Centre 16 is just one of 20 areas of the Virago Star Owners' Club and is generally known as "Solent". Our motif is the Mad Axeman and we meet monthly in Cob & Pen pub in Wallington, Hants on the first Thursday of every month (except January when it is the second Thursday of the month). Our area primarily covers Portsmouth and Southampton but extends from Worthing in the east to Ringwood in the west. We also take in the Isle of Wight to the south and north from Winchester, through Petersfield to Arundel. Officially it's Hampshire and West Sussex.
Solent's membership currently stands at 52 full national members with 4 local associate members. Having undergone many changes over the last few years, we continue to go from strength to strength with our members attending all the major rallies both at home and abroad. Whilst some of our members are in their twenties, we do have a few senior personnel in their seventies with bikes from 125s to 1800s.
