    Open Road - Destination Ricks Garage

    Open Road - Destination Ricks Garage

    Ricks Garage is definitely a must do destination back in time.

    The first thing you notice when you arrive at Ricks is the upbeat busy vibe and the Retro façade. Once inside you are warped back in time with floor to ceiling memorabilia.

    Ricks garage is an American style bar and diner, with a large beer garden and also has a whiskey bar. Ricks has everything you could possibly want for in food, beverages and a great atmosphere.

    If you’re riding from Toowoomba, be sure to go through the picturesque Somerset Dam Region and on to the stunning hinterland town of Maleney and Monteville, which is abuzz with B&B accommodation, café’s and unique retail shopping. 

    Ricks Garage will not disappoint and neither will the scenic road there, no matter which direction you are coming from.

    Ricks Garage also hosts a yearly event Time Warp Festival. "Celebrating the very things that make Ricks Garage a Sunshine Coast institution - rockabilly music, hot rods and pin-up dress. Add in quality local food, a vibrant atmosphere, and family entertainment, and it’s clear to see why the event has grown exponentially in its short life" Check out the webpage for more info about the Time Warp Festival and Ricks Garage 

     

    FLHOG Engine build

    FLHOG Engine build

    We heard there was a guru technician in our midst, who people source by reputation to build their engines. Here is a time-lapse video of Tech Tommy from Darling Downs Harley Davidson dropping in our sweet engine upgrade, Screaming Eagle 107-114 (125hp) stage 4 kit. After having a chat to Tommy about my riding style (ride it like you stole it) he tuned and tweaked my engine to an inch of its life to get all the horses running perfect for me. 

    Tommy has also built every aspect of FLHOG's upgrade from the engine to the complete replacement front end, handle bars and exhaust fitment. 

    FLHOG Unleashing The Beast

    FLHOG Unleashing The Beast

    We purchased our first touring model Harley, for comfortable 2 up riding. As standard they are a great looking bike. But as most Harley owners, they add their signature style to their ride, to make it their own. We also felt the need to shed the stigma of being an older persons ride and we didn't want the bike to be the same 'Standard' model straight out of the box.

    Unleashing the beast was a 7 month project. We have listed what we have done to our ride, aka FLHOG. 

    The business FULL HOG evolved from this build, as we wanted to create our own brand of bagger parts, that are built right here in Australia.
