Aussie Triples Rally 2011



The 2nd Annual Aussie Triples Rally was held at Ballina, Northern NSW, on the 19th - 22nd August 2011.

The rally is for early Pommy three cylinder engined motorcycles.

42 bikes arrived, including Triumph Tridents, BSA Rocket 3's, Hurricanes, and some spectacular specials, with a Legend, Rickman a Triton & a Son of Sam T160.

The riders came from great distances, some from as far as Darwin, to attend the event which covered many miles exploring the great rider's roads that this area has to offer.

The main day had a ride out to Nimbin for a break and look around and then on to Bangalow for lunch and the bike judging. Our guest judges this year were Jack Ahearn and John Warrion.

The high standard of these bikes is amazing and that made the judging difficult.

Most of our rides were conducted on wet roads, however we managed to avoid most of the rain showers, except for the Monday ride to the Drake Hotel and back.

All riders acknowledged the assistance provided by the Northern Rivers Classic M/Cyle Club who marshalled the event, the TMRA and Jeff Skillen from Re-Engineered Concentrics for supplying the unique Trophies.

Several riders stayed in the area until the following weekend to attend the South Grafton Ex Servicemans Club Motorcycle Club Rally.
