In case you don’t know it, I am a very proud member of the Hamsters USA.

We are a social riding group that rides & enjoys all things motorcycles. The Hamsters have been around since 1978 & currently we have over 300 members from all around the world. Lots of Hamsters are in the motorcycle business & a few of the well known names include: Arlen, Cory & Zack Ness, Donnie Smith, Dave Perewitz, Paul Yaffe, Joe T. Moore & Don Hotop.

You don’t have to be in the motorcycle business to be a Hamster, but lots of us are. I was inducted into the Hamsters in 1999 & it truly is one of the highlights of my life. As Hamsters we do lots of good things for many different charities. Our biggest charity effort is for the Children’s Care Hospital & School in South Dakota. This year during the Sturgis Rally, we, the Hamsters USA organization, raised over $250,000 for the Children’s Care Hospital & School in one night! How about that?! Isn’t that awesome?!

I am very proud to be a Hamster & very proud of my Hamster brothers. You can always spot us at motorcycle events around the country & we always wear our famous yellow Hamster USA tee-shirts. Next time you see a Hamster, please go up & shake his hand & say “Hey, Fairless told me it would be cool to shake your hand”!
