The Northwest Iowa chapter of the American Legion Riders (NWIAALR), based out of
American Legion's Wasmer Post 241 in LeMars, Iowa, is one of Iowa's fastest growing chapters with right around 140 members to date.
To quote the national American Legion Riders (ALR) web site: "The ALR 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 Auxiliary, and the Sons of the American Legion. The ALR was 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, and to promote and support programs of the American Legion. The ALR is not a motorcycle club, and does not practice M/C rules or regulations. The ALR is family-oriented, just as is its parent organization, the American Legion."
