harley unveils pan america

After many hints and previews, Harley-Davidson’s ‘Pan America’ adventure tourer was officially unveiled in February and will be rolled out globally this year. Harley’s launch video for the upcoming model was high on style but light on content. There was also some mixed messaging, like a claim that Harley have always been in the adventure touring space, then adding the freedom of design with the Pan America came from never producing a bike like this before. The launch video also states that the Pan America is the first adventure tourer designed and built in America, ignoring the Buell XB12x Ulysses from more than 15 years ago, which was also the first bike to put Harley-Davidson in the adventure touring game, albeit indirectly. Regardless, what is clear is that the Pan America is a…

’29 harley tops shannons summer auction

A restored 1929 Harley-Davidson J Model topped the motorcycle consignments at Shannons’ recent Summer Timed Online Auction. Held online from 16 to 23 February, the auction included 23 motorcycles, covering a multitude of makes, models and eras – everything from a 1928 BMW to a ‘2009’ Harris-Suzuki and a 125cc Suzuki GAG bike to a 1000cc Honda Goldwing. The bikes were part of an overall consignment list that numbered 173 lots and included automobiles, garagenalia and other collectables. Of the 23 motorcycles consigned, all found new owners, with the ’29 Harley J Model the best seller. Introduced in 1915, initially with a 61ci (1000cc) F head v-twin and a three-speed transmission, the J Model was advanced for its time, with subsequent improvements keeping it at the top of the range. For 1929, the J-Model’s final…

2021 all british rally cancelled

This year’s 44th All British Rally has been cancelled due to the continuing coronavirus pandemic. Organised and hosted by the BSA Motorcycle Owner’s Association (BSAMOA), the All British Rally (ABR) has been a staple of the Australian motorcycling events calendar for more than 40 years. However, being able to run the event safely, as well as do it justice, is simply unachievable under the constantly changing COVID environment, so the BSAMOA have made the reluctant decision to postpone this year’s rally to a TBC date in 2022. As the ABR attracts close to 1,000 entries, it would be impossible to meet the sort of social distancing requirements and public gathering limits necessary under COVID-19. Additionally, with those same entrants coming from all over the country, being able to adapt to the sort of snap…

3-day vintage enduro is back for 2021

After last year’s last year’s Australian Three-Day Vintage Enduro (A3VE) was cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic, the event is back on for 2021. Run by the Vintage Enduro Riders Inc. (VERi), the second A3VE is scheduled for 6-9 May in Victoria. The first A3VE saw almost 100 entrants take pre-1988 dirt bikes through all manner of challenging terrain, covering almost 400km over the three days. The 2021 A3VE will run to a similar format, using many of the same routes through the Wombat State Forest and private properties in Blackwood (25km northwest of Bacchus Marsh) that were used in 2019. Entrants will cover around 150km each day, made up of two or three circuits of different 50–60km trail loops, plus Enduro and Cross Country special tests. Blackwood Recreation Reserve will serve…
