We are proud to once again have the Ride Forever motorcycle section of ACC as the Name Sponsor of the show in 2017. ACC have been running Ride Forever training courses since 2012. Courses costs are minimal ranging from $20 to $50 with ACC putting their money where their levies are and subsidising $250 of each courses actual cost.

Polaris are again a Key Sponsor of the show. 2017 is the 50th anniversary of Burt Munro’s record at Bonneville. Indian are sponsoring Burt’s great nephew Lee Munro on a bike at Bonneville and will also be preparing a Scout as a tribute to the anniversary to be auctioned for the show. Watch this space for a picture. The bike above was the 2016 Army Indian auction.
The good guys and girls at Biketranz are Key Sponsors and have been involved with the show from Day 1. Biketranz live and breathe bikes and this is reflected in the love and care they lavish on all the bikes they transport.
abcphotosigns do all of our printing and artwork, the billboards you see on the motorways, the wraps on the Biketranz vans, the posters in bike shops, the banners outside the venue, the flyers, tickets, voting cards … you get the idea? … they do heaps! This year they also did the design work (Yay Tanya!) which we are rapt with. They’ll have a little stand at the show year so drop by and say Hi … real nice people and great to work with.
Royal Enfield came to the show for the first time in 2016. They had a small stand … “just testing the water” … we must have done something right because this year they are back again with a much larger stand (and a couple of other brands they support) … BUT WAIT THERE’S MORE … they are donating a Royal Enfield Classic 350 as a door prize. Its a stunning bike, classic looks with modern reliability.
Nick and the team at Star has been stance supporters of the show since year one (5 years now!) and are again this year sponsoring the $1000 cash awards for Best Bike and Best Club. You shouldn’t miss the Star stand for its great welcome and yummy jaffas if nothing else. Really competitive bike insurance and people who genuinely understand bikers.
Karel and the team at ProRider are also long term supporters of the show and are again putting up $1000 cash for the Classic Bike of the Year award. This is for the best restoration of a classic bike carried out in the 18 months prior to the show. ProRider are acredited Ride Forever (ACC) trainers, run a wide range of their own training courses and lead bike trips overseas. Karel and many of her team are champion bike racers so riding with them is as much fun as it is educational.
Century Yuasa started with the show way back in year one and this year are supporting the People’s Choice award with a $1000 cash prize. All visitors to the show have the oppportunity to vote for their favourite bike. Century Yuasa are also donating a number of battery vouchers for several of the Marque awards. Yuasa are the OEM battery of choice in a lot of bikes so get along to their stand and check them out.
