A Royal Enfield at the NZ Show
The fifth running of the New Zealand Motorcycle Show will take place at the ASB Showgrounds in Auckland on the weekend of 16th and 17th September 2017, organised by the Papkura Rotary Club. Ride Forever are on board again as the prime sponsor and will be promoting rider safety and their range of safer riding courses. The show is run as a Charity Event, with all profits going back to support the community. Indian are again generously donating a bike which will be sold via Trademe starting at $1 reserve. In 2015 the Burt Munro themed bike drew enormous interest, with John Munro (Burt’s son) taking part in the closing stages of the auction. This bike is now on display in Invercargill alongside Burt’s original machines. 2017 is the 50th anniversary of Burt’s record. Every visitor to the show can register in a draw for a fantastic door prize, which this year is a Royal Enfield Classic 350. A major ride-in of Royal Enfield enthusiasts is being planned which will be a great spectacle and demonstrates the generosity and enthusiasm that Royal Enfield are putting into the show. A $1000 cash prize for the best restoration in the 18 months leading up to the show is again up for grabs. This is the New Zealand Classic Bike of the Year award, sponsored again by the good people at Pro Rider. Star Insurance are again demonstrating their support with similar prizes for Best Bike in Show and Best Club. For 2017 the show grows in size again and will have over 10,000 square metres of covered indoor displays. Bike parking for 2017 is again free with priority parking directly outside the exhibition halls. The major bike manufacturers will all be exhibiting with 14 brands confirmed to date, along with club and trade stalls with a wide range of motorcycle clothing, accessories and bike related products.
