If this thread were here to answer some educational question or something, then it has probably served its purpose.

Thousands of citizens can share their opinions of clubs. Big deal. Who cares, Enough said.

Thousands of Hang Arounds or wannabes can give their opinions. Big deal. Who cares, Enough Said.

War stories, gang ra-pes, mass murders, shoot outs at race tracks? Best left for Chapters from novels. Want them? Read Barger's book. Want more, read some DOJ Documents. (But they are written by government snoots... so keep in mind about half of what is there MAY be true.)

Want to prove you are a woman's champion and would NEVER treat a woman like those "clubs" do? Well, go git yerself a woman and treat her right. A man who treats a woman right does not have to brag that they do.

Join a club! You get some woman handed to you, you have to hit her a few times, and then she begs for crumbs,... when she is not out bedding down every other brother anyway. I mean c'mon. Be serious. Woman are smart... and many different women CHOOSE many different lifestyles.

Want to all get along? Just kick back, be yourselves and dont give a sh-it if so and so said such and such, or if so and so runs with the yada yadas.

S-uck up to one group... lose points with another. S-uck up to another... lose points somewhere else. Sort of ridiculous and too damn much for me to keep track of!

If you are in... you are in. If you are not, you are not. None of it makes much of a diference, except at certain events and at certain addresses. And, those that know this, know where to go with who, where not to go ever, and where the radar line is...

In general, NO ONE here should worry about that. Ride free, ride hard, and ride with respect... the country belongs to all of us. Our fore fathers stole it fair and square?

The life style of a club is very different and may very some from club to club. But one thing seams to be the same with everyone I have ....... seen. The ladies are a commodity for the club. They are not an equal member. They club?s way of treating the ladies is not my way so I have turned them down when asked. Yes I have been asked to join a few clubs. So I have been around some and I do know what it?s like. After turning them down it was a member of a large club that gave me my name. But I also know I could call him and they would come if needed. They still are good friends and some better then family. But you must get a deep look at there life and see if that?s what you want. Then it?s up to you.

I have been in the clubs but this was years ago and if not for a dear friend, not my 'ol man at the time, I would have been doomed. Now knowing another from a club, i would feel perfectly safe and no my life is in good hands....so to speak

SLB,

I've been reading a lot of threads on BK and it is clear: There is a huge difference between a 'Man' and a 'guy".

I am happy to hear about the real 'Man' you know who gave so much to others, and his big heartedness.

WhataMan
DD

Ha ha ha!
Thanks DD
Learned a long time brother went down this week, a cager pulled out of a driveway into the side of N*** bike.
N*** is a member of a national club one of the five, he's been through a number of surgery's and will be bedridden for sometime to come.
N*** wasn't wearing a helmet, (Like that would have helped) didn't read that in the paper?
Now I'll tell you what a Brother is.
The club had a benefit for N***, quite a lot of funds were raised for N***, then N*** called and said to donate the funds to the brothers stricken by the Hurricane.
That's what defines a fine man, a "Brother" to the World.
I'm proud to know this Man!
Peace

SLB

I started this thread quite a long time ago and I am surprised to see how long this thread has remained alive with this many great BKers speaking their mind. A lot of soul searching and experience has been writen in this thread and I commend each and every one of you.
The members of Clubs I know are not as bad as the public perceives them to be,
for instance most I know are Family Men with Sons and Daughters who with their wives lead normal hard working lives, own their own businesses and are law abideing citizens in the communities where they live.
Their main hobbie is their bike and they're love of riding it, especially in a group ride along side their brothers who they trust and respect.
Peace

SLB

~~~~~~ I would not expect anyone to say anything that is something better left unsaid-for everybodies protection. I am only asking for what CAN be shared and to be educated. Naive is not a great place to sit. And, I will listen and learn. I am here to make good friends, not royally p*iss* people off. I also believe in a certain degree of free speach. Chatting openly about things that can be expressed freely. Private things remain private.
And, I know about the political bs and the secret clubs. I have looked there and educated myself. I stand by my good intentions and purity of heart.
DD

a 1% club is an OUTLAW club... shouldn't take a genius to figure out why there's secrecy.. and DD...you may wanna think about changing your post.. making reference to any particular club in an open forum like this isn't such a good idea..

Many years ago, the president of the AMA gave a speech where he stated that 99% of of the people you meet on motorcycles are good people.

The "clubs" at the time took the 1%, and basically adopted that they were the 1% he did not speak of. Now, there are a very small number of 1% clubs. Other clubs are either support clubs, affiliated clubs, tolerated or other.

Anyone can write what they want. Anyone can assert what the papers and the magazines have blown out of proportion. Anyone can cast a wide net based upon fable or over-exageration.

Yes, there are some very different people involved in clubs. But, there are different people everywhere. You want to find a pass around? Go to a College Fraternity party. You will find one there faster than at a "club". Oh, but wait, these are the future politicians, lawyers, doctors, etc. We cannot make them look bad.

There are those that freely give s e x away as a way to feel they are wanted, important, or that they belong. Patches or Colors are not brands of predatory male practices -- they are banners of allegience to their brothers... and their club. Will you find women being abused by some of those people, maybe, but you will also find the same thing everywhere else. Personally, I would start with the history of the Oval Office, paying close attention to JFK, LBJ and Slick Willy Clinton.

But, for your own good, I would not ask folks to email you or ask many questions about these topics. There are many things folks just don't talk about, or should not. This is not unique to the Colors or Patches... you would likely get the same from the Elks, the Masons, and any other fraternal brotherhoods.

Well said AJ, being the wife of a departed 1%er, I could not explained it any better. The only thing you didn't touch on is why everyone is so secretative, it's called a code of ethics and honor. Somethings are better left unsaid. My extended family are a great bunch of guys. L&R

Gentle:

Thank you for a well thought out post. It is both educational and inspiring I am sure to many.

As far as the stories that one hears or the actual occurences one sees regarding this topic, everyone has a different take. Yours was touching.

AJ
