                          Chicago HQ LAMA-"Where it all began!"

The 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 lands!

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 know
 L.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?
