A BIG crowd, some truly magnificent machinery and mostly-compliant weather kept organisers and the crowd entertained and satisfied at this year’s York Motorcycle Festival in Western Australia’s wheatbelt.
Hundreds of bikes lined the streets of WA’s oldest inland town for most of Saturday and Sunday, providing a smorgasbord of two-wheeled eye candy — and that was before patrons wandered into the main eye-candy event, the Show & Shine in York’s 108-year-old town hall. (We’ve published the full list of trophy winners down the bottom of this article.)
Intermittent dark clouds and an occasional patch of drizzle ensured many punters kept an eye on the sky. The proper rain held off until the event wound up, but many riders ended the day with a wet butt on the hour-long ride back to Perth.
We wandered the streets to soak up the vibe, enjoying the work of stunt maestro Lukey Luke and some impressive trials and super moto riders, but we kept going back to the town hall to ogle the bikes on show.
As always, we gave the Nikon a workout. Here are our favourite pics.
