Part of the Club Again – Keller Resident Bill Dooley
Mustang Creek Estates of Keller resident and Motorcycle enthusiast Bill Dooley relives his passions and talks about the camaraderie associated with being in a motorcycle club.

Bill Dooley received quite the surprise back in November. The Navy veteran and motorcycle aficionado was greeted by members of Disciple Christian Motorcycle Club at his home at Mustang Creek Estates in Keller.

"I just feel lucky to have these new friends," Dooley said Dooley rode Harley motorcycles his entire life and was a member of his own motorcycle club for decades before retiring his bike due to age and health complications.

"I miss it very much, but I miss the friendships more than anything," Dooley said. WFAA’s Daybreak worked with Mustang Creek Estates and the Disciple Christian Motorcycle club to bring one of Dooley's fondest memories back to life in a series called "Passion Project."

"It's the camaraderie that I miss most. They're like family, there's no other way to put it," Dooley said. The camaraderie between bikers was on full display. Ken McCorkle and the rest of the Disciple Christian Motorcycle Club had never met Dooley, but some rode in from as far away as Houston and San Antonio to spend the morning with a fellow biker and make his wish come true. "We want to honor the men and women who came before us and paved the way," McCorkle said. "Our mission is to uplift, pray for and support all clubs and riders."

The Disciple Christian Motorcycle Club sat with Dooley, drank coffee and shared stories from the road. The morning ended with a prayer, a hug and new friendships between Texas men who share a love of the open road.

"I just want to let you know how lucky I feel that I have all these new friends in my life," Dooley said.
