History of the Red Knights

During the summer of 1982 several firefighters were visiting "Randy's Cycle Shop" in Boylston, Massachusetts and the subject of motorcycle clubs came up.

Soon they were all grousing about the fact that law enforcement people had a motorcycle club known as the Blue Knights but there was no club for firefighters. After this tire kicking session, owner Randy Wilson suggest...ed to Ed Wright, a firefighter from Northboro, MA, that he stop talking about the lack of a club and form one instead.

Update for firefighters Day parade:

Red Knights will be riding in the Firefighters Day parade @ the Erie County Fair, this Friday August 8th. The fair website says the parade starts at 630pm but Frank thought it started at 6pm, so either way please plan on arriving early enough to get onto the track in time. We will park our bikes on the track in the same spot we have in the past. To access the track, enter the Clark St. gate (the one closest to McKinley Pkwy) and proceed to the track. Must have proper fire department ID for free admission. We will also again be welcomed as guests of West Falls Fire Co and have access to their dugout.

Derek, RKNY21

I bought tickets for the 2021 Whiskey Wheelbarrow Raffle but the date of the drawing isn't on the ticket. What is the date? Thank you!
Yes its late in the season but NYS Thruway is going cashless in few weeks..did you know if you have a special motorcycle EZ-Pass tag you pay 1/2 the normal car toll rate ? If you use your car/truck EZPASS tag you get charged FULL rate you have to set up EZPASS account of you dont already have one and then CALL EZPASS to get the "M" motorcycle tag. you will have to fax or email copy of your current cycle reg..this also applies to Motorhomes altho the Motorhome rate is not 1/2 auto rate it is discounted from heavy vehicle rate..

The club (Chapter 21) is also participating/ riding in the Fireman`s Parade and we're extending the invite to other chapters as well.

After the parade, West Falls Fire has graciously opened up their dugout to club members for food and beverage. Derek Filipiak Secretary RKNY 21
This has to pass please send the governor an email to show your support!
Anyone know anything about motorcycle electronics? I put led signals on my bike and they worked when all torn apart now I put it back together and they blink like hazards. Help. Otherwise I'm selling it on the cheap like $1000 takes it. Thanks Bucki
