The annual get together of Australia’s largest social motorcycle group is expected to attract more than 5000 riders to the Maryborough Showgrounds from April 15 to 21.
“It is a privilege to once again join forces with this unique event,” said Suzuki Australia Motorcycles General Manager Perry Morison.
“It is one of the real highlights on the calendar of events and a great opportunity for customers to test ride a number of Suzuki motorcycles in a relaxed environment,” he said.
The Ulysses Club began in 1983 as a social motorcycle club for riders aged over 40 and is famous for its motto – “Grow old disgracefully”.
“With nearly 140 branches around the country and sister clubs around the globe, the Ulysses Club is one Suzuki is proud to be associated with.
“With the fantastic support from one of our top dealerships – Sunstate Motorcycles in nearby Hervey Bay – we will be supplying an array of two-wheeled delights for all Ulysses members to sample.”
The test rides provide icing on the cake for the event, with Ulysses members provided with the chance to sample from no less than 15 models from the Suzuki road bike range.
Among the line-up will be the all-new C90T Boulevard, which is fast establishing cult status with the cruiser fraternity. It will be joined by a host of Boulevard models, the Suzuki adventure touring range, the all-new Burgman 650, Gladius, Bandit 1250 and Inazuma 250.
Ulysses Club spokesman Warren Jamieson said the return of Suzuki brand was warmly welcomed by his association.
“The Ulysses Club 2013 AGM Event Committee is pleased that Suzuki Australia will be attending the AGM Event with a fleet of test bikes. With more motorcycle manufacturers attending the Event than the Ulysses Club has seen for some time, it is shaping up to be a bumper gathering.
“Thousands of enthusiastic Ulysses members will be in attendance and the event offers an exceptional marketing opportunity for Suzuki to demonstrate the quality and value of their products to these potential buyers.”
