Membership Details:
LA Clan membership requirements exceed the minimum requirements established by BIR Worldwide. Once you submit an application for membership, you may be invited to attend one or more meetings/rides/events. After you have joined us for at least one meeting and ride, the club may invite you to become a “Candidate” for membership for a period of at least 3 months. If you demonstrate strong interest in membership by participating actively in our rides and events, the club may invite you to become a “Prospect” for membership, for a period of 6 additional months, during which you will be introduced to the worldwide club membership. If you fail to demonstrate strong interest by actively participating in rides and events, the club may remove you from the membership process at any time. After the 5th month of your Prospect period, you must seek out two sponsors to vouch for you for membership prior to the end of the 6th month. Once you are vouched, the LA Clan will vote to either accept or reject your membership.

Qualifying Bikes:
All new Triumph motorcycles that come under the 'classic' range except for the cruisers (Speedmaster, America and Rocket III), all Norton America produced motorcycles, Royal Enfield motorcycles, CNW Norton produced motorcycles and most classic and retro classic Brit bikes produced by any of the manufacturers listed below. If your motorcycle falls outside of this description, you are not eligible for BIR membership. If you wish to discuss compliance of other models not mentioned here, please
