In the beginning to World of Soul Motorcyclist Association

In the beginning there was no recognition or support for your unique riding experience. World of Soul Motorcyclist Association was born out of the need for A NATIONAL ADVOCACY GROUP for underrepresented riding communities.  Come along for the ride.  Your an advocate too.  www.wosma.com

The Evolution of Riders United to Serve Humanity

It was shortly after the open mic incident and during the MLK M5 campaign to raise funds for Dr. King's memorial in Washington, DC that I begin having conversations with Rev. Jesse L. Jackson about the prospect of working with the motorcycle community.  Jackson declined the invitation to participate in the MLK M5 campaign preferring to "concentrate on the living."

The concept of Riders United to Serve…

Here's Why You Can Call Me A Snake

I was talking with a friend.  She began asking questions.  What's your birth date?  What time were you born?

The first thing that came to my mind is, "I am an Aquarius".  So that was my immediate answer withholding the lyrics from "Float On"" - it was tempting.  I know that was not the question.  So I let her speak on to learn why she asked.  "Everybody knows the time and day they were born", She said. 

I was born February 17, 1965 at 1:37am.  My mother was born…

Welcome to the World of Soul Motorcycle Community family of riders

Friends,

Something or someone brought you to World of Soul Motorcycle Community.  It may have been an email invite from a friend, a post on Twitter, Facebook or even Myspace.

There's been a lot of talk about the state of the motorcycle industry

If image is everything, I wonder what role does the images stemming from the motorcycle community have on motorcycle sales?  Do you remember all of the many debates that transpired on this network years ago?  For some, the conversations struck fear (False Evidence Appearing Real) into the readers.  Pointing toward mutual relief has always been our aim through simple dialogue.  There are many options for new and existing riders.  However the public is not aware of them.  In fact, me…

In Honor of Dr. King's Birthday

As I reflect on Dr. King's legacy, I am especially grateful for the opportunity to connect with you through motorcycling and from it connect with Dr. King's legacy through our work. 

The year 2008 was a monumental year in more ways than one.  Together we raised $100,000 for the King Memorial Foundation.  In 2009, contacting the King family in Atlanta made it possible for us to culminate our Ride for CHANGE Ride for HOPE event at the King Center for Non Violent Social Change.…
