Harleys roar into action to make a dying wish come true

A CONTINGENT of up to 300 motorcycle riders converged with another convoy near Esk on Saturday to make a dying teen's wish come true.

The young Harley enthusiast, whose family has asked to remain anonymous, was in the Somerset region at lunchtime to greet the total of 600 riders and celebrate with them.

The 15-year-old has terminal cancer and is not expected to live to see next Christmas.

Rider Barry Allan said the Ipswich group met at Blacksoil about 10.30am Saturday, zooming off and up the Brisbane Valley Highway about 11am.

"This is all about creating some memories for him. He loves his Harleys," Mr Allan said.

The group celebrated with a barbecue and some drinks and raised a total of $3500 for the battling family. Some riders also brought gifts along.
