BLACKHORSE REGIMENT CAVALRY MOTORCYCLES (BHRCM) CHAPTER NEWS

BHMThe BHRCM, headed by Beau Richards out of Burbank, CA has updated their website at BHRCM.com for all to enjoy. It is an outstanding website with some very interesting Blackhorse history videos and an array of pictures of the chapter’s recent visits to the Regiment at Fort Irwin.

BHRCM also has some great "BHRCM Cavalry Motorcycles" shirts and do-rags. Check out their site and make your purchases through Beau at blusmn11thcav@gmail.com.

Our BHRCM Chapter is known all over the country but especially in California where they are deeply involved in supporting the Regiment at Ft. Irwin from Christmas toys for the children of our soldiers to fundraising support throughout southern California.

Members and friends, get your BHRCM memorabilia and join them for the Blackhorse Regiment’s Annual Motorcycle Rally at the Blackhorse Family Reunion in Houston from 9 – 13 June 2010.
