A balmy April evening saw approx. 600 bikes come along to enjoy the first night of Poole Dream Machines of 2017.
April Dream Machines events this year is managed by Poole & Bournemouth Tourism, with volunteer marshals supplied by Quay Businesses, Poole Quay Fish & Chip Kiosk, Lord Nelson & Quayside Emporium.
The event sees the largest weekly motorcycle meet in the South, taking place every from 6pm Tuesday evening, April – September. From the latest superbikes and custom builds to vintage classics and trikes, the 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 Malcolm Wilson from Bournemouth who won the ‘Bike of the Night’ title on his Red/Black Harley-Davidson CVO. Malcolm said “my previous Harley was very expensive for extras. A CVO Model has the extras as standard”. Malcolm rode home with a race kit courtesy of Muc-Off, and a goodie bag from Lester Aldridge.
Judge for the night, Paul Nealis of Southern Sound & Leisure, chose the bike “because it was the one I would have liked to take home.”
If you’re an avid biker, don't forget we have a limited stock of season armbands from Poole Tourist Information Centre (now located within Poole Museum) which give access to the whole season for £8. Please note you will not be able to trade in your £1 entry ticket on the event night.
