Latin American Motorcycle Association
How did LAMA get Started?
The Latin American Motorcycle Association (L.A.M.A) was founded in 1977 in Chicago. From its inception, L.A.M.A. was intended as a moto-touring club with truly Democratic ideas. A single chapter existed for many years, until the first local chapter was founded in Miami in 1995. L.A.M.A. became a National Association when the first national president was elected in 1996. In 1999 L.A.M.A. became an International Association with chapters in Puerto Rico, Mexico, U.S.A. and Cuba. Presently L.A.M.A. has additional chapters in Uruguay, Venezuela, Argentina, Spain and Australia. L.A.M.A. was created as the club of the 21st century and is a work in progress, to be continued by the flow and ideas of new members in near and far off lands!

LAMA Tampa History
In 2005, Chapter Founder Johnny Urrutia's cousin Eduardo, who was the president of the Florida City chapter, introduced Johnny to L.A.M.A. founder Mario Nieves at the annual party hosted by the L.A.M.A. Orlando Chapter, which is held every March in tandem with Daytona Bike Week. Inspired by what Mario had created and motivated by the great people he met that day, Johnny did not waste any time in forming the Tampa Chapter. L.A.M.A. Tampa today includes members from all walks of life and continues to grow.
Now in its 16th year, L.A.M.A. Tampa serves the community in which it resides by establishing collaborations with the U.S. Marines Toys for Tots, Wreaths Across America, our very own Annual Heroes Event, and many other causes which we carry near and dear to our hearts.
L.A.M.A. Tampa is not just another group of bikers. We are a BROTHERHOOD that is an integral part of the community we live in, work in, and love.
