    Three Yamaha custom motorcycles from Mad Max: Fury Road will be on display at the Sydney Motorcycle Show, November 20-22 at Sydney Oympic Park.

    Event Organiser Troy Bayliss said the display would be a popular attraction with visitors of all ages to the Sydney Motorcycle Show.

    “Although these bikes returned to Australia following the filming of the movie, it is a rare opportunity for the public to have the chance to view them,” Bayliss said.

    “Anyone who has seen the latest instalment of the Mad Max films is aware of how big a part motorcycles played in the film. To have a selection of the actual bikes used in the movie on display brings a slice of Hollywood to the Sydney Motorcycle Show.

    “It makes it all the more special knowing that Australian riders played a major role in actually doing the stunts, under the direction of Stephen Gall,”

    The awe inspiring Yamaha motorcycles all featured in the movie that was shot on location in Namibia, Africa, with many of the stunts performed by Australia’s top FMX and motocross riders.

    Gall, who was the Motorcycles Specialist Coordinator on the movie will also be a special guest at the Sydney Motorcycle Show and said he was thrilled to able to share his experiences.

    “This is really rare opportunity for Australians to come out see these bikes up close,” Gall said.

    “It is fantastic that the producers of the movie Kennedy Miller Mitchell have granted special permisssion for the bikes to be on display at the Sydney Motorcycle Show.

    “We are going to hold some presentations for visitors to the show to come and discuss the motorcylces and the stunts that were perfomred in the movie,”

    The Sydney Motorcycle Show will pay homage to Australia’s successful motorcycle stunt industry and includes an action packed line up of motorcycle stunt entertainment including KTM street bike stunt rider Lukey Luke, Yamaha stunt rider Dave McKenna, renowned freestyle motocross outfit Showtime FMX, World Freestyle Trials Champion Jack Field and for the younger visitors to the show the ‘Epic’ Darren Children’s Stunt Show.

    In a first for the Sydney Motorcycle Show Darren will attempt to write his way into the Guinness Book of World Records climbing through a tennis racquet while riding a mini-bike on Saturday afternoon.

    Oset Electric Bikes will host the ‘kids come and try zone’ at the Sydney Motorcycle Show giving children of all ages the opportunity to try the popular bikes in a safe, secure location and under the watchful eye of industry experts.
