More than 300 enthusiastic motorcyclists from across the world will gather at Halls Gap from Friday for the 55th annual international BSA Rally.
Birmingham Small Arms Victoria will host the event in Australia for just the second time, the first time in western Victoria.
The event will run from Friday, November 9 to Thursday, November 15.
“We will ride around the district to places like Rupanyup, Murtoa, Dunkeld and plenty of other places,” rides captain Les Toohey said.
“We will have bike lineups at various towns for people to come and have a look at all of the old-fashioned bikes.”
One of the lineups will be outside J-Ward at Ararat from 11am on Wednesday.
Mr Toohey said hosting the international event in western Victoria and Halls Gap will provide a great boost for the local economy.
“There are going to be hundreds of people from everywhere using accomodation, getting fuel, buying food and contributing in various other ways with their money,” he said.
Members from the Stawell and Ararat communities will also participate in the largest gathering of BSA bikes ever in the southern hemisphere.
“It is all about enjoying riding our bikes and socialising and enjoying the countryside. It is quite a uniqe event,” Mr Toohey said.
