Biker Gang question

Since it got buried in another thread I figured i would start one devoted to this.

For the hells angels or outlaws, does anyone have any idea what kinds of initiation they have to go through? In all seriousness. I have wondered this for sometime.

Ride naked somewhere, piss on an opposing club member's bike, steal something? What?

I really doubt it is something like show up, make a friend and you are a member. I would think there is something involved.

Someone has to have heard rumors or know someone on this.

You don't "join" a 1% club like you join the AMA. Think about what you're asking for a while. Clubs like you mentioned are a group of like minded "brothers", willing to fight, do time, or die for a brother. You don't just act badass in their presence and automatically get in. It's not like Hollywood.

actually the 1%ers are the section of the hells angels who have killed someone for the club. those are the truest badasses of the bunch. to be in the hells angels or outlaws, everyone doesnt have to kill someone. Since they are the rarest of the bunch, that is why they are called the 1%ers.

And I know it isnt like hollywood. I was in a fraternity. We have secret rituals and I would fight to stand up for one of my brothers. I am just looking at the aspects of getting into the clubs. It isnt easy to get in but I know that it isnt as difficult as killing someone.

If you do get in, plan on putting some miles on the bike. I remember marveling at my buddy when he got a phone call one afternoon. Moments later he was suiting up and hitting the road for Memphis! (some kind of trouble that they needed to get down there for...)

Gotta admire that kind of dedication/loyalty. Then again, you also gotta wonder what it's like to ride through the night just to pick a fight with someone you've never met...

I admire the idea, I question the application. Personally I think the "spirit" of the 1%ers was lost when they started dealing drugs. Same thing happened to the mob. Can't argue that it's easy money - but it lacks the purity of the original idea if you ask me.

1%'er was actually a term coined by the AMA. After the 1940's Hollister, CA so called "riot" , which was actually an AMA get together, they said the trouble was caused by 1% of the bikers there. When the clubs heard this they started mocking the AMA by calling themselves 1%'ers. They're very proud of that 1% patch. It doesn't come easy.

Go to Sonny Barger's web site if you want some history.

This thread explains a lot.

I knew this really, really nice guy who was a conductor on a Metra train. He was a member of the Outlaws, and would invite me to their annual fall parties.

One day, I realized that I had not seen him on the train for many months, and I had a bad feeling that it wasn't just that they had changed his shift.

I saw him again, months later, looking a little thinner (he was a competition bodybuilder years back). He said he got a phone call and went to "pick up a friend from a bar" He said that when he went to the bar, someone opened fire on him, shooting him a few times in the stomach. He was rushed to the hospital, went out once in the OR, and by some miracle, was revived, they took all but one of the bullets out...he went through the necessary recovery processes/rehab, and now was back at work.

No thanks! The worse thing CLSB ever made me do was go to Hooters too much or ride those gay mini motos.

Hey Hawkeye, I thinking of starting a club.

It goes like this:

Initiation dues are only $20,
initiation rites: I punch you in the face and kick you in the crotch
and last but not least, you find 2 other recruits and repeat the process with them, but I get half of your initiation member recruitment fees (plus theirs) up until a certain member headcount

easy ain't it?

alright...who else wants to join?

I considered creating some motorcycle 'club' just for this aspect. You create a cool name, which turns into a forum, logo, ect...then you charge for membership and sell products with your logo on it. You could recruit posers by the dozens and make a fortune.


I'm still seriously consider doing this
