The Great Ocean Ride

The Great Ocean Road is probably one of my personal favourite Harley Rides. Anyone who books this tour with us never fails to come away feeling that they have just completed one of the all time great experiences of their life.

Recently, a Rider Safety DVD was produced by the Victorian Motorcycle Advisory Council (VMAC) aimed at riders taking on the Great Ocean Road Challenge. VMAC is the body which advises the Victorian State Government on motorcycle issues. It is made up of members representing various motorcycle bodies and Victorian Government Angencies. I currently represent the Motorcycle Riders Association of Australia (MRAA) at VMAC meetings which are held quarterly.

If you want to get a good idea as to what the Great Ocean Road is really like and why it is my favourite ride, I sugest that you have a look at the Great Ocean Ride video here (note it is in two parts and includes some great footage of the Great Ocean Road):

AFL Footy Show

Its the big day - the last day in September - its Grand Final time in Melbourne. Every year the Nine Network holds the last episode of their AFL Footy Show at Rod Laver Arena.

This year HD Chauffeur Ride was on to supply a Harley Davidson to take a staring role in this years Player Revue.

The bike was needed for a skit involving ex-Geelong great Billy Brownless and the theme was Meatloaf's "Bat out of Hell. Here are some pics taken during rehearsal and during the show itself:

These ones were taken during the rehearsal on Thursday morning.
