In the Early 1940’s the York Motorcycle Club was known as the Motor Squadron Motorcycle Club. In 1948 the name was changed to the York Motorcycle Club and became one of the early pioneer members of the AMA, holding charter number 107. Early Business meetings reflect similar goals of what the club still has today. Over the years, the club held AMA sanctioned events such as flat track races which were held from 1959 to 1994 at the York Fair Grounds. The club also held poker runs along with many different types of charity events.
About the motorcycle on the pole... I know it’s a Harley but we're not strictly a Harley club we have all brands of bikes, it’s not what you ride as long as you ride. The club has given out an award over the years to a member who rides 10,000 miles or more a year. In the past, we have had members who have ridden over 40,000 miles in a year more than once. We have our own motto Ride To Eat And Eat To Ride like a lot of other clubs. One of the York Motorcycle Clubs goals is to interact and help support other clubs by attending their poker runs and different types of events.
