Behind the entire Five5 operation, is a drive to provide other motorcyclists with a more enjoyable riding experience. We’re not just your ordinary family-owned business; we’ve dedicated our entire lives to the sport. With 3 generations of industry and racing success, amounting to 120 years of combined motorcycling experience, you can guarantee that you’re dealing with a professional, proud and passionate team of experts.
Our experience spans the entire spectrum of motorcycling, from road touring and closed circuit road racing, to dirt bike racing, adventure bike and commuting.
We aim to provide a personal, affordable, and unique experience to every rider. Regardless of age, skill level, bike type or requirements, Five5 has you covered.
We’ve been riding bikes since we could walk, and over the years we’ve learned a thing or two about how a motorcycle service centre and showroom should and should not operate. At Five5, you won’t come across faceless operators, you won’t find unexperienced and uninterested apprentices, you won’t be treated as sales figure, you won’t be talked into services, parts, bikes or equipment you really don’t need.
For us, personalising the riding experience is everything. We really make your bike, feel like your bike. If you’re new to the area, or are just looking for some riding advice or information, we’re always happy to have a chat.
Meet the team
George received his first bike (a Honda tom thumb 50cc) at age 5, and began racing at 8 years old. Fast forward to 2009, George became an accredited rider trainer. In the four years that followed, he developed his skills as a trainer, to not only teach people how to ride on the road, but to help people achieve their goals on the track as a mentor and a coach.
Within his role as an advanced motorcycle trainer, George has had the opportunity to coach, mentor, and work alongside some of the most talented riders in Australia and New Zealand, the likes of Gentleman John Woodly , Shaun Giles , Alex Cudlin , Gareth Jones and many more.
In 2012, Toprider Australia sponsored George with a 600cc motorcycle to road race in the southern downs road race series. In his first year of road racing, George managed an impressive 7th place from a field of 45 riders boasting some of Australia’s finest young talent. In 2015, George returned to racing, this time competing in the one-litre class and spending most of the season in 4th place and securing a few podium wins.
Following years of extensive rider training, George decided to take a step back to spend more time focusing on the workshop and mechanical side of motorcycling. This led him to complete his motorcycle mechanic apprenticeship where he was awarded motorcycle apprentice of the year.
Timmy started riding and racing at a very young age. At only four years of age he was up and riding on his first motorcycle (a Honda QR50). His love for racing started on the dirt before he made the transition to road at the age of 12.
On a Yamaha YSR80 he first started honing his road craft, spending more time on the track and race circuit. Following some success on the track and a few unfortunate crashes, Timmy decided to hang up the boots for a while to pursue his passion in motorcycle mechanics, commencing his apprenticeship.
He returned to the track racing a Morriwaki MD250h Moto3 finishing the year in overall 9th position after an unfortunate crash.
Over the past 20 years, Timmy has raced with some of the country’s best riders, under the guidance of some of the most experienced coaches in Australia. Timmy’s experience on the track and racing circuit, paired with an exceptional knowledge in motorcycle mechanics led him to work as head mechanic and suspension guru for teams in the ASBK.
He has quickly gained a reputation for his ability to increase bike performance and get riders to the top of the podium, often with nothing more than his experience, knowledge and a couple of spanners.
