AMTRA is a club that was formed to cater specially for the Trailrider.  AMTRA is a non-competitive club and holds rides throughout Victoria. Our members organise rides in areas they know or want to explore. Club members are invited to participate via the rides being advertised on the web site or the clubs monthly newsletter, AMTRACTION as well as at the monthly meeting.
AMTRA was formed on the 16th of January 1969 and the first meeting was held at Milledge Brothers Yamaha with 24 people in attendance. The club membership varies and in the mid seventies had over 500 members. We average around 300 members a year at present.  AMTRA members have always been very pro-active at Trail riding and helping to preserve the rights of trailbike riders and access to the track network for riders of registered trailbikes.
AMTRA rides consist mainly of day rides however we also have weekend, Easter and Christmas camps organised by members. Rides are held in all areas of Victoria with day rides reasonably close to Melbourne being very popular. AMTRA owns a property south of Myrtleford in northern Victoria which is free for members to use as base to explore the Alpine areas. There is direct access to the track network from our property and it is a very popular place for members to base rides from. As we ride on gazetted roads all members must have a valid licence or Learners Permit and a registered bike.
AMTRA members have also been known to organise the occasional car rally, 4wd trip, theatre night and restaurant night. We encourage families to enjoy the camping and social activities the club runs.
AMTRA meetings are held on the last Wednesday of the month (except for December) from around 8 pm onwards at the St Davids Church hall opposite Tunstall Square Shopping Centre in Doncaster East. Meetings comprise of brief reports on club business, ride reports and details about coming events and often have a DVD of recent rides showing. All members as well as visitors are encouraged to come to the meetings and socialise with other members.
AMTRA fees comprise of a once off joining fee and a yearly subscription. The fees are very reasonable and the clubs fund raising subsidises the yearly fees in order to keep the fees down. The current fees are listed in the store on our web site. The fees include 11 copies of our magazine Amtraction either posted to you or downloaded from the web site as well as access to the members’ pages of the web site for details on the latest rides and other articles of interest.
For those of you in NSW and South Australia, AMTRA also has branches in those states.

I am thinking of joining AMTRA just need to find the time, maybe I could go to one of your open ride days and see how it go's, we need something in the north of Vic to go to as travelling down to Melbourne is to big a day out, plus riding etc,etc.

Cheers  Mick.

Your a long time dead, so get out there and enjoy yourself while you still can :-) would loved to have been able to race vintage enduro bikes in Victoria, but sadly that as yet has not happened, so many blokes would have loved to be able to race, owell shit loads of us still have the memory's of racing enduro bikes back in the late 70's and 80's, time to move on to other things I guess :-) but if racing classes for vinduro bikes start then I will dust off my bike and be out there racing my old bike as that is what it was made for ( Racing )

A great club-yes, I'm a member.They put on well organised rides that cater for all rider levels.

Here's a clip from a few years ago. The river crossing at the start is a grin (a few bike dunked)-

I've still have the 06 YZ- what a fun bike.
