DQ's on his way to this years Australian National Velocette Rally...some pics to tide you over.....

I'm off to this years National Australian Velocette Rally...some 900km from my home, up in northern NSW at Lennox Head....
My good friend Mick Felder from California has flown in, is travelling up with me, and will ride one of my bikes.......
Perhaps a blog report when I return in a week and a bit.....
Meanwhile a sort of pot pouri of pics to tide you over......
Left click on the images to enlarge......
Royston Hill Climb, UK...John Griffith's Brough Superior.
From a French "Moto Revue" road test in 1927.....
I've likely included this before, but though I no longer have the KTT-348 license plate, the Rover 2000 TC or the KTT Mk.8, I still like the photo.....
Ewald Kluge, Baron von Oetzen and Green the Melbourne DKW agent, Northcott Avenue, Canberra before their unsuccessful attempt on raising the australian 250cc land speed record, 1938.
Mk.8 KTT on the Velocette stand at the November 1948 Earles Court Motorcycle Show, London.
Jim Day holds DQ's 1967 VMT Velocette on the start line of the 1971 Castrol 6 hour production machine race, prior to the Le Mans start.
The title for this was....Santa and some lucky Velomans Mk.8 KTT for Christmas....but you don't fool me-sure looks like Gert Boll......
Possibly the South Australian TT races at Lobethal in 1939...L to R...
George Wade,J. Stewart, Frank Mussett and George Hannaford...
You can inspect the Velos and determine their models.....

To my mind the motorcycle events were much more interesting in the old times, because there were not many of them and every even was a great holiday for motorcycle lovers. And now it is really a problem to find time for attending the events you really want to visit.
