FOR motor enthusiasts who prefer two wheels over four, there is the Goulburn Valley Motorcycle Club (GVMCC). Next week they will hold their inaugural Motorcycle Swap Meet and postie bike muster Sunday, May 29.
“Honda postie bikes have been around for 60 years. They’re easy to ride so they have been used around the world for all sorts of things like delivering mail and basic jobs,” said vice president, Allan Brunt.
GVMCC is largely a social club connecting people interested in motorcycles and riding. Members have varied interests, backgrounds, and of course, bikes.
Allan has a collection but his latest addition, a 2021 KTM 390 Adventure bike, has already clocked 600,000kms by the passionate rider. He says it is a light bike, which makes it easier to handle and comes with a range of safety and lifestyle features.
Todd Huggard and beloved 1972 Harley-Davidson 1200 cc 4-speed electra glide is a touring style bike, by contrast this bike is vastly different from the adventure. He’s owned it for five years.
Andrew Tynan’s 2012 Triumph Tiger is one of his latest additions to his collection, purchasing the 800cc adventure bike from a local seller in Nathalia. In three months, he has recorded 400,000kms. The bike has a 3-cylinder liquid fuel motor. The tyres on adventure bikes are suited for off-road and road riding.
GVMCC meet at in Undera on the third Wednesday each month. The following week they explore the regions on a ‘tea ride’, where the club ventures to a country pub for dinner and a night away.
The swap meet and postie muster is on Sunday, May 29 at the Undera Park Speedway, 8am-3pm. Sites available until May 25, $20 per site with entry from 7am for stallholders. Entry costs $5 or gold coin for children. More details are published in Community Connect. For more info and payment options, please visit www.gvmccswapmeet.com/
