yes it got moved to the 29th because the museum had some other gig on the same day and they thought the crowds would be to big or something like that. it's on their website...

yep, Sunday 29 November between 10.00 am and 2.00 pm. Bikes start arriving about 9.30 with quite a few leaving around 12.30. I wouldn't arrive much after 11.00 if you wish to see all the bikes.

It's held in the forecourt of the Melbourne Museum, carlton (between the museum and exhibition buildings)

I'd guess that the weather did deter a few riders (myself included but then I did see the looming dark grey clouds and wasn't interested in getting wet or spending a few hours cleaning the MV). Irrespective the turn out was pretty good with quite a few interesting bikes on display such as the 125 cc Fantic choppers (yes, they are Italian), the 500 cc classic Ducati race bike, #150 (puts out about 50 hp and has lapped the Island in 1.58), the superbly restored Ducati 2 stroke 50 S/L.

A selection of some of the interesting bikes

It doesn't show up in the photo but the Senna had some serious money spent on the mods including full carbon, levers, rearsets, wheels, brakes (& probably forks) and most anything else you could change. I think he still has all the originals and not sure if he has done any engine mods.
