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.

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!”

National Council of Clubs Responds to Denver Motorcycle Expo Shooting


“The National Council of Clubs has a heightened concern with the general demeanor of some law enforcement member motorcycle clubs. The repeated public displays of violence by members of the Iron Order, combined with the conflict they infuse within society, as compared to the intended mission of law enforcement, should be a concern to all citizens, professional law enforcement and government officials everywhere.”

Trend Setters in the Biker Lifestyle


There have been many brothers out there who took the lifestyle by storm. A few traits shared among all the greats were a dedication to hard work,creativity, a no care attitude about what others thought. With those qualities in mind some very dedicated people come up. Jesse James of West Coast Choppers, Indian Larry, David Mann and Ed Roth. Yea you notice dickheads at Orange County Chopper never came up in this list. They were made by reality television and nothing else. They had no talent whatsoever in many peoples eyes. Paul who? Paulie who? Lol come on they remind me of a bunch of fags at a gay bachelor party.

Jesse James- As everyone knows Jesse Founded West Coast Choppers in the early 90’s.Jesse is one of those brothers who give the definition to work. His work ethic is something to admire. He recently started making some kick ass firearms at well at his Jesse James Firearms Unlimited Company. Jesse has brought his game when it comes to making and designing guns just like he always had with his awesome chopper builds. Plus who can’t admire a brother who came up from the street that boned Sandra Bullock, Kat Von D and other celebrity hots? All of us old scooter tramps can be proud knowing one of our own got in the pants of those ladies. Bravo I say! Besides his conquest of hot women Jesse has always stayed true to who he was. What millionaire do you know who will get down in the trenches everyday and pound iron? Jesse James is a master with metal. What’s even more cool about him is he seeks out guidance from those that came before him. I really wish that a channel would pick up on the idea he had for a show about working metal and those who do it. Hell of a show it would be. Better then those other fake ass reality shows now a days.

Ed Roth-   “expect criticism; if you can’t do it get help; you don’t need fancy tools or a fancy garage; and if you fulfill your duty Heavenly Father will bless you in what you do.” Roth not only created the famous “Rat Fink” character but he also had a hand in creating the Kustom Kulture. His pinstriping skills were of legend and he was able to bridge the gap between Hot Rods and Motorcycles. Being self educated like most of the greats this brother was able to get Mattel to produce his famous Beatnik Bandit Hot Rod.

Indian Larry- The builder among builders. He was down to earth and took pride in making sure he built the best bikes around. No he didn’t build the fancy choppers of the late 90’s and 00’s. He kept to the true chopper designs of the 70’s and 80’s. His scooters made Orange County Choppers look like bikes with training wheels.  When talking about the last chopper he built. “You don’t see bikes like this that often. That’s what I shoot for, something that’s just mind-bending”. It was that kind of vision that made his scooters. That kind of vision that made us all love them.

David Mann- Who doesn’t know of David Mann being the one inspiration why many became bikers in the first place? His motorcycle art transformed a lifestyle. I can bet every scooter tramp in the world has at least one of his prints from an Easy Riders magazine hanging on the garage wall. He caught the rebellion and brotherhood of the movement to life with his prints. Any real scooter tramp to tell right away what David was trying to say in his drawings. Mann was no poser either. Being a member of a well recognized club he often included his brothers in the print. Honor and Integrity could always be found as the message trying to be put across.

Honor and Integrity is something that has been missed out on lately with these new generations of so called bikers. Many run around having no idea what those two words mean. These people run out and get a Harley because they think it’s cool. They go around calling others brothers not knowing the meaning of what brotherhood is. That’s what the biker lifestyle has lost since the old timers of old. Being a biker was a complete lifestyle choice. It wasn’t a part time thing. It wasn’t being someone who you were not. Getting on that scooter was who you were. You became apart of the machine. Molded together as one. It wasn’t a phase that someone just went through. Hopefully one day greats like the men above can inspire the next generation to become real again.
