About 70 riders from as far as Adelaide will take to south-west roads for the showcase event, organised by the Warrnambool and District Motorcyle Owners Club.
It starts on Saturday with a display from 10.30am on the Civic Green where Warrnambool enthusiast Rob Kenna will speak about his trip to the Isle of Man, where he competed in the world-famous Manx Grand Prix last year.
Riders will leave at 1pm for a trip to Grassmere to inspect a unique collection of 70-plus motorcycles displayed in the George Taylors Store.
The group will then travel via Wangoom, Framlingham and Panmure to Laang for afternoon tea at the shooting range before returning to Warrnambool for an evening meal, when local drag racer Tony Frost will speak about his exploits.
On Sunday morning riders return to the Civic Green for a 9am departure on a 270-kilometre trip to Mount Eccles and Portland before returning via Dutton Way to Warrnambool.
Club ride organiser Bruce Brown said it was a popular event which brought riders from across the state and South Australia.
“We usually get about 70 riders with machines from the mid-20s through to modern times,” he said.
“There’s a good cross-section to see. There will be a barbecue and refreshments provided at the Civic Green provided by Rotary on Saturday.”
