About The

Vermont Road Dawgs

Motorcycle Club


The Club is made up entirely of full and part time law enforcement (sworn) officers, active and retired. The ROAD DAWGS® are a Club that has no affiliation

with any other motorcycle club in the country. We are a group of motorcycle enthusiasts who are not going to bring attention or disrespect to law

enforcement or the Club. Any member who violates the Articles or Bylaws, as established, or causes undue or negative attention to law enforcement or the

Club will have their membership terminated. The primary goal of the Club is to promote riding and friendship among the law enforcement community.

Unlike other clubs, there is no requirement to own a Harley-Davidson Motorcycle to join; however, café style racers and “crotch rockets” do not meet

club standards.


The Club was originated in June 1995. The initial intent of the group was to form a list of police officers that could call on each other rather than ride alone.

It took approximately 14 months to come up with a name that would not be offensive or in any way align itself with deviant behavior, demonic animals or

off the wall beliefs. The color combination of the rockers and patch would also have to be light in nature and not resemble the colors of an outlaw motorcycle club. The initial

Club run was made in September 1996 when the original chapter members made a two day, 1100 mile ride to Maryland to attend the National Troopers Coalition (NTC) picnic.
