About 60 vintage and veteran motorcycles from around south-east Queensland will converge on Kumbia at the weekend for the annual Bunya Rally.
The timed rally, organised by the Historic Motorcycle Club of Queensland’s Kingaroy branch, consists of two “secret” routes which riders will negotiate on Sunday.
Club spokesman Col Rogerson said the bikes would start leaving the Kumbia Sportsground in groups of threes at 9:01am precisely on Sunday morning. One group would explore a 180km course around the Bunya Mountains while the older motorcycles would undertake a shorter 128km route.
They would return to the Kumbia Sportsground between 10:30am and 11:00am on Sunday morning for a 45-minute smoko before continuing off again on the second-leg of their two courses.
They’ll be back at the Kumbia Sportsground about 1:00pm for lunch, after which trophies will be presented to the winning riders.
Spectators who’d like to inspect the historic machines can visit the Kumbia Sportsground on Sunday morning from about 8:00am or catch them during the smoko or lunch breaks.
- If you can’t make it to Kumbia, some of the historic bikes will also be making a trip into Kingaroy on Saturday afternoon. You’ll be able to catch them at the Kingaroy Show from about 2:30pm to 3:30pm.
