Independent Biker Doesn't Want His Butt Kicked By MCs. Can I wear 3-piece HD rocker safely?

I have huge respect for motorcycle clubs, but have no interest in joining one nor, honestly, do I think I'd ever be invited to be a prospect. I love riding simply for the thrill of it and the 70's Easy Rider type of therapy. I ride every day – not a RUB or weekend warrior.

I have a three-piece on my back but the top rocker is "Harley Davidson", center patch is a skull and bottom rocker is "motorcycles." I also have front patches "Biker Dad", "Arizona" on the front.

From what I've experienced, MC members are really cool and fun. That's just my experience showing up to a watering hole. As long as you show respect, you're good.

I just don't want to unintentionally break any codes next time I show up with my jacket and patches. They're ALL not even close to resembling an MC's brand but still want to be safe and respectful.

Maybe have a HOG patch? Harley Owners Group, just a simple brand of bike notice that means some dealer discounts on bits and pieces, A 'Riders Association' emblem like Triumph or Vintage BMW patch in the center. Skull may get a few clubs notice- Sons OF Anarchy Tshirts and bad attitude has gotten some people thumped and cycles taken, others just get laughed at.
Dave:
It's how you act not how you look that will get you in trouble. You aren't wearing a club patch so no one will get on your case about that. However you will get your *** kicked it you try and pretend you are part of group who are club members. I would never go in a bar dominated by a club wearing biker style gear. They will think you are a poser and likely not treat you well.
Simon:
I encountered a disapoveal from an MC over a top a bottom rocker on some hoodies a large group on us used to wear, luckily we knew someone who knew someone in the MC and we managed to resolve their issue, all they asked us to do was make the top and bottom text flat, i.e. Not a rocker,

Although people have said above " this isn t tv" read on

just for the record I am not part of an MC or MCC,

However I respect them and their rules, where we are, MCs like their respect, and if they feel disrespect has happened it could get ugly, my advice would be to speak to one of the members and ask to speak to one of top guys about it, take your Harley top in you bag and ask if it s acceptable to them – Thet will a;precise you asking and I m sure they will be fine with it

Fred:
I don't think I could call myself "Independent" and in the next sentence worry about displaying some patch that implies publically displaying that you are reaching out to a group mindset or association.

So what is it? MINUMUM … at least stop using the adjective "Independent" to describe yourself!

And while your at it , Mr. Independent Biker, Stop coming in here asking the approval of the 'Fashion Police' what you can wear!

Are you afraid of wearing a "Naked " motorcycle jacket back panel?

AND WHY? OH! WHY? Are you taking money out of your own pocket to promote the HARLEY DAVIDSON MOTORCYCLE CORPORATION at YOUR EXPENSE? WHY?

PLEASE! PLEASE! Stop demeaning the word "INDEPENENT" so some of us that have the smallest comprehension remaining of the word still can place some value in the use of the word.

Been riding for about 55 yrs. Never needed or wanted any of that garbage patch sh!t.

Make up your mind Poser. You are dealt the cards, bet or fold.

Erika Joan MacInnis:
Dude wear what you want, if you are that worried then don't make eye contact, there are specific things you can do to avoid confrontation from dipshits.
Joe:
You're not in a shiitty t.v. show.

Bikers don't go around beating up boneheads and posers……unless you ask for it.

Erik:
It's hard to imagine anyone giving you a hard time just for wearing something like that.
guardrailjim:
If you are that concerned, get rid of the rocker patches.
Do you ride to have fun, or to look cool (that's the definition of a poser)
Vulcan:
it is up to who you run across when you ride
personally I do not care what you wear
You should be ok.
