ACT Netriders

Discussion in 'General Motorcycling Discussion' started by devonuto, Mar 30, 2006.

  1. Just wondering after coming to this website for about a year now, I've got to say I haven't noticed a lot of riders from Canberra or surrounding regions. So I thought I'd put a shout-out to any that may be here.

    Also, are there ever any organised events in the ACT?
  2. Devonuto,

    Lots of bikes and activities in the ACT! Last Sunday there was over 100 bikes (and probably more scooters than that) at Auto Italia. Ducati, Moto Guzi, Aprilia, Cagiva, Laverda, Moto Morini, Benelli, Bimota. Plus the odd cage - Ferrari, Lamborghini, Fiat, Lancia, Alfa Romeo etc

    If you are into Group rides, there are clubs for many brands (eg Ducati, HOG and BMW clubs), plus Old Sillies (if you're over 40), Usual Suspects (Old Sillies Mid Week Riders), Fat Bastards (but only if you're over 90 kilos).

    MRA ACT organises rides. Patriots, Vietnam Vets, and Veterans are here for those with a military bent. V&V (Veteran and Vintage) MCC for those with old bikes. Rebels for those with societal issues (specialising in 'fashion police' - telling others what they can and can't wear, with threats of violence).

    All of the above is without any research - there's probably much more around.

  3. Hey from Aranda.

    Like Maka said - there's a bunch of groups.
    I know these a few other Netriders about, as well as a bunch of OC's. Theres CanbRider too. Im part of that.

    Google any of those, and youll find something.

    BTW - i went to that Moto Italia. I SO want that Paul Smart 1000 Ducati *drool* :)

  4. hiya from Conder

    yeah, the Ulyssies are having a ride on Sunday.

    I'm going with my SO and a friend who's a member
  5. Hi, another Canberra rider here. Hey Lurch-o-RAMA, you're just around the corner from me, I'm in Wybalena Grove, Cook.

    What's this CanbRiders? I haven't come across them before.
  6. I feel all alone...

    I'm a southsider: Conder at the moment.

    Who's for an ACT meet?
