The Harley 60th birthday tour was a present from some of her best friends. The friends live out in western NSW so they couldn’t be with her to celebrate. Riding on a Harley is one of Lyn’s favourite things to do, so her friends thought this would be the ideal present. We organised and emailed a Gift Voucher to her friends who emailed it to her. Lyn loved it and within the week had rung us to organise the Harley 60th birthday tour.
4 hours seems a long time but it goes so quickly
4 hours seems a long time but it goes so quickly. Especially in Sydney where there is so much to see! Our Harley rider Syl, picked her up from her daughter’s home in the western suburbs. He took her on the adventure of a lifetime!
iconic Sydney Harbour Bridge
Firstly they rode onto the M4, a freeway which leads into Sydney city. It also leads onto the iconic Sydney Harbour Bridge, which looks so different from the back of a Harley. We always tell our passengers to look up and enjoy the unique view. The more than 6,000,000 rivets are so interesting and the arch is so iconic. It is a wonderful view without the roof and sides of a tin can (car) blocking it.
Continuing on, they rode along the main thoroughfare of Military Road. This leads to the Spit Bridge and crossing it is always fun. There are lovely views of Middle Harbour and hundreds of yachts. Riding further up the hill they rode into Seaforth and Clontarf. Their first stop was for a photo at Tania Park. The park is adjacent to Dobroyd Head which offers amazing views of Sydney, Middle and North Harbours. This view is always fresh and beautiful, one we never tire of.
Northern Beaches and Ku-ring-gai Chase NP
Next, they rode into Manly and to North Head which has lovely views across Sydney Harbour to the city. Back into Manly and along the coastline, they rode past Freshwater Beach, Curl Curl Beach and Dee Why Beach. They stopped for a quick stretch at Long Reef, where this photo was taken. Then it was back onto the Harley before riding a bit further north, past Mona Vale, Avalon Beaches and a few more. Coffee was calling so they had a break at Church Point and a caffeine hit before hopping back on the Harley and riding through the lovely Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park to Terry Hills.
Now it felt like being back in civilisation. However, where did the 4 hours go? Time was just about up so they rode south, onto the M2 before Lyn was dropped back at her daughter’s place. In conclusion, the Harley 60th birthday tour was a huge success.
