Memorials

We participate, as a club, in many memorial and internment ceremonies for veterans throughout the year. From the Port Orchard Unforgotten Run, to various MIAP honors escorts. Each of us participates as we can, and as we feel so moved to do so. But one that we do, as a chapter, every year, honors one of our own. Its sobering for each of us, in its own way. Some of us knew the man personally, others of us only know him through this ceremony. But it shows the respect we have for our fallen, that rain, or shine, we muster up as one and roll on. In formation as if he was riding with us, to his grave, we roll on to visit our friend and brother.

Spook is gone, but just as our patches remind us to never forget, we shall not.  For as we remember our fallen Brother, we also honor the fallen of all our brothers, all our service men and women, on our own Day of Memorial.  Rest well now Brother Spook, and all those you have found in the beyond.  We’ll raise a glass and toast to you and to all our brothers missing and gone.

Happy New Year!

We had a great turn out for our Annual New Year’s Day ride.  Nothing quite like watching two columns of motorcycles fill your vision in front of you as you speed down the highway.

Thanks to all the brothers that joined the OC on a beautiful start to 2018.

North Puget Sound’s “Opportunity” Ride

What a BLAST!

Our Nasty North Brother’s in the North Puget Sound put on one hell of a ride this past weekend.  The poker run started at the Cycle Barn in Marysville, WA and ended at the Fleet Reserve Lodge in Oak Harbor, WA, with stops at the Conway Muse, Big Lake Bar and Grill and the Corner Bar and Grill along the way.  Good open roads, excellent company, and a well planned and led ride all the way.  Skagit Valley is always nice for riding on a hot summer day…

The ride, raffle, and auction raised funds for the Opportunity Council of Island County.  Once again, Brothers, a valiant success both in execution and in cause!

Check out the North’s Facebook Post event report and thank yous…

Algona Days 2016

Algona Dayalgona2016s Bike Show
For the past two years, in conjuction with the Algona Days Festival, BIAMC-OC has hosted a small Bike Show. The event included 7 entrants in the Cruiser catagory, displays from local motorcycle dealerships Indian-Victory Motorcycles of Auburn, and PNW Powersports, the ever throttling Dyno Steve and two vintage motorcycles from Burgins Motorcycle Museum of Spanaway. Along with the Bike Show, we held raffles and an Auction to raise money for the Washington Soldier’s Home at Orting.
This year’s event was a success, raising more than $1200 which will be combined with the funds raised earlier in the year by another BIAMC chapter to purchase a medical device for the Veteran’s Home.

Unfortunately, two of the local dealerships that has committed to be part of the festival decided not to honor their committment to the event and were no shows the day of the event, Destination Harley-Davidson, and Hinshaw’s Motorcycles.
