Climb onto a motorcycle, any motorcycle, and the seriousness of life melts away.
Doesn't matter if riding for you is about a sweeping mountain road, a blast along a bush trail, sliding around a dirt oval, or chugging down to the shops for a loaf of bread. No matter how you take your motorcycle, it just plain delivers that sense of Feel Good like no other.
The people organising this Festival aim to celebrate that motorcycle zing, and pack as many jolts of it as possible into a long weekend.
Hence the flat track, the hill climb, the customs, the ride-in cinema showing motorcycle classics, the Globe of Death, the motorcycle trade show and so forth.
So just embrace it. This is about grass roots. Ride to the Festival and you park for free. Go for a spin around the flat track. Think your motorcycle has got something special, let’s all have a look at it. Enter in the customs, no charge. It’s a People’s Choice contest. You might win and be showered with praise and cash.
