Australian Indian Motorcycle owners will next year attempt to set a world parade record for the most Indian motorbikes.
Registrations recently opened for the event on 9 May 2020 and already there are 150 riders who have signed up, says event organiser Christine Keeble.
Christine says there will be “a special offer for extra goodies for the first 300 to register”.
“Currently the record is set at 274,” she says.
“We are eagerly watching the US as they have another attempt October 2019, so we may have a new number to chase.”
The “Most Indian Motorcycles on Parade” event will be held at Silverton in NSW where the original Mad Max movie was filmed.
“While this is such a big country, the location was chosen because of its iconic outback backdrop and a major town and infrastructure only a short 15 minutes away in Broken Hill,” Christine says.
“This will be a great opportunity to meet up with Indian riders from all parts of Australia.”
Christine says she started planning the event 12 months ago and it is “gaining interest every day”.
“This is not a bike festival as such, but a focused gathering on Indian motorbike enthusiasts who will have a go at breaking a world record.
“And if that is not achieved it will definitely be the first in the Southern Hemisphere. So records will be set.”
The event will also help raise awareness for the Gift of Life organ donation service.
