Hello there all our Fantastic readers! While watching the news and following our nation’s great watchdog groups, I felt a need to put this information out to the public. With all the bad, false information the media loves to push, I wanted to fight back by educating and publishing the good and tireless efforts of America’s Biker Community.

   The following is a very short list of some of the amazing Biker Groups and Clubs that America would suffer if ever lost. When I started to research the charities and causes that bikers support, I was amazed myself, and I have been with the biker community for 40 years. Of course, the public knows all about the toy runs, but I doubt the average American citizen even has a clue how bikers live the lifestyle of tirelessly helping and giving back to fellow Americans and their own communities.

   “TOY RIDES” – Most every club across America does some sort of toy drive for Christmas. This isn’t just bringing a Barbie or toy truck to the children. Clubs ride with other clubs to bring Christmas to orphanages, St Jude Children’s Hospital, the Shriners Hospital for Children, those in need in their own communities, etc. The list goes on and on. One group alone collected over one million dollars and a 5-ton truckload of toys for the Salvation Army.

   “BACA” – Bikers Against Child Abuse.

   This is an international non-profit group that provides aid, comfort, safety, and support for children that have been sexually, physically, and emotionally abused.


   Holds multiple fundraisers each year


   Distinguished Gentlemen’s Ride in 92 countries, 582 cities, and 94,000 riders each year. This is to raise awareness for men’s health and have raised over 5 million dollars toward men’s health programs.


   Over 400,000 motorcycles have risen from California to Washington D. C. each year to raise public awareness of service members still listed as prisoners of war or missing in action from every military conflict.


   This is a series of charity rides in 37 cities around the US benefiting the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation. This ride helps find grants for medical research as well as support programs for the affected families.


   This is a ride that goes to memorials, monuments, and other sites that honor veterans.


   Last year alone this ride raised over 1.7 million dollars for children with chronic illnesses. This will be their 26th fantastic year and have raised over 19 million dollars to date. This ride is co-founded by Kyle Petty and his family in honor of his son, Adam.

   “I always say the best way to see the country is from the seat of a motorcycle. The sights, the smells, the colors, are more brilliant and everything you see comes alive when you ride.”
– Kyle Petty –


   This ride starts at the Black Hills Harley Davidson in Rapid City and goes to the Sturgis “Buffalo Chip.” The funds raised support South Dakota Special Olympics, Rapid City Flame, All Kids Bike, and the Nascar Foundation charities.


   This group is focused on eradicating animal cruelty and abuse.


   “Do good in the hood through community service such as feeding the homeless, awarding scholarships for graduating high school seniors, and riding our motorcycles in support of organizations such as the Make a Wish Foundation.”

   “DIERKS BENTLEY” of country music fame has raised over 3 million dollars in 10 years of charity rides with the “Miles and Music” Run.

   Thousands of rides to help support firemen and their families.

   Thousands of rides to help support fallen police officers’ families.

   Many volunteers for “Habitat for Humanity”, Bike Clubs / Groups empower women to be strong.


   Emphasize community service.

   Many clubs hold rides to support “The Ronald McDonald House.”

   Below are some of our local clubs and biker charity groups around Texas. This is only a minimal amount as there are thousands more, If I listed them all our paper would look like the New York City phone book.


   This great group supports mainly the “Combat Marine Outdoors”, But visits all bases, hospitals, etc. The combat marine outdoors operates all over the country. Approximately 600 vets a year benefit from this project. Veterans are taken to hunting/fishing trips, tubing, kayaking, ball games, and dinners, at no expense to them. All plane tickets, hotels, and meals are taken care of.

   8 – 10 events each month and 55 plus vets each month in 20 – 25 states get to benefit from this. Their yearly average expense for this is around $600,000.

   “The Leathernecks” also adopt families for Thanksgiving and children for Christmas.


   This club supports “Vets Helping Vets” and the “Regroup Foundation.”They also support the “Wreaths Across America” program. Each December on Wreaths Across America Day, Their mission to remember, honor, and teach is carried out by coordinating wreath-laying ceremonies at Arlington National Cemetary, as well as at more than 2,100 additional locations in all 50 states, at sea, and abroad.

   Last year, and most likely this year too, the Brothers in Arms escorted delivery of the wreaths at Fort Sam Houston. They were the 1st to put wreaths on the tombstones.

   This club also supports taking homeless vets off the street and teaching them a trade. Last Christmas they supported 32 needy families. They also support “Homes For Our Troops” which builds custom homes for their specific disability in their preferred area.


   This club has been dedicated to supporting men and women in uniform. 6 years ago they decided to support the Combat Marine Outdoors organization. Wild West decided to support CMO because they get to see where the money is being used. In these past 6 years, they have donated $504,003 to CMO!


   Founded in 2006 by several brothers that wanted to be part of something worthwhile in life. They work continuously with local charities and other clubs to help the community such as special needs adults, kids and families, fallen bikers and their families, military veterans, and families.

   They also work with the American Motorcyclist Association (AMA) and the Texas Council of Clubs & Independents (TCOC&I) to promote motorcycle safety & awareness among drivers and bikers alike.

   Another important cause is in working with local, state, and federal governments to protect the freedoms and rights of motorcyclists and the American public in general. They are strong supporters of Constitutional Freedoms and limited government control. Lost Inc. MC believes in the freedom to ride a motorcycle, and they strive to portray a good light on the biker community as a whole.

   “BANDIDOS MC” and “RED & GOLD” support clubs

   Support bicycle and toy runs all over the state at Christmas and supports local families in need throughout the year. The Pasadena Marine Corps “Toys for Tots” is 26 years old. Bandidos MC, Richard (Nitro) Kimes has led the run as road guard since 2003. He owns Nitro Cycles in LaPorte, Texas, and donates to most local fundraisers to help those in need.

All this and are always ready to help out with anyone in the community. Their motto is “Helping one person at a time”.

   Rick and I would like to give a special thanks to all the people that took the time to help us out. This article was a last-minute idea so please forgive me if I didn’t get everyone mentioned. The list of Fabulous Bikers goes on and on into the millions.

   – Aurturo Garcia of Leathernecks MC, CEO and Founder of Combat Marine Outdoors.

   – David Regan (Gringo), Leathernecks MC.

   – Larry Colson, Wild West MC, President.

   – Mike White (Pale Rider), Wild West MC, Secretary

   – Todd Cole (Loop), Lost Inc. MC, Co-chairman Texas COC&I Region 3.

   After reading all this and knowing the list is just a tiny tidbit of all the Awesome biker clubs/groups/and charities, stop and think for a moment. What if the bad people in our government win and outlaw bikers altogether? They want to make it against the law to wear their colors, against the law to be a member of a biker club/group, and also scary, they want to label biker clubs/groups as “Gangs”. This label would allow the government to ban anyone associated with bikers to have their guns confiscated and be considered a felon. I find this such an insult to label us “Gangs”. The street gangs in the cities have not a single thing in common with Bikers.

   So imagine one-day bikers are no more, who is going to live the lifestyle of tirelessly working to support those in need? The homeless vets, homeless children, whole families, people with chronic diseases, mental illnesses, burn victims, abused and helpless animals, and abused and neglected children…… I would just like to say in closing, that it brings tears to my eyes to imagine a world without Bikers. Thank you brothers and sisters working so tirelessly to support our great country, The United States of America.

   Love to All, Lincoln
