Iron Order M/C : Did we all get it wrong about them? Legit Motorcycle Club or Not?

By James “Hollywood” Macecari

I use to be in the same camp as everyone else regarding the Iron Order M/C. Actually I was one of the hardcore haters. The notion that you could get a patch through the mail without putting the work in to get it, the notion that the club had a bunch of cops in it which made it a cop club, the list goes on and on . The notion of a club just doing what it wanted to do without asking or following the guidelines of the biker world, something that was established long ago is what had everyone upset. Then this author started looking at them with a different lens. I wanted to know why people joined the Iron Order M/C. Wanted to know why they were hated so much by others in the biker club world. So through an old friend of mine whom we shared time in the B&W world I got to go to an event one of the local chapters was having .

When I arrived at the event I had all the preconceived notions everyone else had about the Iron Order. But those notions quickly started fading as I got to know the people at the event. For one, everyone was really outgoing and greeted me right away. Everyone was sitting around enjoying a barbecue and talking bikes and where to ride next. One thing that instantly I noticed, they didn’t talk about the other clubs or take any offense to the way they were looked at by anyone. To put it bluntly they really didn’t care. That surprised me a bit and I was taken back. Let’s be honest clubs these days have become a place to pump each other’s egos or see who has the biggest dick. This too my surprise wasn’t the case with Iron Order. They were just happy hanging out with the brothers and sisters, didn’t care a bit what others thought of them.

 

That got me thinking, this club was living the way it was always intented to be in the first place, going out there riding their bikes, partying with each other and not caring what others thought. I have to admit that I was one of those many who viewed the lifestyle in a particular way. But that day shattered the way I looked at everything.

The question that I asked myself is “Did I and everyone else have it wrong about this club?”. I’d have to answer yes to that. Why? Because being bikers we never were really all into following what society thought about us. We as bikers would do as we pleased without asking permission from anyone, so why do we knock a club that does what we all as bikers stand for in the first place? Is it so in the culture that we are made to believe the so called 1%ers hold the lifestyle to a fix way of doing things? Or do we as bikers look up to an image that really isn’t what being a biker is all about?

Yes the Iron Order has some police in it. But they also have a shit ton of war vets that fought for this country . It also has hard working blue collar people that go to work every day to support a family. In essence, the Iron Order has a makeup of what makes America .

It was conceded in the beginning that the way membership was run put a black eye on the club. But as in any organization you have to go through growing pains and learn from your mistakes. Now the Iron Order has grown and has a prospect period before being a member, no you can’t just get a patch in the mail. That unfortunately will always be said by those in clubs and their supporters to keep knocking something they don’t like.

Iron order M/C has come a long way since their originals started it. The structure is down pat now. It has grown into a strong brotherhood, one that don’t care what everyone else thinks. It has no desire for power or territory, it’s a club that enjoys riding and the brotherhood of it’s members. Isn’t that what it’s suppose to be about after all? Brotherhood and riding? To learn more about Iron Order M/C go to their website or actually talk to one of it’s members!!!! Maybe then without all the noise you can actually make an informed decision about them.

  1. Which is it, are they posers or a legitimate M/C? Your other articles made the Iron Order M/C look like a joke. You wrote a lot of shit about their members, but did not provide any sources and now you are writing you may have it wrong? Which is it?!

  2. I like the fact that you shared how you originally felt about them and that you stated that it was only when you took a step back and looked at who they really were, that you came to this conclusion. Sadly in this day in age many have forgotten what real motorcycle clubs were all about. It was never about the 1988 made up rule called protocol. It was actually far from that. It was about hanging with like-minded people, family, Brotherhood however you want to word it, and being free. If you would go back in time and tell one of the original clubs that not only would they have to answer to another club but they have to follow rules that another club sets for them to even become a club they would of laughed at you and said you dont know what all this is about and its time for you to move on. Unfortunately clubs like the Iron Order will always have to deal with todays mindset and skewed vision of what an MC is and they will always have to deal with the poor past leadership they once had. Time will tell

  4. Thank you for being open to the thought that maybe you had it wrong. As a former 1% club member, I looked at the iron order real close before I decided to give them a try. Glad I did. They are real bikers. Do they have some issues with members acting like fools? Of course, all clubs have them types. You are right, we don’t care what the whole world thinks about us, but, we do want to exist in peace with all clubs. We ride a lot, party a lot and enjoy the brotherhood that comes with being in this club. Isn’t that the whole enchilada right there?

  6. Your a dumb fuck our maidens have rules and guidelines just like we do they might get wild sometimes but who doesn’t. Each one of them is a living member of a family and would do anything for anyone why don’t you get a life instead of bashing on IO and IOM or why don’t you give IO a try?

  8. It seems as though “Anonymous” is familiar with sisterhood. I don’t think one way or the other butI know many IO and they are bikers that live the old way and don’t seem to care at all what anyone thinks.

  9. Irrelevant,
    I’ve been to some of your functions. Use to be a supporter heard the stories from some of your IO guys who no longer are in your so called Brotherhood. As for your maidens I find most of them to be repulsive they have no respect for themselves. How can you guys let your women parade around like that. Goes to show your so called brothers have no respect for there wife/girlfriend…
    So what I’m a hater of your club…. I don’t hide behind a keyboard either I still go to your functions and see with my own two eyes and hear with my ears… You talk about other brothers and turn around and kiss there asses… So wrong in so many levels.
    As for the brothers you guys have lost, some were not in IO anymore you go and post GBNF that’s so wrong on so many levels. They must have left for a good reason so why do you parade them around like there still in your club. Your showing yet again disrespect for the family. I can go on forever about your club but for now I’ll keep observing your faults. See ya soon

  10. I have gotten to know one particular chapter over the years. Skeleton Krew is the greatest group of bikers I know and are based in Beaufort County, NC. My dad was one of the original three that began this chapter years ago, but sadly he passed away a few years ago from Lou Gehrig’s (ALS).

    This chapter has pulled together with others across our nation and raised thousands for the local ALS chapter in my dad’s memory and they never fail to bring awareness to this horrendous disease, while also bring their brotherhood together and raising money as the family they are.

    They also do many other things/benefits for the community. On October 21st they are having a benefit ride to benefit the local animal shelter.

    When I read negative comments regarding IOMC, I brush it off as it being someone that may judge prematurely without really knowing the group. It is sometimes easier to develop a predisposition without getting to know the whole story first.

    Thank you for this wonderful article – for a wonderful group!!

  11. Sorry for your loss and as for that particular chapter good for them on recognizing that ALS needs a cure and that there community’s need help. It’s other chapters whom don’t do a fuckin thing except exploit there maidens and talk shit about other brothers. Those words just stick in my head when my friend who was in IO left for medical reasons his President said ” If you need anything brother don’t hesitate to ask we will try our best to help” well 3 yrs later and not one of them have reached out to see how he is… They talk out of there asses. It’s to late now he is gone his family chose not to contact IO because they would only disrespect a forgotten brother… So don’t praise all there are a lot of back stabbing brothers…

  14. I know and am friends with many IO members. They are stand up folks. Know what the life is really all about. And that ain’t letting a bunch of thugs and criminals tell them what they can and can’t do. I also know for a fact that not one of th IO’s I know got their patch in the mail. It was earned and is worn with pride.
    I find it amusing that an entire community of law breaking, lieing folks immediately start accusing the IO of that very thing. One article even went so far as to try and describe a 1%er club as stand up and good people( not a quote). They pride themselves as living outside the law and when that causes consequences somehow they become the victims.
    Can’t have it both ways.
    Ride on IO! You’re not hated by all.

  16. This man thinks I’m IO 😂. Well you go on observing I suppose, makes no difference to me, if you’re still hating on them even though you go to their events then they’ve gotta be doing something right, since you care so much. Good luck with the 81 supporting, never had anything against them either, but they’ll dismiss you the same as the IO does.

    Good you’re the funniest type of poser… thank you for sharing your nonsense lol.

  18. Irrelevant I’ve visited NC chapter and VA…. I know for a fact there are 1%er’s in the IO… I’ve been in a club and I’m not a follower being independent is the best… I have many friends throughout the US who are Sixteens and 1%er’s. I respect thoughs who respect there brothers and there women. When IO had some of the women either walking around half naked these women are obese and nasty… A couple of IO brothers who have left were stabbed in the back the truth would come out about personal family problems…. I’m not supporting them anymore….

  19. I find it funny that naked women would even come up. ANY mc will have naked women running around, most even have stripper come to partys for just that reason. As far as respect for women, most MCs have them put property patches on. Not much respect. Not sure what all Iron Order does or doesn’t do but it sounds normal MC to me. As for getting stabbed in the back, again im not sure what clubs you’ve been around but most that i know that have quit % club sooner or later get kicked out bad. The same logic of you cant quit because your fired.
    People spend alot of time getting into a club and when someone quits they see it as walking out on family. Right or wrong thats how it is.

  20. I’m a IO Prospect, and yes we have FORMER 1%ers in our MC, but as long as you have no felonies you can join. You can’t hate 1%ers either, not all of them are bad people. You have Doctor’s and service members active and non active and other folks that’s in it. You can hate the IO as much as you want, but the truth is, I think you’re scared. You probably couldn’t make the Prospect period let along being a Full Patch member. So you can keep hating all you want, because the IO will be here after you’re gone. IOFFIO
