The Boring Old Fartz are a group of like minded people out to have fun andwith an interest in Motorcycles. We are a large family bike club based inBirmingham UK that has been in existence since June 1995.The membership is made up of a wide variety of characters both male andfemale with a sense of fun and having a good time.We are not solely a rally club although a large number of members do enjoythat side of biking.What we are, is a bunch of people who can and will do as we please but not tothe detriment of others. You're a short time alive but a long time dead so enjoy.
The Boring Old Fartz originally derived from the Sixty Nine Mc club, which disbanded in the late 1980s having feuded with another Mc club in the Midlands. Which was a shame, as there was a lot of comradeship amongst its members. One of those original members was Graham (Krang) Withey.In the early 1990's ex69MC member Graham was diagnosed with cancer and sadly went steadily downhill. It was on his last night in a Hospice that he said that he would have loved for the old 69 to be back together again. Graham passed away a few hours later. He had one of the biggest 'biker funerals' in the midlands with MC and Mcc clubs turning up as well as all his old Sixtynine MC comrades. The song 'Summer of Sixtynine' was played at Graham's funeral and it is now played at parties etc. as a tribute to our Bro Krang.A few years later it was decided to carry out Graham's last wish but not to reform the old club but to try and build up another club along similar lines to the Sixtynine but allowing more leeway for its membership. Firstly, I needed a name, as the Sixtynine MC was now defunct. Funnily Kenny B came up with the name at one of our get together's, he called us 'the old farts'on his invitation.This new club was to be known as the Boring Old Fartz and was formed by a lot of ex69 and some ex Birmingham MAG/UBUK members. This 'new' club is now known as the Boring Old Fartz MCC.So shortly after this, I designed the Boring Old Fartz patch(“notice 69 built into patch”) and using the old club colours (Gold on Black). I then contacted as many of the ex69 and friends as I could and arranged a meeting at Strikers Bar (now the Roadhouse), which belongs to the Withey's and where Graham and ourselves had had some very good times. This was also the venue for Graham's wake.It was generally thought to be an excellent idea and it was decided that owning a bike was not a necessity to join the BOF so the MCC was omitted from the patch so not making the club a 'motorcycle club'. This is why the older patches have no MCC marking.The Boring Old Fartz got off to a great start with myself doing all the party and run organization plus the Newz Letters with the aid of Teresa. Then in the second year, we had Runny Fart (Mick Condon. RIP) and Sue helping with the organization and all the monies not spent on the club newz' and club entertainment, went to a big Xmas party as by this time the Boring Old Fartz had taken over Strikers as our 'Club House' and renamed it The Roadhouse.Since then the Boring Old Fartz MCC, has evolved into a very well organized motorcycle club. Now having its own Club House (Jabba) plus the use of The Roadhouse and putting on the Whistle with the Wind Rally and the Isle of Wight Invasion every year.The Boring Old Fartz MCC also fund raise and support many local and national charities.I think Graham would be really proud to see how the club has evolved, I know I am.Cyco.Founder of Boring Old Fartz.________
