Many people have been inspired to become a motorcyclist after watching the FX television series ‘Sons of Anarchy’. If you want to join a motorcycle club, then they must go through several steps. Here you will know all about joining a motorcycle club.
Learn the pros and cons of motorcycle clubs
Before you join a motorcycle club, you should know the pros and cons of the club so that you can understand whether the club is for you or not. For instance, if you can’t make time for it and the club requires you to fulfill a certain target to keep your membership, then the club is not for you.
In that case, you need to look for clubs that are more flexible. If there is any rivalry between the clubs, then you may decide not to join the club.
Buy a motorcycle
Before joining a club, you should have your motorcycle and know how to ride. Else, you will not benefit from joining such a club. All the club members are required to have basic riding skills which will eventually improve once you become a member of these clubs.
Know the rules
You should know the rules of the club by heart. Otherwise, you may lose your membership. The clubs have strict rules and adhering to the rules is essential. Otherwise, you may be penalised or even disqualified as a member.
Being respectful of others, fulfilling the pre-requisites, and attending meetings regularly are some of the basic rules of the club.
Talk to the members of the club
Before joining the club, you should talk to the members of the club. That way you will get to know about the club activities and also show your interest to join the club.
Sometimes clubs are full, and they don’t want to accept any new member. If you can become friendly with an existing member, then that member can recommend you for a membership of the club.
Do the paperwork
You should fill out the registration form and pay the money once you have decided to join the motorcycle club. You may need to show several documents as proof of identity and other things.
Membership at a motorcycle club can give you the pride of becoming part of the motorcycle community. You will also become a good motorcyclist by joining the club.
