Good News

The next BMWOCSA Classic Bikes Ride Day is on Sunday 12 April 2015


Riders will gather at Central at 9.30am for a 10.00am departure. [Coles Express Servo,111 West Tce, City.]

It will,as usual, be an easy scenic ride

It is a BYO day.

Seating and shelter is provided at the venue.

Some people may wish for their partners etc that do not pillion to be part of the day.

 I will give out our destination on the morning of the ride and they could arrange to arrive there at 12.00 Midday.

The venue is solely ours for the day.  It is easily located some distance from a very well known town.

I think it is unwise to have cars and bikes mixed up together on a ride, so I would discourage that sort of participation.

If you do take advantage of the partner concept, please advise your people to stay out of the Car Park in front of theHall as that is where we will be parking the bikes. There is ample parking for Cars elsewhere.

We hope our members with later model bikes will as usual ride with us as they are an integral part of the day. Their partners etc are also very welcome to take advantage of the separate participation arrangements.

A full tank of fuel is required so please arrive in time if you wish to fill up at Central.

We request all of our Members who use the benefits of the Historic Register to give particular attention to their  participation in this  BMWOCSA  allocated Classic Bikes Ride Day.

If the weather appears inclement, come to the General Meeting on the10th,check the website or email me for further details, but give me time to answer.[ migl@bigpond.com].


Hope for fine weather.

Olde’ is good,



Could this interest you?, even though "Victor Harbor" 
spelt wrongly.


And don't forget to check the "Calendar"  for all future events.


Mid Week rides

Please note that these rides are not official Club events, 
but are ad hoc meetings of like minded Club members, so it would pay to have a 
"ring around" before arriving at the meeting point, or you may find that you are on your own.

We always try for new roads and destinations but unfortunately we have travelled most within about a 250 km. radius of the meeting point, so if you have what you consider to be a day ride/destination that could be of interest to your fellow members and visitors, please rock up at the Tower Hotel, 621 Magill Road, Magill, 5072 and lead us astray, we'd love that.

Our next mid week is on Wednesday the 15th. of October, 2014.

Ride Etiquette.
On rare occasions on recent rides, lead riders have taken off without using their mirrors to ensure that the rest of the riders are still with him/her. In cities or larger towns the group can easily be separated by other traffic or traffic lights, and of course in the country, if the leader cannot see the group, how will he/she be aware of a breakdown or worse, an accident?.  So please watch out for your following rider, even on dirt, take time to look.
Courtesy can be contageous, try it.

Please be aware that rides may be cancelled at short notice due to inclement weather or for any other reason deemed neccessary by the Club Captain or the ride Co-ordinator. If you are unsure of an event, contact details can be found in this site under "Contact Us".
