American Motorcyclist Association, as much as I like how they support motorcycling as a whole, I no longer support the AMA.  When Rob Dingman, AMA President and CEO, decided that one wealthy lawyer and his racing team was more important then the 6,000+ members of AHRMA who love vintage bikes, it was time to cut up the card after 20 years of membership since 1973.

Florida Vintage Motocross - A great bunch to ride with!

Potomac Vintage Riders - The club behind the North-Atlantic regional MX and XC events along with vintage Trials & Road activites.

ACR  American Classic Racing - Nice club with many members in the NE.
