DOCQ UPDATE 24 May 2020
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.
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 www.ducati.com.au and join DOCQ as your official Desmo Owners Club - just log in to your profile on www.ducati.com.au, 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.
Many thanks to Gary Dolphin of RBM Racing at Geebung for recently renewing his sponsorship of our club, particuarly in these difficult times. Gary is a long time Ducati mechanic who does work on motorcycle service & repair, road & dirt bikes, race preparation, projects, engine re-builds, restorations and work that other shops wont do.
Also, please note that members get a 10% discount from Matt Scott at Clean Ride Brisbane and a 5% discount off the RRP of apparel and Ducati accessories from Brisbane Motorcycles. Please also support our other financial sponsors Gowanloch Ducati, Maverik Motorcycle Tours, Ted and Pauline Tatum of Forestdale Pet Friendly Accommodation and Ian Oakes of Warana Imports as well as Shannons Insurance.
Hope to see you on the road soon.
