It’s a lifestyle
Being part of a biker club is a way of life, not a pastime. Let’s start at the start. A bike purchase is only the beginning of many things when you got into the lifestyle of a biker. From here, we need to consider the kind of bike you choose to purchase and this will likely dictate your lifestyle. For instance, if you are a racer, you’re more likely to enjoy races and tracks or speed, and more likely to ride on weekend and during sunny weather. It’s a bit of a myth however, it’s generally true however, not always. If you’ve got an older bike, cruiser trike, rat bicycle or custom, you’re likely to be interested in the social aspect of things. Rallies, custom-made shows and MCCs’ parties, charity rides, etc. let’s discuss the second group and I’ll be honest, it’s incredible. Bikers are generally sincere, trustworthy, confident, and stoic people. They’ll assist you with any subject, but once you decide you start to break the rules and snooping around, you’re done. Have been to quite a few rallies, and have never seen any issues. The most harrowing incident I saw was a group of outsiders entering a lodge that a guy rented by a MC and stealing their drinks and tossing and turning off their lights! Most people would be horrified about such conduct. The situation resolved without violence (although it was clearly threatening) and the perpetrators were removed from the site of the rally. Bikers are just 1% people who dedicate their life to a new lifestyle and being part of the world’s most respected family. It’s a family. it’s a tight and close network. If you’re a scumbag everybody will know about it. In the same way, if you’re a decent individual Everyone will know about it to. Are you stuck on the side of the road? A biker will stop and assist you. Facing hard times? Your team will help your through the rough patch. Do you need help with something? Look out for your bros to gather to help. As you will observe, being a biker is more than riding the bike. We hope this helps.
Rules for a Biker Club
It probably isn’t anything like you’d expect. You might be surprised to learn that most of the rules are about motorcycles: they need to get their self registered, licensed, insured, reliable, in good repair, and ridden responsibly. Huge emphasis on responsible riding! When you are riding in a pack 20 deep, or on a “run” with hundreds of other bikes, an accident or a bit of recklessness can be disastrous causing a dozen wrecks and serious injuries. Also, next to motorcycles, one of the most important things to a biker is RESPECT: not only self-respect, but respect for others. 1% are surprisingly polite people known for keeping their word and assisting stranded motorists. If you decide to join a club, first there will be a “hang around” period when they decide to run you off or not. MCs are a closed society distrustful of outsiders, and if you are overly talkative or drink to excess you will find yourself unwelcome and shunned. If they like you, a member may agree to sponsor you, which is a huge responsibility. He will need to teach you how to be a proper biker and follow the rules, and if you screw up, HE loses his patch and is out of the club. You will get a bottom rocker for your vest and expected to prospect for at least a year before they vote to make you a member or not. During the time you are prospecting you would expect to make friends with everyone in the club and do a LOT of hard work cheerfully without complaint. That patch is hard to earn and easy to lose, but it is a solid Brotherhood who will back you 110%.
