charlesb52, Sportzilla and SON.

My first name is Charles, and my surname starts with a B.               
Because charlesB59 wasn't that easy to remember, I chose charlesb52, like a Boeing..
Motorcycling since 1978 I started with a Kawa Z400, then a CX500 and in 1982 a Triumph Bonneville T140E.

Since 1991 I'm riding and caring Sportsters; from 1991 till 2008 a tuned XL883>1200, called Sportzilla1 and from 2008 the XR1200, technically and optically tuned too: Sportzilla2.


Crossing Europe with joy: "Tanoshii!" they say in Japan, one of the most Sportster-minded countries in the world.

My friend Bon advised me and now I use 楽しい ! as motto.


With peace I throw my Sportster-bombs in the internet world.

Not only the Sportzilla site, but also the Sportster Owners Netherlands (SON) forum & club has become more and more important for me since I started it in 2006: putting the sportsters on the global 'motor map'.

Together with the members, I do whatever I can to let the forum grow in quantity and content.
