The West Australian regional city of Albany has dished up a smorgasbord of beautiful motorbikes, with a host of new machines and more than a few well-known classics on show at the 2021 Albany Vintage and Classic Motorcycle Weekend.
A big turnout of bikes and spectators, coupled with sporadic sunshine and no rain (!), made this year’s event a corker.
A gloss black Egli-Vincent was the head-turner of the show-and-shine event on Saturday morning, pulling a steady stream of people for the obligatory phone pics. The low-stress format of the event – just roll up and find somewhere to park on the city’s historic Stirling Terrace – ensured a wonderfully broad range of machinery.
Many bikes came from sheds in and around the south coastal city, but there was also a strong contingent making the trip down from Perth, 400-odd kilometres to the north.
Sunday provided the opportunity for 100 bikes to have a jolly good fang-up-a-hill in the annual hill climb event at Mount Clarence, overlooking the picturesque King George Sound.
But Saturday was our favourite, with a whole bunch of grey-bearded bike nuts showing off their best and ogling everyone else’s.
You can buy a 2022 calendar of photos from the weekend (check it out here) but, in the meantime, here are some of our best shots.
