Aide mémoire regarding Nyte Ryderz of Renton

fuzzy photo, forgot real camera

The executive committee of the Night Riders Union of Seattle fellowshipped Monday night with a delegation from the Nyte Ryderz of Renton, enjoying the ride south to Randy’s despite the mid-August rain and wind.

In all, four union members and six Nyte Ryderz attended, making it the largest ride in union history, and one of the less well-attended rides for the Nyte Ryderz.

There were no knife fights, nor was there any aggressive break dancing. Nobody got served anything but frosty chocolate milkshakes. The only breach of protocol was committed by Secretary Bobby Gentle, who while gesticulating wildly during formal introductions did cause a glass of water to spill and wet the crotch of a member of the Renton delegation. No firearms were drawn.

Following the fellowshipping, union members were escorted into the city of Renton and were brought to the Stairway to Heaven, a regular stop for Nyte Ryderz plying the twilight of South King County. There union members proffered an alcopop and a strawberry blunt to be shared as a gesture of goodwill.

Among the outcomes of the diplomatic mission were the following:
-An open invitation for union members to attend Nyte Ryder rides as well as a BBQ next Monday
-A tentative accord to begin a regular ride with members of both gangs
-A tentative accord to stage a Lake Washington loop ride with members of both gangs
-Tentative plans to rendezvous in Georgetown for a tour of union hot spots, including the Scrap Pile

“It was a triumph of fraternity,” said union President Nunca Morales. “It goes to show that night riders, be them in Renton or Seattle, have more in common than having things that are not in common. With each other. Have in common with each other, more of them, you know what I mean. We speak the same language, worship the same gods and can sit together like dirty hippies and drink FOUR Loko and smoke a blunt.”

 “Many thanks to the gracious members of the Nyte Ryderz for inviting us into their turf,’ said Secretary Gentle. “This proves that the negative reputation of street gangs is just mainstream media hype.”
