If you are passionate about bike-riding, want to make some enthusiastic friends and go on riding trips during the weekends, joining a motor club could be something you want to consider.
As an avid bike-rider, you must have planned to join a local motorcycle club, but have had some hesitations. You might be apprehensive about how being a motor club member affects your life, the commitment level required, as well as how others might look at you.
On top of that, most of these motorcycle clubs in Singapore are quite exclusive and have little publicity, so you might not know what they do and how to join one. If you’ve always been curious and would like to connect with like-minded motorcyclists, read on to find out which ones you can join and the type of activities/events they hold!

It is always nice to be a part of something that excites you, challenges you and engages you with a thriving community. Joining a motorcycle club can be especially cool if you enjoy great company and are looking to do some longer rides to other countries.
Before you go on your rides, remember to check that your motorcycle insurance covers the destinations you are travelling to. DirectAsia’s motorcycle insurance provides you with coverage when your motorcycle is crossing the straits between Singapore and Tanjong Belungkor, Johor and when you cross the straits between West Malaysia and the Malaysian islands offshore of West Malaysia. These destinations are also common areas where club rides are organised.
