The final series of Temporary Australians premieres on Saturday January 27 2018 on 7mate at 10am with a special tribute to the late Greg Hirst.
The TV series was started in 2008 by “Hirsty” who passed away on June 6, 2017, from complications after surgery.
Greg was a moto journo who worked with the homeless, was a founding member of the Christian Motorcyclists Association of Australia, organised the Silverwater Motor Festival and established the Bathurst Bike show.
His series was well regarded by many in the motorcycling community.
Final Temporary Australians series
The final series of Temporary Australians explores the Melbourne Motorcycle Expo, joins the Kobber’s Kruiser Klub on their annual Easter charity ride and visits the Silverwater Street and Custom Motorcycle Show to celebrate 40 years of Brotherhood CMC.
The show will also pay tribute to Hirsty’s contribution to the Australian Motorcycling community and join him on his last ride.
Fellow Temporary Australians host Brendan ‘Jonesy’ Jones says he has never met a “more brave, righteous and persistent person than Hirsty”.
“Whenever I was about to throw in the towel on this show, he’d draw me back in. He was a true believer.”
His widow, Colleen, says Greg made no money from the show.
“It was all funded through sponsors,” she said.
Meanwhile, Temporary Australians series 5, including Hirsty’s last American ride, is available for download on Vimeo on Demand.
Business partner ad Temporary Australians director Tim Robinson describes Hirsty as “a trusted mentor and a great mate”.
