We are the proud owners of everything vintage and/or with European influence whether its stock, modified or about to be modified . We are the riders that don't quite fit the profile of Harley bike groups. We are the "Rockers" of San Diego Cafe Racer!
SDCR is a group looking for fellow enthusiasts who own and ride vintage, cafe, street fighter, tracker or any modified bike, etc. We also require that you have a bike with an engine that is 350cc or greater in order to make sure that you can keep up with the group on most rides. If this describes you and you would like to be part of a movement San Diego where you can enjoy riding and a camaraderie with other like minded motorcycle owners... then join up!
We do not do aggressive riding and we will accommodate everyone on our rides. There will be rides suited for more and the ones for less experienced riders.
We would also like to help new members with choosing a bike and offer modification and maintenance advice. In addition to that, if someone is a new rider and needs help with riding skills, don't hesitate to ask, we will gladly help you become better rider.
SDCR embraces the diversity of modified bikes out there and the riders that they belong to. The makes that members own in our group include, but are not limited to, Triumph, Honda, Kawasaki, Suzuki, BMW, Norton, Moto Guzzi, Ducati and BSA. If you have any questions or feel like you need additional information, please email one of the organizers. Hope to see you out there!
