All About The Nomad Biker Gang
An individual who might be a member or might not be a member of a motorcycle club is called a Nomad and the person is not bound by geographic province or maybe not yet reputable one. There are omissions to individuals being the members of motorcycle clubs. For instance, military veterans’ clubs, in this club the members are spread across the United States of America, but still, do not have more members to have a club chapter in a particular area.
The Nomads bikers club was established in April 1966, and in the first meeting itself the members raised the constitution subject. The clubs constitution was based on the RCYC (Royal Cape Yacht Club) constitution copy, which was provided by Nick Ehrman. Les Hayden was the main person who is also the initiator for the formation of the club. He discussed the idea consequently with YMCA members who were also excited in forming a bikers club for 500cc or over British bikes. In the year 1966 April, all members gathered for a meeting at a small lounge in the Observatory of YMCA. The members and founders of the Nomad club were Messrs Nick Ehrman, Les Hayden, Pat O’Connor, Billy Steyn, Robert Borrel-Saladin, Fred Birkenshaw, Billy Burnell, Desmond King, and more.
The Nomad motorcycle club was attached to the YMCA, which was a very big garage where several repairs were executed in the night time and also on Saturdays and Sundays. At some point, this became an important thing for the club, and they have appointed Chairman Nick Ehrman as a Garage Manager.
The Flying boot logo of the club originated by Mike Wrightford and Pat O’Connor. The idea cropped up one day in 1966 when both these men sitting in the last rows of the lecture theatre at the UCT. They were planning to get better things like BSA Gold Stars and Velocettes. While dreaming, suddenly they decided to have a logo for their newly born club, and that is when the Flying Boot was created. The original drawing was done by Mike immediately and gave the drawing to Jerry Day. Jerry Day immediately produced the logo and also immediately they produced the first badges.
Most bikers club members wear a protective rocker that is, the on the back of the jacket underneath patch. That shows what state, city or territory their chapter is situated in. The territorial rocker of a Nomad was simple, and it just says ‘Nomads’ or ‘Nomad.’ That means the members do not hold any specific commitment to a particular club chapter or region, but they should be accepted and respected widely b the club as a full member.
However, a Nomad who appears in the club can be hosted by any chapter, but he cannot express a chapter because each chapter acts as an independent unit contained the rules of the parent club. Nomad lives in geographical areas sometimes that have fewer members than required to form a chapter. The Nomad may choose to live solitary lives or they may have been sent to a place with permission to form a chapter.
