Door Prize

Thanks to the good people at Royal Enfield, every entrant to the show will have the chance to go in the draw for this beautiful Classic 350. 

Built with a  ‘Made like a gun’ toughness, its dashing vintage-inspired looks are underscored by an Enfield trademark – dependability. The Classic 350 is a machine that you can count on, come hill, valley or mountain pass. Although it’s the smaller twin of the Classic 500, the Classic 350 will more than hold its own against other motorcycles in its class and then some. The Classic 350 shares its power-plant with the legendary Thunderbird Twinspark. It has the torque to flatten mountains, the fuel efficiency to cross entire ranges and comes in the same understated yet charming styling. This is a motorcycle that does not need to shout to be heard. Born of a rich heritage and bred with Royal elegance this 350 cc thumper has all the qualities of a typical Royal Enfield. 

And … LAMs Approved (Australia & New Zealand)Classic-350-chestnut-04

Stunning Saturday!

The first day of the show dawned clear at 7am, and whilst it rained 8am to 10am it didn’t stop the carpark and bike park being full to capacity by midday! I’d estimate 300 bikes in the driveway at one stage … and remember, parking for bikes is free … although cars are only $5 all day.

The buzz in the halls is fantastic … an amazing range of Classic and Custom bikes and large displays of the latest models from 15 of the new bike distributors.

Sunday is 9am to 5pm at the ASB Showgrounds. Adults $20, Kids aged 5-13 $5 and Families $40 (2 Adults and 2 Kids).

Fantastic Day and Great Deals

The show is ON! The weather has dawned beautifully … the show has already exceeded my wildest expectations … the displays look fantastic … it IS going to be the best show ever.

Heaps of amazing show specials … stunning bikes … great people … nice food … a teriffic Door Prize (The Polaris Outlaw) …

Look forward to seeing you all there …

Harley-Davidson Jumpstart

Never ridden a bike before … want to experience the feel and sound of riding a Harley-Davidson?

Harley-Davidson will have two of their famous Jumpstarts at the show.

  • No knowledge or previous motorcycle experience necessary.
  • Motorcycle will not topple over
  • You’ll mount the bike, set your boots on the foot pegs and fire up the engine under the watchful eye of trained personnel. Give the throttle a twist and hear that unforgettable Harley sound. Sitting comfortably on the bike, you’ll continue to shift through the gears – all safely and securely attached to the jumpstart platform.
