MMOC Board of Directors, 2023-2024

President: Doug Wayne – Oakland P.D. – Retired

After serving 4 years (1974-78) in the USMC, I joined the Oakland Police Dept. in 1978. I went to the OPD motor school in November 1982, taught by 3 great OPD instructors, Rich Cademartori, Don Lopes and Fred Foster. In 1983, I transferred to OPD motors and joined MMOC in 1984. I spent 12 years on motors, both as an Officer and a Sergeant (and fortunate enough to be a motor instructor for 5 yrs.) Needless to say, those were the best 12 yrs. of my 26+ year career! I retired in 2004 and along with my wife, Cathy, have been enjoying the retired life.

For the last 15 years, I have been the webmaster for the MMOC website. If you have any suggestions, please feel free to contact me. I strive to keep the information current and relevant. As with the website, I welcome any suggestions, any of you may have, to make our organization better.  Please feel free to contact me about any issue regarding the MMOC.

In 2015 I became a Board member, and in 2017 I was elected President.  I welcome any suggestions to make our organization better.  Please feel free to contact me about any issues regarding the MMOC.  Also, please direct any MMOC membership questions to me as well.

Take care and if you are still riding, as my late co-worker would say, “God Love Ya”, and have a fun and safe ride, Doug Wayne.

Vice President: Larry Hodson – Oakland P.D. – Retired

I was a Police Officer at the Oakland Police Department from 9 Feb 1972 to 11 Feb 1997. As such, I worked Patrol, flew helicopters and rode Harley Motors. Not sure which Pro-Pay endeavor vibrated the most, but they sure were fun.

I’ve been an MMOC member for 31 years, and at the 85th Annual Convention I volunteered to become a Board member and the new Editor/Publisher of this Siren.

Formerly blonde and now grey in California, Larry Hodson.
