Manx Radio Interview

One of the many things we do is to get involved doing work for Tourism Victoria as part of their Visiting Jounalists Program.
This week we had the pleasure of taking the Crew from Manx Radio out for a ride around Melbourne.
Producer Alex Brindley sat on the back of my bike and interviewed me as we rode along.

Summer is on the Way

Things are starting to heat up, and I'm not just talking about the weather here in Melbourne. I'm talking about how the demand for Harley Rides starts to build at this time of year.

As always, there is one weekend every December when the supply of Sidecars runs dry. This year that weekend is the 3rd and 4th December. This is the weekend when all the Corporates hold their Family Christmas parties. I have already had to reject a few bookings - even after trying a few avenues.

The first weekend in November always sees us at the Whittlesea Show. This year the weather was perfect, as we got rained out two years ago and it wasn't much better last year, and we were flat out on both days.

Last weekend saw us at the first of this years Family Chistmas Parties and the following day I spent six hours doing rides with my sidecar at a local School Fete.

On Monday we had the pleasure of taking two very nice people from Cornwall out for a 5 hour Tour of the Yarra Valley Wineries. The weather was a little inclement - but they took it all in their stride. We managed to dodge most of the rain and all had a great time.

To top everything off, I went to the Billy Joel Concert at Rod Laver Arena last Friday night. We had the best seat in the house. My life is now complete.....
