The Loonie-Tic BMW Riders of Quinte West is a local BMW Motorcycle Club, BMW MOA Chartered Club #292, BMW RA Chartered Club # 316. The club is located in Cobourg, Ontario on the shores of Lake Ontario.
The Loonie-Tic BMW Riders emerged from the 2002 BMW MOA International Rally held in Trenton, Ontario. This new club was created to serve BMW riders in southeastern Ontario.
The club sponsors a rally each summer at Centennial Park in Trenton, a relaxing location featuring not only excellent camping facilities but also nearby accomodations and restaurants. The 2016 edition will be known as the Return to Trenton Rally 14, and it will take place this year from August 19 – 21. Check out the official notice elsewhere on this site !
The leadership of the club comes from the membership. Members nominate and elect managing officers each year and have a say in every facet of club business and activities. The club’s year runs from Nov 1 to Oct 31, with elections in October. There is a quarterly newsletter available to all club members with the latest ride stories, photos, and a schedule of upcoming events.
The monthly social meeting is a luncheon which takes place usually on the third Sunday of each month at various locations in the area. The club executive meets monthly as well, with any member invited to attend. There are several group rides each year and many members meet informally for day trips, weekend excursions, and rides to rallies.
