The Historic Motorcycle August 2020

All members receive a copy of our monthly journal, The Historic Motorcycle. The journal provides a broad range of topics such as; bike reviews, member profiles, technical articles, rally and ride reports, list of upcoming events and other Club news. Members are encouraged to contribute motorcycle related articles for inclusion in the journal.

HMCCQ events such one day and weekend rallies are regularly held. One or more of these rallies is usually held each month. All Areas hold monthly meetings and conduct one or more regular weekly rides.

A number of Areas organise motorcycle only swap meetings annually. In recent years these have been held at Maleny, Lowood, Pine Rivers, Fraser Coast and Laidley. Details on all Club rallies, rides and swap meetings are available on the Events pages.

One of the significant advantages of being a Club member is the ability to tap into a wealth of knowledge on almost any type of historic motorcycle/technology. Regular quotes in Member Profiles, when asked ‘What do you like best about our Club’, are typically “the camaraderie” and “the broad range of activities available”.

Further information about the Club is covered in the other pages of this site. Please visit the HMCCQ Contacts page if you would like to send us an online inquiry.
