What we're about

Latin American Motorcycle Association (L.A.M.A.) Washington D.C. Chapter

We are a family oriented motorcycle association who love to ride and spend time with our families. LAMA currently has chapters all over the world, many of which is right here in the USA and closes enough to ride to.

On October 1, 2009 the Washington DC chapter of LAMA was born. The chapter was started with 5 members. LAMA does not distinguish between race, color, nationality, ethnic origins, religion, gender, age, social class or motorcycle brand.

History of Our Organization

Latin American Motorcycle Association (L.A.M.A) (http://www.latinbikers.com/) was founded in 1977 in Chicago. From its inception LAMA was intended as a Moto-Touring club with truly Democratic ideas. In 1999 LAMA became an International Association with chapters in Puerto Rico, Mexico, U.S.A., Cuba, Uruguay, Venezuela, Argentina, Spain & Australia. LAMA is one of the most respected clubs in the world. As a LAMA member there are doors opened to you in every city where we have chapters. We recognize our lady riders with their own DAMAS DE LAMA Patch this represents that not only are they LAMA members but that they ride their own motorcycles. LAMA members are known for riding X-treme distances, which most Bikers find way too far and others find a challenge of endurance.

Rolling to Seneca Rocks, WV


We are making a trip to Seneca Rocks. This is one of my favorite motorcycle rides. It's a very twisty route. The last time I rode to Seneca Rocks I found myself dragging knee several times on route 33. There are numerous off-camber tight turns. We will not be riding at that fast of a pace. We will take it easy in the turns. This ride is a full day ride. It's about 350 miles round trip. We can do it. We will meet at Sheetz in Haymarket. 15315 Washington St, Haymarket, VA 20169. Meetup is at 9:00 AM. Kickstands up at 9:30 AM. Please fill your gas tank before we leave. Bring snacks and water. Finally, let's have some fun.
