I am just back from a week of riding in the Australian National Veteran Motorcycle rally, held in the Barossa Valley near Adelaide, a noted wine growing area. Lots of photo opportunities, although reduced by the need to actually participate. Entire gallery can be seen here Nuriootpa 2017 - ranmar

Wow, I'm impressed with the number and variety of very old, vintage motorcycles, some makes of which I'm not familiar with. Excellent photography. I checked out both your forum and your link photography. Well done and thank you for posting.

Terrific series and some very cool machinery you don't see every day.

Thank you. While it is a great opportunity to get all these rare machines together, actually photographing them well can be a challenge. Backgrounds are almost always cluttered, and good angles hard to get. Not to mention finding your camera when you stop :-)

We were discussing this at the rally--there seemed to be almost zero local awareness of this event. While the organisers did a great job in general, this was one facet that seemed to be missed. We always drew a crowd whenever we stopped.
I don't think i had ever been through the area before--we came down into the Barossa from Crystal Brook, meaning we went through the Clare Valley. Beautiful part of the world, particularly this time of year. i was so busy riding/maintaining I didn't visit a single winery.

Great job! Amazing bikes too! I am jealous that you got to see them all up close and personal. Hope you had fun.

Hi Ralph
The organisers of all these events do a great job of the event but publisity appears lacking.
I think it's an Australian thing.
You see it on the 6pm news and think I wish I was there.
I get regional tv but not the city and they seem to advertise local events but it not viewed by the city viewer,hence as you found low attendances overall but not locally
