Message from the President

Greetings my name is Gene Brooks aka ‘Knight Ryder’

Welcome to our Chapter Website, where you will be thrilled and informed of what we do here in West Virginia. We are not a 1% Club and we claim no territory, however we take our colors that we wear very seriously. We do not tolerate discrimination based on race, color, religion, sex or motorcycle manufacturer types.

I am delighted to serve as the fifth President of the Buffalo Soldiers Motorcycle Club Charleston WV (BSMCCWV). This Chapter was formed/chartered in 2013 under the Great Lakes Frontier (GLF) of the National Association Buffalo Soldier Trooper Motorcycle Club (N.A.B.S.T.M.C).  We consist of Men and Women that ride motorcycles in honor of promoting the legacy of the 9th and 10th Calvary Regiments of the U.S. Army Buffalo Soldiers. We are a non-profit motorcycle club that share a common bond of riding, community service, and sponsoring scholarships through educating the public about the Buffalo Soldiers tours of duty from 1866-1944.  

Again, Welcome and enjoy as you browse through our website. We hope that you will gain knowledge about the rich African –American Military History and this great Motorcycle Club that we represent here in WV. Thank you for visiting and feel free to contact us on any future inquires you may have. I hope to see you on the road or your nearby community. God, Family, N.A.B.S.T.M.C., and remember, “Because of Them, WE can”.
