Yamaha introduced a full-size touring bike named Venture Royale in 1983. In early
1984 a group of people from the Denver area who purchased the Venture Royales decided to form a motorcycle club.
Ten members owning motorcycles established the club in 1984. Officers were elected and the bylaws were established.
This set up a network of like-minded motorcycle enthusiasts to get together and share information, socialize and
take motorcycle tours.
Yamaha quit making the Venture Royale, members have purchased other
makes of touring, sport touring and cruiser motorcycles. The club has
grown and the diversity of models of motorcycles owned by members has
increased. While some club members still own Venture Royales, we have
Goldwings, Harley Davidsons, BMWs, Valkyries, Triumphs, Voyagers, and
Royal Stars. You will also see trikes, Spyders and sidecars joining our
