Helmets and Balaclavas Motorcycle Show


To raise awareness of the safety and security of motorcyclists, the Helmets and Balaclavas motorcycle exhibit will be held at the Willowbank Raceway on Thursday, November 18 from 4 p.m.

The event is hosted by the Ipswich Road Safety Committee, QPS Ipswich District Crime Prevention, Department for Transport and Main Roads, Ipswich City Council and the PCYC.

Bikers are arguably our most vulnerable road users.

While the drivers of their cars are protected by a force field of metal, seat belts and airbags, the design of the motorcycles leaves the drivers exposed, with only the leathers on their backs to protect them.

This means that they are more likely to be killed or injured.

Research validates this point, with motorcyclists being around 30 times more likely to be killed in traffic accidents than car occupants.

Tragically, this year we have already seen 58 motorcycle fatalities on Queensland roads.

The helmet and balaclava motorcycle exhibit will be for all motorcycle enthusiasts, including an appearance by MX Pro Todd Waters.

The event will feature motorcycle demonstrations from Mount Cotton Revolution Rider Training, QPS Traffic Police presentations, Ipswich District Crime Prevention Unit standard drinks presentation, Spinal Injury presentations vertebral and brain, as well as a sizzle of sausage by Ulysses.

Visit the QPS booth for more information or to have your photo taken with Todd Waters, police and police vehicles and the motorcycle.

This free event is an opportunity to network and share information, while raising awareness of motorcycle safety and security.

Upon entry, visitors will receive a raffle ticket with a chance to win one of three prizes, drawn on the day.
