1.You DO have to have a scooter,generally a HD.This is the basis of our club nature to start with.We are MOTORCYCLE CLUBS...not car,truck,or sidewalk clubs.Many 1% clubs require you sign over your title of your bike when you prospect.
2.Being a biker is not all it takes tho.You must be a man of integrity.You must be prepared to give up your freedom or possibly your life for your Club.You must not be a RAT nor a liability in any way.
3.Most members are Anglo.There are many Hispanic and Native members as well.I my self am mixed Anglo/Native.
3.ABSOLUTLEY NO SLAMMING/SMOKING OF HARD DRUGS!!!! If caught you will generally lose your patch and everything that goes with them.ie,patch,bike,tattoos and possibly some teeth.
My personal opinion on this is no hard drugs period.Snorting can control you just as well as the other.But this is just my opinion.I dont do any of it.
4.Nobody wants a pedophile around.But how do you know one until its too late?If one is found,refer to above post as far as penalty,perhaps even a little more severe.
5.We dont want cops either.See #2...a Rat is a rat is rat.....
In short you must be a biker who is a cut above the rest to ride with the best.
Nomad status is usually given to members who have been in the club for some time.All the 1% club have Nomad chapters.These members are trusted long time members and usually given the task of internal club policing.Nomad means exactly what it means...nomadic biker...not tied to any one chapter and only answerable to the mother chapter.In some clubs,the nomad chapter IS the mother chapter.
There is also a club called the Nomads MC.
I have seen several posts by people here writing the same old media slop painting us as criminal sydicates.These people are full of shit.DC seems to be the only one with any real grasp on it and he has a lot to learn.Society,the media and law enforcement have painted us as criminal organizations to justify their inflated budgets.They create hype in order to insure job security.
As for the guy killed at Altamount,it did not have anything to do with the guy being black.He pulled a gun.When someone pulls a gun on you,you can do 1 of 2 things.You can die or you can kill the motherfucker.This does not matter who or what you are.
I hope I have provided you with a little insight into our world.You will notice I have given you this info for free as opposed to books or movies who are after your money.
Truth as I know and have lived it.
I always thought that the Hells Angels Nomads were the enforcers for the club and like you say they aren't tied to any chapter.
I have a mate who was the Sargent at arms for the Hells Angel in Adelaide until the law eventually caught up with him and sent him to prison for a few years.
