(IV.) A little about who we are:

The genuine motorcycle enthusiast can appreciate nearly all motorcycle types, brands, and their individual unique developments.  The "Japanese Motorcycle Enthusiasts" is such a group (we are KCVJMC).  We appreciate the history, development, innovation, and variety that the Asian manufacturers have given to the field of motorcycle development.  We in no way want to diminish the value or importance of motorcycles from the US other countries!  After saying this, the Japanese motorcycle has had a huge influence on the modern history of our sport.  In the areas of reliability, creative design, sales volume, the positive social acceptance of the motorcycle, and the domination of many race categories, the asian motorcycle has had a significant and undeniable influence.  In fact, the American motorcycle had to improve it's own designs in order to be competitive with the Asian bikes!  The Japanese motorcycle also brought millions of people to the sport!  Please join us in recognizing the importance of the Japanese motorcycle by participating in the Kansas City Chapter of VJMC.
