‘I look stunning when my engine is gunning’ says Harley Davidson from inside Fraser Motorcycles at Concord just outside of Sydney, Australia – and the word is that there is nothing else quite like this ‘Motorcycle Temple’ anywhere else in the world.
The ‘fashionably and rebelliously’ dressed opening night crowd were revved up by a high octane presentation of a $100,000 Ducati motorcycle at full throttle under strobes of laser lighting. This was duelled with the Fraser team roaring onto the stage astride their pulsating two wheeled charriots.
The motorcycle cognoscenti were all there from Hell’s Angels to lawyers and we even met a butler – and so we even saw ‘What The Butler Rode’ (sorry, couldn’t resist that one). Later on we snapped Ruby Rose with the new man in her life – Mister Harley Davidson.
Erika Heynatz kept all the guys motors a running as she took the controls for the formalities on stage.
Motorcycle enthusiast or not, a visit to Frasers Motorcycles will demonstrate that the owners, Catherine and Warren Fraser have taken as much care with style and the design of this Emporium as the manufacturers have with the signature bike brands they sell. Brands on sale include Ducatti, Harley Davidson, BMW, Yamaha and Honda.
As the ‘Martini Club’ band pumped out the sounds the crowd, fuelled by great cocktails, wines, beers and delicious canapés served up by Katering, played with the sleek machines. Later we motored on up to the first floor bar – yes that’s right there’s a fully stocked ‘New York’ style bar here too.
Thanks to the Frasers and the Trish Nicol Agency for organizing one of THE events of the year. Vroom vroom!
If you want to be part of this scene there’s a massive Grand Opening Party for everyone on Saturday 15 November 2008 from 9.00am. For further info www.frasermotorcycles.com.auShare
