Trader Bookings Approach One Hundred
Nearly 100 traders have booked and paid in full for well over 100 sites already (mid-October 2012). According to the Traders Coordinator, Garry Healing "Trader site bookings for the event have already reached approximately 80% capacity. That means that almost 100 traders have booked and paid in full!" Just a glance at the Indoor Traders Layout or the Traders Site Map will give members some idea of how many sites are booked so far.
Many of the motorcycle manufacturers have come on board early and confirmed they will be offering test rides at the event. These include Honda, BMW, Tour-Oz (Trikes), BRP Can-Am, Victory, Yamaha and new manufacturer, CF-Moto. It's rumoured that one manufacturer may even unveil a new Australian model at the event. The demo area will host special presentations by BMW Motorrad & H.A.R.T. (Honda Australia Rider Training) so that will be an extra bonus for members attending the event.
Demo Area & Piazza
PS Importers (Triumph/Hyosung/Piaggio) have confirmed they'll definitely be there, and negotiations with Suzuki, Kawasaki, Ducati & Moto Guzzi/Aprilia are pending decisions from their senior management. With so many manufacturers already confirmed, it's certainly shaping up to be an exceptional opportunity for members to test and compare the latest & greatest bikes on the market.
