Vincent HRD Australian National Rally 2014

A selection of footage videoed at the Australian National Rally for the Vincent HRD Clubs of Australia, held in Marysville, Victoria in March 2014. Footage was taken from my hand held high definition Sony as although we had cameras on both the front & rear of the bike I prefer the quality and sound from the Sony.

Rides were to Lake Eildon & Lake Mountain from Marysville which was one of the towns of Victoria badly burned during the 2005 bushfires. The ride up to lake Mountain shows the new growth on a scarred mountain side and it was quite an emotional ride knowing that so many had not only lost their homes but many their lives during those horrible days.

An absolutely beautiful part of Victoria and well worth the visit to see how Marysville is coming back to life. The Steavenson Waterfall has a lovely walk back to town and it is lovely lit up at night.

1990 Australian National Vincent Rally

The 1990 Australian National Vincent HRD Owners Club Rally that includes rare footage of Phil Irving – never before seen. Wonderful material for any Vincent HRD fan. Yes, at times the sound is poor but the content is priceless. Unbounded thanks to Bob Satterly who captured the images and sound for us all to treasure.

Australian National Vincent Rally 2012 ~ Bob Butler & his Outfit

Bob Butler is our club’s “treasured mascot” and he took me for a ride in his Vincent outfit at the recent rally, later he said that I had to take him for a ride afterwards so I did! Absolute fun, although I had trouble getting it into second gear. Probably a good thing since we were in a Caravan Park
