Membership Secretary: No membership report

Richard. Web page. Thinks he has come up with a way to buy and sell. Setting up a Forum on web site, allow for chat and give us ability to put up for sale and wanted items. Will require moderators. Should be straightforward, integral part of the website. Will require a members’ area which club members will need to register for. A member’s area gives an option for other functions down the track.

Ride reports:

  • Michael Callaghan: Rides are going well on Sunday, good turn up. Run to Shoalhaven was very successful. Rod commented on ride home with Harley riders.

Throttle Roll is motorcycle themed street party from the founders of Sydney café races. It will be held in Marrickville on the 2nd of October. Bands, food, beer and bikes.:

The long-awaited return of Throttle Roll will finally arrive on the October Long Weekend, with custom bikes, live bands and booze; bringing together the fun and frivolity of Australian motorcycling culture. This isn’t your typical motorcycle event, though; while some of the country’s wildest motorcycle builds will be on display, Throttle Roll has built a reputation since its first event in 2013 to celebrate the lively culture of this creative community. Think rock and roll, swinging hips and singing lips. It’s a celebration of the creativity and passion behind the niche subculture of custom motorcycles.

On October 2nd, 2023, the streets of Marrickville will roar to life as thousands of motorcycle lovers and pleasure-seekers gather for a day of unparalleled fun and festivities. Expect an epic display of custom-built motorcycles, each a masterpiece of engineering and design. From vintage classics to modern machines, Throttle Roll Street Party is a wet dream for all motorcycle enthusiasts and aesthetes alike.

The unassuming industrial street will come alive with artist and brand displays, showcasing their passions. Supported by some of the most iconic motorcycle and lifestyle brands, including Royal Enfield, MV Agusta, Triumph, Harley Heaven, BMW Motorrad, Gasoline Motor Co, Fantic, Brough Superior, Deus, Shannons, Savic Motorcycles, Super73, SA1NT, SKRAM Eyewear and more. Headline bands include Papa Pilko & The Binrats, XOLO (formally the Frankie’s World Famous House Band), Howlin Alvarez & Drey Rollan, The Stripp, and more! Close out the long weekend surrounded by good vibes and rock and roll, all while reveling in the fun-loving culture of custom motorcycles.

  • Jeff Cohen: Medical syringes available for mechanical purposes, gardening, water pistols, oiling chainsaws. 400 available, free see Jeff.
