Meet your main ride leader and owner operator, Fred Madderom.
Fred has many years of touring experience, having toured both small (5 riders) and large groups (50+ riders) to all parts of Australia and the Outback including: Broken Hill, Ayres Rock (Uluru), The Olgas (Kata Tjuta), Kings Canyon, Alice Springs, Coober Pedy, Mt Isa, Longreach, Nullarbor Plains, Esperance, Albany, Margaret River and on to Perth.
Fred has toured groups through Cairns, Daintree, Airlie Beach, Southport, Lennox Head, the Snowy Mountains, the Great Ocean Road and extensively around Tasmania. He’s travelled the entire Australian coastline from Cairns to Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne, Perth, Broome and back to Cairns. If a Harley can go there, then so do we!
In addition to motorcycle touring, Fred has driven across the Simpson Desert, then right across the middle of Australia through Uluru, Docker River, along the Gunbarrel Highway, up the Canning Stock Route (14 days on one of the most isolated 4WD tracks in the world), across to Exmouth and Ningaloo Reef up to Broome and the Dampier Peninsula, to the Aboriginal Communities of Cape Leveque, returning across the Gibb River Road to Kununurra, then across to Cairns and back down the Queensland and NSW coasts to Sydney.
Fred knows Australia.
Like you, Harleys are our weapon of choice; we're part of the same tribe.
There are motorcycle riders, and there are Harley-Davisdon riders. Riding a Harley-Davidson offers a unique perspective like no other.
On our tours, you'll be riding with like minded people who speak the same language, Harley. Consider them mates you just haven't met yet.
For many years now, we've been leading rides far and wide to all corners of Australia. We know the best roads for our style of riding, and the most picturesque and interesting places to experience along the way.
Long standing members of the H.O.G. community.
Fred understands Harley Owners Group and Harley-Davidson riders, having been the Founding Director of Sydney H.O.G. Chapter for its first four years, Assistant Director for another three years, NSW/ACT Regional Director for three years looking after thirteen H.O.G. Chapters and also teaching at Harley Officer Training in Australia on numerous occasions. In addition Fred was the National Rally coordinator at Tamworth, NSW – Australia’s most attended H.O.G. Rally to date.
Back in 2013 (110th H-D Anniversary) Fred travelled to Milwaukee and attended Harley Officer Training, the Harley-Davidson Museum and the ‘Steel Toe’ Factory Tour. In 2015 he rode the prototype LiveWire Harley-Davidson at the Sepang International Circuit in Selangor, Malaysia.

We believe that Australia is up there with the best countries in the world to explore by way of motorcycle. We absolutely love it, and we're sure you will too. We run these tours because we want to share this remarkable experience with you, and enrich your life as it has ours. Your time is precious, your holidays even more so, and if you like riding as much as we do, we believe there's no better way to spend your holiday and time doing what you love in one of the most beautiful places on earth.
We also understand that this is your holiday and you rightfully want it to be the experience of a lifetime. So let us organise everything down to the smallest detail so you can sit back and... ride.
We'll quote on costs including; airport pick-ups, transfers, motorcycle hire, insurance, spare bike, support vehicle, accommodation, meals, one-way destinations, additional tours, activities, even flights if you so choose. All inclusions and exclusions will be communicated clearly to you up front.
We can organise a transfer to your accommodation on arrival in Sydney, Melbourne or Brisbane. From there, we’re also able to organise city tours and show you the best each city has to offer.
For tours of seven days or longer, an introduction dinner and orientation ride will be held acquainting you with local road rules, riding on the left hand side of the road, traffic cameras and average speed cameras, as well as local traffic rules like ‘hook turns’ (turning right from the left side of the road).
Our tour guides cater to your agreed requirements and a daily run sheet will be issued, minimising the chance of anyone getting lost.
