Rev heads: Cobram motorbike enthusiasts Barry Dickson and son Kobey are looking forward to the Sun Country Motorcycle Show and Shine in Yarrawonga.
Rev-heads will flock to the Yarrawonga Foreshore this weekend for the town’s first Sun Country Motorcycle Show and Shine.
More than 1000 people are expected to view about 300 modern and vintage motorcycles.
Event organiser Barry Bennett said he hoped the popularity of the annual car show, now in its 14th year, would spread to the new event.
He said the event started at 10
‘‘I reckon we’ll have more mums, dads and kids coming along,’’ Mr Bennett said.
‘‘Because kids love motorcycles and just having the thunder at noon — all revving up there — it’s just something different.’’
He said the event started after interest from motorcyclists attending Yarrawonga’s car show.
‘‘One of the motorbike members there, he won the best motorbike award at the car show and shine,’’ Mr Bennett said.
‘‘I said, ‘Where’s your bike?’ and he said, ‘Where all motorbikes are at all car show and shines: down the back’.
‘‘And he just said, jokingly, ‘We should have one ourselves,’ and I thought afterwards that it could be a good idea.
‘‘The Yarrawonga police thought it was a fantastic idea.’’
Mr Bennett said motorcycle enthusiasts would enjoy the variety of bikes on display.
He said there would be a 1914 Indian Hedstram eight-valve racer, a 1924 four-cylinder Ace, an English 1931 Rudge and former police motorcycle Aerial Square 4.
Mr Bennett said Victoria Police would also be hosting a display of historical motorcycles, and motorcyclist and State Member for Murray Valley Tim McCurdy would arrive at 10
Mr Bennett said registration opened at 8
