Local bike show revs into gear

up to speed on the beauty and variety of Grand Cayman’s motorbikesby
heading over to North Side for the Island Riding 2010
Bike Show at Driftwood on Saturday, 24 April, 1pm-6pm.

The inaugural event, being held by
Driftwood Bar & Grill in association with the Cayman Islands Motorcycle
Riders Association, promises all day Happy Hour drinks specials and music from
a local DJ from 7pm to midnight.

Members of the public will be
handed ballots and will get to choose which of the numbered bikes on display should
win. Attendees will also have the chance to cast their votes for the overall
Best in Show. 

According to Keith Keller of the
Motorcycle Riders Association, bikes entered will fall into the following
categories: Harley Davidsons; cruisers (Kawasakis, Hondas and Yamahas); sport
bikes (Hondas, Suzukis and Kawasakis).

“There will be trophies awarded for
best stock and best modified in each catagory, as well as a trophy for best of
show in both stock and modified groups,” said Phil Eckstein, another of
the association’s organisers.

The bike show is being held as a
fundraiser for Cayman Animal Rescue Enthusiasts. The registered charity
operates a community spay and neuter programme and a trap, neuter and release
feral cat initiative.

The registration fee for those
wanting to enter their bikes for the show is $10.

“We are planning for it to be a
great day out for bike lovers. With enough entrants, we are hoping to make a sizeable
donation to C.A.R.E,” said Mr. Keller.

The charity’s aim is to prevent
ill-treatment, cruelty and suffering to all domestic animals and to eliminate
over-population in their numbers.
