Welcome to the MATES Motorcycle Club

What is M.A.T.E.S ?  Motorcycle and Touring Enthusiasts Southland

Welcome to you from the Country Music Capital of NZ!  Mates Motorcycle Club is based in Gore, the heart of Southland.  We are home to the Mighty Mataura River and we’re the Brown Trout Capital of the World!

We hold our well known Mates Mayhem rally in Waimumu every year.  Our events are always well run, well supported and a lot of fun.
Please note that we not be having a 2017 Rally as we have changed dates to hopefully get more suitable weather!

Date set for 16-18th March 2018

Good Times Guaranteed !!

We meet regularly and get out on our bikes for club rides monthly when the weather is good!
