» What is the MSMC?
The Montgomery Street Motorcycle Club (MSMC) was founded in San Francisco in 1969. We’re proud of our members, our events, and our history.

Members are experienced, conscientious riders from the SF Bay Area. We focus on sport-touring, though members’ interests include off-road riding, long-distance rallies, adventure touring, track days, and racing. Members’ tastes tend toward European brands; many own multiple bikes. Members are active in the local motorcycle community, have prominent roles in brand-specific organizations, and have shown bikes at the Quail Gathering. Others have encyclopedic knowledge of California roads and attractions.

The Club holds at least one riding event per month ranging from half-day local rides to overnight destination rides that cover 900-1200 miles over 2-3 days to places like Pismo, Bridgeport, Weaverville, Quincy, Death Valley, and beyond.

Day rides often end with social events held at a member’s home or lunch at an interesting local venue. We have a formal holiday party each December that marks the end of the riding season and kicks off planning for the next one.

Founded by advertising and finance executives working on Montgomery Street in San Francisco, the club was known in the 1970s and 80s for its exclusivity and affluent members, business executives who insisted on luxury accommodations and lavish diversions. But riding credentials were always paramount: we famously turned down Malcolm Forbes for membership.

Today, the Club has members from diverse walks of life. Rides and events focus on camaraderie and adventure, enjoying the rugged beauty of California and our home city of San Francisco. We visit a variety of venues: rustic cabins, historical lodges, classic motor-motels…and yes, even the occasional upscale resort.

With nearly 50 years of history we’ve amassed a large collection of Club photographs, media about the Club, and a library of ride itineraries, many including GPX files. These are accessible via our dedicated website.

The MSMC is limited to 40 Active Members. Openings usually occur only when a member moves away from the Bay Area or gives up the sport.

Take a look around to get to know the Montgomery Street Motorcycle Club.
