A warm Summer evening on Poole Quay saw the largest gathering of motorcycles this year enjoying the Poole Dream Machines motorcycle event with more than 900 on show.
The popular weekly event, sponsored by Dutton Gregory Solicitors, is organised and managed by the Poole & Bournemouth Tourism office and part of Poole’s Wave 105 Summertime in the South events programme.
The event sees the largest weekly motorcycle meet in the South taking place every Tuesday evening from 6pm, April – September. From the latest superbikes and custom builds to vintage classics and trikes, Poole Quay and Harbour offer the perfect location to show off a superb range of motorbikes where bikers and spectators enjoy a unique relaxed atmosphere. And with a great selection of waterside cafes, bars, restaurants and food kiosks to enjoy during the event, it is the perfect place to relax and have a bite to eat.
Congratulations to Paul Emmonds from Christchurch who won the weekly ‘Bike of the Night’ title with his Harley Davidson Sportster. The bike took Paul a year to restore. He rode home with the special prize of bike cleaning kit courtesy of Muc-Off Ltd.
Judge for the evening was Jon Brooks from Wave 105, “I chose this bike because of the beautiful paintwork and chrome done in a fantastic 1970’s style.”
For avid bikers, a limited stock of season armbands from the Poole Tourist Information Centre within Poole Museum, or available from Quayside Emporium, the Lord Nelson or the Fish and Chip kiosk. Armbands give access to the whole season for just £8. Alternatively, riders can pay £1 per bike on the evening.
