We are a club made up of a diverse range of riders and bikes, brought together by a common desire to enjoy and participate in the sport of motorcycle riding.
Formed out of a group of friends who enjoyed riding and touring, and officially incorporated in 1975, the ORMTC is one of the longest continually operating motorcycle clubs in Australia.
Our strength lies in our diversity. With around 30 members there is always someone to join you on your journey.
Club activities include day rides, overnight camping trips and long weekend tours. There are social outings and the chance to participate in skill enhancement courses. Above all else there is the friendship and support of like minded individuals.
It doesn't matter what you ride, only that you do ride and enjoy yourself doing so. Whether you're a new rider on a 250cc bike, someone returning to riding, or a seasoned rider you can find a place in the ORMTC.
Runs are held each month on the weekend following the club meeting and the Sunday two weeks after that. Day runs vary in length from 100km to 600km, while overnight and long weekend tours allow the club to venture farther afield. All runs are planned well in advance by at least two club members. Runs are led by the Run Leader, with a Tail End Charlie following the last rider to ensure a degree of safety for all who attend. Each rider can set their own pace, whether it be a leisurely journey or some more spirited riding. A first aid and basic motorcycle repair kit is carried on all rides. For those interested in off-road, the ORATS organise an overnighter on the weekend between the other two rides.
The club participates in a variety of other events including Charity and Awareness Rides, Rallies and inter-club challenges. We even have our own event occurring biennially which is known as Benger.
Come along as a visitor for a few rides, if you like the club then at one of the meetings you can be nominated for membership. For new members there is also a one-off nomination fee of $5. Thereafter, fees are $30 a year.
Learner riders are not permitted to visit on Club Runs, try a couple of Social Rides first.
Learners must ride with their own licenced shadow.
