Growing up a Son of an Outlaw Part 2: Prospecting


After my dad died I continued working at the strip club, I also took a part-time job with a club member who owned a motorcycle shop. The club had a rule, a person had to be 21 to prospect. Just because I was what the club called a “Legacy” didn’t mean I would be able to get around that rule. The club thrived for so long because of its by-laws, without them, the club would’ve fallen apart, a motorcycle club is only as strong as its bylaw enforcement.

The years were long, but I learned more and more from the guys, the club became my University. Don’t get me wrong now, just because I wasn’t 21, I was still considered a hang around and expected to be around the clubhouse. I usually worked Monday thru Saturday, both at the strip club and bike shop, throw in having to be at the clubhouse every night, my life was pretty well planned out day to day. I was happy with the life, some would’ve bitched and complained about all the hours, not me, I saw it as an education and a way to be around all the guys.44321_4531348323578_90144081_n

I never really had a steady ol lady, working at the strip club, I always had my pick of who I wanted that night. The Strippers were all over me because I had Roosters ear, it also helped that I was pretty dam built and handsome. Having two or more strippers a night wasn’t out of the norm, it was actually kind of cool, the brothers in the club always hung around to get a taste. I did get close to a stripper nicknamed “Stormy”, she was 20, not much older than me. Stormy would stay the night all the time, we were able to talk and laugh, the other bitches were just there to party and play. Stormy was different, if she disagreed with you, you would know. She wasn’t a player, I was the only one she would sleep with, something that was amazing considering she was a dancer.

Those hang around years taught me a lot about myself and who I could trust. I got the unique perspective that most would never see, all those my age going to college and getting raped on student loans to learn nothing about life anyway.

Finally, the night of my 21st birthday came. It’s a night that I will never forget. After getting off work at the shop I was told I had to be down at the clubhouse, so when work got over I jumped on my 87 sporty and rode on over. It was about 8 at night when I got there, the parking lot was packed, the club was having a party and had all the friendly clubs there. When I got into the door, one of the prospects directed me to the bunk room. No one was in there, I was told to take a seat and Rooster would be right in. After about 15 minutes Rooster and a few of the other guys came in and sat down. As soon as everyone got into the room, Rooster pulled out a vest and threw it at me, it was something that I’d been waiting for for years. The next words that Rooster spoke I would never forget. “You have 2 choices now, your either going to die young, or your going to spend lots of time in prison once you put that vest on”. I didn’t blink, I threw that vest right on. My birthday celebration was short lived, as soon as I out the vest on Rooster said: “Now get your ass behind the bar and earn it you piece of shit”. Yep no breaks for me.

Prospecting that year was no easy thing, the brothers ran me into the ground, I can remember long nights let me tell you. Prospecting for a true 1%er club is no joke. Now a days everyone watches that bullshit Sons of Anarchy and thinks of the brotherhood in those terms, shit you have wannabee clubs popping up on a daily basis. You know why those clubs were formed? It’s because them fools didn’t have the balls or guts to prospect for an established club. They didn’t choose to put pride in themselves, that’s why most of them clubs only last a year or two because true brotherhood doesn’t exist within its ranks.

Whats a biker? Whats the lifestyle mean?


By James “Topfuel”Macecari

“To thine own self-be true, and it must follow, as the night the day, thou canst not then be false to any man.”

What a powerful quote if any can be said, especially in this day and age. What’s lacking in the lifestyle? What has it become? Why all the focus on something that many just take for granted? These are the many questions that most hardcore scooter tramps have been asking since the mid 90’s. I also figure those questions can’t just be limited to the lifestyle now that I think about it, what has happened to men in this day and age? Where has honor and loyalty gone? Take a step back and really look hard what this country has become, are we really that scared to stand up for what’s right and wrong anymore? Good questions to ponder over a good blunt I’m thinking lol.

If you’ve been in this lifestyle more than say 20 years, things have really changed and become really screwed up. Cops now openly running around wearing 3 piece patches, the new generation of club members or people coming into the lifestyle, in general, is screwed up. No, you do not have to be in a club to be a biker, independents actually make up most of the population of the lifestyle. What I do remember is that men were men, we kept our word to each other, we stood our ground on things we believed to be right, you can’t really find those things anymore in this new generation. Things today are more of an act than a lifestyle for most, shit I know some women that are more honorable than some men in this lifestyle, that’s pretty bad because in my day women were stuck on the back of a scooter and mouth shut.

Do I ever think that the lifestyle will get back to its roots? No, because the new generation has been raised a hell of a lot different than those of generations of the past. Hard work, dedication to one’s beliefs, loyalty to one’s brothers or sisters is gone, swept under the rug by a generation that was raised so politically correct it can make you sick just thinking about it.

One thing I do not understand most out there, is the need to act something they are not. Let’s take all these cop clubs for example. They took an oath when they received that badge, they swore to perform the job in which they chose. An oath to scooter tramps is something that binds us, something that we put every effort into, we strive to keep our word, our dignity. This is something cop clubs do not understand the least bit. They believe because they wear that badge and were giving a little power they can do as they wish, invade a whole lifestyle that they for decades harassed, discriminated against and look at those in it as trash, criminals. So how is it all of a sudden they feel they should be accepted by those who lived through all the discrimination?

I hear many that are in sissy clubs like the Iron Order, Punishers or Blue Knights say that we served our country and it’s our right. I always take care in saying “Thanks for the Service” but who gives a god damn. Most of us scooter tramps served in every major war this country has ever fought, after leaving we wanted what we had in the service, thus the reason why the clubs starting popping up after ww2. We didn’t support those who were hell bent on harassing every brother and sister out there, that’s what you have in clubs like Iron Order and the punishers. You are knowingly associating with those who wouldn’t give a rats ass about you, especially if you realize they have the Blue Code and your not a part of that unless you wear that badge. You are associating yourself with people who over the years have gone out of their way to make the lives of hardworking people miserable, just because they dressed different or because of some bullshit the AMA pushed on everyone.

What is the meaning of the “Biker Lifestyle”? What does it mean to be a “Biker”? The old scooter tramps know the answers because they lived it, they breathed it and incorporated every aspect of their lives into what the lifestyle is about. Mind you that a club isn’t a condition on being considered a biker, Independents actually make up the bulk of the biker community. Yes, the image of the biker can arguably be tied to the MC world, but it doesn’t mean that is who you have to act like. Independents are some of the most fun brothers and sisters out there. They work their asses off during the week, jump on that scooter on the weekend and live life to the fullest. One of the biggest pet peeves I have personally is someone acting like something they are not.

So what do I mean when I say ” Don’t act like something you’re not”? Well to put it in basic terms here is an analogy. I would have more respect for a dude like that one in that wild hogs movie who got a tattoo of the apple symbol, then a dude walking around acting billy bad ass cause he just bought a new Harley and all the cute leathers to go with it. That’s not the lifestyle and it sure the hell isn’t being a biker. The whole idea of the lifestyle is to be who you are and not give a damn what others think. So why in the world act like something your not? Be true to yourself, Be true to the lifestyle in which you want to be a part of. It isn’t rocket science.

Has the Biker Lifestyle become PC?


By James”Topfuel”Macecari

“It is not the honor that you take with you, but the heritage you leave behind.”
Branch Rickey

Well after reading some of the comments on other posts, I just had to write and educate the crying little bitches who are claiming 1%ers are a bunch of bullies and thugs. Yes, the “Bully and Thugs Comment” is now being used in the biker lifestyle, the yuppies and wannabes have fully infiltrated the biker lifestyle. Like, are we all fucking teenagers now? Really the political correctness of the population is just sickening, if you have to cry that you are being bullied then maybe you should get out there on a damn moped.

1%ers have been the leaders in the biker lifestyle for decades, it was the 1%ers that took all the crap in the early years that has allowed you RUBS and LEOS to ride around acting like something that you are not. The only reason why you middle age fudgepackers want to dress up in leather and ride 30,000 bikes, is to act like those 1%ers you call thugs and bullies.

“This is America” or “I fought for this country and no one will tell me what patch to wear”. Plain and simple, your idiots in my opinion, for one you are uneducated blowhards when it comes to the club scene, Why? The club scene is something many men dedicate their entire lives too, they put in blood, sweat and tears for that patch they wear, the brotherhood they are a part of. In essence, “THEY EARN IT”. Now just because you may be a RUB or Weekend Warrior who don’t have the balls to join a real club, doesn’t make the rules change on the street just for you sweethearts. The internet is a funny thing, gives automatic balls to those who on the street are a bunch of punks who couldn’t fight their way out of a corner, so the internet has become the new mouthpiece to a bunch of fags who circle jerk each other on who is bigger and worse.

We’ve had a couple of Iron Order faggots on the site as of late crying and whining about how the whole club and lifestyle works, yea lol, Iron Order, there is a real faggot club. They claim they tried to mimic the way clubs were in the 50’s and 60’s, yes I just shook my head and laughed at that one. Where do they get that shit? Those decades were prime for the 1%er scene, these bunch of fags claim they don’t want to be like 1%ers, but then make a stupid statement like that. Which one is it? You either don’t want to be a 1%er (Probably because you can’t handle the prospect time) or you don’t? Yea it must be hard being apart of a so-called club that was founded by a former ATF agent.

Now who’s the blame for all the crap going on within the lifestyle? Well, I would have to bet on Harley-Davidson and Kurt Sutter, after all, the company has targeted middle age wannabees since the early 90’s, then you have Kurt Sutter come along and make the fake ass portrayal of club life in the Sons of Anarchy. Both are responsible for giving rubs and wannabees the balls to think that they can come into the lifestyle and change decades of tradition. The only thing that was cool about the SOA was the music, nothing was based on true facts of what a 1% club is all about, and by the way who kills off the main character the way he did? For one, no club would hold the dude responsible after a gun was being pulled, no matter the other circumstances. You really dropped the ball on that one Sutter, killed the whole series for all the wannabee clubs out there.

So why write an article such as this? Well, it’s time someone takes away all the wet dreams of those who just think they have a right to start up a club and wear a 3 piece patch, to ignore traditions going back decades. Those traditions were put in place just for fools like those who think they don’t have to put in the work, the dedication to be apart of something more than themselves. Most important, the 1% clubs don’t need fools running around acting stupid in public, drawing attention that doesn’t have to be the focus on the club life. See you bunch of wet dreams, when you’re wearing patches and terrorize the general public, they don’t see your pansy club, they see a major club and that sticks in their mind, next thing you know the damn cops are all over the wrong club.

Here is a word of advice, if you want to wear a 3 piece patch and be apart of a club, go out and find a legit one. Yes, it will be tough because you have all these posers running around out there, but look into your local COC, those clubs listed on that site or sites are legit. If a club isn’t a part of the COC, it’s more than likely it’s not a legit club and you’re just putting in valuable time that won’t pay off in the long run.

Gassy Granny Joke of the Day


At school, Little Johnny’s classmate tells him that most adults are hiding at least one dark secret, so it’s very easy to blackmail them by saying, “I know the whole truth.” Little Johnny decides to go home and try it out.

Johnny’s mother greets him at home, and he tells her, “I know the whole truth.” His mother quickly hands him $20 and says, “Just don’t tell your father.” Quite pleased, the boy waits for his father to get home from work, and greets him with, “I know the whole truth.” The father promptly hands him $40 and says, “Please don’t say a word to your mother.”

Very pleased, the boy is on his way to school the next day when he sees the mailman at his front door. The boy greets him by saying, “I know the whole truth.” The mailman immediately drops the mail, opens his arms, and says, “Then come give your Daddy a great big hug!”

What’s a Biker? What’s a Brother?


By James “Topfuel”Macecari

“We know what we are, but know not what we may be. ”
William Shakespeare

This quote by Shakespeare has to say it all, many in the biker world throw around the word “Brotherhood” or “Brother” like it’s just another word, my suspicion is most don’t have a clue what any of those words means or stand for. Today in this lifestyle, you have more posers and wannabees then true hardcore individuals, no you don’t have to ride in a club to be a true biker, you have to know what integrity and honor mean to come close. I don’t know if it’s just me or if it’s society and the type of people it’s producing, most have to agree that people now are nowhere near the integrity that was produced in the old days.

So what is the meaning according to me? What is a biker? Well the biggest thing that comes to mind for me is hard work. A person has to get their ass out of bed in the morning, get to work and be productive, all these kids or young adults, they will be 30 years old and still live at home with mommy and daddy, what kind of shit is that? I myself was out on the street playing the game at 16, out of the folks house at 18, one thing I knew is I had to work my ass off for everything I had, let me tell ya, it wasn’t much either. A biker never sits there looking for handouts, they go out there every day working for what they got, they sure the hell don’t depend on someone doing it for them.

Another quality I look for is Integrity. Integrity is something that doesn’t exist anymore, shit most people don’t know how to stand behind anything they say, always about running the game and hustle. What irritates me even more is hearing this kind of people using the word “Brother”, especially if I know the idiots and what they are about. The word brother really doesn’t mean much to me anymore, I know a lot of others that can say the same thing when you have a bunch of people who have no understanding of the word and meaning, let’s face it, the word gets watered down over time and meaningless.

It has gotten so bad even in the club scene that “Brotherhood” hold very little meaning. I have to blame the clubs on this one, clubs have worried about numbers since the early 90’s instead of the quality of individual coming into the ranks. Take a look around next time you’re at an event, look at some of the individuals in some of these clubs, you will start to awaken to the fact that most are a joke, only a number to boost ranks and that badass image. Deep down I can bet you a million dollars, the club you are looking at is in turmoil, nothing but drama and backbiting. That you all is not “Brotherhood”.

Blood, Sweat, Tears. Always remember those 3 words, those are the only way you can call anyone “Brother”, you’ve had to share all three over an expanded period of time, that’s the only true way of honoring that word and the relationship it holds. The word “Brother” should embody all the emotions of the human spirit, it should define you as a person, you should be honored to have that word used in the same sentence as your name, this type of emotion is what’s missing from the current “Biker World”.

Ask yourself, what is the draw to our Lifestyle in the first place? Yes, I know, the wind and freedom bullshit. But what is really the draw to the Lifestyle? Why does everyone want to be a part of it now when in the old days it was Taboo? It’s something so simple to answer if you really look at it, people want to experience what it is like to have honor, integrity, they want to be noticed by the public as someone who holds onto something in life and fights for it. That’s what the old timers did in the day when being a biker wasn’t cool, people saw how these men stood up for what they believed in and gave society the big “Fuck You” while doing it. People have a tendency to want to copy those who put in the work of achieving something, that is why people are drawn to the biker lifestyle, they feel like this lifestyle will make them into something they cannot be all the time That’s the mentality of the weekend warrior, that’s the motivation behind everything they do.

I’ve always said that you are “A Man before anything else”. Do you have to be the biggest badass? Do you have to act like something you’re not? No, you just have to be yourself, don’t copy someone else because of an image, make the image you, tailor it to what you think it should be, most important have integrity with your word, have truth when you speak no matter the costs. Get up every day and work your ass off and achieve something that day, do it for yourself and no one else. The same goes for riding and being a biker, do it for yourself and no one else, be you. Don’t be something because that is what society thinks a biker should be, if that’s the only reason you are doing it for then know always, you will be a fake, wannabe and someone who deserves no respect at all.

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.
