Out Bad Meaning
USA IMPORTING FOREIGN MOTORCYCLE CLUBS?
Why Foreign Clubs will never take hold in the United States
With foreign clubs trying to open up chapters in the United States these are the reasons it will never work for them.
1. Have those foreign clubs officers even visited the country they want to open chapters up in? Probably not
2. Have those foreign club officers reached out to the 1%er chapters of the United States M/C’s in their home country to set some meetings up in the states with their potential chapter and the 1%er club in the states? Probably not
3. Did they put the potential chapter through a hang-around period or at least a prospective period before awarding a full chapter status? If not, you will end up with a guy like Cunningham who can bounce from one club or another with no issues. From what I’ve seen, Hell no
4. Although the Foreign Club might be a powerhouse in their country. Their name don’t mean shit here in the United States. They’ve done nothing to get respect here in the United States so don’t expect the sea to be parted when your patch shows up in the states.
5. Finally, you foreign clubs appoint National Presidents. You never appoint a National President in the United States because then you have them going all over the internet trying to start chapters all over the place and you end up looking like a bunch of fools.
What Foreign Clubs need to do if they want to start up in the states
If you’re starting something in this country there is a protocol to follow just like any other club. Reason why it might be good to get the conversation going in your own country with clubs that are from the United States
DO NOT APPOINT A NATIONAL PRESIDENT– If you want to get a foothold here in the United States and still keep a good Reputation, worry about prospecting one chapter. Let that chapter build up over time, see if they can last 5 years and grow. If one chapter cannot make the grade then how you going to appoint someone National President to get other chapters growing when they cannot even build their own?
All you foreign clubs want to take over the United States. Want to duplicate what you have in your own country. THATS NOT GOING TO HAPPEN, plain and simple. Even if the proper steps are followed ( Just like when your clubs started in the 60’s) it will take decades, NOT a YEAR, to replicate what you have back home. If you’re not willing to let time be your guide then your just putting your reputation on the line. You will just end up with fools like Cunningham who bounce from one club or another.
Do not mail your patches or any club material!!!!! If your prospective chapter made it to full chapter status, have an officer from your country come out here to give the patches, or vise versa have them go to you. Make it known if your bylaws are not followed, then you will be sending someone out to collect the property. Just don’t go on the internet and say someone is out bad and not collect your shit.
If your club is dead set on multiple chapters in the states, then issue Charters, maintain control from your home country instead of making some idiot National President who will do nothing but screw everything up for you. Your club, in this instance, was started in Australia. Maintain full control of these charters from Australia, make sure these charters are not out there on the internet asking for members, especially if your a 1%er club cause it makes you look stupid as hell. Any self respecting club member will walk away from the club as soon as the internet is used for recruitment.
To Sum it up
Personally, I don’t think Foreign Clubs like the Rebels or Comancheros have much chance for success in the United States. Right now they are being looked at like a a bunch of pop-clubs because the way they are going about getting started here in the States. The quality of people they are recruiting and use of the internet to spread chapters around the country just makes your club look stupid and will never get respect.
Here in the States people go to the 1%er clubs to seek membership. The reason why that is the case? Because that respect grew over time , the club worked on building it’s reputation and the membership they took in. The club made sure it’s standards of membership was high, invoked a process of choosing it’s membership that would make sure it was hard to get involved in the club and thus gain a favorable reputation of being the club to join. It wasn’t the internet that grew the clubs here in the states into powerhouses. It was the ground work and dedication to the clubs idea and purpose that did that.
I will say this over and over again. The internet is a great tool to recruit for your riding club. Riding clubs are nothing like a true motorcycle club. Everyone knows a riding club is like a social club, it’s there for people to get together and ride with no commitments.
A motorcycle clubs is on a whole different level. These are people that you will consider your family, people expected to be there for you when times get hard, you cannot possibly think that the internet will produce the type of people you will need for your club. If you do, then I can bet ya a million dollars the club will fail. But hey, it’s your club and reputation on the line, this is just my thoughts, do what you think is best for you.
Musclebound and riding gold-plated motorcycles, Australia’s most dangerous gang have made a bold statement about “growing stronger and stronger” in New Zealand.
There have been 14 patched members of the Comancheros – whose former president Mick Hawi was gunned down in cold blood this week – deported to New Zealand under harsh immigration laws introduced in Australia.
They are among the hundreds of deportees, nicknamed “501s” because of the section of the immigration law created by Australian politician Peter Dutton, removed on “good character” grounds and sent to New Zealand where they were born.
For several years, the police have warned of how these “Kiwis” – many of whom had lived in Australia for all their lives – would return to commit crimes and bolster the professionalism of the New Zealand underworld.
But their bitter rivals, the Comanchero MC, have officially made their presence known in new photographs obtained by the Herald on Sunday.
Police say the establishment of a New Zealand chapter of motorcycle gang, considered the most dangerous in Australia, is “concerning” and anticipate the Comancheros could cause friction with other gangs.
Wearing the black and gold colours of the outlaw club which state “Comanchero New Zealand, six members are standing beside, or sitting on, gold-plated motorcycles in a series of photographs posted on social media.
“All done and sworn in…welcome aboard to my brothers in New Zealand,” says the Instagram post by an Australian member of the Comancheros.
“Another Comanchero chapter opened up. We growing stronger and stronger.
