Welcome to ...."Southern Cruisers Riding Club" Gold Coast Chapter
After being out of Motorcycling for almost 15 years, Rick Perry (aka) Rickster decided to buy a new bike and to start enjoying life just a little bit more than he had been. After a few weeks of riding alone he knew there was still something missing..... The Brotherhood of Biking. It was at this point that he decided to start a Riding Club in the Memphis Area to meet new friends and to get the people riding together and sharing the thrill of Motorcycling in a manner that was acceptable to all. After getting a few people together and coming up with the name Southern Cruisers Riding Club, he decided to put up a small WebSite on the net and start the Cruisers Forum so we could all have an on-line meeting place to discuss plans for rides they were setting up. During this time he was working on a Club Patch and went through about a dozen different designs before they all decided on the Current SCC Club Patch.Shortly after The Memphis Chapter started to form, He was contacted by Jerry Longdon "HIP" from the Knoxville area and was asked about the Club. After telling Jerry that it was just a Local club they decided to open a Chapter in Knoxville Tn just to see what would actually happen. Lots of decisions were made at this time about how to run the Southern Cruisers including a NO DUE`S Style Club, Not to give the Club a Bad name and, to keep it all clean and legal. Now the Knoxville Chapter was starting to organize and the Southern Cruisers was now a Tennessee Club.A little time went by and everything seemed to be going well for the two Chapters, Then he received a Phone Call from Tim Jones in Rome, Georgia . His first words were something like this " How about a Georgia Chapter " ! Still kinda shocked that someone would want to start a Chapter of the Southern Cruisers other than himself they got the Rome, GA Chapter going. After a few phone conversations with Tim, He told Rick that he designed Websites for a living and that he would gladly set up the Southern Cruisers with our own Domain Name and build and maintain the site for them. Still kinda in shock from all of this he agreed and Tim built...
" http://SouthernCruisers.Net " Thats when everything started happening.They began talking to David Williams in South Carolina, Tony Conway in Oklahoma, And Bill Strebel about the Middle Tennessee Chapter. It seemed that everyone was wanting to be a part of the Southern Cruisers Riding Club.  They started opening up new Chapters all over the United States and people were starting to join every single day and it was at that time that he realized that other riders were wanting a Club set up just like they had set up the Southern Cruisers.Now almost Two and a half Years later, Southern Cruisers has Chapters spread all across the United States and even out side the United States and we are growing faster than ever before, With almost  8500 Members  in the Southern Cruisers Riding Club, We can gladly say we have made it to the Big Time !
