 n.— «Reggie, in his own mind, was a great stunna—not a number one Stunna—but he was a great stunna on the bike. And Kels was an up and coming stunna, eager and ready to ride. “All we did was stunnin. All we did was practice stunnin and riding stunnin. We had a better vision of what we wanted to see in a motorcycle club. That’s how it all came about.”…A stunna is someone who wants to do more than just ride a motorcycle, Huggins explained.» —“Ride or die: For the Black motorcycle club, being free on two wheels is in the blood” by Demetrius Patterson Chicago Defender Nov. 27, 2006.
