Bikes, Bikes and more Bikes…..It’s the Australian Motorcycle Expo 2010

Friday……

Its going to be a great weekend…Gold Coast trip!!  On Saturday Anthony and Vicki will be off to the Australian Motorcycle Expo at the Gold Coast Convention Centre and I’ll be at ScooterHQ getting a new tyre!

(…..and don’t forget to checkout Vicki’s website and blog.  Her work is fantastic, inspiring, brilliant, artistic, awesome, beautiful and absolutely incredible….)

Today we had to travel to office number two instead of the tiny office, Anthony had a chance to listen to more music, and today’s tracks cranking on the iPod were – Linkin Park – New Divide, Honeymoon Suite – What Does it Take, Megan McCauley – Wonder, and Dishwalla – Counting Blue Cars…..

The weather was a bit cooler and it was a perfect morning for a ride. It started raining later in the day, but hopefully the weekend will be fine.

So it’s now Friday night…and I’m all tied down on the trailer waiting for the trip up the coast in the morning……yes it would have been better to ride up, but due to the lack of rubber on my rear tyre, Anthony decided to get me up there the safe way!   So I’m looking forward to monday and the trip to Grafton for Anthony to go to work.

Saturday…..

We have been here on the Gold Coast since this morning…..I’m all fixed up and have a shiny new rear tyre, and am ready to hit the road…..but unfortunately I’m currently sitting on a trailer in a hotel carpark while Scooterboy and ScooterGirl are enjoying their weekend, but they have worked hard and are thankful for some time away….and after hanging out at the motorcycle expo, Anthony has some photos that he’d like to post….so here they are….

BMW K1300R

Suzuki Gladius SFV650

Fully optioned custom Harley Davison

Big Bear Customs chopper

Ducati Troy Bayliss 1098r Limited Edition

Ducati Streetfighter

the new Ducati Mulistrada 1200

The incredibly expensive Ducati Desmocedici RR

Victory Arlen Ness signature series cruiser.

the awesome Triumph Street Triple R

An accessorised Triumph Street Triple.

the mighty 1700cc Yamaha VMAX

the all-new BMW S1000RR superbike.

The show wasn’t as good as last year….there were some manufacturers not represented, and the crowd didn’t seem to be as big, but Anthony enjoyed hanging out with all the two wheeled toys.

Sunday…..

Its sunday morning and I’m still sitting here in the hotel carpark, but today at some time we are heading home. Scooterboy and Scootergirl have had a great time away, and I’m looking foward to the week ahead….

And now it’s sunday night, and we are home….I’m off the trailer, locked in the garage, and ready to hit the road tomorrow morning…Bring it on!!!

This week’s winner of Derbi’s Celebrity Pillion Passenger of the Week is a musician….but not just any musician, she’s a singer, songwriter, amazing guitarist and was to be the lead guitarist for Michael Jackson’s comeback tour.  She first opened for her hero Steve Vai at the age of 15, she’s 24 now and she is Orianthi Panagaris.

    Not digging the BMWs at all to be honest, Ducatis are much nicer

    I’m not a huge BMW fan either, but it was great to see them up close, particularly the new superbike. I hear so much about it and see it racing on tv, so it was good to see what the fuss was about! I’d have to agree with the Ducati’s being nicer bikes, especially the Desmo RR….looks fast just sitting there!!
