    First the rant.

    One of the guys and I went to pick up his new bike 2 days ago, we were talking and texting back and forth yesterday about driving both my bike and his bike up to Hawk's nest again today. About 7ish last night the vice Pres called both of us and told us we weren't allowed to go up there without the whole motorcycle club going. We got into it big time and I told him that I would dang well go where I please, when I please. Needless to say none of the other members backed me and I did the right thing. As my wife and passed the club house this am I left my patches there and continued on up to the Nest by our selves.

    It was a great and beautiful trip and I think my wife was relieved that it was just us. Anyway they have been trying to get ahold of me all day and I haven't even thought about giving them the dignity to reply. NO ONE AND I MEAN NO ONE tells me where and when I can use my bike, they didn't pay for it and their name isn't on the title. RANT OVER

    Now my question about patches. I'm blank and want just a few small patches for the front, nothing on the back.

    Which side do I put the American flag and would there be any others small patches that anyone would recommend, at least something to cover the old needle holes from the patches.

    I'd suggest not wearing any patches. Since you asked.[​IMG]

    Nobody is going to read them out on the highway, they'll just assume you are either in a motorcycle gang of some sort, or a wannabee.

    Just enjoy riding without trying to impress folks. Freedom.

    http://www.hotleathers.com/motorcycle-patches.aspx just google patch retailers and patch images on google

    many of us love to hear the back and front story of the club n you, is it a support club? Do they pay dues to a one percenter club operate in a 1 percenter area, ?

    I just learned of the extorted money one percenters make the other clubs pay. Its bad enough what the govt extorts, yesterday I got my projected house tax bill im still crying. Will they leave me alone if I don't wear the county patch? Think not. And I do like govt services but darn always going up.

    This is the oddest thread I've ever read. Why would you not just ride your motorcycle when & where you want?

    As you mentioned riding to the Hawk's Nest, are you talking that stretch of rt. 97 outside of Port Jervis, NY? What club are you a member of? I know that there are chapters of HA, Mongols, Pagans, and a few other smaller clubs. If you are a member of any of the clubs I mentioned, you should know their by-laws state you cannot ride just anywhere, any time you want, especially if you are wearing your patch. As for just taking off your patch and leaving it in front of the clubhouse, again, if you are a member of any of the mentioned clubs, good luck.

    I thought part of the attraction to riding was a freedom of going places and enjoying the path there. If want a patch on a jacket, knock yourself out and have at it. To me, MCs are like fraternities for men going through a mid-life crisis or thugs who need other thugs to back them up.

    When I see motorcycle patches I just assume they are gangsta thug and I make sure I am carrying my defensive firearm. It is similar to Travon Martin and him wearing a hoodie.

    So the club told you that you couldn't ride somewhere with your patches, or that you couldn't ride somewhere period? Seems a little controlling to me. All I can say is that I hope you aren't part of a serious mc or else you might have some problems with just leaving your patches and refusing to return their calls.

    Strange thread. I can't imagine needing permission from another adult to do something like ride a motorcycle.

    Eh - I'm part of a "riders association" that has a 3 piece patch and we aren't gangsters. We contribute to charity and the widows and orphans of master masons. We just raised $2000 for the Down syndrome association and we will be riding our bikes in formation to start their charity walk in October. Don't always judge a book by its cover.

    I hope there are no Prius clubs like this or I am in trouble.
