2017





Info:



The Yankee Beemers are a private social club chartered by the AMA, the MOA, and the RA. All events are open to the public. All bikes and riders are welcome. Dates and times are subject to change. These changes are posted on our web forum. Before you ride 1000 miles to an event its best to check in and verify that the details have not changed. We post changes here as soon as we can. Our events are all run by volunteers. Please pre-register for events as it helps us get the food count right. Please invite your friends to join us. Please use the online PayPal system if you can.

Please mail checks to:
Yankee Beemers
P.O Box 2151 Fitchburg, MA 01420. 

Consider joining the club. The funds go directly to operating the events. We are a non-profit motorcycle club. Unlike other clubs that have only a Facebook page, or just get together at the local bar, we put on a lot of great events that require us to pay up front. Your membership dues help keep the campfires burning. Volunteering at events is a great way to make new friends and help the club offer more to our members.

We have monthly breakfasts at the Willowbrook restaurant. They are usually, but not always the 3rd Sunday of the Month at 8am. All bikes are welcome. Sometimes there are 75 bikes in the parking lot at 7am, so get there early. We are always looking for people to run informal rides to eat, tech days, or give a talk at the breakfast meeting about something cool. Please come say hello.
