HDAbout MC's HDVoorlopig enkel in het Engels!

Disclaimer: This page contains some information about the codes and values upon which many Motorcycle Clubs (MC's) are based. This is NOT the Bible, but it must give you a pretty good picture in how an MC works, how you have to behave and for what the members of an MC stand. The author of this page doesn't take a stand in, he just gathered this information all over the Net and brings it to you.

A vast majority of MC club members are just regular people. Have jobs, families, good and bad days just like anyone else out there.  In other words, they are people too.  They just choose a little bit different lifestyle than most and only ask others to respect their choice.  They have certain codes they live by and it's not just when the have their colors on! It's 24/7/365.

The following is just some of the ideals they live by.  I'll say again, different areas have different views on things even between members of the same club.

MC and Brotherhood

 

The word "Brother" has become very abused in the motorcycle world these days. Seems like if you buy a bike and a new set of leathers, everyone else that rides has now become your brother. Some call it Brotherhood when sharing the wind on two wheels. Some call it brotherhood when you ride a few roads together. Just what truly is brotherhood?

There are Brothers in Christ. Brothers in Masonic temples. Brothers in several organizations. Elite military units commonly form a brotherhood among the members of squads. Navy Seals for example, are more than the sum of their individuals. They become more than just a team. They become brothers, totally committed to one another up to and including giving their lives for one another if necessary. Men that have shared combat together have formed such close relationships as to call each other brother. While these are no less committed than any other Brotherhoods, when it comes to the motorcycle world, there is also a very strong bond among those that call themselves Brothers.

What is a Brother in the MC world? 

 

Once you've gone tH.O.G.® the hangaround period, the members of the Club have viewed your behavior, your attitude, your dedication, trust and loyalty, to be there. If you've actually completed this period, then you may be asked to become a prospect. During this time you are put under a much more intense review. You and the other members of the club find out if you are suited to be a part of the club and if you can accept the other members as Brothers just as much as if they can accept you and call you Brother. Can you dedicate yourself to the others as close as you would your own flesh and blood? Many times it is an even closer commitment than family. The person that you call Brother becomes family as a part of his as well as you being a part of theirs. A common phrase used in MC circles is ”I am my Brother’s keeper”. This means you will support him and help him any way you can, sometimes to the point of selling your bike to help him, quitting your job to go help him and, in some cases, Brothers have even done things that they already know could get them put in jail because they were willing to take that step to help a Brother out.

 With all that commitment, it’s also that you would not ask a Brother to do something drastic without very good cause. Brothers may disagree, but they will always respect one another and treat each other with respect.

Please take note that if you haven't had any experience being around some of the more serious MC's (1%, support clubs, etc.), they take the word "Brother, or Bro" very serious, and they'll only use the word as a show of respect towards their own club, their members, and any club who they've also bestowed that word upon. 

And if a club overhears someone throwing around the word lightly within their midst, it could cause them to aggressively educate those whom they felt disrespected them by abusing the word.

 

Next time you feel the need to call someone "Brother" or "Bro", just what is behind it? 

Commitment or just trying to sound cool...?

 

 

 

It’s a difficult journey that many just cannot manage.
Those that make it, wouldn't live any other way...!
