Default A Classic

I love to shoot motorcycles. Came across this classic today, what do you think?

Used to own a 1950 Hydra Glide.

Electra Glide was supposedly introduced circa 1965.
In the PIX, looks like it has an oil cooler or some such added which I am not aware was standard then (but might have been).

Those Harleys ran hot and seemed to be tough on valve guides (as well as stretching of drive chains).

I rode BMW's most of my adult life. One road hazard I was always alert for were parts that came off of those wonderful Harleys. They do photograph well though.

Since you have posted this in the Photo Critique forum, let me offer a critique:
+ Nice close up. I would prefer a crop to include the entire headlamp.
- Image looks a little soft. I think there's a lot of detail in the composition that would be accentuated by a sharper image.

I would also soften the focus and desaturated the color on the yellow posts. Do like that bike.
