Video: Motorcyclists Get Together In Starkville

STARKVILLE, Miss. (WCBI) –  Dozens of bikers showed up at the Starkville Sportsplex for a good cause.

It’s an effort to bring together community motorcyclist from all over the area. K-9 Too of Jackson, Street Jumpers of Columbus, Street Villianz of West Point, Street Kings of Starkville and Underground Ryders of Tupelo sponsored the event. These riders want to make sure people then just being a part of a group, it’s about giving back.

“A lot of people think motorcycle clubs is just a gang but it’s not. We do a lot of stuff in the community and this is our way of giving back to bring the community together,” said Jackie Moore, President K-9 Too.

Vendors included blood donations with United Blood Service, Motorcycle Safety Foundation, Breast Cancer Awareness and much more. Organizers hope by getting together others will be able to see bikers in a positive light instead of the negative stereotype.
