We are a diverse group of people, meeting regularly across Victoria to organize and share the excitement of riding together and our common love of Vespa. We’re an official club, incorporated in the State of Victoria, and affiliated to the Vespa Club of Australia. Our members automatically become members of the Vespa World Club.

As an official club we proudly welcome riders of all Vespa - classic, modern, automatic, and geared. In the tradition of our parent club formed in 1957, women are very valued members.

There are crews also meeting and riding in Gippsland, Geelong, Bendigo, and the Mornington Peninsula. Attending one of the breakfast events is the best way for new members to meet us, experience the culture of the club, and then consider becoming a financial member.
