The American Legion Riders…
The American Legion Riders are members of the American Legion who are also motorcycle enthusiasts. We can be found participating in parades, partaking in motorcycling events, and supporting the communities in which we live, work, and play. Members of the ALR come from the Legion, the Legion Auxiliary, and the Sons of the American Legion.
The American Legion Riders were formed…
…to participate in parades and other ceremonies that are in keeping with the Aims and Purposes of the American Legion.
…to promote motorcycle safety programs and to provide a social atmosphere for American Legion members who share the same interest.
…to use our Association to promote and support programs of the American Legion.
The American Legion Riders is not a M/C, and does not practice M/C rules or regulations. The American Legion Riders is family-oriented, just as is its parent organization: the American Legion.
Motorcycle Flag Etiquette:
US Flag Only
If only the US Flag is on your bike, it should either be at the center, or to its “marching right” – on the right side of the motorcycle to the rider’s perspective when facing forward.
US Flag And One Other Flag Of Any Type
If the US Flag is on your bike with another, it should be to its “marching right” – on the right side of the motorcycle to the rider’s perspective. If the other flag is that of another nation, it should be the same size and at the same height of the US Flag – NO flag should ever be displayed higher than the US Flag.
US Flag And More Than One Other Non-National Flag
If the US Flag is on your bike with several other non-national flags (POW/MIA, ALR, Eagles, Service Banners, etc.), it should be at center and higher than any of the other flags.
US Flag And More Than One Flag Including Those Of Other Nations
If the US Flag is displayed on your bike with those of any other nation, the flags should be same size and at the same height, with the US Flag to marching right (right side of the vehicle), and others arranged in alphabetical order to the left. Other flags should be arranged in order of decreasing importance – Nations first, states (in order of admittance) and territories second, military third (in order of establishment), and then any others. Again, no flag should fly higher than the US Flag, but the US Flag should be no higher than that of any other nations displayed.
It’s argued that, since the small bike flags we use are all but invisible from the front (when mounted on the rear), the concept of “Flag’s own right” should be used with the vantage from the rear of the bike. (This would place the Flag on the on left-hand, rear of your bike). This concept, unfortunately, overlooks a more applicable concept.
If you equate the motion of your bike with marching, and you equate traffic with a procession, another portion of the Flag Code becomes the obvious choice for display of the Flag alone, or
