Showtime up north
British Motor Cycle Owners Association of Mackay All Bike Show
18-19 July, 2015 – Mackay Qld
Another successful All Bike Show was held in Mackay in July, and it was probably one of the most diverse ones in the thirty two years of the show. The quality of the machinery was very high and the organizers are always left wondering where a lot of the machinery comes from with different bikes showing up each year. Kawasaki had Luke Burgess’ race bike and several others in a strong dealer display, and there were some beautiful Ducatis that were better than new. The Best Competition class was won by a CR750 Honda replica that had a great display on the problems that can happen casting your own pistons. Best Club display was won by the Whitsunday Speedway Club with a display of Long Track sliders and solos. Lucky Keizer had his Merlin-engined bike there although not quite complete, he started and ran the beast several times during the show bringing down any loose rust and debris from the tin roof and impressing all the onlookers.
It is pretty hard to describe a Bike show and the best I can do for this is to say the same people regularly travel from as far away as Gladstone to Emerald and the Atherton Tableland to have a look, socialize and enjoy The All Bike Show, so if you are looking for something to do 16th & 17th July next year put it in your calendar.
