The Superbike Club Brisbane Launch
The Superbike Club has opened its Brisbane Members Shed.
The Superbike Club – Brisbane
June 16, 2009 saw the launch of the Brisbane branch of the Superbike Club. The Superbike Club is a part of the successful Supercar Club, a members only club that provides access to millions of dollars worth of exotic supercars for an annual fee.
Motoaus went along to the launch, which was attended by Top Gear Australia host James Morrison, himself a member of the club. Based near the Brisbane Airport, the Members Shed is in close proximity to the newly established JetClub, in case you need a jet in a hurry.
The club is chaired by mining magnate Nathan Tinkler, who clearly has more expensive tastes than myself, perhaps due to his above award wages. Tim Sommers, founder of the Club, was also on hand to help with the launch, which he says will make the service much more attractive to potential members in Queensland.
“The opening of the Brisbane Members Shed really completes our service on the East Coast of Australia,” Sommers said. “We are now able to make a larger range of motorcycles and cars readily available to members in Queensland.
The facility will also be used to conduct specific functions for members’ throughout the year and is easily accessible for patrons based on the Gold and Sunshine Coasts as well as Brisbane,” he added.
On display at the launch was a Ducati Desmosedici, Bimota DB7, Moto Morini Corsaro Veloce and a Ducati 848, a part of the million dollar range of motorcycles the club owns.
More complete details on the bikes available, fees and how the club operates will be featured in an upcoming story, but expect to pay around a fairly reasonable $7000 a year to get your hands on these exotics.
James Morrison regaled the 150 plus guests with semi-believable tales from his car and motorcycling exploits, and much wine and finger food were consumed.
After the official part of the launch was over, we were taken to look at the aircraft available from the JetClub, and a very impressive set of multi million dollar toys these were too.
The Club also organises a range of events, some of which are available for non members, along the lines of ride days, and track days. One such upcoming event will feature an Eastern Creek track day under the guidance of Troy Bayliss.
Now, if can just raise that extra $6900…
James describes what type of handlebars he would prefer, whilst Bec looks past him and smiles at the girl bringing more wine.
Your garage could look like this too, if you weren’t such a loser.
Here’s two things I would kill you for.
A couple more drinks, and I would’ve given this a go, looks pretty straightforward to me.
This would be awesome at a track day.
