Throt­tle Roll rolls on

Old Bike Australasia - - OUT’N’ABOUT -

The 2017 Throt­tle Roll Street Party re­turned with a bang to cel­e­brate its 5th year on Easter Satur­day, with 6,000 party go­ers soak­ing up the at­mos­phere at Aus­tralia’s great­est cel­e­bra­tion of mo­tor­cy­cles, live mu­sic and food in Sydney’s bustling In­ner West. The Throt­tle Roll Ride, a 200-strong cruise via the Royal Na­tional Park kicked off the street party bang on at the 12pm start time. There was plenty to see with stun­ning cus­tom mo­tor­cy­cles on dis­play upon the fa­mous wall of scaf­fold­ing, along with man­u­fac­turer dis­plays show­cas­ing their lat­est range of life­style mo­tor­cy­cles and mer­chan­dise. The huge num­ber of mo­tor­cy­cles parked in sur­round­ing streets cre­ated a show out­side of the show, some­thing the Throt­tle Roll is renowned for with hoards of rid­ers from Sydney and be­yond mak­ing the pil­grim­age to the an­nual street party.

Throt­tle Roll was once again a hit with fam­i­lies, with the Easter Bunny hand­ing out free choco­late eggs and the free buck­ing bull pro­vid­ing plenty of en­ter­tain­ment, keep­ing the kids en­ter­tained whilst mum and dad worked out how to spend the col­lege fund on new mo­tor­cy­cles for them­selves. The Throt­tle Roll Team is proud to an­nounce that the event will be back next year, not only in Sydney but also in Los An­ge­les, USA. From Stephen Bro­holm
