Despite the COVID border closures, the BSA Owners Club of Queensland still expects more than 60 members to show off their bikes.
There are four BSA branches Australia wide in South Australia, Western Australia, Victoria and Queensland with national rallies held in turn. The last rally was held in SA with about 100 attendees.
The Queensland branch has been going for 17 years.
They are inviting motorcyclists to ride up the scenic Hampton Range on Saturday to see the free display of rare and expensive machinery at the rally headquarters in Crows Nest Tourist Park Qld from 3.30pm to 4.30pm.
The oldest bike is likely from around 1915.
They are also hoping to see a 1953 Super flash BSA on display, likely to be one of the most valuable. The rarest BSA could well be the Speedway BSA.
A big rally dinner is being held on the Saturday night.
Crows Nest was named Queensland’s second Motorcycle Friendly Town in 2017 and has become a motorcyclist Mecca with several motorbike events to be held in the town over the next two weeks and into next year.
The town has since a good social media presence, substantial motorcycle parking in the centre of town and handy brochures, videos and online resources to encourage more riders to the area.
