POINT Vernon woman Hazel James has taken a trip down memory lane in style as she celebrates her 80th birthday.

As a surprise gift, Hazel's daughter Benita organised a special ride for her in the sidecar of a Harley-Davidson - a seat she was all too familiar with.

Ms James and her late husband Noel spent their married years riding around the Fraser Coast; from Munna Creek where they grew up to Hervey Bay when they retired.

"The last time I rode in one of these would have been nearly 30 years ago," Ms James said.

"We used to ride to dances and tennis on Sunday.
