    Yet again it F%#^*$g rained. The Z Owners have officially been contacted by the Bureau of Meteorology as a national drought breaking service for remote communities in need of rainfall. Communities will be required to organise an official motorcycle event, invite the "Z Owners" club then sit back and watch those dams fill. If this keeps up I might have to turn up on a jet-ski rather than the bike. Apart from this slight hint of whinging the day went exceptionally well with a good spread of members from afar. We had recently new member "ED" from Bunker Hill which is past Ballarat, complete a 725km round trip on his 900 to take part in the day. As well as "BOS" brother of Simmo who rode from Bairnsdale . Ride captain "Dezi" organised a great back road trek through the hills of Deziville terminating at the pub in Korumburra for lunch. It was a bit passive this year due to the dampness of the roads but we all still had a good time. Of course there was one member who decided to test the one and only rule about what bike you can ride. He was told by our ride captain Dezi in plain English to PISS OFF ! in which he did.

    See you next year !

    Note: Patches for those who participated will be available shortly.

    "Yes that's correct" Z Owners have proven yet again if you want your business to close down, just have us attend for our monthly club meetings. We are now considering going into the demolition business as we seem to have no problem with wrecking things or having them close down. Unfortunately our current meeting place "Leinster Arms Hotel" lease has run out and will be be re-developed into a multi story unit block later this year. This is going to be done despite the business going successfully, and without a word of protest from East West Tunnel lobby group about the loss of a historic building in the area. As a conspiracy theory without any proof, could interested parties in the hotel re-development group, been part of the anti East West Tunnel group ?

     We are sorry to leave the Leinster Arms Hotel as the staff have been very accommodating and friendly providing a perfect venue for our club.



    After much consumption of alcohol at many venues, we have managed to find a great hotel that should fit our needs and only 2 minutes from our current location. The venue offers good parking facilities with plenty of room on footpath for sensible bike parking. We have warned the owner of our history in closing venues, but he as assured us that he has an 8 year license on the premises. Bar meals are very reasonably priced with a variety of tap beers available. The beer garden is big enough for an outdoor meeting in the summer. So please attend our first meeting at our new venue.

    25TH & 26TH AUGUST 2018



    AMCA Judging entries are now open and will close on the 30th of June for the 2018 National Meet.


    With the 2018 AMCA Australia National Meet fast approaching members should consider entering their motorcycle/s into the Judging Program.  There are three basic criteria to be met to enter a motorcycle in the AMCA Judging program.

    1. You must be an AMCA member in good standing, or in other words, a current financial member.
    2. Your motorcycle must be 35 years of age or older.  At the time of writing includes machines manufactured up to including 1983.
    3. You must be able to start your motorcycle for inspection by a designated judge at the meet.


    Unlike many judging programs the AMCA program is relatively simple.  Machines are not judged against each other, rather each motorcycle is judged on its merit against one standard.  That standard is how the motorcycle would have looked the day it left the factory.

    Members link to the Judging Rules. See the AMCA Australia “LINKS’ page.



    We look forward to welcoming our good friend, the AMCA Chief Judge; Mr. Don DZURICK, back for the 2108 Australian AMCA Meet. Don is a true devotee of collectable motorcycles and is eager to share his knowledge and also learn from those with a similar passion.

    Finally, If you are interested in becoming a judge please contact us and let us know of your particular area of expertise in machine Marques, wheels, plating, saddles, paint etc.  Those who took the time to assist with judging last year could not speak highly enough of the experience and are looking forward to returning this year. We are looking to recruit judges to assist in the many and varied machines we are beginning to attract to the judging field.  Training will be provided and with the AMCA Chief Judge in attendance, you will be in good hands.

    With the Meet fast approaching, get those machines ready and I would encourage you to enter your pride and joy in the judging field.  Nothing ventured, nothing gained!


    For all judging enquiries please contact Ian Pryde on 0412 575 965 or by email ian.pryde@optusnet.com.au
