The Buffalo Soldiers Motorcycle Club (BSMC) was founded in 1993 in Chicago, IL by a retired Chicago Police Officer Kenneth “Dream Maker” Thomas, since 1993 the
Organization has grown from one chapter to over 119 nationwide and overseas. In 1999 the Chapters collectively formed the National Association of Buffalo Soldiers and Troopers Motorcycle Club,
(NABSTMC). The NABSTMC consists of professional men and women dedicated to the sport of motorcycle riding, safety, and educating the general public about the rich history of the 9th and 10th Cavalry Buffalo Soldiers.
In the State of Florida there are eight Buffalo Soldier Motorcycle Club Chapters the Orlando Chapter was started in 2007 by David “Radio” Phelan, and Evelyn
“Softail” Benton. The Orlando Chapter has several charitable events that we organize on an annual basis, such as a scholarship program whereas we give several $1000.00 scholarships to local High

Another objective of National Association of Buffalo Soldiers and Troopers Motorcycle Club is to educate those who are unfamiliar with the racism, sacrifices and
hardships that the Buffalo Soldiers of the 9th and 10th Cavalry had to endure. Our vision is to instill this knowledge into the minds and hearts of our youth, so that they can be motivated to become
better citizens and leaders of tomorrow. The National Association of Buffalo Soldiers and Troopers Motorcycle Club feel that by doing this, the legacy of the Buffalo Soldiers of the past will live on
forever and shall not be forgotten.
The colors (or the vests that we wear) represent a long history and we wear them with pride and respect. The colors pay homage to African Americans of the 9th and
10th Calvary Buffalo Soldiers who sacrificed their lives so that our country could be what it is today. Our Colors are a badge of courage, sacrifice and honor as are those who continue to serve in
the United States Armed Forces.
