High Desert Ruff Ryder Chapter History (Irwin, CA)

In June 2008, Rogaine was reassigned by the Department of Army to Fort Irwin, California. Shortly after his arrival, he began to research how to initiate a Ruff Ryder chapter on Fort Irwin. He contacted members of the Los Angeles Chapter for guidance. During this period he never received the proper information. At this same time, three friends Ike, Soup, and ReyRey were seeking to organize a motorcycle organization. Ike stated that he would only join Ruff Ryders. ReyRey was a member of #1 Stunnas and Soup a member of the Masonic Riders agreed that if they were to relinquish their colors it would be to join Ruff Ryders as well. All three began to research how to start a Ruff Ryder chapter. July 2008, Ghost Ryder was reassigned by the Department of Army to Fort Irwin. Soup saw his motorcycle parked outside the Landmark Inn and left a note on his bike about starting a Ruff Ryder chapter on Fort Irwin. Ghost Ryder was already researching through the Inland Empire (IE) chapter about starting a chapter on Fort Irwin. Ironically, no one knew that each was researching the same information at the same time. August 2008, GhostRyder received the blessing and the IE chapter was named as the mother chapter. He began to recruit potential members of the High Desert Chapter. Family Man (Pres of IE) sent Switchboard, Smash, Ms.T and Daredevil to assist with establishing the chapter. GhostRyder contacted Ike; Ike contacted Soup and ReyRey with the information. At that moment Ike, Soup and Rey Rey began to inform their friends about the Ruff Ryder movement on Fort Irwin. GhostRyder, Switchboard, Smash, Ms.T, Daredevil and Ike traveled to the Fresno RR annual and Half-way Run to be recognized as a chapter. Ike was the first prospect of the High Desert chapter. Soup and Rey Rey attended the annual but solidified to become members afterwards. Shortly after Fresno, Smash and Ms.T returned to IE before High Desert was completely established. On February 1, 2009 High Desert RR was an established and officially recognized chapter. The vesting ceremony was conducted in Bakersfield, CA during the Bakersfield RR annual Black History Parade. It was the first chapter in Ruff Ryder history to stand-up with 24 fully paid vested members and three Prospects.

In 2010, HD became the first chapter in California to house both a female President and Vice President. Fatal was the President and Feisty was the Vice President. As of November 2012 the former incumbents are:
