Now a vest on the other hand is USUALLY only warn while wearing a 3 piece suit or a tuxedo. Its a completely unecessary piece of clothing. Its also useless while riding a motorcycle which has always baffled me as to how a leather vest became the symbol of a motorcycle club as it serves no purpose whatsoever. Either way, wearing a vest in crowd means you went out of your way to adorn yourself with said vest and are attempting to be recognized as such.
It became a symbol simply because it is superfluous. It can be worn over a jacket and easily worn without one.

No "education" needed;

I can't list the number of times I've seen someone talk about starting a club, and all the MC members jump out of the woodwork with "you better check with COC or you can't without COC approval" yada yada yada.

That's all fine and good if you want a "sanctioned" club.. but otherwise it ain't nobody's bidness.

When you have legal rights and regulations, enforceable by law, about calling yourself a "motorcycle club", then we'll talk.

The vest allows you to wear your clubs patches and colors without having to sew them on your riding jacket. Wearing the vest in a crowd is a way for you to show support for your club and get your name out there. It is possible to wear said vest and actually be a decent human being. Let's get real popo most of us in some way or another has worn, modified, or whatever to stand out

With all of the thinly veiled threats like this, I find it very hard to believe that every MC club member isn't Billy steroidal badass just waiting to pound anyone who says anything derogatory about his club.


Just saying, the image being portrayed isn't one of a decent human being.

Have u ever met me? Ask anyone who has. I assure u I don't think I'm billy badass. I actually try very hard to get ppl to like me. I mean insult my family and friends and ya ill get my feathers ruffled. But that has nothing to do with a MC. I am constantly doing charity work for animal shelters and clinics. I donate to a lot of good causes.

Nope, I haven't met you, but I've noticed your presence in all of these MC threads. This says to me that you've read the countless "why don't you say that to a member's face" threats, and haven't done anything to suggest that you wouldn't get your teeth punched in for doing so. So at the very least, you're complicit with the reputation being attributed to MC members.

I reserve my MH shirt to preserve it. I know exactly what you're saying, which is why I said I don't have a problem with it. I have actually worn it when I wasn't riding (once or twice), but the kilt on the other hand can invite just as many questions or criticism from other people as well. I don't care and am happy to answer any of the questions that have been given to me. "Are you from Scotland?", me "No", "then why wear the kilt?", me "this kilt was made here in America, besides, the kilt was not created by the Scottish, it is Norwegian by design, the Scotts just made it colorful and popular" all while speaking in my best Scottish accent.

Really, the COC is a GOOD thing...otherwise do you REALLY want the government and taxing you on your PATCH and making you trademark it?
No. What I want is to be able to do whatever I want without some self-appointed council telling me I can't because they said so.

When you have legal rights and regulations, enforceable by law, about calling yourself a "motorcycle club", then we'll talk.
The reason the recommendation is given that you check with the CoC is because some clubs, shall we say, aggressively defend their colors. If you were new to Texas (and borderline retarded) and wanted to start your own club with red and yellow as your colors, for example, you would find out very quickly and quite possibly painfully that those colors are very much taken. A similar, but far more likely painful, reaction would occur were you to use red and white - especially if you were stupid enough to use a skull in profile as your center patch.

The CoC is there to provide guidance for new clubs.

No - you don't HAVE to go through them, but it does make life a little easier when you're out and about. Granted, eventually word would get around that you were just a bunch of ignorant slickbacks who didn't know better, but until that time, you could find yourself dealing with a lot of uncomfortable situations.

Do as you wish man - that is certainly your choice and I respect and support it. However, in an area like Houston where you're in one of the big boy's back yards, its not a good idea to simply ignore protocol.
