Good Afternoon everyone,


Due to the ongoing COVID-19 situation, ARDC has made the decision to cease all activities scheduled at Sydney Motorsport Park, effective immediately.


We look forward to continuing the Ducati supported track days as soon as possible.


Until then, stay safe!


All the best,




Kind regards,

Now its been read 20 times without reply have you all been out riding with Yahahondazuki riders who have mistaken your fingers for the noodles they fuel their bikes on? its mid week now so even your hangover (hanging over the side of your Ducati mid corner making you excited yet dazed by the power and handling) should have worn off by now!! :P

I dont think im wrong about it being ideal conditions and I would love to read about it as well as love to see any pictures you took of your bike after the ride or the new bike yet to be ridden until its not raining again even though it wont hurt the farmers or our large needed water supply dams to help you all keep your beautiful italian stallion clean and to wash you Ducati clothing attire clean :P
Now im not talking about writing a novel like im sure you have seen my good mate Vince write just a short or long story its up to you on where you have been and how the conditions were and your favourite part of the ride (being on it would be mine alas no more)
So please share us anything im sure my mate Richards probably been too busy with work and driving 1 of his amazing italian car collection instead of riding his new Ducati that i wish i could see with its tri coloured fairings 1098 (he told me he bought after seeing and hearing my old 916 outside his business before i changed job leaving him on my back wheel out of sight inspiring him to have one too)
Yep, Trip (a Lake Mac local and now President) has kicked off this worthwhile tradition again; here it is:

Summer news.

Fellow Delegates,

Welcome to our revamped quarterly newsletters, hope you find them interesting and informative.
The MCC continues to represent you at meetings with Government agencies where the MCC is seen as “the go to organisation” for all matters relating to motorcycling. The MCC has regular meetings with the State Insurance Regulatory Authority (SIRA). A report on recent meetings to discuss CTP is contained in this newsletter.

The MCC has also recently met with Transport for NSW to discuss the use of Audio Tactile Line Marking, Temporary Portable Rumble Strips which are used at roadwork site, Road Rules Awareness Week and the development of a video on ABS braking which will describe how it feels when ABS is activated.
The MCC is now webcasting our monthly General Meetings.  If you wish to participate in these webcasts, please contact our Secretary at [email protected]
I ask that everyone support the MCC even at the smallest level by joining the Associate Members Scheme for a measly $25 insuring the continuance of the MCC into the future.  Plus, there is the 2 tiered breakdown service and discounted insurance deal from Swann.  “Helping Those Who Ride, Decide”. Go to our website to sign up.
Keep riding and smiling and remember to expect that all other road users cannot see you.  Act as if you are invisible, consider an escape route at every intersection or encounter with other road users and ride to your ability and comfort level.  A great ride is one where you arrive home, safe and sound.

Motorcycle Council of NSW meetings
The Motorcycle Council of NSW meets on the first Monday of each month at
Club Ryde, 724 Victoria Rd, Ryde at 6:30 PM.

Meetings are not only for clubs or delegates. All motorcyclists are invited to attend.

Next meetings  - 6th April 2020
4th May 2020
1st June 2020

Im glad i couldnt afford it then because i would have just drove in there!!
So, who benefits from the entry money ?

No-one apparently. Just got the below from Graeme, who is a thoroughly decent chap and all power to him!

The All Italian Day is scheduled for the 1st March is NOT PROCEEDING - due to the cost and time required to organise the event.  I just don’t have the time.
If this is causing any problems I apologise for that.  I have asked others to assist but it is all too hard.
Maybe later in the year.
