When I mentioned a ride on a Harley Davidson was something I wanted to do, my eldest son took note. When the voucher arrived from Wheels of Thunder for Christmas, I was quite apprehensive and wished I had kept my mouth shut.

However, I got brave and booked my ride for my 73rd birthday.

Paul arrived with his beautiful bike and kitted me out in a leather jacket and helmet, and off we went. What I hadn't realised were the smells that you never get from inside a car ........... and the wind, wow.

I had so much fun, it was the best birthday I've ever had.

If you want to give an elderly friend a thrill, I can thoroughly recommend this awesome experience.




As a novice when it comes to motorcycles, I did wonder whether I had signed myself up for 2 hours of terror! It was completely the opposite though and will be considered a fond memory of my first trip to NZ. For anyone who hasn't been on the back of a bike before I would highly recommend that they experience their first ride with you. From the time of booking right through to the ride you were always ensuring that I would be comfortable and safe at all times. I felt so comfortable that I could rest my hands on my knees for half the ride which I would never imagine ever happening! I will definitely consider doing another ride next time I visit Hamilton.

  Thanks for an awesome ride on Saturday. Weather perfect, scenery amazing.    It brought back many memories of 

“on the road and carefree with the wind on you and just relaxing”

Your bike looked superb and sounded even better and I felt so at ease with you. Time went too quickly and hoping to do it again sometime.





Many thanks Paul for a comfortable, relaxing and most enjoyable ride.

The scenic green valleys and blue rolling ocean waves onto the beautiful beach with surfers surfing in, were amazing. Your highly polished Harley sparkled in the sun as we cruised along the bush clad country side. The thrill of hearing your Harley beef-up to pass a car was wonderful under your careful skilled driving guidance. Feeling relaxed and safe I thoroughly recommend anyone to book a ride with you for the beautiful adventure.





A big shout out to Paul for a fantastic ride out to Raglan, best views and wonderful weather. I was privileged to receive a gift from a friend to take a ride on Paul's Harley and enjoyed the experience, just AWESOME!!




I was given a gift voucher for a Harley Davidson motorcycle ride to Raglan for my 85th birthday. What a great day for a thrilling ride!

Paul, I have ridden pillion on many different motorbikes but yours takes the cake. Your Harley is the Rolls Royce of bikes. It was as comfortable as riding in a Jaguar or Mercedes-Benz. Your handling of the "beast" was superb. At no time did I feel any concern. I hope you can take me pillion riding again in ten years when I'm 95.
Thanks a million and happy riding.


I have had the most exhilarating 1 hour chauffeured tour on this Harley Davidson™ motorcycle. All equipment was provided which allowed me to sit back and enjoy the pristine sights of the rural countryside. The guide (Paul) is a very careful rider which gave me the confidence to relax and take in the sights and scenes. I can heartily recommend this tourist experience to all who like to be spoilt.

I was quite apprehensive about riding on the back of this pristine motorcycle, but Paul, my chauffeur, put my mind at ease right from the start and gave me some tips to make the ride more enjoyable and comfortable. Paul is very safety conscious and has a great selection of gear to make sure I was fitted out properly. We kept at a nice pace throughout the ride and I felt confident and was able to relax. I enjoyed the sights and sounds around me, especially feeling the power and sound of such a well-known icon as a Harley Davidson™ motorcycle beneath me. This was a unique experience and I would recommend for anyone to have a go.
