Dubbo plans motorcycle festival

Aim is to be biggest in southern hemisphere

Dubbo Bike Rally

After a false start in 2019, the Dubbo Motor Bike Rally in central NSW returns this May after a two-year pandemic hiatus.

Dubbo Motor Bike Rally Committee spokesman Wayne Amor says the region is the perfect place for a large motorcycle rally.

He has hopes to turn it into Australia’s version of the world’s largest rally, the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally in South Dakota.

The free event will be held in Talbragar Street on Saturday, 7 May.

There will be a motorcycle festival with free bike parking from 8am to 6pm in “Bike Street” which is between Macquarie and Darling streets.

“The aim of the rally is to promote safe riding and foster all the great things that riding a bike provides – fun, freedom and camaraderie,” Wayne says.

“We have invited the MCC of NSW, are in negotiations with the RMS Motorcycle Safety Unit and the NSW Police Force will be in attendance, as well as many other motorcycle related industries and outlet stalls.” 

Highlights include Lucky Kieser’s Merlin V-twin-powered trike and his new salt lake drag bike.

Wayne says Dubbo has many pubs, clubs and restaurants that welcome riders.

A detailed list of entertainment options will be provided on the Dubbo Motor Bike Rally  Facebook page as the event gets closer.
