Police host Helmets and Hoods Motorcycle Expo 

Event for motorcycle safety

Queensland Police are hosting a Helmets and Hoods Motorcycle Expo at willowbank raceway, west of Brisbane, on Thursday November 18 from 4-8pm.

It’s a strange time to be hosting a motorcycle event, especially since it is a night-time event on the fringes of urban Ipswich where there are kangaroos roaming at night!

The flyer features MX Pro Todd Waters (pictured above) with whom you can have your photo taken at the QPS stall. Not sure why a dirt bike rider is a feature of a “road” safety event!

Those points aside, you can be assured there will be the usual messaging from the police about seed and rider vulnerability.

Senior Constable Kerrin Sheedy says the event is “an opportunity to network and share information, whilst raising awareness of motorcycle safety and security”.

The event will include motorcycle demonstrations from  Mount Cotton Revolution Rider Training, presentations from QPS Road Policing, a Standard Drinks presentation from Ipswich District Crime Prevention Unit, Spinal and Brain injuries presentations, as well as a sausage sizzle by Ulysses.

There will also be raffle prizes.
