What we're about

We are a social group for Gay and Lesbian motorcycle riders and their friends around the Melbourne area. So, if you're looking for a relaxed group to socialise and ride with we are the group for you.

It doesn't matter what's your level of experience.
It doesn't matter your gender identity, age, or sexual orientation.
It doesn't matter whether you ride a sportbike, a cruiser, a sports tourer, a full tourer.
All are welcome to come along.

We only have one rule for joining: You need to have a current motorcycle learner's permit or bike license. And remember - be respectful to other members, ride safe and enjoy the ride!
