14-16 Au­gust, 2015 – Sil­ver Sands, 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. Sun­day’s 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 more than enough en­cour­age­ment to start plan­ning for Aussie Triples Rally No 7 in Au­gust. 2016.
