COMBAT VETERANS MOTORCYCLE ASSOCIATION
Maurice (spYderman) Le Blanc was born in Amarillo, TX and raised in Venice, California. He served in the U. S. Navy from 1965-1970 (2 yrs active & 3 yrs reserve). Vietnam Veteran 1966-1967, Brown Water Navy (River Patrol Force TF-116).
He had a long career with GTE/Verizon where he met Brenda (Barbwire) Le Blanc. She was born in Saskatchewan, Canada and raised in Southern California. They met in California but soon moved to Texas with their jobs and lived in the Dallas/Fort Worth area for 10 years. They have been married 28 years. They both had a love for motorcycles from their early years so in addition to their day jobs they started a business selling motorcycle accessories. For many years they traveled all over the country following the GoldWing Rally circuit, setting up as vendors and selling their products which were mainly designed by Maurice. In 1999 they took early retirement and became Vendors full time.
In 2003 they moved from Texas to Hancock County Tennessee to put them closer to the rally circuit and to downsize from a large home to a much smaller one.
Since then they have retired from the rally circuit and sell their products on line or through dealers. They love to ride and have 3 Shih Tzu’s that travel everywhere with them, by auto or bike. All of their kids together have 4 legs and hair. They have 5 horses, 3 cats and 3 dogs. They joined CVMA in 2016 order to show their support for other Vets and get involved in helping those in need.
Maurice’s roadname “spYderman” depicts the type of bike he rides, a Can-Am Spyder and Brenda’s roadname “Barbwire” depicts something that should have decapitated her years ago on her favorite Harley.
