Starting a motorcycle club

Err How do I go about starting one?

We have a few lads here and we all enjoy a ride together, Thinking about riding a few trail rides etc that requires club affiliation to get a race licence.

As far as I know the only other club in town is a patched club or the speedway club.


Not looking to take over the world, just make it easy for us when we enter trail rides.

The other option is to I guess join the BMW tourers club etc.. But thought I would investigate this option first.

You'll need a club affiliated with the racing body ? That may not be easy/cheap. Don't think the bm TC NSW will be affiliated with the racing body .. so you may have to pick another club.

The BMWTC don't have affiliation with MA, so no licence. We have just started a club down here and our affiliation just came through, I'll ask around and see what's involved. Or you could PM Rowdy IM, he's on the committee.

http://www.gunnedahmcc.com/ .... looks to be your 'speedway club' .. from their front web page there would be a few trail riders in there already ... go to a meeting and talk to the members 1:1?

MA affiliated clubs list http://www.motorcycling.com.au/PDF_F...st_190314..pdf You might find one more suitable/local?

I would suggest talking to someone at MNSW. From my limited experience with them they are ok to deal with and i reckon will have all the info you need.

Come to Queensland - you'll only need two mates to form an Association . . .

"any other group of 3 or more persons by whatever name called, whether associated formally or informally and whether the group is legal or illegal."

Its a shame you wouldn't be allowed to do a Club Magazine, Lentil.


"Women's Weekly" is already a publication.

Could use "Women's Monthly" - apparently Iva Butt-rose refused Packer's demand to call her title that......

It would be great if they could use Go-Pro's to record the rides and then share with us.


Then again, if we just hired "Wild Hogs" from our local Video Ezy, it would save them a lot of editing.
