Welcome to the home of the Potomac Vintage Riders



The Potomac Vintage Riders motorcycle club was formed in the fall of 1999 by a group of local enthusiasts in the Washington, DC area. We are an AMA sanctioned and AHRMA affiliated motorcycle club.


PVR is a versatile group with its members involved in all forms of vintage motorcycling, including motocross, cross-country, dirt track, observed trials, road-race or just-for- fun street riding. The club annually sponsors multiple vintage events ; PVR is the sponsor of the AHRMA North Atlantic vintage motocross and cross country series. The club also promotes trials events in the Mid-Atlantic Trials series and annually sponsors a road ride through the Virginia countryside. PVR also is the sponsor of a January vintage motorcycle swap meet in York, PA, one of the largest indoor events of its kind. Its membership roster extends throughout the Mid-Atlantic and Northeast. PVR meets monthly for business and socializing, alternating between Maryland and Virginia with occasional social events in neighboring states. New members always welcome.



2014 PVR Road Ride, Club Picnic and Ironman event

Mark Sunday, September 28th on your calendars now!

For 2014, we will be combining our annual Road ride and Ironman events to coincide with the PVR club picnic. The Road ride is open to all riders on vintage bikes and will begin in the NOVA/DC area and wander through the picturesque Potomac countryside and end up at Tomahawk MX Park in West Virginia.  At the same time, vintage off road riders will be assembling and participating in the annual Ironman event.   This will allow members from all disciplines to get together for an early fall afternoon and enjoy a brew and barbeque feast hosted by Bill and Eva for the PVR Club Picnic.

We have had several requests to move this event to a Sunday so, this years event will be held on Sunday, September 28th at Tomahawk MX Park in Hedgeville, WV

More details to follow from Road ride chair, Mike Perry and Ironman chair, Brian O’Connor.

Re-Cap: Annual Una-Miller Ride at Wayne Miller’s House

On October 13, 2012 Wayne Miller hosted a group of PVR members and their families for the annual Una-Miller ride. Members wound down the 2012 riding season with laps on Waynes vintage friendly grass track.

Members brought out a wide variety of machinery: everything from Can-Ams to restored elsinores, Ducatis and Triumphs.

Once riders had their fill of riding, Wayne fired up the grill and cooked up food for the group.

Buzzy took some photos of the group and their machinery:
