Brisbane custom motorcycle shop Ellaspede has announced it will organise another Backroads or Bust and rider tickets for the sixth Dust Hustle will go on sale soon.
The first Backroads or Bust event was held on Saturday (March 3, 2018), attracting a limited field of 120 riders vying for a $1200 prize pool.
Winner was lucky Luke’s Bartlett of Brisbane who did the ride from Brisbane to Byron Bay via Iron & Resin on the Gold Coast in 4:26.27hrs which was closest to the secret and legal time recorded previously by Ellaspede riders.
The concept was well received by the riders who had a great time keeping to the speed limit and the circuitous backraods route, says Ellaspede spokesman Hughan Seary.
“The response and feedback for this one has been awesome,” he says.
“We’ll definitely be doing another Backroads or Bust later this year. We don’t have a date for the next one yet.”
