New facebook Page


I guess that social media and content will be the way that most people will keep up to date on the daily activities of the cannonball ride.

Our intention is to update this page on a regular basis on the day to day activities.
My support rider and Mechanic "Ian Lihou" has found that he prefers Facebook and has set up a social page.

Please take the time to like or view page as he will be updating this also on a regular basis.

Ian has many interested people and will find a slightly different audience than we have on our blog.

The page can be found by Typing in the following name.
Southern Cross Cannonball Coast to Coast 2012!/SouthernCrossCannonballCoastToCoast2012

Hope some find this interesting.

Festival Time


For all those interested we are presenting a film and talk about the 2010 Cannonball run at the Newport Folk Festival on Sunday 8th July.

We are planning to launch our bike at festival, and have a noted motorcycle identity who will present and open our campaign.

If you are local and wish to see what this about please come and enjoy the week end at the festival.

The film presentation will be the Australian Premier Screening and we still await the film with anticipation.

This event is wrist band entry as per all the events at the festival, and all entry costs are put back into the community.

There will be motorcycle parking outside the venue which is the Community Centre in Mason st in Newport.

I would suggest getting there early as this venue holds approx 50 ppl, and will be first in, best dressed.

The Invincible will be on display and hopefully completed for this event.

This is a great atmosphere, with many completing venues and intersting things to see and do.
Well worth bringing your family and making a day of this.

Hope to see some of you if you can make this.

This is the Flier below.

White Knuckle (Film/talk)

Chris  Knoop, NFFC member and  lifelong avid motorcyclist will present the Australian premiere of the film White Knuckle by Brian Dawars.  This film is the story of the 2010 Motorcycle Cannonball ride across USA on Vintage pre-1915 machines, personalities and events that unfold.
Chris was involved with the 2010 ride as support crew and actively worked and helped with the repairs, trials and tribulations.  He had such a fantastic time on the ride that he had to return.  For 2012 Motorcycle Cannonball ride, Chris has entered a vintage Australian Motorcycle  which he has virtually rebuilt from scratch.  The bike is a 1925 Invincible Jap made in Swanston Street, Melbourne, and has a a period wicker sidecar also made in Melbourne. Chris’s wife Christine will be along for the ride in the sidecar. 
The motorcycle will be on display for the festival.
