The Jerry Can Ride by Sailor Jerry was touted as a ride for custom bikes, original rides and independent spirits through 2500 kms of avoiding the latest trends and finding the hidden gems. And boy, it sure lived up to the mantra!

Starting in Victoria, the travelling circus of bikes and bands made it's way across 4 states and finished up at Ellaspede in Brisbane.

Leo and Hughan from Ellaspede were on board for the full ride, switching between the Ellaspede built EB043 Triumph Bonneville and EB141 Yamaha XT660R all the way up the east coast.

Like the Sailor Jerry Rum, this ride was straight up! 10 days of gigs, good times and going fast was captured on video, so hit the links below and relive all the action.

"I'd rather have character than be one" Norman 'Sailor Jerry' Collins, 1911-1973

Special thanks to Sailor Jerry Australia.

Stoked that you caught the Jerry Can videos mate, that trip was a blast! We'd love to do this every year but this was a special event that Sailor Jerry put on. If you're on our social media and we do plan something like this again (when we can) then you'll definitely see it on there and have to get involved! Cheers legend
