Stars of the racing world including GP legend Loris Capirossi turned out at the Ramada Hotel to celebrate the best in Irish road racing and the boys were there to show off their liveried Triumph and publicise their upcoming adventure.
The bike got its fair share of attention, with many of the racers joking about being jealous and wanting to know if they could come along for the ride.
It’s hoped Geoff and Colin will able to meet up with Irish riders Eugene Laverty and Johnathan Rea.
Eugene was named Adelaide Irish Motorcyclist of the Year for the first time at the Adelaide awards.
The top riders will be taking a break in Australia after racing at Phillip Island at the end of February, before they head off for the next round of the World Supersport Championship and may even join the boys for a few miles.
