Assistant Director

I am Clive Rothwell, I didn’t actually start riding until 20 years ago. For my 35th Birthday Donna bought me a weekend bike course and booked the test for 1st thing on the Monday. I passed and went through a series of Japanese bikes, mainly Yamaha but a Kawasaki somewhere in the mix. It was September 2013, my XJR 1300 was in for service, I was waiting for it and noticed a 2005 Dyna Superglide in the showroom. I instantly swapped my bike and a couple of grand for it and became a Harley owner. A new sissy seat and back rest and some luggage and Donna on the back we were ready to ride but didn’t fancy doing it on our own. We joined the Oxford Chapter in January 2014, The Dyna was perfect but in March 2015 an Ultra Low was winking at me, only 400 miles on the clock so I bought it, did the summer riding season on it but decided it was not my bike. In October 2016 I swapped both out and I am now a proud owner of a Softail Deluxe CVO which I hope to ride until I physically can’t so hopefully at least 20 years of companionship to come.
