Christine and Ian caused a stir at Arcare Helensvale St James when they brought in their impressive motorbikes for residents to inspect. Henry, Kev and Robert, residents from Arcare Sanctuary Manors, also came to have a peek at the Harley Davidson and Suzuki Boulevard.
Everyone laughed when the ladies came out to crash the men’s afternoon, wanting to get their photos taken with the bikes. ‘This is heaven,’ Shirley said, ‘I’ve always wanted to get close to a Harley Davidson.’
Staff were surprised to learn that some of the residents rode bikes in their younger days. Oswald shared photos of himself riding his Coventry Eagle bike from when he was 18, saying that he had to start it with his foot. Christine and Ian were very impressed to hear of the many bikes he has had throughout his life, from an AJS 500C to a Harley Davidson with a side car.
The men enjoyed an afternoon of reminiscing and chatting about their favorite bikes.
