Riders, some on bikes older than they are, leave on Qld tour
SOME of them on bikes older than they are, 15 adventure-seeking Fraser Coast residents have set off on a 1000km five-day ride across Queensland.
Members of the Fraser Coast branch of the Queensland Historic Motorcycle Club left Maryborough on Tuesday riding their beloved bikes, ranging from 1940 to 1980 models.
Organiser Des Janke said a back-up vehicle stocked with food and camping gear would tail the group.
"We average a top speed of about 80kmh to 90kmh," he said.
