ORRA was formed in 1980 in an effort to co-ordinate the activities of motorcycle clubs throughout the province, and to represent these clubs with a united voice to all legislative bodies and manufacturers on issues affecting the motorcycle community. Although concerned with providing reasonably priced, annual liability insurance for Members and their events, and a comprehensive calendar of Members road riding events and activities, the Association’s objectives are not confined to any single aspect of motorcycling. ORRA provides a forum for the exchange of information affecting motorcyclists such as new or pending legislation, insurance rates, public relations and awareness, manufacturer recalls, rider training, and community involvement of our Member clubs. ORRA was not formed to duplicate the efforts of other groups and has thus far been relatively
successful in filling a gap that previously existed for Ontario’s road riders.
Presently membership consists of a wide variety of Ontario clubs and associations. There are 25 clubs registered with over 800 total members represented and the number continues to grow. Each club, or chapter of a club, has an official ORRA representative who can attend the meetings and vote on motions and proposals on behalf of the Member club. Please note that any numbers of a Member club’s membership are welcome to attend the meetings and participate in the discussions but they may not vote on motions and proposals. ORRA meets through-out the province at its May, September, and November meetings, and at the Motorcycle Shows held in January and April at the International Centre, Mississauga. ORRA would like to invite you to take an ACTIVE part in this Association for many reasons: ·
- Your club will benefit by a closer association with other Member clubs and also have a voice in helping form the direction ORRA will take in the future on any issues affecting the motorcycling community
- ORRA offers inexpensive, general liability event insurance to Member clubs through a third party
- ORRA offers an annual Spring tune-up refresher course for all Members.
- ORRA actively participates with the Motorcycle Confederation of Canada on issues affecting all of us.
- ORRA will benefit by the increase in numbers, which will give us a much louder and more respected voice in all the decision making processes regarding motorcyclist in this province.
