Welcome to the website of the founding LAMA Chapter
Chicago HQ LAMA-"Where it all began!"
Latin American Motorcycle Association (L.A.M.A) was founded in 1977 in
Chicago’s notorious Humboldt Park neighborhood. From it’s inception
L.A.M.A. was intended as a Moto-Touring club with truly Democratic
ideas. The lone chapter until the second chapter was started in Miami in
1995, L.A.M.A became a National Association when the first national
president was elected in 1996.
In 1999 LAMA became an International Association with chapters in Puerto
Rico, Mexico, U.S.A. & Cuba. Presently L.A.M.A. has additional
chapters in Colombia, Ecuador, Uruguay, Venezuela, Argentina, Spain, Germany, France,Philippines, & Australia and many more countries. The number of chapters has grown to over 160 worldwide! LAMA
was intended as the club of the 21st century and is a work in progress,
to be continued by the flow and ideas of new members in near and far off
L.A.M.A is a club without borders. We have evolved into an
“International Humanist Association”. We accept working people from all
walks of life regardless of nationality, race, color, religion, social
class, gender, age, brand of motorcycle, etc. We believe that it is more
important to be human than to be Latin, Asian, black, white, etc!
L.A.M.A. is one of the most respected clubs in the world.As a L.A.M.A. member there are doors opened to you in every city where we have chapters. To knowL.A.M.A. is to visit the other chapters, especially chapters in other nations.
L.A.M.A. is recognized as one of the most active
long distance riding clubs in the world. Our women (DAMAS DE LAMA)
accompany us on their own motorcycles, riding X-treme distances, which
most bikers find way too far and others find a challenge of endurance.
WELCOME TO L.A.M.A.! DO YOU HAVE WHAT IT TAKES TO BE PART OF ONE OF THE BEST CLUBS IN THE WORLD?
