The origins of the Italian Motorcycle Club can be traced back to June 25 1994. It was formed in Launceston and was initially known as the Ducati Owners Club of Tasmania. It soon became apparent that there was a great deal of interest in other Italian brands and these people began riding with the Ducati Club. As a result, on January 21 1996, the Club changed it's name to The Italian Motorcycle Club to reflect the expanding interests of those the Club was now catering for. This name change was a healthy move and as a result Club membership has grown enormously, regularly averaging about 100 members state-wide per year. A suitable Constitution was drawn up and the Club became incorporated as a result.
