Riding Clubs vs Social Clubs

“Maybe you would be better off in a Social Club.”
Many people in the motorcycle community are attempting to blur the line between RC and SC.
It is true that both will socialize, talk bikes, eat and drink.
But the role of a true Riding Club is to get their members out on the road, to log some miles on their bikes. The true bonding happens on the road, when you stop after an hour of riding at some gas station, and everyone is glad for the break but also looking forward to the next leg of the trip! When after riding all day you break for lunch or dinner and after a hour find yourself wanting to get back on the bike. When your hot, sweaty and dirty but you could care less. When the ride is coming to the end and everyone wants to take the long way home.
When you talk to your Sisters and everyone agrees-We need to get together and ride!

Does the destination matter? Does there have to be a bar visit during every ride? Do the rides only happen for Bike nights? No-No and No!

So before you start gushing about wanting to join a Riding Club and wear a pretty patch on you back ask yourself: are you more interested in riding the open road or are you only interested in riding to the next bar?
Because if a bar is more appealing to you : Then maybe you should join a Social Club!

I am truly blessed to have found Sisters that share the love of the open road. But what is overwhelming is the fact that from our common love of riding we have bonded and found true friendship and Sisterhood. We place the needs of our fellow Sisters before our own, we have all proven over and over again that we will drop whatever we are doing to come to the aid and support of each other. And that closeness was born out on the open road.

Respect – Sisterhood – Loyalty
and much Love
