Follow us on Facebook for updates and announcements. 

WHO CAN ENTER?

Rockynats is open to riders; Harley-Davidson, Custom, V-twin, Café Racers, Euro, Japanese and Heritage bikes.

Want to be judged in the bike show? Your bike needs to be cool, custom, crazy, or chopped. See the judging information for the type of awards on offer.

Just want to cruise the CBD, race a mate on the Quay Street 1/8 mile, or park up in the bike precinct? That’s cool. Just make sure your bike is well presented and road registered.

WHAT DRIVERS LICENCE DO I NEED TO HOLD TO ENTER?

All entrants must hold a current, unrestricted, unsuspended driver’s licence. We check these too, so be honest.

Learner drivers are not permitted to be entrants.

Entrants under the age of 18 years must have a parent or guardian’s consent to participate.

WHERE IS THE MOTORBIKE PRECINCT?

We’re setting up an exclusive bike precinct on Alma Street between William and Derby streets with traders, live music, biker games, Thunder Run and a judged Bike Show.

This precinct is free to the public and we’ve got space for hundreds of bikes. Let’s create a touch of Sturgis in Rocky.

 

WILL THERE BE A THUNDER RUN?

There will be a Thunder Run – open to all riders - leaving Sunday morning from the Alma Street, Bike Precinct. More details to come.
