Honassan is a student from Indonesia and wanted to have a look around Sydney. What better way than on a Harley so he booked the Explore Sydney Harley ride.
Sydney Harbour Bridge
Firstly, they rode over the Sydney Harbour Bridge. 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’s nicknamed ‘The Coathanger’ because of its arch-based design. It is the largest steel arch bridge in the world.
Next, they rode past Kirribilli House. Kirribilli House is the secondary official residence of the Prime Minister of Australia. After that, they rode around the corner to Jeffrey Street Wharf. From here, the views across Sydney Harbour towards the Sydney Opera House and the CBD are magnificent. In addition, it also has an up-close view of the side and underneath of the bridge. A perfect place to stop for photos.
The Kirribilli Loop
They rode under the north side of the bridge and continued on their tour. The underside of the northern end of the SHB – Sydney Harbour Bridge – is very interesting. The Kirribilli Loop was finished by riding past Luna Park and the North Sydney Olympic Pool. So far, the Explore Sydney Harley ride was a lot of fun.
Then they rode the back way along the north shore and past the lovely posh Balmoral Beach. Everyone who comes here loves it! Balmoral Beach is not so well known by visitors and tourists, but the stunning natural beauty of the beach and surrounds make it well worth a visit.
Spit Bridge lookout
Crossing the Spit Bridge is fun and then it was a fun ride up a windy hill to the lookout. From there, you can see great views of Middle Harbour. The Spit Bridge is a steel and concrete girder bridge with a bascule lift span. However, the hour was almost up so Phil our rider turned around and went back different route.
Then it was back over the Harbour Bridge and Honassan was dropped back off at his home. In conclusion, the Explore Sydney Harley ride was a huge success. He saw places he never knew existed and saw some beautiful views of Sydney Harbour.
