Arlen Ness Photographic Exhibition

Victory Motorcycles presents the Arlen Ness Photographic Exhibition at Sebel Heritage Hotel Yarra Valley, 5TH – 13TH September 2009.

Arlen Ness is without a doubt the world’s foremost motorcycle customizer. Starting out of his garage in the 1960’s armed with no more than a spray gun and a dream, he created his first chopper. That chopper launched a customizing career that in turn helped launch an entire industry. Today Arlen and his family run their multi million dollar international motorcycle parts and customizing business in Dublin, California.

Triumph 100 Years Limited Edition Fine Art Print



Buy a 'Triumph 100 Years' or 'Decade of Domination' (Ducati) limited edition fine art print by Billy (David Bill) for £45 (approx $90) with free world wide shipping and you are automatically entered into a draw to win the original oil on canvas painting (of your print) worth £10,000 (approx $20,000) by your print edition number.

Both paintings by artist Billy (David Bill) took him about three months to paint (Billy averages 1 inch an hour on the detail parts!) and are celebrations of the two motorcycle marques. 'Triumph 100 Years' shows the men and machines who make the amazing Triumph bikes. Billy the artist is on the painting too riding the Speed Triple in the centre flanked by the Bonneville T100 and Centenary Daytona. The other bikes from 2002 are in monochrome Red and the men who make the bikes are in blue all based on the Union Flag.

'Decade of Domination' is a celebration of Ducati's rise to world prominance in World Superbikes in the 1990's. It shows, based on the Italian flag, all the world champions from that decade that took Ducati from a small struggling factory to a dominant force in WSBKs and motorcycling. Raymond Roche, Doug Polen and Troy Corser are in monochrome colour with Carl Fogarty's 4 World Superbike Championship victories in full colour.

You can view the incredible detail that Billy puts in his work on his website www.billyart.co.uk and there is a link from the front page to both the Triumph and Ducati paintings. There is also a 96 second youtube video in which Billy explains this amazing offer to win one of these stunning paintings. Each edition is of 1000, 51x71cm, signed and numbered with free worldwide shipping for £45 (approx $90) each print. When the edition sells out a number will be drawn and that print number owner owner will get the original oil on canvas painting of their print worth £10,000 (approx $20,000).

Not long after Billy completed the paintings his family suffered a lot of illness which had him shelve the prints for a few years while caring for them. Billy has other work in the collections of Aston Martin Cars, Rivera Amplifiers and the BBC among others.

Bike fans raise over $30,000 for bushfire appeal

Bike fans at the weekend’s World Superbike Championship at Phillip Island gave generously to the Red Cross Busfire Appeal, with over $30 000 being raised to assist the Victorian communities that have been devastated by the recent fires.

Over 40 volunteers collected from race fans during the day, with spectators giving deep to donate over $9800.

But the real fundraising action started after the chequered flag dropped, and an auction of autographed memorabilia from the riders and teams raised over $20 840.

Held on the victory podium straight after the champagne flowed from race 2 winner Ben Spies, the fundraising hit top gear when Inverloch stock auctioneer Simon Henderson took to the microphone.
Teams and riders gave generously, with the top bids coming from a set of Anthony West leathers that went for $1500 and a Troy Bayliss signed Ducati team shirt for $1400.

Gold Coast - Australian Motorcycle Expo 2009

The Australian Motorcycle Expo Gold Coast kicks off this Friday.

Formerly known as the Australian Motorcycle Expo Brisbane (past two years held in the Brisbane Convention Centre), the Australian Motorcycle Expo will bring the largest motorcycle exhibition ever seen in Queensland including the latest in motorcycles, scooters, ATVs, apparel, accessories and motorcycle-related services.

Some of the highlights include -

BMW HP2 Sport - The fastest, sportiest and lightest Boxer-engined sports bike yet, ready for the road or track. Aimed at purist sports riders, this model features parts making their first appearance in a BMW production machine, including race shift, forged alloy wheels and MotoGP-inspired dashboard.

Harley-Davidson XR1200 - The Motor Company's proud history of evolution continues with the XR 750 inspired XR 1200. The bike features XR 750 inspired styling and livery, a 1200cc high performance powertrain, specifically developed Dunlop Qualifier tyres and unique lightweight cast wheels with dirt track inspired design.

KTM 990 Supermoto R - This machine combines irrepressible power and effortless handling. The KTM engineers did their utmost to develop a "machine" that would exploit to the fullest every last inch of leeway in road traffic certification: Fully adjustable 48 WP chassis, ultra light chromium molybdenum tubular trellis frame, enhanced seat ergonomics for perfect drifts as well as "R"adial brake performance from Brembo all ensure pure pleasure in the curves.

Kawasaki ZX-6R - The new ZX-6R features a wealth of upgrades including improvements to the engine, chassis, suspension, exhaust, instrumentation, brakes - in fact virtually every aspect of the new Ninja ZX-6R is new and improved for 2009. For those really wanting to stand out from the crowd, the new model is also available in Monster Energy styling, and will be on display at the Gold Coast.

MV Agusta Brutale 989R - This exciting model has an increased capacity and accordingly upgraded specifications in the braking and suspension areas that will see it represent excellent value for the discerning buyer and compliment the 2009 Brutale 1078 RR, which will see only its second show outing at the Gold Coast event. Showgoers should also keep an eye out for the exotic F4CC, 1 of only 100 ever made, with a pricetag to match at $185,000.

Triumph Thunderbird - Designed to take on the best in the cruiser category, combining sleek and modern custom styling with strong performance and great dynamics, the Thunderbird delivers an authentic cruiser experience in a uniquely Triumph package. The bike features an all-new 1599cc parallel twin-cylinder motor with six-speed gearbox and belt drive. The engine, with a bore and stroke of 103.8 x 94.3mm, will develop in excess of 75bhp in standard trim and produces more than 100 lb/ft of torque.

Suzuki GSXR-1000 - A lighter, more-powerful and more-responsive new 999cc engine is packed with race-bred technology and boasts a class-leading power-to-weight ratio, taking the legend of Suzuki's flagship GSX-R to the next level. With a range of other major developments including an all-new chassis, a revolutionary new front suspension system, enhanced brakes and sleek, wind tunnel-refined bodywork, the all-new Suzuki GSX-R1000 is ready to own the racetrack.

Yamaha YZF-R1 - Rather than look exclusively to additional electronic aids to further enhance the new YZF-R1's performance and controllability, Yamaha's engineers opted for a mechanical solution. The defining and most influential feature of the new motorcycle is the use of an innovative new 998cc engine which has been developed from the YZR-M1 MotoGP design, which Valentino Rossi piloted to victory last year. The most significant piece of technology to be seen on the compact, new, high-performance engine is its race-developed crossplane crankshaft, which delivers outstandingly pure torque characteristics and high levels of traction.

Doors to the event open at 10am each day, with extended hours (until 9pm) on Friday and Saturday.

Tickets start at $13, with the family pass, $44 for two adults and two children, offering best value.
