Grove late 2014. It will feature a diner and car spa followed by a boutique Cherry Pie Motel in 2015. The 1950’s vintage-style Cherry Pie Diner Mobile Diner which served as a temporary diner on site at Buckland whilst renovation work took place on main diner, will now be hitting the road and appearing all over the country at some of the biggest and best summer events. The trailer will also be available for private hire for weddings, parties and corporate events. The team is happy to customize the menu to suit individual tastes, dietary requirements and themes. Chariots and Cherry Pie are offering Oxford Uk Chapter members that come down to Buckland for the Saturday Breakfast Club a special discount. Members can benefit from 10% off food and car or bike washes on a Saturday morning between 6.30am and 11.30am. To benefit simply present your Chapter membership card or wear your back patch.

We rode the County! Paul, Bounce, Ian & Steve after circumnavigating Oxfordshire

iles m 9 . 118 oH t H from

This was the inaugural Ride the County event and therefore a bit of a lottery. The idea was that each rider would be made aware of four checkpoints at four different cardinal points around the County of Oxfordshire, North, South, East and West. Prior to registering on line, I only knew these point s to be Thame, Banbury, Burford and Didcot. Upon registering, I was given the exact locations of the checkpoints, not exactly enough time to recce the route, in fact, some of the checkpoints were well hidden and not easily accessible. I had no idea who was coming on the ride and on the day we had eight riders, some who had just decided to join, and some who said they were riding but didn’t arrive. All a bit confusing. We set off at 11.00 and arrived at the H Cafe for those who wished to register and get their Checkpoint Log. This official entry cost a tenner and once done, we set off to Thame, a lovely ride along the A329 where we arrived without any problem at Hughenden Triumph Dealership. A quick stamp in the passport and off we went up the A418 towards Banbury. We got onto the A40 and after a short detour towards the city centre (okay, so I got lost), we were back fighting the traffic on the Peartree before stretching our legs on the A4260 road through Kidlington. We made a scheduled stop at the excellent Sturdey’s Castle pub for a bite to eat and a cold drink before heading on to Banbury. By this stage we had thinned our number to five, and the ride to Banbury checkpoint took us through an industrial estate which had the access road I had chosen closed. Steve Price did his Great Escape scene and ramped up on the pavement and found a gap in the barrier. We all followed. Banbury in the bag and we, slimmed down to four, headed for Burford, along the A361 which was really spectacular, great scenery, great roads and not a lot of traffic and made for a brilliant ride. We arrived at Burford checkpoint at 15.03 only to be told that Didcot would be closing at 16.00! Cripes, we’d better fly if we wanted out log stamped. And fly we did, Burford to Didcot in about 50 minutes, to include the obligatory detour into some industrial park. Final stamp, cuppa and on to the H to complete the circle. 118.9 miles round trip, not including the ride from the Toyshop to the H and not including rides to and from the Toyshop and home again. For me it amounted to 250-odd miles in the day. At the H we four, we happy four, we band of brothers…ok ok, enough of that. A good day, raised some dosh for the air ambulance and learned that trying to remember a route that you planned the night before on Google Earth is more difficult than you might think. Let’s see if we can up the numbers for next year. Ian.

10 Things you should never do on a Chapter rideout 1. Never arrive for a rideout under the influence of alcohol or any substance, legal or otherwise. HOG operates a zero alcohol policy for all official Chapter rideouts. (12 hours bottle to throttle)

w ne o t me er o c b l We mem

2. Never arrive in a state that might prevent you from being fully alert, capable or might restrict your ability to be safe to yourself and other road users such as over tired, agitated or (1) above. 3. Never take part in a rideout if you have not signed and submitted the annual disclaimer form to a Committee Member or Road Captain.

John Green, live in Woodcote, South Oxon, married to Jo.

4. Never to try to ‘manage’ other traffic, slow or stop other road users. It is an offence to deliberately obstruct other road users, unless directed to do so by an officer of the law.

Passed my bike test in 1976 by riding round the block without falling off. Owned a number of Japanese bikes in the 70s and 80s when family commitments took over. Still retain a love of 1970s four stroke Hondas.

5. Never overtake the lead rider unless requested to do so or second-guess what he or she is intending to do. This can cause confusion in the following riders and potentially split the group.

Always fancied a British Bike but could’t afford one back then - also always wanted a Harley (even less in my budget).

6. Never participate in a Chapter rideout on a vehicle which is not fully insured, road-legal, safe and suitable for the rideout. This includes ensuring there is adequate fuel for the rideout or to the designated refuelling point. 7. Never put yourself or any other road user in an unsafe situation; and this includes drop-offs-if it’s not safe, don’t do it. You are ultimately responsible for your own safety and that of your pillion.

Got back in to bikes a few years back after a long time without one and bought a Bonneville T100. Jo then bought her Sportster and I needed to scratch the Harley itch so I sold the Triumph and bought a 2013 ex demo FLD Dyna Switchback from Jonny at Oxford Harley Davidson. Other interests include old Landrovers (owned many of them), camping, family and classic bikes - I also own a 1960 BSA in scramble / trials trim. John

8. Never miss the briefing. The lead and other road crew will have important information about the ride and potentially your safety and enjoyment. Missing the briefing or not listening is disrespectful and potentially hazardous. 9. Never intimidate other road users, especially the vulnerable, such as horse riders, cyclists and mobility scooters. Revving your throttle may sound sexy to you but may spook a horse or scare a child into losing control of their bicycle. 10. Never break the law. “You are deemed to be in control and responsible for, your vehicle and riding at all times, irrespective of any guidance or instruction from any member of the road crew. You must at all times ride within the law and obey road traffic regulations” (HOG).

The May LoH lunch took place at the Swan Hotel in Bibury. This village is so beautiful it is breath taking and I suspect this will be a destination for later in the year. When I decided on Bibury I hoped its reputation as the most photographed village in England would be a draw and we would get a few takers, well it worked, we had 15 to lunch. Ian had recently had a really enjoyable ride to Bibury and I hoped the weather would be fine so that those who wished could make the journey on 2 wheels. Well the day dawned warm and sunny, and for those who decided to ride to Bibury it was perfect. We set off from the Toyshop at 11.40 and made our way to Frilford via Honeybottom Lane. We then headed for Kinston Bagpuize (I always want to say Bagpuss!), then on to Witney and down the A40, past Burford and a nice, leafy ride in to Bibury, which as usual, was teeming. As we approached the Hotel, amongst the crowds, a car made its way towards us-on our side of the road! The driver just did not comprehend and the gap was closing-fast. Ian hooted and gesticulated, to no effect, then suddenly, when the gap was no more than about 8 or 9 yards, the driver reacted as if stung by a wasp and veered over to his side of the road. He must have been foreign. On arrival, and with heart still thundering from the crazy foreigner, we were greeted by Ruth who had done a sterling job in securing parking for us right in front of the hotel. What a team player. We were booked in the hotel restaurant but the weather was so lovely we elected to eat outside. The food was good and as always the company was great, gentle chatter, an ice cream or two, the sun beating softly on our backs, really this is England at its best, this is LoH at is best. Join us next month for the Ladies of Harley Ride, details provided by Elaine on page 13.

We’ll stop for lunch at the Halfway Inn at Halfway at midday to enjoy lunch in what can only be described as some seriously relaxing yet interesting surroundings…..I’ve never known anywhere to have jewelled wallpaper in the Ladies before.

Check out their website (www.halfwayinn-newbury.co.uk) After lunch we’ll head across the Lambourne Downs in a different direction to enjoy its astounding views across the county before finishing at Q-Gardens in Steventon, a mere 24 miles later. Take the opportunity to stop off for an afternoon cuppa or homemade ice cream (the Jaffa cake was nice!) before saying our ‘Goodbyes’ and each taking our own way back home, or back to the dealership.
