2-mile long motorcycle procession for Oklahoma murdered Mongols Motorcycle Club member
BARTLESVILLE, OK (BIKER DAD) — A 2-mile long motorcycle procession for an Oklahoma murdered Mongols Motorcycle Club member brought some comfort to the family of Austin “Buck” Standeford, 40. He was shot and killed in a dispute over his girlfriend at a biker bark called the Kickstand Saloon.
Gregory Rogers (below) is charged with first degree murder. According to KOTV Rogers was making moves on Buck’s girlfriend and went too far. When he was confronted he started shooting, hitting Buck and another member of the Mongols working the bar. Van Parson also died in the shooting.
Mongols members from across the country came to ride in the funeral Monday. The procession stretched for more than 2 miles. The small Oklahoma town is reeling. They average one murder per year, so to have a double homicide is out of the ordinary.

Buck’s father spoke to the local newspaper. “Everybody loved Buck. Everybody. He was always smiling, always helping people. Didn’t have a mean bone in his body. Everybody was really shocked this would happen to him. He’s just not that way,” Mike Standeford said. “He was a Mongol, he loved the Club. The Mongols are wonderful. They’re always there to support their own. They’ve been here supporting me.”
