Let's hear it for the bikers

Would you like a warm and fuzzy feel-good story? There are few enough around. In the city of Bunbury in Western Australia, a call was put out on social media by the mother of a boy with cerebral palsy. He was to celebrate turning 13 with a meal at McDonalds last Friday. His mother said the boy was a motor-cycle fan and would be 'stoked' if a motor-bike drove past while he was there. In return for a wave and a bit of a rev, she promised the motor-bike riders a smile and 'a million and one flaps of joy'. What she didn't expect was nearly 100 riders to ride past her son as he sat in his wheelchair outside McDonalds. Some brought gifts including a Harley helmet and T-shirt and the crowd that had gathered sang Happy Birthday. And sure enough, the new teenager was flapping his arms with delight. Photo is of a bike we saw in Melbourne. I think it was worth more than our hired motor-home.
Zane, who has cerebral palsy, loves motorbikes and so Keira said he would be "stoked" to see a two-wheeler on his big day.
