About the Moto Guzzi Club of Victoria

The Leinster Arms Hotel, Gold St., Collingwood ─ home of the Moto Guzzi Club of Victoria.

Background The club was formed at a pub in 1981 by several like-minded individuals.  It still meets in a pub.  We're the largest Moto Guzzi club in Australia.

Our club represents all Moto Guzzi owners in Victoria.  Owners, riders and aficionados are invited to join.  You don't have to own a Moto Guzzi.
Social Nights
Social Sips and Committee Meetings are held on the first Wednesday of every month at the Leinster Arms Hotel.  Look for the Guzzis parked outside.  All members and prospective members are welcome.

Leinster Arms Hotel, 66 Gold Street, Collingwood.  03 94175720.
An informal Social Sip is held on the third Wednesday of the month.
Club Rides The club has an organised ride most months of the year.  Additionally, there are regular runs to Tasmania and the Snowy's, as well as the Ruptured Budgie Rally in Queensland and the Ragged Fringe Rally in NSW.

Details are listed on the Event Calendar.  Our ride guidelines are here.
The MGCoV won the award for the “foreign group from furthest away” at the 2011 Moto Guzzi 90th anniversary in Mandello, Italy.  Australians were the largest non-European contingent, ahead of the USA, Japan and Canada.
We went in 2016 for the 95th anniversary, freighted 48 Guzzis and toured Europe!

We’ll be back in 2021 for the big one.  
Club Rally The club's annual Spaghetti Rally is open to all motorcyclists.  It's held at the Edi Cutting camp ground on the King River, between Whitfield and Moyhu, in Victoria’s scenic north-east.

We are able to assist members to have their historic motorcycle(s) registered under the Club Plate Scheme. (i.e. 25 years older than the date of Permit Application).  
All club plate applications need to go to the Club Plate Scheme Registrar, John Fergusen.
