Even Mayor Gary Rush rode into the show on a Harley Davidson. 280 bikes was the count plus heaps of trads displays and the Shannons Big Rig made for plenty to look at. Even the prostect on a new motorcycle race circuit was embraced by the Mayor. Looking forward to next year already!

“Greg Hirst has been a fixture in the Australian motorcycle community for many years now. Well known for his advocacy work through the motorcycle community and for those caught in the cycle of homelessness, Greg has been riding motorcycles for over thirty years.
“From his adventures growing up with bikes to the Bathurst Motorcycle Riots or riding on to Telstra Stadium in a motorcycle spectacular, Greg’s met a few characters along the way. He’s a strong family man too, with his loving wife Colleen and five children, and for years has been heavily involved with political rallying which has seen fantastic success.
“As well as having written articles for a range of national motorcycle magazines, for the last 14 years Greg has worked on many regular motorcycle features in the Daily and Sunday Telegraph’s Cars Guide and continues his 30 year involvement with Brotherhood Christian Motorcycle Club where he serves as Sgt-at-Arms. My Motorcycling Life is a lighthearted look at a true Australian motorcyclist doing what he loves.” — Miles Rangeley, editor: ‘My Motorcycle Life’ and ‘Live to Ride’ Magazine.
