History of The American Legion Riders:

In the fall of 1993 in Garden City, Michigan, Chuck (Tramp) Dare and the commander of Michigan�??s American Legion Post 396, (Polka) Bill Kaledas shared an idea to start an association of motorcycle enthusiasts within The American Legion. The two Legionnaires--both long-time riders--wanted to provide an environment where post, Auxiliary and Sons of The American Legion members who shared a common love for motorcycles could come together. 

Dare and Kaledas prepared a letter to Michigan Department Adjutant Hubert Hess. In his November 19th, 1993 reply, Hess agreed with the concept and stated that it "sounds like a great idea�??let�??s work it out." In further correspondence and follow-up phone conversations, Hess gave the two riders instructions on how to manage such a program at the post level. He also provided information on how to get approval for the use of the American Legion Emblem and to get this program recognized and supported by the membership. The members of Post 396, at a regular Legion meeting, considered a resolution for a new post program to be known as the "American Legion Riders". The resolution passed, establishing the birth of the new program.

Who We Are:

The American Legion Riders are members of the American Legion who are also motorcycle enthusiasts. They can be found participating in parades, partaking in motorcycling events, and supporting the communities in which they live, work, and play. Members of the ALR come from the Legion, the Legion Auxilliary, and the Sons of the American Legion. The American Legion Riders were formed...


    ...to participate in parades and other ceremonies that are in keeping with the Aims and Purposes of the American Legion.
    ...to promote motorcycle safety programs and to provide a social atmosphere for American Legion members who share the same interest.
    ...to use our Association to promote and support programs of the American Legion.
