The Scottish Motorcycle Club is an independent and non-profit-making club open to all who are interested in riding motorcycles responsibly for fun and pleasure in the company of other members.

As affiliated members of the British Motorcyclists Federation (BMF) we receive discounts from several national dealers and businesses. Our frequently updated website has a members' area with news, details of club runs, photo gallery, links and a forum where you can discuss all sorts of things.

Our Club Night Meetings are normally held on the second Wednesday of every month at the Black Bitch Tavern, 14 West Port, Linlithgow EH49 7AZ at 8:00pm, at which all members are encouraged to contribute their ideas, suggestions and experience. There is always plenty of time for informal discussions so come along to the next one for your regular fix of motorcycle-related banter and join in all the fun. All will find a warm welcome - old, new or prospective members.

Runs via intriguing routes to places of interest are organised, mainly from March to October but also throughout the year. Most are Sunday runs, some are Saturday runs and some are half-day runs. There is usually a mid-week chip shop run each month during the summer. There are also a few weekend and/or foreign trips, depending on support. The club issues a calendar with details of all the runs so you can plan well in advance.

We make a point of encouraging prospective members to join us on a 'trial run', with no obligation or pressure to join the club. You will be made very welcome and will see at first hand how we organise our runs. We use a system which ensures no one gets lost or left behind!

The club recognises that not all members are able to attend all meetings, so a newsletter with news of members, events and activities is emailed to members and posted on the website.

The club is managed on behalf of members by a Committee consisting of a Chairperson, Editor, Events Co-ordinator, Membership Secretary, Meetings Secretary, Treasurer, Merchandising Officer and WebMaster who are elected by a ballot of members (present or postal) at the AGM held in the first quarter of each year.
