The more Riders we have, the stronger we are!!!

The membership requirements for the American Legion Riders are very straightforward. To become a member, you must …

  • be a current member in good standing of The American Legion, American Legion Auxiliary or Sons of the American Legion.
  • be the owner of a motorcycle and must possess a valid driver’s license in your state of residence (military equivalents acceptable as well) ~or~ must be the legal spouse of an ALR member in good standing within the Chapter of application.
  • All operators must be properly licensed and insured per state laws.
  • All members must obey motor-vehicle laws in the state in which they are operating a motorcycle or riding as a passenger.


RIDERS – National Headquarters is trying to find out how many Riders we have on a nation-wide basis.


An entry on your Legion, Auxiliary or Sons of The American Legion membership record will then to reflect ALR membership in the same way we can identify those who have held national or state offices, served on committees, and so forth. Kind of “professional development” marker.

National would like to get as much participation as possible as another way to get an idea of what the ALR population is across the country.
