Welcome to the Northern Ireland Motorcycle Branch of The Royal British Legion
The Royal British Legion is the UK's leading Armed Forces charity and one of its largest membership organisations.
Officially opened for business in March 2009, we are an honourable Motorcycle Branch, our Brotherhood / Sisterhood is strong not only to the commitments of The Royal British Legion charity and the Poppy Appeal but also for our enthusiasm for motorcycling and the open road.
Our Branch is proud to have members who have served in the Armed Forces as well as civilian members from the extended military family all of whom promote and support the Legion with great zeal.
We have bikes of various shapes and sizes and just getting out and having fun with our friends, whilst raising awareness and funds for the Poppy Appeal, is our passion.
We socialise together as well as taking part in formal parades and friendly ride outs.
We have had over 100 members in our ranks since we started, but we are always on the outlook for new ones.
We have held our meetings in Armagh, Cookstown, Banbridge and Enniskillen but our HQ is in Dungannon RBL Club as it is centrally located.
We've been on parade in Dungannon, Newtownards, Portadown, Tandragee, Antrim, Bangor, Banbridge and Belfast, and have visited RBL branches from The Isle of Man to Malta.
In 2012 we had the honour of launching the Poppy Appeal, here in Northern Ireland, by riding our bikes to City Hall and presenting the Lord Mayor with a poppy wreath in the shape of a motorcycle, the event enjoyed quite a bit of TV and press coverage and we were made to feel very welcome by all, even though it was the first time it had been done on motorcycles.
In 2015 and 2016 we were asked again by the RBL to assist in the Poppy Launch with a static display outside the Poppy Shop and Pop In Centre in Belfast, a request which we proudly accepted.
We've also had representation at The Ride Of Respect in 2015 and The Ride To The Wall since 2013.
To see what we're doing, have a look on our Facebook page,

About The Royal British Legion
We provide financial, social and emotional care and support to all members of the British Armed Forces - past and present and their families. The Legion is also the national Custodian of Remembrance and safeguards the Military Covenant between the nation and its Armed Forces and is best known for the annual Poppy Appeal and its emblem the red poppy.
Founded in 1921, the Legion is not just about those who fought in the World Wars of the last century, but also about those involved in the many conflicts since 1945 and those still fighting for the freedom we enjoy today.
