A motorcycle club is basically a group of people whose primary activity and interest are all about motorcycles. A motorcycle club may range from a small group of regular bikers or riders who share the same brand of motorcycle like the Harley Owners Group to larger clubs like the Banditos. But in any case, a motorcycle club always has a common goal and that is to promote and advertise motorcycles.
All the various motorcycle clubs have a common objective of promoting and maintaining a friendly competition between clubs and against other clubs or riding establishments. In some cases, these competitions are held on an annual basis, while in others they are done semi-annually. The most popular type of club is the one that organizes racing weekends for its members, where each and every weekend members can participate in different types of rallies and races. These kinds of events to help the riders to hone their driving skills, while at the same time, helps them improve their riding experience as well.
Motorcycle clubs have gained popularity among the biking community over the years because they are the ones that have contributed most to the development of the modern motorcycling industry. A lot of important names in the motorcycling industry started out as a result of some kind of a club or racing competition. Names like Suzuki, Kawasaki and BMW are testimony of this. All these companies started as members of some sort of a motorbike club or riding group. Over the years, these companies turned into successful biker companies because of the group affiliations and the friendship established among the biker riding enthusiasts.
These motorcycle groups offer the bikers a place to meet and ride safely. Without these groups, the bikers might not be able to enjoy the freedom of riding, without being afraid of anyone who is driving on the streets. The biker gangs have helped to make the sport more popular than it used to be, because the fear of traffic has been completely eradicated. This has made the sport even more popular all over the world.
The most important thing about the Motorcycle Clubs is that they make it possible for all the members to participate and ride in events, without breaking any local laws. The fact that these motorcycle clubs allow everyone to join, without any restrictions makes them popular with people of all ages. The law-abiding members of these clubs are respected by all other drivers, and even the driver of an automobile, if he or she were to meet a member of such a club. The law-abiding members of the Motorcycle Clubs do not fear the police because they know that the police do not have the power to arrest them just because they are a member of a Motorcycle Club. In fact, the police are forced by the law to respect the rights of the Motorcycle Club and will not arrest the members of the clubs simply because they are a member of a Motorcycle Group.
Another reason why Motorcycle Clubs has gained popularity all over the world, is that they prevent the introduction of sexual identity or lookalike drivers into the motorcycle clubs. It is illegal to introduce such persons in clubs because they can change their physical appearance to make themselves look more like real motorcyclists. These sexual identity lookalikes include but are not limited to: masks, wigs, hairpieces, and clothes. All of these things can be used by people who wish to change their name, look, or gender to match their true physical identity.
