Motorcycle Tattoo Picture

My motorcycle tattoo picture

This tat was done by "Doc Forbes" of Vancouver, BC. On my right arm is a skull with 13 on the forehead sitting atop Harley wings. The bar says RTL LTR - Ride to Live - Live To Ride. I designed it and Doc did it in early 1969. I took the photo myself using a mirror, which was a bit of a trick. The tat is in remarkably good shape, considering that it is now 43 years old. Tats have sure come a long way since then, both in designs and colours available. I am now retired and living in Mexico City, where last Saturday we had a rally to celibrate Harley's anniversary. Over five thousand riders occupied the square (Zocalo) in the center of the city before going on a run to an event out by the airport. Mexico does not limit the number of bikes that can ride in a group, so seeing two hundred bikes going on a run through the city is common, although the 5,000 was certainly a record. I ride a 1968 Harley-Davidson Sportster XLCH. -- Clayton Restall
