 2021 National Veteran Motorcycle Rally

The Committee now invites you to submit your ENTRY (attached) and get ready to join in the fun.

All systems are go and planning continues for a five day hub rally based in the tall timber town of Manjimup, WA, from 17-22 OCT 2021.

The 2021 NVMR in Manjimup has a focus on the riding and camaraderie that goes hand in hand with a good day out on two wheels.  The routes are all through hilly forested country (we don’t think they’re as big as the Tassie hills) and Lunch stops are in small country towns.  Covid 19 has affected our planning for meal venues in particular so ther will be three lunch stops where you will take your pick of local eateries and buy you own lunch.

Hopefully by now you have chosen your accommodation, but we do ask that you let us know here you will be staying and get your booking confirmed soon.  The Rally HQ will be at the Tigers Football Club on the edge of Manjimup which offers us some excellent facilities.  There will be morning teas and evening meals available here as well as a bar open each evening, undercover areas, and a small workshop.  On the Wednesday afternoon there will be a Swap Meet and some other activities to keep you busy at the clubrooms, so we hope you’ll join in.

This year the host club is the Indian Harley Club (Bunbury) Inc..  The IHC invites you to stay on and join in the celebration of their 50h Anniversary at a rally the following weekend 30-31 OCT in Bunbury, WA (approx.. 130km north of Manjimup)

Kind regards, Your 2021 NVMR Committee
