About the Club

Attention: open in a new window. PDFPrint

The BMW Motorcycle Club of Victoria is based in Melbourne and was founded by a small group of twenty members in 1975, holding its inaugural meeting on the 26th May. We have now grown into a club of considerable standing. In fact we are currently the largest BMW club (bike or car) in Australia. The Club offers numerous benefits to its members ranging from friendship provided by companionship of fellow enthusiasts to numerous social opportunities, and even assistance with working on your own bike.

Family involvement is encouraged with the Club offering family days like the annual dinner and Xmas party and other functions throughout the year. The prime objective is to encourage motorcycling with all Club activities circling around that objective.

Membership is open to all motorcycle enthusiasts and their families. Full membership is restricted to owners of BMW motorcycles. Family memberships provide for partners and any children under 18 years of age to be recognised for their involvement in the club.  Only one person in a family membership may vote.

Riding motorcycles is what we love to do. There are many rides organised by the club each year. From short rides, to functions in the city, to safaris that travel the length and breadth of the country. We have day rides of around 300km and weekends spent travelling a little further. There are always plenty of options. Rides organised by the BMW Motorcycle Club of Victoria are always well planned in advance; browse to the 'Events' page where you will find the next 3 months rides listed and diagrams of starting points for all club rides. 

Technical knowledge is available to members who wish to work on their own machine and has proven invaluable. Whether you are intending to do a minor service or a more challenging mechanical repair, the Club offers some specialist tools enabling the member to do the job, with no shortage of knowledgeable persons to assist with advice. The Club also offers 3 Service Days per year. Service Days are designed to provide members with a venue where they can get together to service their bikes, with a level of assistance required to perform the tasks at hand. It provides a fantastic opportunity for members and family to get together socially & talk the talk.
