I woke up this morning and reflected on what a great day it had been yesterday - sometimes you just need a little time for the appreciation to really sink in!

Rather than post more teaser pics, below is a link to a gallery with around 200 pics from the event. Please keep in mind that I'm just an amateur photographer with a low end Canon consumer SLR and a Panasonic P & S. Some of the pics mean more to me than others. It includes race bikes and spectators' historic mounts. A lot of my youth was tied up with CB 750 Hondas, Z1's and Z1R Kawasaki's. My mates are Norton owners and restorers, so some shots are purely for their benefit.

My wife and I went to the very first of these events 20 years ago and I just found my old pin that I bought back then. It was such a small event then and no-one knew if it would work out. Something that hasn't changed is full track access by motorcycle or car and full access to pit lane included in the admission, mind you at $45 each entry isn't that cheap.

The length of the PI circuit means that some of the really old bikes actually don't race here - that main straight is just too long for them I think, so lots of post classic and forgotten era Japanese stuff racing.

Pics are best viewed by clicking on 'slideshow'
