Our "superbike" sponsor The Sound of Auckland 93.8FM commented that "Auckland’s 93.8 The Sound were thrilled to offer promotional support for the second annual Bikes BBQ & the Blues - 2011. The concept of this event is brilliant – appealing to a wide range of people ….”
A HUGE thanks to all those that made 2012 our most successful event to date. Thats the bikers, the retailers, distributors, collectors, exhibitors, sponsors, the bands, food vendors, the Prostate Cancer Foundaion of NZ, DOC, the general public, the many Devonport Rotary Club volunteers and finally the weather gods. Everyone contributed to make it a great day. It was a pleasure to work with Springs Promotions to combine with them to support the FIM Solo Speedway bikes GP and to have Bill Buckley's 1980's 500cc GP bikes on display along with the most awsome display of valuable and famous bikes from several motorcycling milestone periods in history.
The first three years of this event has had tremendous feedback and support for 2013 is strong. So for 2013 remain staunch and faithfull and make Bikes BBQ & the Blues your priority on Sunday 3rd March.
