Vintage bikes, young at heart riders

I’ve been spoiled so far this year. So many great things happening in and around my patch of dirt.

This weekend my regional city has been the place to be if you own an Ariel motor bike as the members of Australian Ariel Register gathered here for their AGM and rally.

Ariel bikes were made between 1902 and 1956 so it isn’t surprising the numbers attending are far less than those of the recent HOG AGM and rally but those here have no less love for their machines. Last week it was estimated around 97 bikes would be in town which I don’t think is a bad turnout for Australian enthusiasts of a bike that hasn’t been made for 59 years.

There were many sparkles in eyes and on chrome exhausts as the group headed out on today’s ride.


All the fun of the show.

March is the month of agricultural shows around my region. As much as I would like to attend each and every one within a 100klm radius, practicality and finances say no.

However either wont stop me from the local one, especially as the show grounds are within walking distance of my house.

Here are a few of the shots I took during the Saturday evening session. Hope you like them.

The Hogs are in town

There is a Harley Davidson rally going on this weekend and the city was treated to over 2,000 enthusiasts riding through it.

I got up early because I didn’t want to miss the Hog Run. As it turned out it took around 45 minutes for all of the riders to pass on their way to their destination.

They were loud in the wonderful way only Harley Davidson’s can be.
