I’ve been asked about what I hate hearing the most. I’ve got to say the #1 thing has to be, “why can’t we all get along and stop the fighting between motorcycle clubs?” You want to know what bugs the hell out of me when I see that in comment sections on our platforms? The fucking people making those remarks are not even in a damned motorcycle club!
What damned right does anyone have to say that if they are not in a motorcycle club? What does the beef between clubs have to do with you? I truly believe people think that their opinions are going to change what’s happening in the scene. Truth is, your opinions don’t mean a damned thing! My opinions don’t mean a damn thing when it comes to politics between clubs.
History people, learn your damn history if you’re going to comment on something. People need to educate themselves on a subject if they want to put their opinion out for the world to see.
Doesn’t everyone think it’s time for people to shut the fuck up!
One of the things that people need to realize, particular motorcycle clubs have a long history of back and forth with other clubs. These motorcycle clubs in the news have lost brothers to prison, and many have lost brothers who died for their clubs. Again, what right do you have to interject your thoughts, when yourself are not a part of the scene? Maybe it’s time for you to take your opinions and go sit in a corner because no one gives a damn what you think.
Another place I’ve found these types of people are on protocol pages, you know the ones who teach motorcycle club protocol and such. First off, I’ve said this over and over again, protocol can only be learned in person. You cannot possibly learn anything about the subject from people on the internet. This is the main reason I cover biker news and other subjects bikers should be involved with.
You’re not helping yourself at all trying to learn from protocol pages or Facebook Groups.
You don’t need to join a stupid ass Facebook group to learn what being a biker is all about. This is especially true with particular groups run by an out bad pos, who hasn’t ridden a motorcycle in over a decade. How in the hell would anyone learn anything from an idiot like that? This one particular group, one I will not mention, has an idiot like I just described. Dude uses a fucking walker for christ sakes and had a bitch hand in his colors because he was a straight up bitch. Again, are you going to go up to a member and say, “well, this guy on Facebook, who was put out bad, says this is the way it’s done?” If you do that, you’re going to get an ass-kicking!
People need to stop being so damned gullible. These people feed on attention and will do whatever they can to reel you in. It’s amazing just how many people get themselves involved with these people and groups. Bikers are not made online, they are made by actually getting out there and riding.
What are you doing to make the lifestyle better, since you have all these opinions?
One of the first things I ask someone when they make a comment about clubs getting along. What have you done to make our lifestyle better? Are you a member of ABATE, MRF or any other group advancing bikers? 99% of the time the answer is a straight up NO!
Everything bikers used to stand for, Respect Honor and Loyalty, has become a novelty. Fucking RUBS and politically correct assholes have taken over. Worst of all, think they know something about things going on. True to form of a RUB, getting involved in some shit they know nothing about. Instead of commenting on why clubs cannot get along, take your asses down the highway! Take that 50 mile ride and put your bike in the garage and play biker on the net, because you sure the hell ain’t mattering to me or anyone else.
Try doing, instead of trying to dictate to people who’ve live this life 24 hours a day
If you want your opinion to matter, get your ass up and go do something. Don’t be the one who wants to bitch while others are out doing the work for YOU!
People who feel motorcycle clubs should drop their rivalries then go out and preach it on the streets. Don’t sit behind a computer and comment on posts. Put some work in and make a difference. How about you join a motorcycle club and try to change the culture if you think it’s so easy?
The moral of the story, people who live this lifestyle day in and day out are tired of the wannabes. I get it, you like riding motorcycles and want to matter. Why not just continue being a motorcycle enthusiast and call it a day? Keep your opinions to yourself, especially on something you know nothing about, and just go on a freaking ride!
