On January 27, 1986, leaders of various motorcycle groups from across America met in Las Vegas to discuss a "coming together" and the overwhelming need for a national voice to protect our lifestyle and right to ride. The National Coalition of Motorcyclists (NCOM) was born.
NCOM is not another association, but rather a bringing together of existing motorcycle groups for the purpose of mutual exchange of information, legislative strategy and the combined strength to fight all that is adverse to the freedom of the road.
NCOM has grown to over 2,000 member organizations representing hundreds of thousands of motorcyclists nationwide.
The goal and purpose of NCOM is to assist all motorcycle organizations and individual riders with legal, legislative and other motorcycling issues. The Coalition will not dictate to any organization, but will be available to assist NCOM member groups through such FREE services as legislative assistance, nationwide information network, public awareness programs, safety projects, loan program, biker anti-discrimination legal and legislative assistance, etc.
NCOM is managed by bikers for bikers. Through its Board of Advisors comprised of motorcyclists' rights leaders representing 11 regions in North America, and a Legislative Task Force that includes four elected state legislators and one United States Senator plus many other experienced legislative advocates from across the country, we have the talent and expertise to serve the motorcycling community whenever called upon to do so.
Each NCOM member group can have one representative on the National Council, a nationwide communications network to facilitate the flow of information from and to NCOM.
Unlike other associations, NCOM is not supported by membership dues and does not solicit funds from member groups or individuals. All operating costs are paid through the Aid to Injured Motorcyclists (A.I.M.) nationwide network of attorneys who are the sole financial support for NCOM. A.I.M. attorneys contribute a significant portion of their legal fees from motorcycle accidents back into motorcycling by providing all the funding for NCOM...a way of recycling money from motorcycling back into motorcycling!
All motorcycle groups are invited to join the National Coalition of Motorcyclists regardless of what they ride, the patch they wear or the motorcyclists' rights organization they belong to.
If your club or organization is interested in joining NCOM call 1-(800)-525-5355 for further information or join by email.
When Richard Lester was attending law school, he was determined to do some good, to help a group of people who were being discriminated against and to make changes. He soon joined bikers’ rights activists to push for national legislation changes while raising public awareness to undo false stereotypes. Since the Law Offices of Richard M. Lester was started, we have also started the AIM program and financed the National Coalition of Motorcyclists (NCOM). These organizations include millions of bikers from across the U.S. and Canada.
Lester and his associates are proud to be attorneys who ride. Our biker-oriented practice works to spread knowledge so that bikers can protect their rights, and we have significant experience asserting our clients’ rights when they have been injured in a motorcycle accident.
