60th party rolls on
The first event in what is scheduled to be a six-month rolling road show to celebrate Yamaha’s 60th birthday took place at in August at Chris Watson Motorcycles, Cessnock, NSW. A host of Yamaha legends were in attendance to greet the crowds and to sign a limited-edition poster featuring Mr Motocross champions Stephen Gall and Craig Dack, enduro legend Geoff Ballard and road race stars Kevin Magee and Kevin Curtain. One lucky visitor went away with a free special 60th anniversary TT-R50E, and over 300 people enjoyed a free sausage sizzle, live music and other attractions on the day. The show also featured a display of significant bikes including Gall’s very first YZ250A, an original DT1, the V4 RZ500, and Kevin Curtain’s Formula Oz-winning YZF-R1. The 60th anniversary show continues throughout Australia and concludes at the 2016 Penrite Broadford Bike Bonanza at Easter.
