Welcome to the official website of the 'Essex Crusaders' Centre 19 of the VSOC (Virago Star Owners Club).

If you live in Essex and ride a Yamaha cruiser then we are the club for you, associate non-Yamaha cruisers also welcome.  All age groups, guys and gals, we meet regularly for rideouts (see rideout list).

Our usual place for impromptu rideouts on Sundays is at the Boreham Services just off the A12, near Chelmsford, ready to leave at 10.30am 3rd Dec - 4th March, and at 10.00am all other  months.

Contact Centre Reps for more info.
