Riding a Classic 1936 Harley Flathead Down Loveland Pass Colorado

Buzz Kanter of American Iron Magazine rode this 1936 Harley VLH flathead across the US – from Daytona Beach, FL to Tacoma, WA on the 2016 Motorcycle Cannonball.

Here is some on board video of his riding it down from the crest of Loveland Pass Colorado – almost 12,000 feet above sea lever.

Yes, he is chasing modern bikes down these sweepers and switchbacks – modern bikes with modern suspension (the VLH is a rigid frame rear) modern tires (not like the skinny ones on the VLH) and modern disc brakes (the VLH has marginal drum brakes) on my 1936 Harley riding.
