    So, I've been seriously thinking about this for some time now - a legitimate "quarter liter" club of sorts here in Victoria. It doesn't seem too difficult to set it up, I just need a few committed foundation members, have an annual meeting and fill out a bunch of paperwork for Vicroads. There would be an annual fee to fund a few administrative bits and pieces (not for any profit or anything) but then we could manage our own permits and have a bit of independence from other clubs. I have various issues with what I've seen from the local clubs, CCJMC would be my choice if I couldn't do my own thing a bit.

    I've spoken to Kiffsta and thus far he is still thinking about whether it is feasible to affiliate it with this site, so it may not necessarily be. Regardless, I still want to float the idea and see if there would be any support for it from some other people around here

    All the details like name, club description, logo, all that jazz... not wanting to talk about that just yet. More if other victorian/melbourne locals would be willing to commit to this sort of thing.

    Tagging a few people to get the discussion rolling (hopefully no one minds)...

    Peace.

    Looks like a great plan! There is a huge following of MC22's around
    I'm happy to help where I can, even if the Fizzer400 is in a perpetual state of 'broken'
    But I'm keen to see where this goes :)

    I'd be interested, but I'm already in a club. As a guide Joker, I pay $60 a year for membership and we have one general meeting per year and several club ride days. The club has over 300 members and has capped the membership e.g. if someone leaves the club, then there is a spot for a new member. Keep in touch though, as I think a 2fiddycc club/group is a great idea for VIC.

    I'm back on the Gold Coast now so I won't be able to join the club. I might be interested in one more local.

    i would be on the fence, living where i do there is not many bikers let alone 250's. so would be nice to join a club as such. but being 350km from Melbourne would be interesting to stick with a club.. if i were to move closer then definitely would be joining.

    Hi Guys, still working on this one. @Frankster yes I think it would be around that, massive club fees aren't necessary as it's not a profit thing. I think the next stage is to make a public facebook group that allows us to invite others into it. I've come up with a concept logo, but I'm not a graphic artist so have relied on some free logo generator haha...

    I think the next stage is to get 10 people who are willing to commit, after which there should be a meeting and the club "officially" established with a record of members, first lot of fees etc. Out of those people we will need a couple to take the reigns of some club duties regarding permits, the rest of it I should be able to handle until the time (if and when) the club numbers grow.

    As @GreyImport is the big cheese around here it's up to him now if we are affiliated with 2fiftycc.com or not - no pressure though because nothing stopping independence either.

    So those that are here, in the next couple of days look on facebook for C250 and feel free to join and invite others. We'll see where it goes from there, numbers may take some time or they may not, we'll see!

    Great mate find it on FB and request a join. We're approaching 10 people but need to spread the word around so it gets more visibility. I'd like to think we get a bit more serious once we hit 20 people... look at having a get together etc.

    Nice man well feel free to advertise it up in the group or something (best to ask for admin permission) and hopefully generate some interest.
