Big bikes to roar down Esplanade with dazzling light parade

THE sound of dozens of engines will roar down the Esplanade tonight as more than 100 members of the Australian GoldWing Association show off their Honda bikes.

The members are in town for the group's annual general meeting and organiser Kevin Keel said the group was excited for the public to see their bikes.

Mr Keel said the parade along the Esplanade would start about 6pm.

The bikes would be lit up, he said, giving a dazzling light parade.

The group will then meet at Scarness Park where a vote will be taken for the best bike in the parade.

The members will gather again at 10am tomorrow for another procession along the Esplanade.

The group will again gather at Scarness Park after the procession and the public will be invited to vote for their favourite bike.

Mr Keel said a dinner would then be held for the members of the group at the Hervey Bay Boat Club.
