motorcycles, travel, friendship, respect… I may drift off into WTF-land at times so hang in there.

2014 Laverda Concours

G’day

The annual Laverda Concours has come and gone for another year.

Who would have thought that from the first concours held at Captain Burke Park, Kangaroo Point (under The Story Bridge), the Laverda Concours would become so popular that it would have to move to a bigger venue at the Cleveland Showgrounds.

This year there were 60 trophies, and over $4000 in cash and prizes up for grabs. Everything was covered; Continental, British, American, Japanese, Classic, Street Special, Outfits, Cafe Racer… this list goes on.

There were even trophies for most powerful bike in the car… err… bike park. Mick the proprietor of Mick’s Bike & Car Tyres provided his dyno for this popular event

Over the past 10 years Club Laverda has raised over $55,000 for Make-A-Wish.

What is Make-A Wish?

Make-A Wish grants wishes to children with life threatening medical conditions. The wishes can be as simple as kicking a ball around with their favorite footy team to becoming a diamond miner.

Since 1985 there have been over 8,000 wishes granted to children in Australia.

A big thumbs up to Club Laverda for putting on a great show and for raising money for some very deserving kids
