Yes it is....

What kind of bike do you have? (looks like a Harley(?)) I own two...

1) 2016 Harley Dyna Street Bob Factory Special Custom Order in Olive Gold Metallic. It is the 103 with the 5 speed. Custom bars, seat, bags, pipes, crash bars, clip on windshied, and daylighter headlight. 

2) 2004 Yamaha FZR1 with custom Hannigan built sport side car. I use this when my special needs son wants to ride with me.

My brother is a retired Industrial Engineer and owns 18 bikes; they are either new or restored, and he rides them all..... Harleys, BMW, Honda, Yamaha, and I believe an Indian and couple other brands.

Don't know how I missed this one.  The C-130 is the ultimate flying machine.  The C-130E was the first aircraft I worked on in my USAF career and has held me hostage ever since.  Really like that you included the HF wire antennaes, too many of these builds omit them.  Overall a clean build of a beautiful aircraft.  Thanks for sharing it.

I build models because I can't afford the real thing!
