Ducati Owners Club Victoria

About the DOCV

What's so special about the DOCV?

twinspursThe Ducati Owners Club of Victoria is one of the oldest and largest Ducati clubs in the world. We are an official factory affiliated club and a leading member of the global Ducati Owners Club community. 

In 2016, DOCV celebrated its 40th anniversary and as part of the celebrations Russ Murray, a Life Member, published a brief history of the club encompasing the rides, magazine, social activites and members. Check it out, it's a great read: 40 years of the Ducati Owners Club of Victoria.

As a club we are many things: a club for Ducati enthusiasts young and old, a classic bike club, a club for getting your Ducati out on a race track, a family-friendly social club with popular regular monthly meetings and weekend getaways, an excuse to get out and ride every fortnight on our regular club rides, and much more.  It is sometimes difficult to pin in down, but we are a club of passionate, fun-loving motorcyclists who love their bikes.

If it involves having fun on your Ducati we're there ... and no, you don't have to be male - the club has a strong female membership and throughout the club's history we've had female Presidents, Secretaries, Club Captains, Permit Officers, Merchandise Officers and more.

We have an extensive library of Ducati specialist tools for member use catering all the way back to pre-desmo small-bore bikes.  We also have the latest tools and electronic devices for your late-model Ducati.  Not to mention the excellent library of Ducati and motorcycling books and videos dispensed by our club librarian.  

We produce a fantastic mailed-to-you club magazine every month.  It is Desmoto - the Ducati club magazine by club members for club members.

All this Ducati-ness began way back in March 1976 when a group of enthusiastic and friendly Ducati owners who shared a passion for their motorcycles got together. Since that first meeting, the Club has developed into an organisation of members who all share that same passion for their beloved Ducatis.

The Club caters for bikes from all eras. While many members own modern Ducatis, there are a lot of members with older and rarer bikes tucked away in garages, sheds and the odd lounge room. Owners and their bikes get out and about on the regular DOCV organised rides (usually two a month) to the various motorcycle friendly roads around Melbourne and its environs. Often we see the older bikes, many with club plates, appear on occasions such as the Italian motorcycle concourse or the annual 'Bevelution' ride specifically for the old 'bevel' bikes - it's a sight and sound (and smell) to behold!

The Club also conducts a number 'fun-days' each year at the amazing Phillip Island circuit. These days are possibly the best of any days at a circuit you will find. We limit the numbers to 80 bikes to ensure plenty of actual track time and no traffic.  Beginners welcome.

Oh ... and we're not a bikie gang.  :-)
