NMR Ride – Saturday July 1, 2017 (V3)
This ride will take us to the Luddenham Cafe on The Northern Road at Luddenham. As usual, our route is not the direct route but the more scenic route going via Wallgrove, Erskine Park, Mamre and Badgery’s Creek roads.
Today, in conjunction with the New Members Ride there is a 100th year celebration of Harley-Davidsons being sold in Australia. After the ride we are all invited back to our sponsoring dealers premises (Frasers) for a BBQ lunch and celebrations. Frasers will also be offering 15% discount in store (excepting motorcycles).
The New Members Ride is a monthly ride where members both old and new can get acquainted participating in an easy ride. This monthly ride is well patronised by older members, however, because it is a fun way to catch up with ride buddies and squeeze in a Saturday morning ride. Sometimes we don’t even have any new members to meet. Perhaps it should just be called the Members Ride because some thought it was only for new members.
What in this edition:
– Celebrating 100 years of Harley-Davidson in Australia is Bill Davidson, great-grandson of the co-founder of Harley-Davidson seen here with a 1917 model Harley-Davidson in original condition. The location is the Morgan & Wacker dealership in Newstead, Queensland which was originally established in Brisbane in 1917. It was the first Harley-Davidson dealership in Australia and the first Harley-Davidson dealership outside the US.
