|Things for a prospect to
The pride RAMC members have is founded in the good we do for
our communities and not because we're in this for an ego
boost. RAMC is not a 1% Motorcycle Club so donít try to act
like it. Our fellowship is rooted in doing right by our
community. Putting on airs and acting like an ass is not part of
our RAMC culture.
A traditional Motorcycle Club and a Moto Club are not the same. RAMC is
not a traditional Motorcycle Club; we are a moto club.
Traditional Motorcycle Clubs do not admit moped/scooter riders; RAMC does and is therefore a moto club.
- Do not refer to
someone else thatís in an Motorcycle Club as a brother.
- Do not put location rockers
on your back; RAMC does not have territories.
- Do not pretend that
you live the biker lifestyle if you donít.
- Do not pretend the
RAMC is or is equal to a 3-patch Motorcycle Club. The demands of
RAMC membership are
not as rigorous as those of a traditional Motorcycle Club. For members of
more traditional Motorcycle Clubs, the club comes first
before all else. RAMC does not require such a
commitment, so donít pretend that your commitment to
RAMC is like the commitment of traditional Motorcycle Club members.
- Do not bash or talk
trash about Motorcycle Clubs.
Our interests are riding,
doing good for our community and enjoying the fellowship of
like-minded people. We ask members to check their ego at the
door when we get together and that we treat each other with
respect. We are not a Harley or Vespa only club and we don't
give others a hard time about what they ride. We care about
the ride, our community and our fellowship and not any
perceived ego-boost gained from riding a motorcycle instead
of a scooter, riding a prestigious brand instead of a
homemade ride, riding a new
bike, riding an antique bike or having a custom bike. Again,
we're about the ride, our community and our fellowship. We
want our club to remain a focused, positive and supportive
place for our members to recharge our "batteries". We're not
interested in bringing drama into to the club.
RAMC isn't about ego or unfounded pride; we know who we are
and what we're about. Some RAMC members are not in a
position to publically identify themselves as being a RAMC
member even when they are riding. We therefore do not
publically post group pictures, publically identify RAMC
members, charter locations and do not require that members
wear patches or symbols that can easily identify them as
being a RAMC member. Again, more than anything, RAMC is
interested in your character, your attitude, your support of
your community and your enthusiasm in the ride.
If that sounds like the type of group you'd like to be a
part of, the first step in becoming a member is to join us
in a ride. We don't charge for rides and since we are a
fairly small group, rides are not a big overly-elaborate
ordeal. We meet at a chosen time and place and then we ride.
A short motorcycle ride is about 100 miles and longer rides are
miles. Motor-scooter rides are usually organized around an
If you like the people you ride with and can deal with the
ride, then you can petition for prospect status. We don't
treat prospective members poorly in order to prove themselves
to the club because if you're a prospect, you've already proved yourself
by the work you've done for your community. The length of
the time one remains a prospective member has more to do
with the prospective member's attitude than anything else.
