Tons of motorcyclists gathered on Inverell on Friday to celebrate Vince Strang Motorcycles’ 40 years in business/
To celebrate the milestone, VSM has organized a sausage sizzle! Not to mention, they will be celebrating the 21st anniversary of Suzuki’s DR650se model being sold in Australia.
“Our early involvement with the DR650se in the Australian Safari in 1996 and ’97 primed VSM as the ‘go to’ store for DR650’s and up-grade parts to customise them”, said Vince.
“We now sell them all over Australia set up in many different configurations, such as full touring adventure bikes to station bikes for outback properties.”
The Vince Strang Motorcycles celebrations are also combining with the Adventure Riders Magazine Northern Congregation being held at Green Valley Farm this weekend.
“I had been in New Zealand for a couple of months racing and repairing off road bikes and when I returned I felt I needed a change,” Vince said.
“The opportunity arose to start my own business with the late Mac McCulloch so we purchased the existing small motorcycle side of Jack Griffin Bicycles.”
“The business grew very quickly and soon moved to a new building in Byron Street and then after only two years moved to our present position at the intersection of Byron and Swanbrook Road.”
A great number of motorcyclists have made plans to attend the event. Suzuki DR riders will receive random draw prizes by Suzuki, Pirelli tyres, Motul oils, Motorbikin Adventure DVD company and VSM.
