Is it the Bandidos who have connections with the Cecil House up in Vancouver?

I agree with the other guy who said that posting hurtful shit on the Banditos is not a good idea even though they might not give two shits about you or anything you have to say. Good luck to you haters who know everything about everything, see you in the papers.

Well it seems to me there are alot of folks out there without a clue as to whats going on in the motorcycle community. This folks is Bandido country, plain and simple. If you go to thier web site (and i think you all should, especially if you ride a harley) you will see a map of the areas controlled by the MC. Wa is kind of a MC hot spot, with many clubs. I know a few folks that ride with various clubs, have rode with them, had beers with them,worked with them and even been asked to be a prospect (which I refuse to do). Its like any group, some are assholes, some are the coolest people you will ever meet.I knew a guy that was a prospect and he thought he was a bad ass because of it. He was acting like a moron one night flipping crap to a bunch of people, well needless to say from the next day on he wasn't so bad because the 1%ers (if you don't know what a 1%er is I can give you a heads up on that) put a stop to that right quick. Hell I'v seen some HOG members be idiots, and in that club the most hard core thing you have to do to get in is write the check for the bike! With that all said, just don't be an idiot and you won't have any trouble and if you are really that worried about it , research the ride or function you are about to attend, their web sites will tell you all the major events they will be at. -Redragon

Ya, the "powers that be" pretty much wiped their asses with that shit and everybody was like "mk, watevs". Unbelievable.
They fight so hard for amendment #2 (which I don't disagree too much about) yet #'s 4, 5, 6, 7 and 8 go out the window as soon as those become inconvenient.

being relatively new to motorcycles -- i have seen these guys at a few events -- so I asked people that I know and trust -- --
whats up with that group --

was pretty much told that they are 1%ers and have a bad reputation like Hells Angels did and still does. that they can be a nice group - but can have some people that cause more problems.

I was told that the biggest issues is that they did not go to the bike confederation and ask permission to create a motorcycle group -- that they just started flasihng their colors and trying to start issues with the Jokers and the Angels trying to prove that they were as tough and mean -- but did not have to play by the rules.

Welcome to the Biker culture.

The 1%ers have a general rule and that is "Respect Given, Respect Received"

If someone starts being an idiot and disrespecting them- they get educated...period.

Here's a great resource for you without Biker/LEO interference here that will only polarize and confuse you.

They don't join "Gangs" they join "Clubs."

I've talked with them and had a beer with them- have you?

It's all in the language and agenda of it's use.

Describe a "good" organization...Iron Pigs? Blue Knights?
They all carry guns and many have had trouble with the law- so let's condemn them all?

R.I.C.O. can go both ways...

100% of M/C clubs believe in freedom, family, brotherhood.

The Club

The intent of this section is to give you an overview of the structure and philosophy of the traditional motorcycle club (MC). This does not necessarily express the feelings or priorities of any particular club, as all motorcycle clubs differ on some points. Regardless of the basic philosophy of this group, it is important that you understand the perspectives of other clubs that you may be associating with from time to time.

If motorcycles influence your lifestyle, then you are part of the motorcycle community. Of all the types of organizations found within that community, the traditional motorcycle club stands apart and ranks highest in stature.

Respect

A serious MC club commands respect for one reason. Those who are correctly informed recognize the deep level of personal commitment and self discipline that a man has to demonstrate and sustain in order to wear a patch. They realize that a club's "Colors" are closely guarded and the membership process is long and difficult. Other factors notwithstanding, they respect Patchholders for what they have accomplished by being able to earn and keep the patch they wear. This is respect born out of recognition of dedication and accomplishment. The MC Club strives for respect for this reason. This is especially true as it pertains to those persons outside of the motorcycle community. This segment of society is by far the larger, and therefore represents a larger market for any fund raising activities that the group might undertake. It stands to reason that cultivating a relationship with these people is important, and to be perceived by them as "Biker Scum" would not be advantageous to the group. They will therefore conduct themselves as upstanding citizens in every way... "Good neighbors" so to speak. The goal is to be admired and respected by the general public rather than feared. The serious club, and all of its members and guests, will always conduct themselves publicly in a highly professional manner.

Club Colors

The general public does not draw a distinction between different club colors. In many cases, they simply can't tell the difference: we're all "Biker Scum" to them. If one club causes a problem that touches the public sector, the offending club's identity is either confused or ignored and the heat comes down on all clubs. The general public does not make the distinction between a MC and an RC (Riding Club), therefore EVERYONE needs to be aware that no matter whether they are in an MC and RC or an Independent rider, their actions reflect on all in the motorcycle community. The MC clubs tend to police themselves to avoid such incidents.

Participation

A Patchholder will not discuss any club business whether it's about membership numbers, club goings on, or any member's personal information with anyone outside of the club. They understand that they are a Patchholder 24 hours a day whether or not they are wearing their colors. Everything they say or do in public can affect the club. They also understand that if they get out of line, that they are subject to be counseled for their own good and for that of the club. Wearing a patch is more than getting together for good times. It also means getting together for the other times, too. It constitutes a lot of work. It's committing themselves to a lifestyle in which they do not look for how their brothers or sisters can help them, but for ways that they can be of help to their brothers and sisters. They always look to give rather than to receive. All of this may seem very idealistic, and in some cases it's just that. But it is an ideal that all clubs profess and are always striving for in principle and practice.

Always be aware of the "Golden Rule" of conduct while traveling in club circles: If you give respect, you'll get respect. If you act with disrespect, then you'll be treated with the same.

Levels of Commitment

When someone earns their patch, it does not mean that he or she has reached the ultimate goal and from that point they can kick back and coast. Moving from guest to probation to Patchholder is not climbing from the bottom to the top, but rather more like climbing a constantly ascending slope, and in time becoming a stronger and more committed brother or sister. A person's probationary rocker and later their patch are merely presented in recognition of what they have demonstrated along the way. In this fashion, the more senior the Patchholder is in the club and the more they experience, the more of a brother or sister they should be to all.

Purpose of Probation / Prospecting

Probation is not an initiation, as you would find in a fraternity. It is instead a period of time that is sustained until the person, in every sense, conducts themselves with the respect that is mandated to be a Patchholder. It's a time in which:

The attitude is conditioned so that he/she displays a sense of responsibility and respect toward the patch holders of the club, without which they will not develop a sense of respect for the group.

He/she is educated in basic MC protocol and etiquette.

He/she is given time to develop the habits that are basic to good security and good communications.

To get into the habit of participating.

To become accustomed to trusting the judgment, at times blindly, of those patch holders who will someday be his or her brothers and sisters.

The list could go on but the point here is to demonstrate that probationary period has definite objectives and that a person will go nowhere in the club if he/she is not aware of this and does not apply themselves to those ends. It's not possible to make a checklist of what is expected from a person in all cases. There isn't any formula for success, but the key is ATTITUDE AND RESPECT. Everything else can be learned in time, but a person's attitude comes from the heart.

Is PNW Riders a club then?
I'm not sure I want to be associating with a known M/C.
It is against the terms of my release.

Anyhow, I've cracked a beer with, and even been in the homes of many M/C club members.
I've never had an altercation with anyone wearing a patch. Some dirty stares, but never an altercation.

And was this thread really dug up just to rip on BB?

What's the story on these guys? I've come in contact with them a few times and each time has been either 1 of 2 things.

1) they're super nice and get along because i like to ride too.

or

2) they're complete dicks and want to beat my ass and/or cause trouble.

When i did a google search on them, wikipedia gives a semi description of them.



so, why don't cops target these guys more? I mean, they're internationally known for being linked with organized crime supposedly, but yet more likely, if a cop see a bandido, and a sportbike racing down the freeway, the cop will pull the sportbike over first probably even though the bandido's could possibly have warrants for him/her?

i'm not bashing on them by any means, i've met some nice ones in the past, just wanna know more info on them i guess.

There's a riding group in Kitsap that I'm part of and when the local bandito's (sp?) heard about us they invited us out to meet them and it was over-all pretty chill. The reason cops dont target them is because they are one percenters ("99% of motorcyclists were law-abiding citizens, and the last one percent were outlaws. Thus was born the term, "one percenter") and I don't think they really give cops reasons to target them. What i noticed when we met with them is that a good portion of them like sport bikes and seemed to be okay with our group just because we shared the same passion for riding. As long as we showed them respect they were okay with it =]
