The thing I enjoyed the most was Russell’s company closely followed by the great experience
“The thing I enjoyed the most was the experience & knowledge shared during the trip – OUR DRIVER!!! Thank you for doing so much for us – So grateful.” Morgan
“The Captain went above and beyond expectation to make such a magnificent day for my partner & I. Thanks for making this a special day.” Josh
What a fun experience! I felt relaxed and safe in the sidecar. Seeing the countryside from a different perspective was awesome. I highly recommend it!
Old fashioned hospitality, personalised treatment & cool bike made this a most enjoyable day.
If you’re ever in the Canowindra area I definitely recommend you give this a go. Not only is this an absolute adrenaline rush but you also get the greatest sense of freedom.
Ok so I’m bias – Russ (aka Captain Barnacles) is my son – and yes I got a freebie. This was a great experience. A ride to Cargo for a cup of tea was perfect. At 87 yrs old this is for all those young at heart.
“The best adventure I have had in my life!” “Perfect Day, perfect driver, perfect bike!”
