The VSOC

The VSOC is dedicated to the promotion and protection of Yamaha XV, Star, Stryker, Raider and Bolt Custom motorcycles, its owners and riders. We have an established network of nineteen regional centres across the UK. We are recognised by Yamaha Motor Europe N.V., branch UK (YMUK) and supported nationally by many Yamaha dealers. We are affiliated with the British Motorcyclists Federation (BMF) and Motorcycle Action Group (MAG).

The club provides contact with almost 1000 other owner members in the UK for the exchange of information and advice on matters ranging from insurance to touring. We also have an active custom scene with many qualifying bikes being extensively customized by their owners in all styles and genres including custom paint designs and after-market parts and lighting. Members are kept up to date on club activities, national news and regional events by our magazine “Clatter” and network of regional newsletters. Four annual rallies and other events are organised at various locations across the UK. The emphasis of all our gatherings is friendly camaraderie and enjoyment regardless of age or gender.

The UK VSOC partners with the Yamaha Custom Club based in countries such as Belgium, Denmark, Finland, Germany, Holland, Norway and Sweden Every year one European country hosts an International rally which provides an excellent opportunity to ride in larger groups and socialise abroad with our European partner clubs. 

We sincerely hope that, when you are ready to show off your new ride and meet others with similar bikes who share the same passion for riding custom motorcycles, you will get in touch. We very much look forward to meeting you.

Great Rideouts
