Iron Order- We can take AOA and all 1%ers


By: James”Topfuel”Macecari

Speaking about the AOA, current club vice president Mike “Cgar” Crouse wrote “I know our club has the advantage. One percenters won’t call the cops. So what the fuck!? Destroy any fucker that confronts you. It’s a free ticket…if they can…..We have put fuckers in the hospital. You know very well if a MC got their ass handed to them by the IO they will do what they have to…to lie about it.” (Source Aging Rebel)

The current National President of the Iron Order Motorcycle Club thinks it has an advantage over the Outlaws M/C. This past week in Oklahoma, a member of the Rednecks Motorcycle Club was arrested, he was in a shoot out with 2 Iron Order Members. Of Course, no Iron Order Members were arrested because they are a cop club, they claim self-defense every time an altercation occurs.

By the Iron Orders Vice-Presidents Statement it looks like the Iron Order thinks the AOA will just stand by and get walked on, is this the case? Are the Outlaws M/C backing down from a mail order, cop club? The murder of a Black Piston, which was ruled a self-defense shooting by ACAB has yet to be resolved in the motorcycle underworld, it does indeed seem that a pass was giving to these weekend warriors. It will be interesting to see how this all plays out in Oklahoma, the Rednecks are an AOA support club.

Is the Iron Order actually targeting Outlaws and affiliates? Personally, I think the Iron Order is barking up the wrong tree, it takes only time before something comes back and bites you in the ass. The Outlaws are one of the oldest motorcycle clubs, 1%er clubs in the United States, many go through hell and back to get into the brotherhood, AOA is known for taking care of business and think it’s pretty damn stupid for Iron Order to think they can take on AOA.

First off the Iron Order depend totally on protection from their fellow cum sucking ACAB’s. They are a mail order club, they loose more members each time an incident goes down with a 1%er club. Why is that? Well, I think those who wanted to play Jax Teller found out it isn’t all that fun in real life. When you start to become targeted, you just can’t quite get over the feeling of looking over your shoulders. The Iron Order mail in member found out that bullets flying aren’t all that cool.

Another disadvantage the Iron Order has, the entire biker population can’t stand the candy asses. Who the hell wants to be associated with the Iron Order? Everyone knows the AOA are stand up, have history and can assure you, know how to TCB. See Cgar, you’re barking up the wrong tree, you really think your mail order bitches can take on the 1% world? First you fags got into it with AOA, then Bandidos, Hells Angels, and most recently the Mongols. Personally, I think the Mongols was a huge mistake on your part, but hey it’s your party. But the point here is, you idiots have united major 1%er clubs, ones that really never had anything in common until now. All the Majors and NCOM clubs can’t stand IRON ORDER.

You be “FUCKED”, I would recommend getting those mail order patches moving, better have some kind of sale, need to recruit those members.

I believe the whole biker world is watching what will become of Iron Order. Does the 1%er clubs band together and end these pukes? Or does the Iron Order get to continue to run around wild, making accusations and hurting the image of every club out there? This is the test, does the 1%er clubs of old still live by rules that demanded respect? Has the motorcycle club culture changed from what it use to be? Again only time will tell, never before has clubs consisted of cops, it’s a new territory for sure. But ask yourself, does the poor little piggy get a pass when he is out there acting like someone he is charged to bust whenever possible? Do the cops get to play both sides of the fence without facing the same penalties others would on the streets?

Tough questions to be considered, after all, our lifestyle has changed much, no longer is it a full-time lifestyle as it was to many of us back in the day. Now the lifestyle has been taking over by politically correct RUBS, ACABS. Thanks, Sons of Anarchy and Harley Davidson marketing, you really screwed up a lifestyle all in the span of a decade or so.

Harley Davidson on the Ropes-News not good


By: James “Topfuel”Macecari

Harley Davidson is on the ropes. Is the Motor Company  starting to loose its grip on the market? According to many financial news sites, Harley Davidson is starting to cook the books, well continue to do so as it has so many times in the past.

“How many times will Harley-Davidson use this tactic to make its sales numbers? To me it’s suspect, and investors should be wary that things might continue to get worse before they get better.” (Source Motley Fool)

What is Harley-Davidson doing  shipping an overabundance of motorcycles to the dealerships, what could be wrong with that? Plenty, that’s because the dealerships still have an overstock of inventory they still haven’t sold. In essence, Harley-Davidson is cooking the books, this so the stock price doesn’t drop off. Why would this concern investors? If the company isn’t selling bikes, the company is losing financial strength and no longer a good investment.

I wrote “Harley- Davidson: No Longer King -Company in trouble” a few weeks back. Many were upset about some of the points that were made in the article, some were trying to give Harley-Davidson legitimacy, saying that “Harley has over 50% of the market share, they can never lose the title.” Others claimed I was bashing Harley-Davidson because I worked for the competition. No, in truth I’m just an independent blogger who rides a Harley -Davidson. No Conspiracy stuff against the company.

Harley-Davidson is in a position right now that mirrors the position they were in before the AMF sale. Strong market share, loyal customer base, and most important, being steered into the ground by corporate greed. Look closely when you walk into a dealership, what do you see? Most of a dealership facility is dedicated to clothing and accessories, be honest now, how many square feet of your local dealership is dedicated to actual motorcycle sales? How much of the sales floor is overstocked with used inventory compared to new inventory? Those observations can be very telling, the dealerships are making more money on used models then new. The market has become flooded with used products, meaning the new stuff has to wait.

This is the issue that Harley is trying to hide from investors ,when you don’t have an uptick in sales from the previous year, especially with it being quarter after quarter, people start to panic. Add the fact that Harley now has an American Company in Polaris (Whom already has a serious reputation in outdoor sports), strong competition from overseas companies like Honda, Yamaha, the market share starts to shrink. People no longer care about the “If you don’t ride a Harley, you’re not a biker”, individuals care only about personal preference and comfort, not an image.

All the news organizations that are experts in the field of financials say the same thing, Harley has to move from its pricing structure.

“But Harley’s been bucking the trend, refusing to give up the premium it charges for its bikes for the sake of market share. And as the past year proved, it lost share to rivals, even though it still does own almost half of the big-bike market.” (Source Motley Fool )

Notice it states, “Big-Bike Market”. This is a distinction that was lost on my last article. Many do not understand that it is only a class of bikes that  corners the market, it’s only one aspect of the motorcycle market. Why do you think Harley-Davidson came out with the smaller Sportster? Most of the market are not looking for a Bagger, they are not looking for a Fatboy, they are looking for a reliable bike to get around the city in, after all, most bikes are sold in major cities and suburbs.

15-hd-cvo-street-glide-1

What is my opinion on what Harley needs to do? First return to customer service, get the dealerships to rid employees thinking that if you’re not in there to buy a 20,000 bike, you must not be worth the attention. I hate going into dealerships for anything, I always go to the small independent shop, just because of that type of attitude. Another thing I would suggest is to concentrate on making something new, bring out a new class, change the line up a bit like they did with the 550s, and 750s. Finally, get back to your original customer base, the ones who stuck with you all these years, get the prices of the bikes back where the working man can afford them. Those suggestions are what most people who love the company want, something as simple as those suggestions could get Harley back on track. Will they do it? Probably not, they are now indebted to the RUBS and other investors.

Iron Order – Shootout in Oklahoma


By James”Topfuel”Macecari

Iron Order is at it again, this time, near Kickapoo Casino in Harrah.
Redneck Rough Riders and the Iron Order were involved in the incident at a gas station this past weekend (2-18-16). This is just a few weeks after a corrections officer for the State of Colorado in an Iron Order rag shot and killed a member of the Mongols M/C. (Source News)

The Iron Order looks to be trying to up its rep on the street by taking on legitimate motorcycle clubs, one has to wonder when the Iron Order will finally pay the piper? For a club, that states on its website, “We are a Law Abiding Club”, it sure is hard to believe by its actions. When will the Midwest Gang Unit finally get off their asses and bring justice? They claim that anyone wearing a three piece patch is nothing more than a gang member, what about their buddies in blue trying to play Outlaw and shooting everything up? Where is the RICO Charges? Where is the harassment? Oh yea, they have pigs in the club so they get a pass.

29906170001_4269316252001_thumb-Buzz60video9144198726366167295

I believe that the National Confederation of Clubs needs to come together and find a common solution to these punks in blue, time for all the clubs to put aside all the other problems and unite against these so-called “Law Abiding Individuals”. Iron Order will continue its current behaviour until they are shown their ways are not in conjunction with the rest of the biker world. Time for promoters and event organizers make sure that Iron Order is not welcome at any events, after all, it’s almost certain with Iron Orders members showing up to events where other clubs are at, problems will always go down because Iron Order thrives on causing problems.

In my opinion nothing will rise out of this latest incident, you will have the pigs crying self-defense and their buddies covering up for them. It will be just one more incident to Iron Orders list of issues its cause the “Real MC World”. Citizens will start seeing these punks running around causing problems, they will lump them into all motorcycle clubs, the real MCs will then have the image problem cause of Iron Order. It isn’t bad enough that MC members get profiled just riding down the road, now they have to deal with the crap they had nothing to do with in the first place.

I Find it funny that these so-called “Bad Boys” are so tough on the street, but just these past week they were crying to Facebook about being “Cyber Bullied”, all anti-Iron Order Pages were taken down a cause of this. You really have to wonder how any of them people would put on an Iron Order Patch, they got the patch mail order, they didn’t have to earn it, but they still wonder why people cannot stand them. Inviting cops into your club are one big no, but damn, at least, have enough respect for your club to do it the right way. Don’t go out there handing out patches to cops and people whom never earned them, what respect do you think you will ever get ?

A Victory V92C frozen-American Durability


By James “Topfuel” Macecari
A Victory V92C TC frozen into a block of ice four years ago has been thawed and restarted with a battery being the only new part needed.
Perhaps even more impressive: the bike had more than 186,000 miles on the clock.
The Victory motorcycle had been purchased by Sweden’s Icehotel and frozen into a block of ice in 2011. After four years, however, the hotel decided to set the block of ice out in the sun and let it thaw naturally. (Source Biker News Online).

Can we say “Made in America”? The V92C TC 2002 spent it’s whole life as a “Shaker” bike. These are the type of bikes the R&D Departments use to put their products through every scenario they will face on the road. It already had about 180,000 miles on it when it went to the deep freeze.

Harley now has a rival stepping up to the plate, days could be numbered when Harley starts to lose some market share to Polaris. Polaris is making some good business moves in the market, especially buying up the Indian brand, time will tell if that was a good move or not. Harley does have a few things going for it, the company has a very big following of customers that are die hard loyal, it built this base with fantastic and targeted marketing. This is something that Polaris has yet to achieve or understand, in order to win over the Harley market, they have to keep putting out a quality product, but also have to attach a legacy to their product someone wants to be a part of.

Polaris has some time to achieve a good market, it took Harley over 100 years to build its brand, Polaris is the new kid on the block and will need to learn hard lessons over time. One lesson that Polaris failed to do right off the bat with the Indian Brand, they didn’t establish a good nationwide dealership network, secondly, they overpriced the Indian. Most of the Indian models you can just go buy a Harley equivalent and have the piece of mind knowing a dealership is right down the road if helps needed.The Indian Brand has been through many hands in the past, it’s a historic scooter, just no one knew how to match Harleys message. Right now Polaris is the best chance the Indian brand has, it’s now backed up by a company with the money to do something with it. Many Indian fans are hoping for just that, make the Indian great again.

Meanwhile, Polaris launched the Victory model in 99. It was something ugly at first and I would never give it a second look back then. When Arlen Ness came aboard with Victory the Jackpot was introduced, now that was an American Ride. Now in 2016 Victory went back to its roots and started making space ships, well that’s what they look like anyway. No one wants to be seen on something as ugly as the Cross Country, come on really? Polaris is only beginning it’s business and repeating mistakes it made right out of the gate, people want a great looking ride, something that will get them some tail, not something they will get them beat up.

The engineering is there, Polaris has a great name in Off Road, they need to stick the money into the Victory Brand redesigning it to compete for market share with Harley. Without seriously investing in the brand it will eventually fade out, that’s something that could happen in only a few riding seasons.

Kudos for the Ice Project, that surely shows what American Workmanship can accomplish. But to make it in the USA market and especially take on a giant like Harley-Davidson, you have to step up to the plate wanting to hit a home run with the customer base, not and single or double. That’s a half-ass attempt that will always fail.

Open Letter To Harley-Big Changes Needed


By: James “Topfuel”Macecari

Harley has been “King of the Road” for 113 years, many of its competitors have come and went, it fought two World Wars, faced down a Great Depression. The list goes on and on what this great American Icon has wrestled with for the title “King of the Road”. Every kid growing up riding a bicycle at some point or another wanted that bicycle to be a Harley Davidson, I know when I was a kid I wanted mine to be, I use to look up to the Bikers that lived on my street in amazement.

Harley has changed with the times since it’s inception, it taught the masses what American quality and workmanship were all about, most of all Harley taught all of us what is was about to be American. Every generation found something in different when experiencing a ride on a Harley Davidson. They found freedom, adventure, pride and most of all a brotherhood and sisterhood that is unmatched by any other brand. Let’s just say that Honda, though it might be a good bike, don’t carry the same pride as someone who owns a Harley Davidson.

Now don’t get your panties all in a bind, Harley isn’t the only good bike out there. Sure Victory, Indian, Honda and even Yamaha has some good models out there, but take a double look when one rides by and see where the design all started from. The V-Twin and road design all came from Harley, they do say the best form of flattery is when someone duplicates a good idea.

With all the good Harley-Davidson has done for this country and it’s customers, it still has some work to be done in the modern age. The new generation of biker is not the same core customer base Harley use to depend on. Old timers were just happy getting out in the wind and tearing up the asphalt, today’s generation is more sophisticated thanks to an overabundance of technology and expectations. Harley was able to catch onto the accessories market, they made it a point to involve aftermarket companies into the mix, which was a fine decision to do, especially since those accessories sell bikes.

In my opinion, though the company has relied too heavily on the clothing and accessories market. I believe that the company needs to put more into development of new models, yes the lines out there are the ones we have grown to love, why not try what Ford and Chevy have done? Bring back some nostalgia to the mix with today’s technology. Now I know companies like S&S make the Shovelhead knockoffs, but what if Harley came out with a special edition FLH with a brand new Shovelhead design? Talk about a scooter flying off the showroom floor.

Could you imagine if Harley brought back a Panhead or Knucklehead design with current technology? These are idea’s that can get the stagnant sales moving again at Harley, plus it would put pressure on the other manufacturers like Indian and Victory to up their game. This competition would not only be good for Harley but for bikers as well, let’s face it Harley and the others are starting to price out the core buyers.

maxresdefault

Pricing is another issue Harley needs to seriously work on, especially with the talk of another recession looming. It is true Harley is an investment now, unlike the days where you could pick one up for a few thousand dollars, but when you start pricing too high then you run the risk of oversaturation in the used market and you can’t sell new.

One other issue that really needs to be dealt with by the company is their dealerships, the customer service in most of the dealerships is god awful unless you are a part of their HOG chapter. The company is finally campaigning for a more inclusive female presence and you have the dealerships treating any women walking through the door like some idiot, I’ve seen that one myself. Most of all the dealerships need to educate their employees on the product when I go up to the parts counter to order something I expect the employee to know what the hell I’m talking about, not give some dumb look.

I’m hopeful Harley can make some positive changes to the company, after all, this is a company that sprung an entire lifestyle. The company was great this whole time leading up to today, but does it have the leadership to recognize some of the issues it has to take it into the future? Only time will tell.

Iron Order M/C Cry to Facebook: We are being cyber bullied


There have still been no charges filed against Iron Order Motorcycle Club hit man Derrick “Kong” Duran. Duran shot and killed one member of the Mongols Motorcycle Club and seriously wounded another at the Colorado Motorcycle Exposition in Denver on January 30.Source Aging Rebel

Yesterday, complaints from Iron Order members convinced Facebook to remove a couple of what the Iron Order calls “hater pages.” The pages were “IOMC The Real Truth 2” and “I Think Iron Order Sucks Too.” Source Aging Rebel

You have to love the Aging Rebel. They get the best information on what is going on within the Biker Community. I like to thank you over there because you always give me some good shit to blog about, especially when it comes to the wannabees over at Iron Order M/C.

Today we get to talk about the idiots of a so-called motorcycle club filled with cops, if you’re wondering why Derrick “Kong” Duran didn’t get charged in the Denver shooting, it’s because he’s a corrections officer. Yep you heard it right he works for the State of Colorado as a pig inside the joint. It’s this reason alone that he has not been charged, even though he was photographed running up the stairs with the gun in his hand and no one around him was armed.

2016-02-01_14-09-48

Well, looks like after the shooting the mainstream media have stepped up their critique on why cops are trying to act like bikers, the ones they work so very hard to bust and harass all the time. It also looks like the Iron Order is having it’s feelings hurt all over social media, in response they have complained to Facebook that they are getting cyber bullied. Yes, you heard it right, a motorcycle club is complaining it’s getting cyber bullied. They fear for their lives lol.

By now I know most reading this is shaking their heads saying “What the Fuck”, you know with that stupid look a dog gives you when you’re acting a fool. I’ve been riding for 30 years and nothing like this has ever been heard of. A suppose motorcycle club crying that it is being bullied. “People are making fun out of us mommy!” I’ve heard of everything nowadays being politically correct, but come on really?

Iron Order has done nothing for the Biker Lifestyle but gives it a big black eye, everything from pictures on the internet with members on their knees simulating sucking a guy off, to crying to a dam internet site about being bullied. Really come on. How is people even a member of an organization like this?

We all have to thank Iron Order, for one thing, they have united clubs all across the world. They have disgraced what a motorcycle club is about, they have dishonored the meaning of brotherhood, most of all they brought cops into their club. Was this on purpose? Seems to be the case, they knew once they started out that they would need cover from the cops because they intended to disrespect all the clubs out there. They have screwed with the Red and White, Black and White, Gold and Red, a big mistake. Sooner or later someone is going to get hurt or even killed over the antics.

da3b94400f8c4c997482df83f0e91e4c

When the Iron Order screwed around in Denver and Killed a Mongol they stirred a wasp nest. This incident you can bet was the last draw for a lot of the clubs out there. The old saying goes “You can only play with fire until you get burned”. Iron order played with a 3 alarm blaze this time. What sad about this whole situation, these asses are recruiting off the internet, people who do not know any better is going to search them out and try and join them. After all, it’s pretty simple to get a patch in the mail. People will see it as an opportunity to join a club with some television coverage, Iron Order won’t warn these people the dangers they will be facing putting on that patch, won’t tell them they are blacklisted in the motorcycle world.

Hopefully, I can reach those people through this article, warn them to find a legit club to prospect for or just to hang around. If you think that being apart of a club is just the patch on your back, your wrong. Putting on a patch for these people will only get you hurt, you might be the coolest person, the sad truth is these asses at Iron Order will get you hurt. Being a part of an M/C is not getting a patch online, years and years of traditions are in effect on the streets, some held very dearly to many. Iron Order is a recipe for disaster, after all, do you really want to wear a patch of a club that gets cyber bullied?
