Singapore Bike Fest on 2-3 Aug 2008

Last weekend, bikers all over the island gathered at Kallang Leisure Park, for the S'pore Bike Fest 2008. Convoys roared into the parking area, one on each day, attracting cheers from the crowd. Bike stunts were also the draw for most.

Organisers Team 27, very kindly allowed us to publicise our Enduro Africa project at their booth. With poster & laptop in tow, we got a video running and had leaflets to distribute.

Much credit goes to the earlier article in Motorculture magazine, as some of the bikers read about our trip & were asking us more questions... Glad to say, we managed to sell a couple of Sins vouchers and about 20 bars of chocolates to supportive friends. Others simply donated cash to support our cause.

Behind our booth was the private collection of a guy who has great tastes in restoring classic Japanese motorbikes. Looking at those classics inspired us to get our own classic bike someday.

On the 2nd day, we parked our Transalps at the bike park & set up a mini display with a poster between the 2 bikes. Must have attracted some curious stares outside too!

Live band played into the night & Singha beer was the drink of the event. The open air pub atmosphere ended each night.

With Peter & Jack from Team 27...
