We therefore, dedicate our web-site to the everlasting memory of those civil war era warriors who fought for much more than just the cause of the United States but for that which they were promised with the passage of the 14th amendment. Their desire to collect on this promise strengthened their resolve resulting in their forging ahead to prove themselves worthy.
Since the arrival of African captives in America, historical information regarding their past has been either omitted or that which is known, not taught in our schools. However, other Americans have the ability to research information regarding their lineage dating back to the fourteenth century. Until the establishment of the Buffalo Soldiers & Troopers MC and other groups that bear the Buffalo Soldier name, a number of their new members were not aware of their ancestor's Buffalo Soldier history. Several Buffalo Soldiers organizations have resurrected the image of the Buffalo Soldiers and therefore taken on the responsibility of never again allowing them to vanish from our memory.
You are hereby invited to enter the territory of the Buffalo Soldiers, a territory that encompasses a range spanning five frontiers. These frontiers are a product of a single club which resulted in the establishment of the National Association of Buffalo Soldiers and Troopers Motorcycle Clubs. The NABSTMC currently has a foot print that covers 66% of the States of the Union, including Hawaii. We, the Chicago BTMC are proud to be, The First of Many.

BUFFALO TROOPERS Motorcycle Club
Hello, My Name is Ken Thomas "DreamMaker".
I am the Founder of the National Association of Buffalo Soldiers and Troopers Motorcycle club
and current President of the Chicago Buffalo Troopers Motorcycle Club. I am a retired Chicago Police Officer currently working as the Security Representative for the NBA here in Chicago and I currently ride a 2013 Victory Cross Country Tour.
I have been riding motorcycles about 30 years or so since experiencing the joy of riding a scooter initially. I formed the motorcycle club in October of 1993 after experiencing the activities of clubs in the Chicago area. I wanted to create a new look in the motorcycle community by forming a club that rode honoring the history and legacy of those African Americans that who fought for this country and a club that would be respected within our community.
The club has grown in excess of 100 chapters, and as they say, “The rest is all history”
One Club, One Patch, One Mindset
