HUNDREDS of Harley Davidsons roared through Bendigo in a memorial ride for Steve Elliott.
The ride drew more than 200 motorbike riders in honour of the late truck and motorcycle businessman.
Riders left from the Harley Central store that was owned by Steve and rode past his other business, Bendigo Truck Centre, before meeting for a memorial service in Strathdale.
Mr Elliott's sons Steve and Euan McGowan said the large crowds were testament to their father's influence.
"It's the sign of the man," Steve said.
"He would have been very proud to see so many people."
Euan said it was a fitting way to remember his father, who was involved in a range of different groups.
He said he had touched so many people during his life and left a big legacy.
"He's certainly left some big shoes to fill - size 13s."
Mr Elliott passed away on September 27, aged 51.
