Photo Gallery of recent KCVJMC events:
Our KCVJMC group meets on the last Sunday of every month (unless there is a holiday or other special event on that day). Actual dates are posted on the main page of this site. You can also go to the Yahoo Group "KCVJMC" for up to date information. We sponsor two main events yearly. They are the "First Sunday" Cruise at the first of May, and the "All Japanese" show held the first weekend after July 4th. We also have other events throughout the year, but those are scheduled as the year progresses. We are hoping to have a yearly "swap meet" promoting parts for Japanese motorcycles at some point in the future. The KCVJMC group was preceeded by the North Kansas City Motorcycle Association which was an association of four local motorcycle riding groups. From the NKCMA the Honda Enthusiasts was started as well as the VCME (Vintage & Custom Motorcycle Enthusiasts). The Midwest Cruisers were a partner to the Honda Enthusiast group and originated because many of the riders did not ride Honda's and they didn't want to say they were members of the Honda Enthusiasts group! All of these groups were (except the VCME) were riding groups. The KCVJMC group is dedicated to the promotion of the nationally based Vintage Japanese Motorcycle Club and a place for those interested in the history, preservation, and showing of vintage Japanese motorcycles. Please feel free to join us.
