Support Vehicles

Support vehicles
Support vehicles supplied by Hyundai and fueled by QBE Motorcycle Insurance

With huge thanks to Hyundai for supplying two support vans and QBE Motorcycle Insurance for the fuel here is a first look at part of the support we will have on this trip that starts for me in (checks watch) less than 22 hours. Gotta say they look really sharp and will make a great conversation point at each stop – oh along with the 52 motorcycles of course.

It’s a great comfort to know that we do have the support on this ride and it is also very important to note that all the people driving in these vehicles are also volunteers.  That’s right, they are paying their own way round on this trip too just like the motorcyclists. 

Another good thing is each support vehicle – of which there are a total of four – will have a licensed rider on board.  So in the event someone desperately needs a break their bike will be taken care of and they can jump into a comfortable seat, with air conditioned climate control, on soft suspension, no longer buffeted by the wind or pulling bugs out of their teeth, and listen to some sweet sweet tunes on the radio.  Wait…

Hi, my name is Glenn Martin and in October 2010 I’ll be taking part in the Steven Walter Foundation “Ride Around Australia”. All participants are being asked to raise at least $2,500 to donate to the Steven Walter Foundation that goes to research into childhood cancer. I’m currently in my 30s, an IT professional living in Canberra Australia for the past 15 years or so. I’ve ridden motorbikes for 20 years and for the last 10 years my ride has been a ‘99 Yamaha Road Star, a big Japanese 1600cc V-Twin cruiser.

  1. Sweetness!
    Although why would you want airconditioned comfort when you get bug protien intra-dentally fed to you all day long for free!

    Kudos to the volunteers and Hyundai
