WA 1 DAYER 2017 LEGS

Black Dog Ride's iconic annual 1 Dayer aims to start a national conversation about depression and suicide prevention.

Help us get the country talking and join a Black Dog Ride 1 Dayer in WA!


1 Dayer 2017 Background

Since 2010, Black Dog Ride's 1 Dayer has brought together Black Dog Riders for an enjoyable and meaningful day of riding, uniting like minded people for a vital mission - raising awareness of depression and suicide prevention. 8 people a day take their lives, and Black Dog Riders uniting together under one banner with one voice aims to amplify a national message of mental health awareness to prevent this tragic loss of life to suicide. We need to talk! Let's get the conversation started, register for Black Dog Ride's 1 Dayer 2017 today!

Online Registration Incentive

The awesome Indian Motorcycle are right behind Black Dog Ride! To encourage Black Dog Riders to register online, Indian Motorcycle have generously donated an Indian Scout valued at $19,995 which will be drawn on 19th March 2017!

Black Dog Ride 1 Dayer 2017 - Indian Scout - Raffle Prize

It's not to late to rewrite your script. Change the plot. Add more action. And there's no better bike to get than the Indian Scout. With a modern, lightweight chasis. A lower centre of gravity. And a liquid-cooled V-Twin that opens up and never stops. Take control of your story. Start your legend.

All riders registered online before midnight AEDT 6th March automatically go in the draw to win this fantastic prize! Thank you Indian Motorcycle!


1 Dayer T-Shirts

Riders now have the opportunity to purchase a Black Dog Ride 1 Dayer 2017 t-shirt. The t-shirt is available in both men's and ladies sizes for just $30 which includes shipping!

Please note -- the first pre-order has been sent to the supplier. Those will be dispatched prior to the 1 Dayer. A second pre-order is STILL OPEN! As the second pre-order won't be dispatched to the supplier before the 1 Dayer, buyers won't receive them until AFTER the 1 Dayer. However you'll still be the proud wearer of the first BDR 1 Dayer T-Shirt!

Grab this opportunity while you can and purchase them in the BDR Shop here.
