The Black Rose

David Lee September 30, 2015

THE beauty, grunt and freedom that the Black Rose gives its owners, Lisa and Shaun (Hookey) Hooker, are the reasons they couldn’t pass up the opportunity to own the Harley Davidson Road King two years ago.
Boasting 1600cc of pure power, cruise control, 6 speed transmission, white wall tyres, a guardian angel guarding the motor and skull bolts keeping the number plate in place the Black Rose, as it is more affectionately known by Lisa and Shaun, helps them live life to the fullest.
Lisa and Shaun said, “It’s like riding a leather lounge suite down the highway.
“We both had always been keen to have a bike and it was a tick off the bucket list when we were presented with the opportunity to own her.
“Any excuse we can come up with to use the Harley we take it.
“We take it out several times a week on day treks to Dookie, Warburton Ranges, Euroa, anywhere really where there is a good bakery café.
“You can’t beat the feeling. It’s comfort and fun all in one.”
