The 6th Annual Aussie Triples Rally
was held on 14 - 16 August 2015
6th Aussie Triples Rally, Evans Head NSW
This Rally is for British Triples:- Tridents, BSA Rocket 3's and Specials using the three cylinder 750 motor built from 1968 - 1975.
51 entrants arrived at Evans Head for 3 days of riding. We had entrants from Perth, Adelaide, Geelong, Central QLD and many places in between bringing their pride and joy. Some were trailered but many were ridden to the event.
Also in the field of bikes were 3 Hurricanes and a Legend, one of 62 built in 1976 and a very rare bike in this part of the world.
The weather at Evans Head was perfect on Friday and Saturday, our main ride day. We arrived at Casino where the Public School P&C supplied a great lunch. The bikes were lined up for judging here. Once again excellent marshalling was provided by members of the Northern Rivers Classic Motorcycle Club.
The presentation Dinner at Evans Head Bowling Club was a great night with the unique trophies, supplied by Jeff at Re-engineered Concentrics being awarded. Following this was our Charity Auction with our exclusive Auctioneer Scotty from Singleton selling off merchandise donated by the Trident & Rocket 3 Owners Club based in England and Bottles of Hunter Port donated by Jeff and the latest Trispark unit donated by Steve Kelly.
Sundays ride was on damp roads following some overnight showers but not enough to cause concern. This ride was followed by a BBQ lunch to farewell the entrants and to thank the Marshals.
The support from the local businesses and the scenic rides found in this area are enough encouragement to start planning for Aussie Triples Rally No 7. August. 2016.
