Thunder on the Hill - part 1

Posted by
Stephen (Canberra, Australia) on 19 November 2012 in Sport & Recreation and Portfolio.

Last month, the Harley Owners Group (HOG) held their annual event in Canberra. The rally - Thunder on the Hill - finished with a Show 'n' Shine bike show at Gold Creek. Just over the hill from where I live - so I headed over to check it all out. Hope you can come along for the ride on this new series!

Here, Harleys arrive for the bike show.

Sweet... I like the low rider style, kind of like this but with the handle bars a teeny bit higher :-)
