About Us

The Veterans of Foreign Wars riding group is a motorcycle group made up of VFW and VFW Auxiliary members in good standing. We are a group within the VFW that enjoys the pastime of motorcycles, and we are officially a part of the VFW.

We are a family oriented group. We are pro military. Distinction of class, nationality, or gender will not be recognized nor tolerated by our organization. Our members act in good faith with other members and uphold the traditions of the Veterans of Foreign Wars.

Our members come from all walks of life, and have served honorably in the Armed Forces of the United States in times of conflicts or their family members. We ride all types of motorcycles, both foreign and/or domestic.
