The Veteran and Vintage Motorcycle Club of South Australia 

Welcome to the Home Page of The Veteran and Vintage Motorcycle Club of South Australia.

The VVMCCSA started by dedicated group of people dedicated on preserving pre 1930 Motorcycles.

The VVMCCSA 1st meeting 29 Nov 1956 at Playford Street Glen Osmond and the club was formed.

 Oil leaks ignored—lies and mistruths about speed and reliability accepted’


Next ride – 


 The Tiddlers Run from the Kersbrook Oval, Glover Street, is still going ahead this year.

Glover street is opposite the Servo on the main road and the oval is on the left at the edge of the township.

Attend and park your car and trailer near the rear of the main building as per usual.

The ride will start from there leaving at 10am after the riders briefing.

It is a ride designed for the Veteran, Vintage, moped, scooters and lower powered machines.

Not any challenging hills, a gently rolling scenic ride at a leisurely pace through the lower Barossa Valley. 

After leaving Kersbrook and heading north, a regroup & toilet stop will be made at Williamstown.

Then we will meander via Cockatoo Valley to the major stop at the Lyndoch Village Green. 

There are several bakeries and coffee shops close handy.

After refreshments and probably many tall stories, we will head back to Kersbrook via Williamstown.

As I mentioned before the ride is designed for the tiddler style bikes, but all bikes are of course welcome.

Will be looking for a few corner marshals on the day.

As is usual for this time of the year, the ride will be cancelled if the Saturday evening forecast for Sunday’s temperature is 36c or greater. 

Also, if the Fire risk for the day is SEVERE or CATASTROPHIC it will be cancelled.

COVID may change things as well of course!

Feel free to contact me if you have any queries.

Corner Marshal information.

For members desiring to be a corner marshal on a club ride, please read this corner marshal duties about the do and don’ts. But you need to be trained and qualified to perform this important position.

One of advantages of being a corner Marshall is to to watch and see members riding towards you, with the awesome sound of their motorcycle, along with clashing of gears as that veteran and vintage motorcycle slowly gaining speed as they ride on. When the back up trailer arrives, you then can join the ride.
