Association of Recovering Motorcyclists
To .A.R.M. Intl.
The Association of Recovering Motorcyclists was founded in 1986.
The first chapter was started by Jack and Judy Jensen in LaCrosse, Wisconsin.
.A.R.M. is the world's largest group of clean and sober bikers.
We are bikers who have chosen to remain clean and sober without forsaking the lifestyle
of brotherhood in the wind. We have been able to grow through our respect for other MC's
in our areas and by respecting the individuality of our members.
We do not require members to ride a specific brand of motorcycle
nor do we ridicule the members personal choices.
We do not claim our modified lifestyle to be the only truth,
nor do we suggest that any other lifestyle is inappropriate.
We are bikers who have chosen abstinence because it is what we believe in for ourselves.
For some of us, it is the only way we can continue to survive.
The Association of Recovering Motorcyclists is not affiliated with any 12-step program.
.A.R.M. members attend these meetings and respect the traditions.
We are not bound by the tradition of anonymity.
