About the MTA

riderEstablished in 1984, the MTA has a long history of supporting our riders through the many local chapters across the United States and Canada as well as our members in other countries around the world.

We are a viable alternative to the typical motorcycle owners clubs with over 25 years of experience, beginning with our past heritage and experience as the Venture Touring Society (the original owners group for the Yamaha Venture from 1983 to 1993). During this period we have gone through several phases of operation to get to where we are today: a true “Members Organization”, dedicated to the premise that it doesn’t matter what you ride, just as long as you ride and are willing to accept and return friendship.

Please take the time to explore our site and all that our club has to offer. Check out the Chapter Listing to see if there is a chapter in your area, if not, you may want to consider starting one. It’s easy to do and we are here to help you in any way that we can. Join in some lively chat in the Forums. Check out the Classified Ads.
