Our Founder

Kenneth "Dream Maker" Thomas is a retired Chicago Police Officer who founded the Chicago Buffalo Soldiers Motorcycle Club to honor the military history and legacy of African Americans. After a period of steady growth with clubs in other states, the club changed its name to the Chicago Buffalo Troopers Motorcycle Club and formed the National Association of Buffalo Soldiers and Troopers Motorcycle Club in 1999. The Chicago Chapter is recognized as the mother chapter and founders of the organization. To date, the NABSTMC has over 120 chapters throughout the United States, including one in South Korea.
Kenneth "Dream Maker" Thomas has been riding motorcycles over 30 years. His current bike is a 2013 Victory Cross Country Tour. Kenneth wanted to form a motorcycle club that would be respected and educate people in diverse communities throughout this nation. The club mission is simple: we ride, educate, and give back to the community.
