respect from the band to the 1% culture. I got my shirt directly from the band, as thanks for working their stage. If you didn’t look it up, I’ll help you. It’s a rocker design, and a neat one at that. In my case, even given the credibility the shirt came with (I got it from the band for god’s sake), there are places I’ll wear it and places I won’t. You might see me at bike night in it, but I won’t wear it to the next SYLSOS BBQ, because I know better, and they know I know better. This all sounds like a lot of work, but it’s worth it. Many have learned the hard way, and it’s just so easy. You’ve read before in my column that I find it very easy to get along with clubs if you remember the basics. Respect their patch and territory, their members, their motorcycles and most of all their wives and family. If you invite them to a charity event, you might just be astounded at the numbers they’ll turn out with, and the contributions they’ll make. We’ve all got one big thing in common, we love to ride. So there you have it, the basics of forming a small motorcycle organization. Once you’ve got one, the sky’s the limit with what you can do to further our mutual cause. You can ride in parades to spread the message, adopt a mile of highway and clean up while displaying pro-motorcycle safety signs, you can do outreach in your community and help fallen motorcyclists and their families, etc. There is plenty to be done, and the more of us that are out there protesting distracted driving, helping military families and other charitable causes the better we can bring out message home- START SEEING MOTORCYLES!
