Many people line the route to watch the motorcyclists pass.

“We try to keep the bikes bunched up, rather than letting them spread out over the route, so there is a bit of a spectacle,” Mr Lindemann said.

The riders head out of the city along Hutt Street and Glen Osmond Road, then up the South Eastern Freeway to Callington, where there are food stalls and leather gear sellers among the attractions at the oval.
