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.
