  Bike name: NESSIE  
     
  Bike model: Softail Custom 2001  
     
  Tech Info: The name of the bike is Nessie (My nickname in the club). The bike was bought in 2001 and immediately stripped and customized. A lot of Ness-stuff, special painting, high sissybar, ape hanger.In 2002 I have put a side-car on this bike so I could ride with my 2 kids. In 2006 I met Annick who rode a Dyna Super Glide sport and took our girl on the back, so I sold my side-car back. The side-car ruined the engine block. After a complete revise of the engine, I rebuilded the bike again with new mirrors, painting, soloseat, higher Ape-hanger,… My “Nessie” is still my favourite bike, My other bike is a 2006 Electra Glide that I use for work and long trips, and is used by Mike McKeon ( yes the same that is member of Treviso chapter ) every time he visits Europe. I have now 126.000 kms on the Nessie and this year I will be riding the European Posse Ride with it and our honeymoon to the Lake Garda, European Hog rally.  
     
  Comment about my bike: Nessie brought me through Europe and learned me a lot about myself. She is hard, loud and sometimes stubborn, but she always brought me home safe and made me discover the “road “ Thanks to this bike I have met a lot of nice people who became friends and hey I am even a proud member of the Treviso Chapter now. I have tattooed her on my back as an eternal memory and the symbol of my new life (before I was a very decent, boring man with vest and tie).
