The Clarence Valley Historic & Enthusiasts Motorcycle Club Rally 2013

Now say that   title   half pissed ! :)

Col asked me to go down there to get a few photos and I'm glad I did .  Not only did I bump into some famous ( or infamous people ) I haven't seen in almost 35 years  it was a great day . The weather was excellent , a great range of bikes and owners  and a great route giving me options for  another attempt at "panning" . It wont beat me .    See you again next year , and thank you to the 20 or 30 people that  came up and said hello with a smile , a very pleasant change .
About 40 or so photos on Photobucket here   Grafton 2013 Rally Photos  , feel free to copy what you want  and remember to enlarge to " view original " first    . . They are in time line order and haven't been edited as such  , just cropped  so you may have to "play" to suite  your monitors .

Aussie Triples Motorbike Rally 2013 BALLINA NSW

I went out yesterday to look at the Aussie British Triples Rally  and experimented with new camera settings for panning ( My Achilles heal )  Bad move Holty... I will sneak back today and try again.
 Maybe I'm trying for the impossible but no pain , no gain .:)

As usual there are some truly beautiful bikes and the even more usual stories of how and why .  If you weren't part of bikes in the 60 and early 70s  you may not understand but this is the era that the British motorcycle industry  became almost extinct ..   The red Legend  gets my "peoples choice"  and I will always have a soft spot for a Hurricane , almost  Holty . I got a BMW instead . :)

Bentley Hall
I like it :)
Almost Holty , almost !

There is a Hi Res photo of the Legend here  .  Use  the link and then just click on the photo and continue clicking on  the little  magnifier bottom right until it says "view original "   Note . About 6 meg for you slow internet access people . (Like me  !  Dodo :) )
Very clean and VERY unique
