Sydney Motorcycle Show.... Part one.

Yesterday my wife, our youngest daughter and myself attended the Sydney Motorcycle Show. This event is part of the Australian Motorcycle Expo that travels up the eastern side of Australia every year. From Melbourne to Sydney and then onto the Gold Coast in Queensland.

The major manufactures were there in force. Showing off next years models to a bike hungry crowd. I was disappointed that Victory did not have stand at all. They had a big display at the Melbourne show. All we saw of these big v-twins was two bikes tucked away right down the back of the dome on a display for some importer.

I wanted to photograph the new BMW F800GS. So many people swarmed over it I could not get a lense in at all. This is good for BMW. I bet they sell bucket loads of them.

The fortnightly magazine, Australian Motorcycle News had a great stand. They had a jet powered bike on display. Also a replica of Daimler's 1885 wooden-framed "bone crusher" motorcycle.

Lets have a look at some of the bikes on display. Both inside the dome and those ridden there.

KTM's RC8s.


Yamaha's new VMax. Inside and out.



Moto Morini.

More to come in part two.
