  • Sport Bikes

    Club Description:  BUFF Sport Bikes is about focusing on how typical sport bike riders ride. We encourage safe riding but also challenge our abilities as riders to promote good habits and motorcycle confidence. The idea is to bring a bunch of people who just love to ride together. Without the pressure of your typical motorcycle club. Not to bring down clubs, they have their attractions. But the idea is to just get together and have fun. Enjoy the ride, enjoy the turns, and just be a bunch of fanatics who casually get together for rides. Regardless if you ride a Ducati or a Grom, as long as you love the open road or the feel of gliding smoothly through a corner, we will ride with you.
