Big Bike Fest 2007

Posted in Blogroll, Events, Singapore on Tuesday, September 25, 2007 by Colin Quek

Suntec City, sky-scraping offices,, home of big name companies such as IDA (Infocomm Development Authority of Singapore), Microsoft Corporation, Carrefour, etc. The place where the suits are, as you would say it. For 2 days on the 15th and 16th of Sept, the suits made way for the Big Mean Bikes to gather and show off.

Its the first ever Big Bike Festival in Singapore. The biggest names in biking turned up in full force, you name it, we have it. Harleys, Suzukis, Yamahas…

I sort of got the bike bug through it all, having unknowingly chosen the top 3 fastest bikes in the world as my favorites of the show. Info courtesy of my friend, who has a database of bike specs somewhere inside his brain!

A few shots to offer for the wonderful display.

You can’t have bikes without babes…

This is one ultra cool bike, I guess it’s built to do what’s labeled-RIOT!

Of special mention is Mr Ryan Suchanek member of bike stunt group Vertical Mischief. Ryan’s stunts on his bike turn the audience into a noisy pack of participants cheering him on for more. I wish I had spent more time with the man

Need I mention his smile is infectious.

There is even a beer drinking competition to which a crew member of local (YES Singapore) bike group Phantom Knights gulped his way to top spot.

There were countless participants… as is evident of the shot below…

Here’s a toast to Big bike Fest 2007… and forward to Big Bike Fest 2008
