Indian Scout Bobber prize for BDR 1 Dayer

Indian Scout Bobber prize for BDR

You could win an Indian Scout Bobber simply by registering early for the annual Black Dog Ride 1 Dayer events on March 18.

The prize Indian Scout Scout is not the first time Indian Motorcycle Australia has been involved with the Black Dog Ride.

Last year they offered a Scout as a 1 Dayer prize and raised $50,700 with an online auction of a limited-edition Jack Daniels Indian Chief Vintage.

To be in the running to win the Indian Scout Bobber worth $18,995, register online before March 9.

The winner will be drawn on the morning of the 1 Dayer in Melbourne.

The Black Dog Ride 1 Dayer began eight years ago for riders who couldn’t afford the time for the big annual event.

It has grown every year and there are now more than 40 regions with a 1 Dayer event.

This year there will be new 1 Dayers in Tamworth, Toowoomba, Albury-Wodonga, Ballarat, Echuca, Geelong, Mildura, Mornington, Melbourne North, Penshurst and Wangaratta.

Black Dog Riders uniting on one day under one banner with one voice amplifies a national message of mental health awareness. The aim of BDR is to prevent the tragic loss of eight Aussie lives a day to suicide.

New BDR CEO David Peach says “awareness is the best catalyst for promoting help seeking behaviour and preventing the tragedy of suicide”.

On the Thursday, riders will meet with WSBK champions in Melbourne before riding back to lap the Phillip Island circuit.
