Next Meeting

Tuesday September 26th 2023 7:30pm 

PLEASE NOTE – The location of this meeting may change, member’s please watch for an email with the details. 

Guests – Still meet at Jim’s Vintage Garages 5353 Portage Ave, Headingley, MB at 7pm.  Someone from the club will be there to meet you.

The club is still looking for a Property Manager.  The Property Manager stores some of the supplies used for the Bision Rally and other events.  This takes about a 4’x6′ area in your shed, shop, or garage.

Rust and Restoration presentations will once again be part of the monthly meeting.  If you have a restoration or an interesting story you’d like to share please let us know.


2023 Bison Rally = June 30 – July 2

A great time was had by all that attended.  Weather was perfect with just a light shower Sunday morning.  We had a huge turnout of bikes and spectators for the Show & Shine and and ran out of hamburger patties for the fundraiser BBQ lunch.  The Saturday dinner was really close to the hall’s capacity, I believe we had about 98 people seated for dinner.

Thanks to all the volunteers that made this happen.  This one will be hard to top!

A full recap is on the past rally’s page.

AMCM Mileage Challenge
The 2022 Ray Houde Mileage Challenge was won this year by Tiffany who put an amazing amount of miles onto her vintage Honda Goldwing. She has selected Irene (Impie) Robins as the 2023 honouree.  Watch for an article in the December Newsletter.


The Tiny Robins Centennial Trophy

The newly restored Tiny Robins Centennial Trophy is on display at Jim’s Vintages Garages thanks to the vision and craftsmanship of Della and Jim Beattie. The Tiny Robins Trophy will feature the names of all the AMCM Presidents as well as winners of the Heritage Classic TT. Ralph Gibbs was the winner of this new event in it’s inaugural year (2021) and he now shares a row with other past MMC 50 lap winners from the 70’s.
Della and Jim are working out the plans to replicate numerous MMC endurance rides from the 60’s to be used in future years.  In the Heritage TT ride the TT stands for timed trials; it is not a test of speed it’s about arriving at predetermined checkpoints on time and not getting lost.  Your progress is tracked with time stamped photos. If you get your name on this trophy you will have earned it, just ask Ralph Gibbs!


The Dunlop Trophy 

The Dunlop Trophy will soon be on display at Jim’s Vintage Garage and museum.
Thanks again to all involved for the great work done restoring this Manitoban motorsport treasure that dates way back to 1911.



Ray Houde  

We honour a true friend and lifelong motorcyclist who has completed life’s journey.

Ray Houde passed away on Wednesday, January 26th.  He was a long-time member of the Manitoba Motorcycle Club, actively participating in both races and riding events.  Gregarious by nature, his nickname was ‘Gabby’ and he was always there to lend a hand, or shoot the breeze.  Ray was also an original member of the Antique Motorcycle Club, and valued the friendship and activities that this provided.  A devoted Harley rider, his concession to aging was to trade in two wheels for three, so he could remain on the road.

July 12, 1949 ~ July 19, 2019 Dianne Best passed away peacefully to the sound of music on Friday, July 19, 2019 at the age of 70, at Ste. Anne Hospital, Manitoba. Dianne will be greatly missed by her family and friends. Dianne was a unique and special woman that lived life to the fullest; who wanted to experience it all. The family would like to thank the staff at Ste. Anne Hospital for the care and compassion they gave to Dianne. A Celebration of Life will be held on Friday, July 26 at 1:00 p.m. at Sobering Funeral Chapel, 1035 Park Ave. E., Beausejour, MB. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Dianne’s memory to Guardians of the Children Canada, 917 Calrossie Blvd, Winnipeg, MB R3T 0W9.

Update – About fifteen AMCM members attended Diane’s funeral. Her best friend Arlene told numerous stories that gave us an insight into her, she was truly an amazing person. Did you know she had her pilots license and restored a crashed plane, and that she placed in a figure skating competition when she was 50. She will be missed.


Great Weather, Great Ride and Great Hosts for a BBQ at their place in Winnipeg Beach
