Congratulations to Steve Trawley from Chandler's Ford who won the weekly 'Bike of the Night' competition on Poole Quay last night.  

Nearly 700 riders came down on a gorgeous summer evening to Poole Dream Machines motorcycle event last night.

Congratulations to Steve who won the weekly 'Bike of the Night' title with his Kawasaki H2.  Steve  said: "Kawasaki's are in my blood.  I owned a Z1 in 1975 then a GT750 and a ZZR1100.  When I saw this one I had to own it!"  He rode home with the special prize of bike cleaning kit courtesy of Muc-Off Ltd.

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.

Judge on the night, Jorge Henley from Quayside Emporium, said: "I chose the bike because it of its power and the mental strength it takes to ride such a beast."

Poole Dream Machines 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.

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.
