DOCQ UPDATE 22 August 2020
Ron Zelina
On the 22nd Aug the Queensland Government announced tightened restrictions on public gatherings with immediate effect in the SEQ area. Gatherings in public spaces are now limited to a maximum of 10 people. till further notice
Unfortunately, this meant we weren't able to hold the Bevel Brunch ride on the 23rd from Samford to Mt Mee.
The event is ONLY postponed for now, we will re arrange it as soon as restrictions ease.
Let's hope these additional restrictions are only short term measures.
DOCQ UPDATE 24 May 2020

Published on: 5/24/2020
Dear Members,
Thankfully a number of our riding restrictions are being eased and we are hopeful that we will be able to resume some form of basic club activities during July/August. This is subject to the issue of permits from Motorcycling Queensland for insurance purposes, which are currently suspended. We will have to wait and see what happens with border closures but we will keep you updated about events.

Moto Giro and Pre Giro Ride
The Moto Giro organisers have made the hard decision to cancel this year’s Giro. Unfortunately MQ was not in a position to issue permits for the event and restrictions on interstate travel and current social distancing requirements meant that accommodation, lunch and dinner venues for a 50+ group was unworkable. As a result the Pre Giro ride scheduled for 14 June has also been cancelled.
Club DOC kits

Our club DOC kits have arrived from Italy (Covid free). Due to the cost of postage, I will bring them with me to our next club meeting (whenever that may be) for distribution and future club rides. We will arrange to send out kits to members who cant make it to a meeting or ride. Remember that you can sign up at and join DOCQ as your official Desmo Owners Club - just log in to your profile on, and then go to My Ducati, one of the drop down menu items is "My club". There you will see "Join a DOC" and you should be able to join up DOCQ there or check your status. If you have any problems, let me know.
