Club Events

The Club run many sorts of events from our fortnightly weekend rides, through to overnighters or weekends away (not to be missed) to our fantastic Fun Day events at the Phillip Island circuit.  This is the place to keep your eye on to see what is happening. 

Events may appear here before registration is open. If  the event is a limited-numbers event, there may be a wait list option for you to put your name down in case anyone cancels. 

Many events are free, some are not, some events require a deposit or full payment up front, some events have limited numbers.  So, be sure to check the event details by clicking on the event below.  In the event that you are no longer able to attend a paid for event we do have a Refund Policy which you can review here.

Only financial club members may book an event, although unless the event is specified as 'members only', a club member may book for their non-members guests.  Again, check the event details.

    General Meetings are back!  That's right, we are back to meeting in person at the Manningham.  

    For May we are doing a Trivia Night!  That's right, bring your most obscure general MOTORCYCLE knowledge to win prizes and the glory of knowing, or learning, stuff about the world of motorbikes in general, and Ducati in particular. 


    Meetings kick off at 8pm but you are welcome to come earlier to enjoy a meal with other club members and catch up before the official activities commence.

    You know the long, hot Licola ride in February. Well this is a cold, wet but short ride to Tallarook in August. They are calendar opposite but Indian summer conditions are possible. Certainly it is nearing the end of winter and worth a shot for a day out of town.

    It is a Sunday ride leaving Platters at 9:45. We will fit most of the action in the morning including something of the Cobaw Ranges and the boulder-strewn, granite country around Pyalong. Lunch is at the refurbished Tallarook Hotel and followed by a return ride to Healesville.

    An 'easy' rated day but does include two unsealed roads that add to 4 km. Both roads help avoid busy ones as well as make for an interesting route. Take comfort they won’t be dusty.

    Total distance is 280 km. Leave behind Gortex, thermals and Pinlock at your peril.

    This sets the date for the 2022 Tiger Hunt:

    Friday, Feb 11 – Sunday, Feb 20, 2022

    Macquarie River, Ross

    The plan is to head straight over the Highlands from Devonport for the first night at Strathgordon. It is followed by two nights at Tullah Lakeside Lodge on the west coast, single nights at Deloraine and St Helens, then a double-header in Hobart to finish. It is a double clockwise swirl that gets the west in first, just to confuse the anti-counterclockwisers.

    Features of this Hunt include a multi-option day based from Tullah, quality time in the hills of northern Tasmania, working in the historic town of Ross (pictured) and sampling some new roads down south. More detail to be published in August Desmoto.

    Provisional route is here
