non-profit fraternal organization consisting of active and retired
law enforcement men & women who enjoy riding motorcycles.
Spring of 1974, Ed Gallant from the Bangor, Maine P.D. and Chuck
Shuman from the Brewer, Maine P.D. met with five other officers from
the area and formed a small, local motorcycle club. The rest, as they
say, is history.
Knight chapters were being formed in Massachusetts, New Hampshire,
and beyond. With the addition of Canada, and later Australia, the
Blue Knights became an international organization.
We now have
12,045 members in 396 chapters in 14 countries!
