The Badgers M/C is one of the older District 37 (AMA) motorcycle clubs still racing in the desert. First established in 1969 for members of the Los Angeles Police Dept. and their families. Later it was to include other law enforcement agencies, including firefighters and friends with a like passion for the sport of motorcycles. Throughout the year we have several family outings with lots of play riding & the swapping of lies around the campfire. One such outing that has become a tradition is the thanksgiving weekend.
Since 1973 the Badgers M/C have hosted an off road motorcycle race within District 37 (AMA). The first race was a Hare and Hound held near Red Mountain Ca. The Badgers M/C have also held Hare Scrambles, Hare Hound Team Races, and of late have been putting on European Scrambles near Ridgecrest CA since 1991. This race has become a traditional Mothers Day event.
The Badgers Motorcycle Club has been active in AMA and District 37 activities over the years. Our members have held positions in D37 of President, Treasure, Secretary, Director at Large, Board of Directors, and also Steward. We have also participated in several desert clean ups and have had fund raisers for Rescue 3. In 1987 the Badgers M/C was given an award from D37 for having put on the best desert race of the year.
The Badgers have an average of 80 riders and once a son or daughter begins to race, they become a full fledge member. Each new member must be sponsored in by another member and there is a six month probation period. All members are encouraged to sponsor people who fit the profile and the ideals of the Badgers Motorcycle Club.
There are four primary requirements for the club members: (1) You are required to work on the Club's yearly race, where you earn second place work points each race day. (2) You must camp and pit with the club at all races. (3) You don't leave a race event until all riders are in. (4)You must pay you yearly club dues of $25.00.
The Badgers Motorcycle Club is dedicated to the family, motorcycle racing and promotion of the sport. The Club is highly respected by other clubs, and members of the off-road racing community.
