Welcome to the web-site of 18Wheels Motorcycle Association
HOME OF THE AMERICAN TRUCKER
Home To The Steel Horse Cowboys and the Steel Horse Cowgirls
The life and spirit of today's trucker mirrors that of the old west cowboys and cowgirls so similar that the two can be divided by evolution and progress alone. Just as the early cowpokes and wranglers were determined to drive their products to market from one town to another across the vast countryside. So is today's trucker motivated to drive their products across the same backgrounds as their counterpart, from the small towns, to the big cities, from across town to cross country. The stars and prairies have remained the same but these lone drifters have evolved into asphalt cowboys & gear jammers. Not every one is able to call the open road their work place and their playground. But we can and we do! We're the Steel Horse Cowboys and Cowgirls of 18WheelsMA and we play on the same roads where we work. We're dedicated to the trucking industry and to all those hands that spend their days and nights behind the wheel in a love hate relationship with, not just a job, but a way of life. We're law abiding and have members from every walk of life; from a tractor to a one ton. We are AMERICAN TRUCKERS.
