We get a lot of “how to join” questions from different people through mail and social media. “Hey guys, I’m a veteran and I ride a motorcycle. Can I join?” Uhm, no...... Let me set this one straight. We are NOT some veterans social club. We are not an institution that’s gonna “pat you on the back” when you walk in and start talking about all your PTSD problems. (And no, it’s not that we don’t take ptsd seriously, we do.) But.......
We are a MOTORCYCLE CLUB!!! An MC that just happens to consists out of veterans from all branches. So yes, you will have to be a veteran to join. And no, the fact that you’re a veteran doesn’t mean you can join.
If you’re not a custom to the MC- or biker lifestyle, you will never understand what it takes to be in an actual MC that still lives by the rules of the old school.
If you think this is a lifestyle that could fit you, then start by attending club nights, ride outs, meets, etc. Then after some time when it still feels right and the feeling is mutual, maybe you can start as a hangaround in an MC.
If you’re just in it for the patch because you think this will make you a “tough guy”, you’re in the wrong club. The world has enough posers and we don’t need ‘em. Remember, the man makes the patch, not the other way around. There’s no school like the old school.
