2016 Triumph Rat Rally To Be Biggest Ever

The sound of hundreds of Triumph motorcycles strapping through Australia's best mountain roads will mark the 2016 Triumph Rat Rally which is to be held at the Jindabyne Station Resort from 11th – 13th March.

Triumph Australia is expecting the 2016 Rat Rally to be its biggest ever.

This year’s rally will be held at the Jindabyne Station Resort from 11th – 13th March.

The Rat Rally is the biggest social event on the Triumph Australia calendar, and the Snowy Mountains setting will provide the opportunity to experience some of the best mountain roads and local destinations in Australia.

Triumph says this year’s event will have even more for participants to be involved in.

There will be more demo ride opportunities with test rides available from Friday afternoon and all day Saturday.

Among the fleet of test bikes will be the new Bonneville Street Twin and T120 range.

The entertainment line up across the weekend will include 80’s rock cover bands, comedians and stunt riders.

A barbecue dinner will be held on Friday night and a 70’s and 80’s trivia night is planned for Saturday night.

The “Show and Shine” competition is expected to attract the usual stunning display of bikes and a range of prizes will be on offer across a number of categories.

Triumph will also have clothing and accessories for sale throughout the weekend.

Triumph Australia’s technical manager Cliff Stovall will be available to demonstrate the technical innovations and safety features of the 2016 range, and professional photographer Danny Wilkinson will be on hand to capture photos.

Triumph Marketing Manager, Mark Berger says the rally is always a great social event, with plenty of riding, plenty of laughs and great entertainment.

“Getting together for riding events with our customers is always a highlight of our calendar; the brand attracts such a passionate range of riders on all different Triumph bike styles from supersports to big bore cruisers, adventure bikes and classics.”

While the event is primarily aimed at Triumph owners, the organisers are encouraging people to bring their friends regardless of what they ride.

Check in for the rally will be open from 3pm on Friday 11th March at the Station Resort.

Tickets are just $150 and include meals, entertainment and a commemorative T-shirt, and can be purchased online before the event.
