Ride Forever Motorcycle Show 2017 - Rotary Club honours Burt Munro 50th Anniversary –
The largest motorcycle show in New Zealand.

On the weekend of 16th and 17th September 2017, the Papakura Rotary Club are staging their 5th Motorcycle Show at the ASB Showgrounds. Sponsored again by the Ride Forever section of ACC, this is the largest motorcycle show in New Zealand.

50 years ago, on the 26th August 1967, Burt Munro set the under 1,000cc world motorcycle record at Bonneville. At age 68 and riding a 47-year-old Indian Scout he’d bought new in 1920, he achieved an average speed of 184 mph, setting a record that still stands today.

Made famous in the Roger Donaldson film The World’s Fastest Indian, Burt achievements are now internationally recognised with the annual Burt Munro Challenge becoming the largest motorcycle related event in the Southern Hemisphere.

In honour of the record, Indian are sponsoring Burt’s Great Nephew, Ian Munro, to pay homage to Great Uncle Burt at Bonneville on a specially prepared Indian Scout. Ian is not competing in any races but has Munro racing blood, having won the Vintage class at this year’s Methven Street races on a 1941 Indian.

As a tribute to the 50th anniversary of Burt’s record, Indian New Zealand have commissioned a specially prepared Scout for the show. This will be auctioned on Trademe with all the proceeds going to charity. The bike will be on display and the auction will close live on Sunday afternoon at the show.

With all profits from the show going to charity, the 2016 event raised $140,000. Rotary support training for staff at the National Burn Unit, sponsor the Youth Driver Awareness Project and provide educational scholarships to disadvantaged youth amongst other charities.

The show covers over 10,000 square metres of indoor display space. All the major motorcycle manufacturers will be showing their latest models along with clothing, accessories and biking related displays. Bike parking is free and with 1200 bikes in the car park last year, the outside area is a show all in itself.
