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 Auxiliary, and the Sons of the American Legion. The American Legion Riders was formed for the following reasons:

• 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 Interests
• To Use Our Association to Promote and Support Programs of the American Legion

Together, members of The American Legion, The American Legion Auxiliary, and the Sons of The American Legion make up what is known as The Legion Family.
