The United States portion was looking a bit cluttered.
I have broken it up by state to make it easier to browse.

I didn't want to over-complicate the listing process so if a club had chapters in two states, I listed it separately in each. Only one club was in that category.

If a club had chapters in three or more states, was nationwide or borderless, I listed them as Nationwide. Maybe someone could come up with a better category name.

I saved the original page in case it is judged that it would be better to go back to the nationwide alphabetical listing.

Not to speak for Jess, but this was his reply some time ago when asked if he had his own club listed:

I would guess that would be a good standard to meet before being listed on the wiki. After all, if someone looks up a club here, they should have an expectation of there being a club there.

Keep me posted. Good luck.

You might want to post a get-together in the rally forum to get some interest going. That would be a good start.

When we started out on scooters back in the day, there was no internet or nothing like that. It was just all word of mouth and there was no helmet laws or nothin of the sort, just a nice cozy parka to keep you nice and warm on those chillin nights of mayhem.

There probably are, but no member has listed them in the Wiki.

If you're looking for one, try making a post in the General Discussions Forum, and if you find one, put it on the list.

It would be appreciated.

Your post is very unlikely to be noticed in this part of the forum, as it is for discussing the content of the Wiki. Please post your question in General Discussion.

Here's some updated info on the Blue Ribbon Kings. We are no longer a Western Colorado SC. We have stretched out with members in Grand Junction, Denver, Salt Lake City, Albuquerque, and Seattle. We also recently changed our SC art to something a little more original...
