Bikers set to raise bar on record

ENGINES will be running hot next month with the Ulysses Club getting revved up to set a new Australian record.

The record for the most motorbikes ridden through a bar in one day was last set in 2006 at Aratula but Warwick man Bill Doran is looking to bring it closer to home.

"The record is 1293 and we are hoping to beat that when we ride through the Royal Hotel at Leyburn," he said.

"I was there for the last one and I'll definitely be there for this one."

Mr Doran said his wife Barb would be by his side, riding her matching Kawasaki 900cc Custom.

He said the Warwick branch of the Ulysses Club had about 80 members, but there were about 28,000 members nationally.

The $15 fee entitles a nominated person to drive through the bar once.

Each person can only ride through the bar once but bikes can go through more than once - and all motorcycles must be registered.

Money raised will go to the Leukaemia Foundation, Careflight and the Ulysses Club Arthritis Research Fund.

There will also be a karaoke on the Friday night and a band playing.
