What is the Moto Giro Ovest?

MGO 2014 and 2015

Going to take a break from the MGO this year (2014).  Renato hasn’t been well so will give it a miss.  

2015 will be a different story, stay tuned.  Some have asked that the base be a little closer to Perth so will certainly look into that.  Perhaps few local vineyards in the Swan Valley and a ride or two to Toodyay and York?


Martin & Ron, having ridden in the Milan – Taranto rally in Italy several times (well Ron has several times, Martin just once) thought it would be great to have something similar in Western Australia but, at this stage, not as competitive.  The ride was initially invite only to anyone that wanted to ride an Italian two wheeled vehicle, be it scooter or motorbike.  It was a casual ride down south for no other reason but to go on an extended ride with like minded friends and to sample the food (and wine) of the south west region in Western Australia.

MGO 2013

After the success of last years run we thought we should hold the run again.  This time the invitation was extended to more like minded folk in an effort to introduce some motorbikes to the run.

This year Paul, Lex and Kevin all on Ducati’s joined most of last years crew in late March of 2013.  This year we were based at Cullen Wines and would do short runs each day out and back.

These are the individuals that went on the 2013 event

Thanks Lex for some of the pics

MGO 2012

In May a hand full of friends took off into the south of Western Australia.  All riding 1960s vintage Lambretta scooters.

For 2012 the overnight stops were:-

  • Quindanning
  • Pemberton
  • Margaret River
  • Boyunup
  • Rockingham

There will be about 5 riders – all on Lambretta scooters and two in the van for support and recovery.

These are the individuals that went on the 2012 event.
