Bandidos MC Helsingborg, Sweden, Memory Run 2020
In January 1995 Hangaround Chapter Helsingborg became Bandidos MC Probationary Chapter Helsingborg. In July 1995 the chapter visited the chapter that would become Bandidos MC Helsinki in Finland. On the way back to Helsingborg founding member and chapter president Bandido Joe 1 %er was shot and killed on his bike.
One year later in July 1996 Bandido Face 1 %er in Bandidos MC Helsingborg was shot and killed on his bike in Norway.
Today the brothers Bandido Joe 1 %er and Bandido Face 1 %er are resting side by side on the cemetary in Helsingborg. In July 2020 it has passed 25 years since Bandido Joe 1 %er was killed and 24 years since Bandido Face 1 %er was killed. In remembrance and to honor them we drove a memory run from BMC Helsingborg.
The pack consisted of 164 bikes. We drove from the clubhouse in BMC Helsingborg through the city passing the city hall, to the spot where Bandido Joe 1 %er was shot and killed 80 kms from Helsingborg.
On the spot at the side of the road, we placed flowers and ribbons with words in rememberance.
From the spot where Bandido Joe 1 %er was shot and killed, we drove to the cemetary in Engelholm were Bandido Huhle 1 %er is resting. Bandido Huhle 1 %er passed away in 2014. We held a silent minute in rememberance of Bandido Huhle 1 %er.
From the cemetary in Engelholm we drove to the cemetary in Helsingborg and visited the graves of Bandido Joe 1 %er and Bandido Face 1 %er. A silent minute was held.
From the grave of Bandido Joe 1 %er and Bandido Face 1 %er we drove to the clubhouse of BMC Helsingborg were good food and drinks were served.
It was a good day for a memory run with many brothers attending and good weather. The sun was shining from a clear blue sky and no incidents despite the many bikes driving in the run. Thank you all for coming and making the event great.
With the words on the gravestone; Bandido Joe 1 %er and Bandido Face 1 %er gave their today so we can have our tomorrow. Our gratitude to you are eternal Brothers. You are always in our hearts and minds.
Gone But Never Forgotten. Bandidos Forever Forever Bandidos.
